The HAZE...

fun time..?
After one week of having to go through the Haze throughout the peninsula of Malaysia, finally it's over...
The worst location was Muar, in Johore, where the API (Air Pollution Index) hit 746, a record high.
Other areas that recorded high API readings include Bukit Rambai, Malacca ( 443 ), Malacca City (415), Port Klang in Selangor (487) and Seri Manjung in Perak (333).
Schools were closed for a day or two in those affected areas - mostly in Johore, Selangor and Perak.
Perlis and Kedah were spared this time, with the API readings not exceeding 64.
Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur.
It rained almost throughout the peninsula yesterday and today..., thank god!!
And things are almost back to normal today...
As at 8.00pm tonight, only two areas recorded API readings exceeding 100 - Nilai, Negeri Sembilan (152) and Bukit Rambai in Malacca (109).
For the record:

Have a nice day...
