If it helps to know, I have allergic rhinitis and I seldom have any issues whenever I'm in Singapore.
You're extremely lucky - I eventually went to see a specialist about trying to manage my allergies - apparently the cement dust is particularly bad - but then again its taken 4 years of living here for my body to start reacting like this.
When there's haze, it helps that I have some cetrizine within easy reach. :) I also don't have any pets here now. It's a matter of choice - I have a crazy work schedule.
