Damn Haze!

Damn haze. The whole house is coughing and I have sore throat with slightly runny nose and sneezing (allergic reaction). Noe became fussy and lethargic. The blockage in my nasal area caused disturbing headache. ARRGH!! And we don’t have air conditioning system at home, so we had to keep the window open or else we would be steamed inside the house. And all Indonesia does is apologize without doing anything.

Update: AC does not make any difference in avoiding the smoke (unless the room is equipped with air cleaner). From NEA Website:

During a smoke haze, the fine particulates enter an air-conditioned building through the fresh air intake and by infiltration through openings and gaps. The particulate levels indoor can thus build up to unacceptable levels. This could have undesirable health effect on the occupants of the building and adversely affect the efficiency of the air-conditioning system.
