As much as efforts are being made to make Orchard Road a smoke-free zone, there are still other areas for the National Environment Agency to consider (Warnings for lighting up in no-smoking zone to end, March 30).
I was at Orchard Towers with a friend a few days ago, and I was shocked when I realised that people were smoking at every floor of the building.
They were doing so openly inside an air-conditioned mall, an act which was prohibited a long time ago.
The only place where there was no smoking was, surprisingly, inside the pubs themselves.
When I asked a staff member working at one of the pubs, he said that it was the norm.
How can such things be happening right under our noses without any action being taken?
