The haze making World news!

Friday, August 12, 2005

What a way to make headlines! Malaysia finally got the publicity and made news on almost all major news agencies across the globe.

A search on google:news for haze brings back approx. 2,550 hits! From Boston Globe to Guardian Unlimited to Xinhua to Herald Sun, photos of the barely visible iconic skyline of Kuala Lumpur made news on the world section of the respective papers.

Correct me if I am wrong but I would say Malaysia hasn't got that much publicity and attention since the Anwar case back in the 90s.

Although I am not in Kuala Lumpur, just by looking at the pictures and video shots make me hard to breath. Thank God that the Air Pollution Index has stabalize at a much safer lavel than yesterday.

I dunno what impact will this do to the tourism industry. Nonetheless, we can boast that we have 3 seasons every year (thanks to our 'kind' neighbour): Rain, Hot and Haze.

At least we get to feel sunlight today. 2 days ago there were no sun at all.
