Hazy road, take me home.
Sarikei Haze Attack 2009

Holy smoke (yet again)! In 2006, Sarikei had the dubious honour of having the highest air pollution index (API=183) in Malaysia. Yesterday morning, Sarikei woke up to a surreal mix of mist and haze. Sarikei was not alone. Haze was reported as far as Sibu and Miri by other bloggers. The season of slash and burn method of agricultural land clearing is back and if the wind is in Sarikei's direction, denizens will continue to breathe in a dangerous cocktail of pollutants.
