Oh dear. People of the Klang Valley has been living in the 'magical' mist air which consists of dust and smoke particles for the past week. All thanks to the great wizard, Indonesia.
Smoke haze in Indonesia's Riau worsens
JAKARTA, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Smoke haze resulted from forest fire in Indonesia's Riau province is getting out of control, the private news portal detikcom reported on Wednesday.
Starting early morning till Wednesday noon, the capital city of Pekanbaru has been in a condition as if it was cloudy. It did not mean that the rain would start to fall. It was just because the sunlight had been blocked by thick smoke.
The Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMG) reported that 144 hotspots spread equally in all residences and cities. It was likely that the smoke spread to neighboring areas of Malaysia and Singapore.
Fire also occurred in Pekanbaru downtown with fire ravaging in several empty lands occupied by bushes.
However, the Forestry Minister MS Kaban who recently visited Pekanbaru said that the magnitude of the smoke haze had been exaggerated by national mass media.
A Riau-based non-governmental organization (NGO) expressed its regret upon the minister's statement.
"It is very obvious that fire in Riau is getting worse and out of control. We see fire everywhere," said the Director of Tropika,an NGO, Harijal Jalil.
Tropika's data showed that the forest fire was not only caused by people. Timber companies and palm plantations also contributed to the fire.
SMKB will be holding a marathon tomorrow. Poor SMKBians will not only have to endure the 5KM long and winding path, but also the magically blinding and choking mist air.
Hope: The air gets cleaner soon, since I need my exercise in the outdoor. (I don't have a gym membership)
Nasty Hope: Government declares holidays!

I got my best friend to do a tarot reading for me. I was intrigued by the result. It was amazingly accurate.
There is a series of things happening to me and my work, and other related things as well. I have got too engrossed with my work at a point it has influenced my life. But I have not done enough at my work. I could do much better than this. I could be a better person.
I must change my methods, my attitude and myself for the better me, and for a better workplace.
PS: A post a day might solve my need for a psychologist. LOL!

I have just done watching a movie about how a dad feels when his beloved daughter gets married. The distraught about wedding cost, the worries about wedding progress, the fears about losing his daughter, and the reluctance of letting his daughter go. At the end of the story, the dad did not get to dance with the daughter, nor kiss her… The father and daughter did not have any interaction after the church ceremony, even though they were looking for each other.
I still remember the father's satisfaction when he was looking at the 200-person dining hall, his daughter smiling at her greatest to her friends, his wife and his kids having fun, and he thought, “I could say that the wedding party is a success, and I would be happier if I get to dance with my daughter.”
As soon as his thought finishes, it was the time where the bride throws the wedding bouquet, and get ready to take off to Hawaii for honeymoon. The father thought, “I must get to see her.” Thus he took a shortcut to where she throws the bouquet. The shortcut was full of obstacle, and he missed the last chance to see her, dance with her, kiss her before she leaves the house for good. He missed it.
After the wedding party is over, he and his wife sat in a corner of the empty party-aftermath living room, resting and feeling blank. He puts on some soulful music, and at the same time the phone rang. His daughter called. She said, “Dad, I couldn’t leave without saying goodbye to you. Thanks mum for everything. And dad, I love you very much!”
This call was very significant to him. This call filled most of his emptiness in his heart for not being able to say goodbye to her before she left. He smiled at his wife after the call. He asked his wife for a dance at the soulful music. They danced intimately, in the beautiful, wedding-theme house.
Actually, I watched the movie alone at home. Everyone was sleeping already. I wanted someone to be there to watch the movie with me. I hunger for someone to love. Perhaps it was because of Valentine’s day is approaching, perhaps it was because of Khalil Fong’s love ballads which I fell in love with recently, perhaps I got sick of being single, and I am ready to fall in love again.
My loved one, where would you be?
I wish all couples will have a great Valentine’s day, and everyday would be a Valentine’s day for you!
