We Malaysians may enjoy similar cultural values and yummy dishes with our neighbour Indonesia.
But if there’s one thing we really wish they would keep in their country and not share it with the entire nusantara region is the haze.
It seems like the dreaded haze season is back once again to haunt us Malaysians.
reported that according to the Malaysian Meteorology Department (MET Malaysia), the haze is expected to ‘attack’ several states in Malaysia due to the forest fires happening in several areas in Sumatera, Indonesia.
The affected areas so far are the Klang Valley, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Penang, Negeri Sembilan
, and several areas in Sarawak
MET Malaysia deputy head of operations Muhammad Helmi Abdullah told the news portal that the haze is expected to last for a week starting today.
“As long as the forest fire hasn’t been put out, we’ll be experiencing haze due to the wind movement,” Muhammad Helmi said.
He advised Malaysians to cut down on outdoor activities and refrain from doing any open burning.
Stay safe Malaysians, perhaps its also time to get your haze masks on standby should the haze deteriorate.
