Random post as always..........
Gonna blog bout my "suay-ness"(unluckiness) today and the hot topic in Singapore..#sgHaze.
Sooo about the haze first..it's started for about a week or so already due to the forest fire in Indonesia. And what caused the forest fire? hmmm..different sources give different news. So whose story do you buy? As for me, i'd reserve that answer to myself. Heh! And below are some resources i've gotten from the "Straits Times" app.
As for the above article, it's pretty scary to see the PSI hit 321 in Singapore!! Cause our daily average is like what? Below 50? And now it suddenly increases 6times in a short span of a few days. It's probably a normal thing in other countries (i'm not sure?), but in Singapore, it's definitely something to worry about. And yes, this forest fire thing happens annually. So why do i only show concern now? Cause the PSI readings show a "very unhealthy" level. And it's the highest that has ever been recorded in history. Sometimes i just don't understand how those companies can be so unethical when they have so many codes of business ethics. And of course i know..it all boils down to money! But then again..without health..how do u have enough life span to spend that huge amount of money? tsktskk.
In addition, this haze thing is really quite scary. It's definitely peanuts compared to other natural disasters in the world, like Tornados, Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Epidemics etc.. But it's still something that concerns us. It's like we're breathing in this unhealthy polluted air daily! Long term inhalation is definitely hazardous! Especially to people like meeeeee...with asthma. Sighhh~ I'm super reluctant to leave home nowadays due to the haze man. Cause i have to wear the mask whenever i'm out. And it's really quite irritating. And i have to make sure i have my ventolin with me all the time just in case my asthma acts up again! And my eye is not helping at all. The sty in my eye is back again! Grrr!!! And now i can't put any eye makeup to prevent it from being infected further. Boooo!!!
And then...business opportunities for other sector! Face masks..air purifiers!! So convenient. Businesses are really interrelated. Complements and substitutes of each other. And i was out trying to buy some face masks today. All the Guardian Pharmacies i'd gone to had al their surgical masks all sold out. :// Totally selling like hotcakes..just like the SARS period.
Okay..and about my "suay-ness" today. Just look at the article above. Train fault again! If you're a Singaporean..u'd have known that there's no such thing as train faults ever since there's a train system in Singapore. Only until recent years, there's sucha thing!! For the first few times, it's really forgiveable but train faults have been happening very frequently nowadays! Yes, free train rides given as a form of compensation. But, it totally shouts as the "most unreliable" transport system! You encourage public to take the public transport, then please make your public transport an efficient one, dear government!
Despite the many train faults that have occurred, i've never experienced one before until today! :/ Was on the NEL towards Punggol from Outram Park, and then one stop later, the train stopped at Chinatown. And it stopped there for like what? 30min? I was patiently waiting and there were announcements telling us there's a fault at hougang station which had caused the delay. But they didn't tell us how long we've got to wait!!! I got so impatient aft bout 30min and decided to switch to a bus instead. So i stepped out of the train and approached the escalator. And then.....the train doors closed!!! I was already at the escalator when i saw the train operate again!! ARGHHH!!!! Totally madness there ok!!!!!! i could have waited for another 30seconds and the train would have operated again! but i didnt!!! Butbutbut..i was also quite lucky to not have stucked in between stations, which means at the tunnel area, that's stated in the article. It would be so scary to walk in the tunnels uh! And the haze totally made the whole train fault thing worse!!!
Soooo..........i'd not step out of my house for the next few days!!!!! Not to places that more than 1km from my house!!! So irritated by the haze ok! And i really feel unwell when i'm out. Like headache and shortness of breath. Badbadbad~~~
timecheck now 3:51am. Sun's rising soon~~~
