YABEDABEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! NO MORE FOGGING HAZE FROM FOGGING INDONESIA!!
However…it rained so hard till…
this Van overturned due to the rain..wtf.
Last Thrusday an extremly fogging hazy day, i took the LRT down to KL for a meeting. On the way back, i stopped by Kelana Jaya Station to top up my Touch n’ Go Card. There were this couple standing in front of me, a melay lady and her caucasian boyfriend. I was not very sure what was wrong with their card but it took ages for the clerk to top up their card. While, we were waiting for their card to be topped up…
Lady: Honey, can you see where is my mouth. (The lady was wearing mask)
Mat Salleh: ooooh…let me see.
Then they kissed each other.
Mat Salleh: No, i can’t find it
Then, the man french kissed the lady whom were wearing a mask. God Damn it, get a room lar!!! I was standing less than 30cm behind them. Suddenly…
Man: oooi, apa you orang buat! (oooi, what are both of you doing!)
All of us turned behind and saw a masked melay Guard.
Man: Tak boleh cium cium di sini! Kami orang Islam! (No kissing here! We are muslim)
Mat Salleh: ini his-teri saye. Kame aken ber-car-win tak lame legi (This is my wife. We are gonna get marry soon)
The Mat Salleh could speak Melay with American Accent!!! Fogging Hell!!!
Man: Tak boleh. Sini orang ramai! (Cannot! This is a public place)
Mat Salleh: Bah-lik roh-mah bole-hhh buat keh? (Can we do it at home?)
Man: Belum kahwin, tak boleh! (Not married yet, cannot!)
Then,they went on arguing with each other for a good 3-4 mins…Amazingly, their Touch n’ Go Card took that fogging long to be reloaded as well.
Finally, my turn…
Me: Cek, tambeh nilei lime puluh ring-git (Miss, top up RM50 plz)
The Clerk stared at me….
ooooh My God!!! I am speaking American accented Melay as well…FOGGING HELL

The API in PJ & KL where xes and me stay and work in,hit 349 and 321 respectively as reported by The Star Online.
The lighting of my office’s reception area make it looks like we are living in a bioharzard zone.
LDP from the Kelana Jaya LRT station’s bridge
The view from 7th Floor, Pertama Complex. We can see KLCC from here but not today. Maybe, i should say “On a good, clear day, we can see KLCC from here.”
Blurry view from the LRT…no, there is nothing wrong with the window or my camera phone.
Just hope that the giant minty, cool, and refreshing Halls Fan can repell the Haze
GOD help us!
Finally the Government had decided to release the Air Polluction Index (API). IT’S ABOUT TIME LAR, DAMN IT!!! STOP BICKERING EACH OTHER ABOUT AP, AND START TELLING THE PEOPLE ABOUT THE API
choose which one more important, you damn GOVERNMENT!!!

The haze had been getting worst day by day, masks have been selling like hot cakes!
This photo was taken at about 12pm. The visibility level was acceptable but the air was totally unbreathable. I felt dizzy and drowsy just standing outside there for one min.
My boss decided to buy us lunch since all his meeting was cancel due to the haze. But, none of us feel like going out so we order Pizza Hut instead. The bloody pizza took one hour to come, contrary to their promise of 30 mins delivery. So, my master, the self proclaim Pizza Hut Most Valuable Customer, called the Pizza Hut,
“Hello Pizza Hut, your people mana (where), pengsan (faint) on the road kah?”
“No sir, we are busy that is why we will be late.”
“Busy ar? That mean you don’t need our business lar. So we cancel lar.”
“No sir, our man is on the way”
“but he is 30 mins late. If he pengsan on the road, you tell me lar. I understand one. I go tarpau (order take away) something else lar.”
“eeer…that one i don’t know. I will get the branch in charge to call you back.”
The moment my master put down the phone, the Pizza Hut man show up at the doorstep, looking as if he was gonna faint.
Haze not only make people feel drowsy, some became dumber because of it. The newspaper man came to collect his fee at our office,my clerk asked him how much is the charge.
“eeeer…i lupa lar (i forgot)
and he is the boss!!! How can you forgot!!!
This photo at 5pm. ooooh no, the visibiltiy so bad..i can’t see my car from the reception area.
On the way back, the street lights were turn on early at LDP. The jam started early also or was it because people were driving very slowly. So slow that i even had time to take photo…or was i driving too slow…hmmmmm…?
Haze can actually make a person…slow too.

The API system as adopted in Malaysia categorises air quality as hazardous to health when the index exceeds 300, according to the Department of Environment website.
All of a sudden, Kuala Lumpur was covered with thick haze this evening. Visibility was barely 10KM. I guess there’s another forest fire in Sumatra?
