Aiya... this haze ... sigh ....

I used to hate the haze but now I detest it!! It is so disruptive to my training program that I didn't ran outdoors since 5 Sept when I participated in a 10KM run. In fact, a lot of running events had been either cancelled or 'modified' to a shorter route or walkathon. I have signed up for the Standard Chartered Half Marathon due in early December and though it seems a long time, but its actually 2 months and a half to go or 10 weeks. I thought I did quite badly in the Sundown HM in July, though I am not a seasoned runner but I hope to improve on my next HM. I gotta resort to running in the treadmills for the past 2 weeks and the most I can run there was 5KM as there were folks waiting for the machine.

Well, hope for clearer skies in days to come and the good news is that both Malaysia and Singapore weather forecast predicted there will be a changed in the wind direction this week, as well as there will be rains here. Looking forward to it while I was wearing a N95 mask after work today as I cannot stand the burning smell when the haze hit psi 200+.

I thought it's a good idea to have something soupy for dinner and I simply ordered a fish maw with crab meat soup , and a small rice nearby my home. It's delicious, tasted like shark fins without the fins. :)



Drinks lots of water and let's pray the dreadful haze will end soon! Have a good week!

  8. lots of events and activities are affected by the haze, even schools have to be closed and I guess it's better to stay away from outdoor activities too.. so you gotta resort to training indoor then.. :)

  10. I have been sneezing and coughing here!
    Nobody likes this haze and it has become an annual affair. Bad karma awaits those who burn yearly!
    Time for you to hit the gym instead to run on treadmills. Happy running!

  13. Yeah, haze is so bad that schools are closing.

    I heard the F1 in Singapore is still going on though, despite reduced visibility. I love fish maw soup too, don't mind shark fin as well but actually fish maw tastes better, coz shark fin is only texture.

  17. The haze is terrible, I know. Lived through so many episodes of it. I had to pry my eyes open or fan it whenever it itched to prevent myself from rubbing it.
