See? How could anyone deny a man some BBQ when it looks that delicious?

+1

Was thinking about this when at the pool today, where there was a lady yapping away on her mobile phone for an extended period of time, and last week a guy on the deck chair next to me show started smoking a cigarette.

I looked for the sign that used to list the pool rules, but it was taken down when they redid the pool area. Then I thought, we really don't need (even more) rules, people just have to have some common sense and respect for their neighbors.

The sad fact that some in Singapore choose not to exhibit this respect is no reason to stoop to that level.

So I don't think the OP's original question was off base.

Slightly off-then-on-again tangent.

I was in NTUC earlier then I noticed a small barbecue set. It's basically just a small aluminum pan with a grill (and it also includes firestarters; not sure if it included charcoal, though; can't remember). It said on the label (something like) for porch or indoor cooking.

This is a sign! :mrgreen:

That's genius man. Use it indoors with the windows shut, then your neighbours will have nothing to complain about! :lol:

It is fine to BBQ on the balcony if I get an invitation.

Yet, Asian wives for generations have used charcol burners (the round firebrick type) for their woks and griddles without ill effects. Of course, they have enough sense to open the windows. :-|
