Yin only ever smoked at work.
The cigarette smoke helped hide the stench of the morgue, where she worked as a funeral makeup artist.
It was an unusual calling, but bringing out the beauty in death was her gift. Though, it made her dating life very tricky.
She told white lies to Kwan, her boyfriend, to hide the true nature of her job. They were starting to unravel.
