Man oh man, I could not see Bukit Timah hill yesterday morning when I peeked out at 7am to see what the early morning fuss building up on Facebook was all about.
PSI values over at the NEA site had climbed and I was fretting about whether there was going to a repeat of 2015. But the source is local, and NOT transboundary haze – NEA would say “there were no significant hotspots or smoke haze detected in the nearby region”. Yes, all made in Singapore, and accumulating when there is little wind to disperse particles.
And guess what? It’s the early/morning Sumatras storms of Apr-May which will wash it down from the sky! Thanks Sumatra, for being the island that you are, and for Indonesia significantly arresting the massive fires typical of the past years.
Time to take a good look at ourselves!
