    anyway i was just implying that due to my smoking, i got a chance to "shoot" this fella and not to encourage anyone to pick up this habit.

    No offence Richie, just that i think i better make it clear cos there just might be people here who will take offence or misunderstand bro.

    guess it was my mistake to put up that offensive "title"

    Because I have personally seen people (not saying you of course) who smokes at their window area and simply flick their cigarette ash downstairs. Very often, the ash will not end up downstairs, but in the unlucky neighbour's home a few floors below.

    I was even once almost hit by a empty box, while walking along the void deck (Old Airport Rd). Another time, while sitting in the car, a empty cigarette box hit my windscreen (Eunos).

    Now don't get me wrong, I smoke too

    But I feel smokers should be more responsible (again, I am not implying you're not) if all smokers just spare a thought for non-smokers, we wouldn't see all the silly bans on smoking.

    Anyway, kinda out of point here, just wish to take the opportunity to remind all smokers to be more responsible when it comes to disposing their cigarette ash/butt/boxes.

    Cheers!

    Thank you guys, I wish there are more responsible smokers like you guys. I can understand that smoker's can't control the air pollution, but I don't understand why they can't choose not to litter with their ashes and butts.

    But a friend of mine made a good point to me the other day. How come so few establishments put ashtrays (or bins with ashtrays) in smoking corners?

    Anyway, I took the liberty of putting quotes around the word 'good' in the title to prevent mis-understanding.
    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    Hi Mervin, in this case, then really no issue, it's your own place.
    Totally agree with Vinz about the lack of ashtray/bins around.
