It’s really happening. I have been blogging about it. Hong Kong will be banning smoking in public areas, bar some places.

Anti-smoking activists were disappointed the bill was watered down to give an exemption until mid-2009 to some of the worst smoking blackspots catering to adults over 18 such as bars, saunas, nightclubs and mahjong parlours.

Apart from that, from Jan 2007, no more smokey restaurants, yay!
