… because it's BAACCCKKKKKKKKKK! the haze!
er…. not only your eyes of course but your mouth, your nose as well IF you don't wear a mask. er… but if you wear a mask, the mask only covers your mouth and nose, so the smoke will still get in your eyes. huh? so i guess if you don't want smoke in your eyes, how? wear sunglasses? or just glasses? of course, it might reduce the smoke get into your eyes but still not completely of course. oh well, even with mask… or certain kind of mask, you can't really completely stop the smoke particles (esp. the tiny ones) from getting into your nose/mouth and thus your lungs. read from says malaysia to find out for yourself whether masks will really protect you or what kind of mask is better.
the big news now in our country, malaysia, is the haze, caused by forest burning in indonesia. our neighbour, singapore was first hit bad with over 400 API reading but later on we were shocked when muar town in johor state, hit a skyhigh record of over 700 API! so much so that the town has to be declared emergency. thank god, at the time of writing now, it is very much lower already.
oh no! yesterday, it looks like the haze is blowing north now… to my hometown, where i am now – penang! HELP! it's not that bad yet. the API was about 80 reading in USM area, i notice from this website. do bookmark this website to go back to check API reading of various locations.
