    Default Small fire at Far East Shopping Centre

    Guess today was my unlucky day. I was in the office today at Far East Shopping Centre and my colleague smelled smoke. We were out of the office and we were heading to the stair case but it was full of smoke and I had to go back to the office to get a wet cloth. Anyway manage to get down with all my colleagues but my eyes were watering. Turns out there was small fire in the dustbin chute and it was sending smoke up. The building was declared safe after and hour.

    Yeah Ok. But the smoke reminded me of the tear gas I went through when I was in NS. Eyes were watering.
