This time of the year, we all know we will be having this haze attack. Red bright sun in the evening, hazy views, visibility turns low, smelly air, itchy nose, sneezes and so on.
It was a big deals more than 10 years back, it was so bad back then until the government had declared emergency. I don’t quite remember when was that, it was when I’m in primary 6 or early secondary school years. Anyone remember when?
The visibility was so low that time even in the house. Schools were closed if I’m not mistaken. Masks were selling like crazy and I remember my dad brought back some industrial masks, so many types! *LOL* Those masks were very expensive! However, we didn’t wear it, it’s so uncomfortable.
Nowadays, it seemed not a very big deal, everyone as if comes to term that this thing will surely happen and we can’t do anything about it. Even though we do complain, we still going around doing our daily activities without any problem unlike last time.
In fact, I have no idea how to deal with this problem. However, what I do not understand is that why some stupid people can’t stop burning at their own backyards during this time of the year? They know that the air quality is already bad yet they still want to burn their garden waste or whatever at their backyard. Why? Why make things worst? You don’t want to live, we still want to live ok?!? So selfish! There are other time that you can burn your waste, why must you choose time like this to burn?
You might say that people are burning everyday even with haze or without haze. However, from my view, from what I’m seeing around me, that’s what I notice. Other time I seldom see smoke coming out of their backyards and only time like this you can see it almost everyday. Usually, you might just see one or two, then time like this, there are more than that.
I’ve been hearing fire engine’s siren a lots these day and one happened near my place. The fire got out of control and spread to the bushes nearby. Guess what they’re burning? TIRES! I did take a photo if it, just the smoke but I accidentally deleted it when I wanted to delete some other photos.
During time like this, it’s not a very good situation for me because I have sensitive nose. Sneezing is one thing, the haze is also causing my nose to bleed but not the type where blood flows out, Phew… It’s due to the membrane in there that got irritated and dried. Simply by rubbing my nose will cause the membrane to rupture. There will surely be dried blood in there, it’s so annoying. Sigh…
Anyway, what I really don’t understand is that, why burn now? You are not supposed to burn now! ARG! Inconsiderate brats!
