Cigarettes are nasty business. As an ex-smoker, I can confidently say that I’m glad to be ten years past that addiction. The smell, the discoloration, the slow but steady erosion of your health - I don’t miss any of that.
I do miss how cool they looked, though. Of course, it helps to be young, stylish and Cantonese.
Look at that guy - he’s wearing a knit cardigan with lapels. Where can I get a cardigan with lapels? I took this photo in 2007 and these two still look as if they’re five years ahead of the game.
Except for the cigarettes, though. Already they seem old-fashioned.
