PSI 150. Pretty shocking.
When this haze phase began a couple of weeks back (I think), and up to the point of PSI 50, I kinda enjoyed the smokey smell. To me it represented a thousand things, none of which I could have identified. A memory hotpot.
But when the haze reached it's unprecedented critical levels these past couple of days, my senses have been screaming OVERKILL every time I stepped out of the house.
I don't remember the last major haze in 1998 (again, I think) as this bad. Decreased visibility of the opposite block when its 50m away is terrible.
My father was suggesting we should put in a compensation claim to Indonesia for this. For what though? For us carrying on with our lives with nothing changing except that we bitch about the haze all day and develop coughs and breathing problems? Let's be real here shall we. Unless the health guys say the condition is too bad so please stay at home and don't go to school/work, we nothing to claim from them. Unless we're struck with mass bronchitis, of which I'm not hearing any news. Besides, I'm sure most of the relevant authorities are already working round the clock to catch the culprits. People often forget the size of our country. Just because we find murderers within half a week of the crime doesn't mean others can.
We have to learn to stop blaming others.
