Singapore is literally choking! The haze from forest fires in Indonesia’s Sumatra island have completely covered the city and the government is pissed! So much so that Indonesia accused them of ‘acting like a child’.
Tourism has been seriously affected and all my favourite outdoor restaurants are deserted.
I’ve been forced to start wearing these horrible masks which I always thought looked ridiculous. But now its necessary. I’m sure people are looking at me weird – a black chick taking it all super seriously while some Singaporeans walk around mask-free but I don’t care.
It smells horrible and even my apartment is full of smoke.
Praying for the wind to change. The smog index has just hit 400, which is the critical level and dangerous for the elderly and small children.
I’m sure all will be well. In the meantime, I have a renewed empathy for those poor souls in Hong Kong!
