Smoking Ban Challenges.短篇英文翻譯

Smoking ban challenges traditions in Hong Kong:

Beneath the glare of the mahjong parlor's white fluorescent tubes and

roving security cameras, a grizzled, 70-year-old pro clatters his tiles

against the table, a cigarette burning slowly between his lips.

"Ban or no ban, it's not going to stop me,'' Mr, Liu declared, puffing

smoke into the air in a parlor crowded with smokers noisily sorting

marked tiles into winning combinations as they play the classic

Chi-nese game of mahjong.

After close to a decade of political wran-gling and fervent industry

opposition, Hong Kong has followed the lead of European countries

such as lreland and several major U.S. cities by banning smoking in most

public place.

    禁煙法令挑戰香港傳統:

    在麻將館的白色日光燈管和來回環視的監控攝影機下,一位滿頭灰髮的70歲職業玩家鏗鏘有聲地將他的牌打在桌上,香煙在他的唇間慢慢燃燒。「管他禁令不禁令,都無法阻止我(抽煙)!」盧先生宣稱,往麻將館的空氣中噴了口煙,麻將館內人生鼎沸,聚集了許多玩著中國的經典遊戲麻將吵鬧著尋找胡牌組合的煙槍們。

    經過將近十年的政治爭辯以及業界強烈的反對,香港追隨歐洲國家如愛爾蘭及幾個美國主要城市的腳步,通過多數公共場所的禁煙法令。
