The Haze, back with a vengeance.

Every year, the haze will come back to us. 
The wind blowing towards us... The lack of rain... 

After a few days of breathing in dust, and itchy eyes.. this time around, it got really terrible, with the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) hitting a new record of 400, on 21 Jun 2013.
Anything above 300 is considered, Hazardous.

The following picture, cheered me up a little.



Anyway, forecast for 23 Jun 2013, was predicted to be in the very unhealthy range of 200 to 300.

Got myself a mask (not the better N95) but just to prevent myself from breathing in too much of the unwanted particles.


I think i looked more handsome with half the face covered up. (Haha!)

Let's hope it rains, or the fire in Indonesia gets better.

Meanwhile, to all, tons of water, take care!
