Really the last straw for me


Every darn morn­ing I wake up, I’ll be greeted by some smoky smell. And gee, look out the win­dows from here, everything’s so-darn-murky. Vis­i­bil­ity is like some­where around 1KM in esti­mates. Seri­ously, I — not only me — we, have been inhal­ing Carbon-filled air in through our res­pi­ra­tory sys­tem with every sin­gle breath TWENTY-FOUR HOURS a day and SEVEN days a WEEK! Imag­ine hav­ing to breathe in smoke for the whole day! You get so used to it you don’t even remem­ber how fresh air smells like. Did you even know that expo­sure to pol­luted air with an API read­ing of 200 is equiv­a­lent to smok­ing 20 cig­a­rettes a day? Hell, what is this? A nico­tine party?

A check at the DOE web­site says Kuching’s API read­ing for the day is now 124, with Sibu, Sri Aman and Sarikei top­ping the list with API read­ings nearly hit­ting 200. Vis­i­bil­ity is recorded at only 800m for the city.

Every time you stare out into the murky hori­zon, anger fills up as you silently curse those ****** cul­prits for caus­ing all this haze. Our cloth­ing smells like bar­be­cue minus the aroma. I’m hav­ing a mild sore throat with all those pol­luted air run­ning through the tra­chea every sec­ond, and my eyes, dammit, are get­ting sore which makes me feel sleepy. Hey! I got an impor­tant Malay mock exam to sit this after­noon, and hell don’t I want to be going through that while chok­ing on pol­luted air.

ARGH! All this haze crap is really get­ting on my nerves now. Seri­ously, what the hell is every­one doing? Are we all frig­gin blind? One could die if he or she stands out there if not from the heat, it would be from inhal­ing exces­sive heavy metal pol­luted air. STOP BURNING ALREADY, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!! BASTARDS!
