The haze is not an attack but natural force bring the haze here to Malaysia but the root cause is from Human. They burn Riau again. I’am thinking if the Island keep on burning every year, will there be any green plant left?

Read this:

As of 5pm yesterday, the Department of Environment’s Air Pollutant Index recorded four areas with unhealthy air quality – Bukit Rambai in Malacca (119), Banting in Selangor (110), Muar in Johor (103) and Cheras in Kuala Lumpur (110).

For your information, the usual mask that we commonly wear can’t really filter higher level fine dust / oil or water-based mists including hazardous pharmaceutical powders, biological agents and fibers. However mask like this do:

-99% efficient filter oily and non-oily particles, anti-virus, bacteria, are commonly known as N99 grade. Hope the air quality will be better and we shouldn’t need to invest in mask like this.
