Singaporeans get creative during the haze which has hit this year's highest PSI reading
The haze has reached a new level today (Sept 10), the highest recorded so far this year.
The three-hour Pollutants Standard Index (PSI) hit 137 at noon.
At 6pm, the three-hour PSI reached 160.
The Straits Times reported that yesterday (Sept 9), the PSI readings were lower, staying within the 50 to 100 range, which is considered moderate with regards to the intensity of the haze.
The National Environment Agency (NEA) said on its website that the country's air quality may deteriorate further if the winds are unfavourable.
So how are Singaporeans coping with the haze?
Apart from making sure that they stay hydrated, keep out of the open when the can, buy air purifiers and wear masks, some of them are trying to make it through this smoky time with humour.
Bring on the haze wisecracks.
