Hazy Days

For the past weeks, the national topic for Singapore has been the haze caused by forest fires from Sumatra, Indonesia.

Since it’s an issue concerning everyone, it’s hard not to follow the latest news, with everyone around the corner talking about it, especially last week, which was the haziest time for us with the PSI index hitting 400 for the first time. Above 300 means the air quality is hazardous to health. At first, it was quite interesting to see colleagues around me go paranoid. I wasn’t really concerned about the haze until i got caught up with their talks. Then that sense of fear crept into me 😦

The change in wind direction blew the haze away and things improved since the last weekend. Now they are fearing it will come back again. Hmm.

烟雾朦胧遮盖了蓝天白云,
炎日的太阳怎么都看不见。
臭气弥漫逐渐充满了空隙,
必备口罩否则健康没保障,
很可惜排了好久都买不到,
人心惶惶环境污染的影响。
人造雨不是根本的解决方案,
不如帮助农夫改变烧芭习惯。
来去匆匆阴霾随风而散去,
心灵的黑暗何时才能点亮?
