Winds of Change - Haze in Penang

Wowee for KL residents as the hazey condition there is finally improving.

Unfortunately, the winds have blown the haze up to Penang, and it's really bad up here now. It's affecting me badly too; my eyes are red and watery, no thanks to the smog, parched throat and itchy nose. It doesn't really help to stay indoors in an air-conditioned area because one can still smell the smoke. Protective masks are selling like hot cakes at pharmacies. I have not gotten mine yet though.

Guess this entire weekend will be spent indoors.
