I thought my eyes have blurring vision when I woke up this morning. I was wondering why the sky was still quite dark in the morning.
After I came back home, heard the radio deejay was talking about hazy conditions in Singapore has worsen a bit.
So I went to check the air quality PSI reading and found that 24hr PM2.5 concentration has gone up to 55. The PSI is 58 ( moderate level ). Correct as of 4pm, 6 Sept 2012
No wonder I can smell a bit of burnt substances in the air, almost thought people are burning papers for the festival so early in the morning.
