Almost everyone in blogosphere seem to have a posting on the haze, I might as well add mine to the growing list.
Well, i would like to announce something...
PENANG IS RELATIVELY HAZE FREE!!!
I know this will not last long though... the haze will drift over here sooner or later. I also forsee some of KLites will be moving to Penang for the weekend. Ho-hum... there goes the Penang traffic.
I cannot really celebrate as I really sympathise with the people in the Klang valley. I remember the terrible haze in 1997 and 1998. This is supposed to be the monsoon period for the West coast but leh... there have been no rain for the past 2 months, albeit the intermittent showers here and there. Moreover, the wind is now blowing from the South. Something is very wrong with our weather. This is made worse by the opening burning that is happening in Sumatra.
Stupidlah... Why do they need to carry out slash and burn to clear the land in Indonesia? Maybe we should bill the Indonesian government and the companies that are responsible for the open burning for every cost Malaysians incur that are directly and indirectly related to the haze! What do you think?
Write to your local newspapers and MPs. Let them know how you feel. If not, by the time October comes, we would all be sick by then.
Follow the doctors advise: Drink lots of water, eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Stay indoors.
Btw, someone has started a anti-haze pictorial petition here. Malaysian still have sense of humor in times of adversity. :)
