Love All, Serve All – Even Smokers

Just like most major cities, Tokyo is getting more and more Smokers un-friendly. You can’t just huff and puff anywhere you like. One has to smoke at designated spots else you’ll be fined. Something which I am all for and support – eventhough I am a smoker myself. So, if you’re in need to smoke around Ueno or Roppongi – be sure to head over to a Hard Rock Cafe. You’ll be able to smoke your heart out (pun intended) with free flow of Ice Tea at ¥400 and fries at ¥600. You can’t get deadlier than that – ciggy and fries. No doubt.

See that ugly pink phone above? That’s a rental. Visitors to Tokyo can rent a 3G phone with simcard for ¥205 per day. All in-coming calls are free but outgoing calls are charged at ¥105 per minute. They only had 2 pink ones left – so we took both. Its a Vodafone and its girly as hell! Damn, I need some Marlboro in the photo to man this up!

    LOL!!! Pink phones i wouldn’t have been complaining if that was the only color choice left, i think i would have quickly taken it up! Didn’t you hear that pink on guys is a growing trend lots of guys are starting to take up the pink choice of color and honestly I think a pink guy looks cool!! so you’ve got my both thumbs up on the pink phones and i think actually carrying them around and using them was being man enough!

    I agree with the smoking in designated areas of restaurants/cafes etc and getting a fine for smoking in non-designated areas (consideration for other people) at least they still have consideration for both sides in Japan still. Here in Australia we used to be able to smoke at cafes and restaurants in designated outside areas now they have completely banned smoking for all bars,cafes and restaurants so no more enjoying a cigarette with a cup or coffee or chilled beer! Cigarette with fries hmmmmmz…. don’t know about that =S but continuous supply of ice tea sounds good!! =D

    With cigarette prices going up again here in Oz to 13AUD a pack soon to 20AUD a pack by 2012 perhaps its time to try and quit again! So true, smokers becoming outcasts… personally i think its a pretty nasty habit to have!!

      Yup. You will definitely not complain having a pink phone. Wow! 20AUD a pack? Are they putting jamaican grass in it or something? Madness. Then again, that won’t happen here in Malaysia. Simply because, if the Government increased the price of ciggy way too high, it will just encourage smuggling and sale of illegal ciggies. 🙂
