Matta haze, ‘daisuki des’, not!
Translation of title, “haze again, ‘love it’, not!” Ahhh Malaysians are ‘blessed’ with haze every once in awhile every year. It’s when people have to wear masks to walk around outside without breathing the white particles. It’s when people who have respiratory problems are forced to stay in doors for fear of choking for that wonderful floating smoke.
Yesh indeed…. What is haze you ask? Ahhh…it is the lovely phenomenon that Malaysians get to ‘enjoy’ every once in awhile every year as I’ve said! It’s that lovely phenomenon that occurs when our clever neighbors Indonesia, with their clever citizens, decide that “Now why the heck should I spend crap loads of cash to cultivate a farming area? I’ll just set fire to this part of the forest, wait for the local authorities to put it out a few days later! My, I’m so clever even Einstein will salute me and hand me his noble prize!”
Ahhh… as the headlines in the newspaper reads “Indonesia burns, Malaysia chokes” and all too true. Playing sports outdoors is difficult because you breath in more white stuff rather than oxygen, its no surprise people who have breathing problems are having well, problems. The average room temperature is a living nightmare, that is, it’s a nightmare and we are living with it. Ahh...the joys of haze. Please do thank our Indonesian neighbors profusely, without them all this wouldn’t come to pass.
