We are seeing hazy skies again in Kuala Lumpur. The rain this afternoon did not help much. Through the shroud of haze, this is how the Petronas Twin Towers looked like (picture borrowed from The Star).
It is that time of the year again in which temperatures are high, matched by high humidity. Malaysians can expect hotter and drier days till September as an El Nino phenomenon is forming.
Open burning adds to the problem with 125 hot spots spotted in the country since May 25 to June 7 though some are not man-made but due to peat fires and landfill fires. To worsen the situation, there are 996 hot spots in Sumatra and 108 in Kalimantan and if it gets worse, air quality in this region may be affected. I am thinking rain right now, lots of it.
