Postby Kahlou » Wed, 24 Nov 2010 5:24 pm

Fellow Expats@sg, kindly take the time to answer and distribute this survey on how the recent haze event has affected you (health-wise). We will greatly appreciate your help on this.

Dear Singapore Resident,

The years 2010, 2006, and 1997 are years marked with severe haze episodes from forest burning in Indonesia. In October 2010, Singapore experienced severe haze episode from 14 to 29 October, 2010 of which the highest pollutant standard index is 108.

We are doing this quick survey to document how Singaporeans were affected by the recent haze event. The information you will provide will help us inform relevant agencies in Singapore to assess the health impacts of haze to local residents.

Please note that any information you will provide will be treated with utmost confidentiality and will only be used for research purposes. No personal information or reference will be publicly used as part of this survey

Yours sincerely,

Rusyan Jill Mamiit
Research Officer

I find it doesn't make that much difference than smelling the choking unburned hydrocarbons that are spewed daily by the tens of thousands of cars, most of which only contain a single occupant, here in Singapore. Maybe your survey should be on how to clean your own back porch before complaining about your neighbours. :-|

The impact for me was that the sky was hazy up in Tioman, so the water doesn't look so blue in my pix.

Slightly more seriously though, I do find it ironic that a swathe of SE Asia is forced to breathe poison, so Europeans can fill up their cars with bio-fuels and feel they're doing their bit to save the planet.

The impact for me was that I hear these people complaining about the haze.
Come on, people! Try living in third-world country city--I did it most of my life!
