Haze Days

A thick haze hangs over Singapore this week, the result of forest fires in South Sumatra. Whenever I open a window the acrid smell of smoke assaults my senses. Visibility is noticeably affected, as if I've suddenly been transported to Silent Hill.

This is definitely not a good week to be outdoors. Neighborhood joggers have given up their runs or taken to treadmills in air-conditioned gyms. I'm not wishing for Typhoon Milenyo, but a little rain would be great right now.

Of course Singapore, as always, is thoroughly prepared with an official Haze Action Plan.
