God I never know why some people write multiple posts obsessing about masks and how rebellious they are for not wearing one. "Not wearing a mask" is not a personality. Nobody cares.
Philipppines now only has mandatory mask wearing on public transport. It appears nobody got the email. Even my friend was surprised when I told her! Pretty much 100 percent wearing inside and about 90 percent outside. HK will be the same even if they drop it... probably go back to being handed a mask on the bus if not wearing one like I was in early 2020!
If there is one place where wearing masks is not stupid, it's in public transport. Anyway, live and let live, what I find more annoying is those thinking themselves wiser for the choices they make. Plenty of good reasons to wear masks outside from keeping the sun off your face, to being anonymous, to slightly reducing the amount of pollution that goes into your lungs. Some expats may laugh at locals wearing masks outdoors, some locals also have a good laugh at expats looking like crispy pork or char siu on the beach.
Please tell me you were kidding about that part.
