No Haze yet in Malaysia

Yay! We have blue skies today after a week of overcast weather. You've guessed it. The haze is back or rather we are seeing the beginning of the haze season.

Indeed, the haze is back. Though not spotted in Malaysia a few days ago, hotspots were spotted in Sumatra and Kalimantan on the island of Borneo.

And the game must go on... Indonesian youths play football in a local tournament as the haze shrouds Pulau Mentaro village in Muaro Jambi. Photo: Reuters

Hotspots in Indonesia's Western Kalimantan province are on the rise with a haze blanketing the region, even as authorities assess the situation as harmless

Over here, we are very careful not to exacerbate the situation. The authorities have nabbed a number of people committing open burning.

The air quality is still good in the country. To give you an idea, here's the API reading for today.
