口罩 (not 口交)


I have to be careful when I buy pollution masks. My pronunciation and accent aren't very good in Chinese, so it's easy for me to confuse 口罩 with 口交. You don't want to go into a store and ask the clerk for the wrong one.

There are many different kinds of pollution masks to choose from. I started out buying the disposable ones from 7-11 and Family Mart (I think they were about NT$23 each). Then I moved on to 3M 8511 and 3M 8577 when the pollution in Taichung got really bad about two years ago. Now I'm using a Respro Techno, which has replaceable filters. I like it a lot because:

1. It makes me look like Bane from The Dark Knight Rises

2. The the strap around my neck lasts a long time, and so do the filters. In the long run, it should be more environmentally friendly.
