You can smell the haze in Seremban

The haze right at this moment in Seremban is really awful.

You can actually smell it! It makes my throat feel scratchy. It also gets indoors through window openings.

My poor Buddyboy got nowhere to hide, he has resorted to parking himself between the back of his kennel and the hedge and lying low with his brown nose wedged underneath. Maybe he is smarter than most of us, the air at the lowest point is probably the freshest you can get right now.

And I hope the situation tomorrow will not get any worse than today.

Because the kids are celebrating children's day at school and there'll be some outdoor activities plus lots of moving about due to the parties, mini-concert and a magician making a guest appearance to entertain them.

Of course it doesn't bother them - the haze, I mean. They'll be too excited with a day off normal classwork to notice it. I sure hope they don't come down with a case of conjunctivities this time around - the last great haze saw an outbreak of red eyes among the kids at school and mine were not spared either.

And also late last month, I've seen a resurgence of chickenpox infections among schoolkids here. And this haze no doubt will cause respiratory problems to those susceptible.

Strangely - our government is somewhat nonchalant about this hazy problem this year. Even the major newspapers are not giving it much prominence unlike years past. I wonder why?

You can also smell it here in KL. But thank God for the short burst of rain during lunchtime which helped a little. I'm going to S'ban tomorrow for haze. I don't think it will be a reason for postponement of cases though! LOL!

Smell it? You can frickin' taste it in KL!!

Year after year this crap happens, as our powers-that-be sit on their butts twiddling their.. nevermind.

Sometimes this "good neighbor" crap is taken a little too damn far... Countries have been invaded for lesser reasons...

I can't go out without having my eyes becoming itchy and teary. It's just as bad [if not worse] here in KL!

The thing I feared had come to pass - I just got back from the clinic - one of the kids got conjunctivities and it's bad. Like one-eyed dragon now, all swollen & red. *Sigh* (Bracing myself for more to come..)

So, folks - take care & drink lots and lots of plain fresh water.

If u are fasting, better stay indoors as much as u can.

We should have sent our troops to help douse the fires than sending them thousands of kilometres away to keep peace. I believe the haze problem is much more urgent than the mid east standoff.
