How I Wish ...

The weather is horrible out there. While wifey was watching TV and I was doing my work on DNA testing last night, we could practically smell the acrid smoke in the air. The haze is really getting terrible and it looks like it's getting worse and worse each year. The smell of the smoke in the air was so bad that wifey's eyes were starting to sting and tear up that we had to close all our windows and doors.

I don't remember it ever being this bad. The worse part is we know where this bloody haze originates from and nothing is really being done about it. It's a yearly problem that plagues us and gets worse each year. We know where the source is, so what really is the big problem in solving this. All it needs is REAL effort.

Are my kids going to have to face this every year and for the rest of their lives? In fact, it's more like a monthly thing these days seeing a film of haze around the air. My kids walk to school and back and they're exposed to this crap on a daily basis, what with the H1N1 virus going around, it just makes things much worse.

Wifey is already getting face masks and making the boys wear them to school, especially when they're walking to and back from school. Going to the park in the evenings is out of the question, at least until the situation gets better which right now doesn't seem to look the least bit positive at all.

I remember back in my days these kind of things didn't happen. We could play outdoors all day and not worry about sucking up a lungful of hazardous smoke filled air or even worrying about deadly diseases. And when there was a film of white smokey feel enveloping the air, it would be cool refreshing mist and not haze. I don't think we'll ever see those kind of days again over here.

I pity the earth we leave behind for our children. They're probably going to be stuck indoors all day and probably have to use a mask if they wanna go out and play. The worse part is, this crap is caused by adults who have no qualms about ruining the earth ... siggghhh ... It's the only earth we have and if we don't take care of it, our children are going to be the ones who inherit a planet full of smog, pollution and deadly disease!

You know, in my fits of anger, I sometimes wish someone would just nuke the place where this crap originates from and be done with it. All that would be left is a piece of radioactive crater! No more haze problems. But then, when I calm down, I know it's an evil thought cos no matter how strongly I feel about this, wishing for something like that is way of out line. Bad Nick! But then, sometimes you can't blame me for my anger!

  1. I so agree with u, nobody is doing anything about the smokes. My fren said it'll end after a month like the last time it did. I hope he's right. I hate to be breathing in polluted air and the skies aren't as blue *sigh. I hate it when the sky look so smokey T_T

  5. People just talk and talk, not doing anything about the fires and smokes. NATO.

    My SIL just came back from KL yesterday and she commented that KL weather is much better than Kuching! Gosh! That means, Kuching is hazier than KL. We are going through dry spell here, and soon there probably not enough water to consume. Last night, my water pressure was very low, and we start to keep water in pails. Just in case....

  20. So you are using face masks to protect from the haze? Good also, can kill 2 birds with one stone. The face masks also protects from H1N1. No wonder the price of those masks are increasing : )
