Haze again

The annual haze is back again. I hate the haze. It affects everyone's health and I have no idea how long I can stand this heavily polluted air every year. The air is not pleasant to breathe in either, as it smells like smoke.

These photos were taken yesterday morning along Brooke Drive and the API could well be easily 100++. This is categorized as unhealthy level and I do not dare to go for any physical activities. I believe the haze is also responsible to trap the heat and causing the weather to be bloody hot.

Well, the worse haze I ever experience was in 1997 where the API was well off the chart at 800++. Anyone still had such memory?

Wow, even Sibu also not spared the haze! I'm in Penang since monday and just come back from Penang yesterday. The haze there is quiet bad in Penang during the period too. Again same old culprits ... slash & burn of farmland and wind directions
