SNAPSHOT | Baguio City: Smokers beware!


Something to be aware of when in Baguio.

I was leisurely walking along Gov. Pack Road, on our way to an event at the back of SM City Baguio   when I saw this sign, and the signs, I later realized, are posted all over the city! I learned, though, that one can smoke in designated smoking areas only.

Hence you should ask your hotel, restaurants where you dine in, and other establishments regarding the designated smoking areas to avoid being apprehended and pay a fine.

For the smokers out there, if you feel the urge while walking along the parks and Session Road, that stick of cigarette can wait.  Munch a boiled corn sold in the parks, have a candy, or whatever that can satisfy your oral fixation.   Better be forewarned and stay away from the hassle while on vacation or on official business.  Now, there are three (3) major cities banning smoking--which starts with Davao City, the entire Metro Manila, and now, Baguio City.

Aside from my day job, I love photography and storytelling. Going places--be it a cliche destination or the far side of the road--stoke and free my soul. I dig deeper into the people’s psyche, culture and ethnicity, and heritage. I love to observe how they thrive and build social institutions, preserve their culture and traditions.

Nyah bawal na rin pala sa Baguio, yung sa Manila diba may restraining order?

Ito yung nagustuhan ko talaga dati sa Davao, galing sana madagdagan pa mga lugar na magiimplement nito.

good thing with Baguio, they have designated smoking areas... Legazpi City and Naval Biliran also implement this, but they don't have designated smoling areas...

Ding said...

@Lakwatsera and Mervin, indeed! Good move for Baguio City.

This should be replicated to our place. Political will and people's cooperation is the key to implement this one.:-).

Ding said...

Indeed, Bonz!

i'm not a smoker, hindi ako affected nito.

Awesome move! Baguio desperately needed/needs this. Especially malamig sa Baguio. Hindi basta umaakyat ang usok, it stays within the surroundings. I smoke occasionally, but I don't have any problems not lighting up if it ain't allowed.

Ding said...

That's true Gay. Same here, and I think I am a responsible one...hehe.

Ding said...

@Dee. Good for you! Thanks for the visit!
