Smoke Free KL?

Vientiane, the capital of Laos will be host to the 25th Edition of SEA Games in December this year. I was browsing the SEA Games website and foud this good news.


We in Malaysia say if they can do it, why can't we. Now I am asking if Vientaine can become a smoke free city, why can't Kuala Lumpur?. Health is everybody's right. But his/her right is being sodomised (ooppssss) daily by inconsiderate people nearby. And one of them is smokers. I just couldn't think why most smokers are so inconsiderate to other people. They just light up when and where they like sending unhealthy toxic tainted smoke to innocent by standers around them.


I would become restless whenever at eating outlet and someone smokes. And worse still the smoke blowing into my direction. I will always hold my breathe until the smoke flow past or at times when the smoke keep coming in, I will curse silently because I have to turn away my head tp breathe. They are so inconsiderate.


So how nice if Kuala Lumpur can create a smoke free city too.


Picked the news below from HERE.


KPL) Vientiane Capital will become a smoking free area city by upcoming month.


The move is under the preparation which expects to be announced early this August, Vice Vientiane Mayor said.

The meeting on preparation for Vientiane to be the smoking free area city took place on 24 July under the chairmanship of Vice Vientiane Mayor, Mr Somvandy Nathavong who responsible for controlling the establishment of non-smoking area in Vientiane Capital.

Participants have discussed the way for cooperating in implementation of smoking free area in Vientiane Capital so as to welcome the upcoming 25th SEA Games and celebration of 450th anniversary of Vientiane Capital.
