11 Reactions Singaporeans have to the Haze

Yes, it’s that time again. The Haze…

For the benefit of those who aren’t too sure – basically every now & then for the longest time, Singapore undergoes a period of haze (basically air pollution) for a period of time because our dear neighbour, Indonesia, decided to go on a forest burning spree.

And this isn’t a world whereby we could just get really fed up with an inconsiderate neighbour, look for another place with nice people who will bake you apple pies, pack up & leave.

Sadly, these are geographical neighbours… Nothing can be done about moving. :/

So here’s how some of us Singaporeans have been reacting towards the situation.

#1 When the air started to get a little bit suspicious-looking… 

As Singaporeans, we are no stranger to the haze. And after the especially bad episode in 2013, we’ve gotten quite wary of this whole haze jazz.
