大煙

大煙 = daaih yin: big smoke

Ever wondered why on some days, it's too smoggy to see across the harbour?
Perhaps this has something to do with it.


The exhaust fumes from ferries are so foul that the outside walls of the ferry piers are black with soot in places. And ferries are just a fraction of the boat traffic that uses the harbour as a highway.


Lungful of carbon monoxide with your sea breeze, anyone?
