[NEWS] Smoke-free in HK...

...well, smoke-free for this Irish bar called Dublin Jack (free registration to read). Wow, I forgot how lucky we were in Ireland to be in smoke-free restaurants and pubs, and having to say that I wanted to be in the no-smoking section, was always something I nearly forget to say when I go for food... until the waitress asks that is. ;)
Many folks in HK still smoke like mad, and strong cigs they are as well. So this will be very hard to get people's mindset to not smoke in a bar, pub and/or restaurant. It's a start though. No more smelly clothes and hair, people. :)
