Mostly all schools in KL, Selangor and Malacca are advised to shut down due to this hazardous air.
Luckily Lissa's daycare still opens though they close the school.

Tips in this haze, jerebu environment :

1. Stay INDOOR!

To stay indoors as much as you can. After all, the haze is out there – just don’t go outside lah!

2. Wear face mask

Especially if you have to go outside

3. Drink plenty of water

This is to ensure that the toxin from your body can be removed

4. Ensure good air quality in your car

Especially when you have to send ur kids to day care.
Just because the air-conditioning is on doesn't mean the air is better. Air-conditioners cool recycled – not fresh – air; it doesn't actually do anything to clean the air. These airborne contaminants – typically ash and micro-dust particles – will begin to build up. At the same time, the levels of other contaminants will also rise due to a lack of new air replacement. These contaminants include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), bacteria, viruses, and excessive levels of carbon dioxide, which can also increase over time when there’re people in a confined space. Once these airborne contaminants reach unhealthy levels – really, you may as well be walking outside in the haze with no N95 on. Some studies say that in some situations, the air inside can actually be five times as bad as the air outside.
So, get yourself a car sterilizer. This is crucial especially with babies and kids in your car.
I felt safe this morning while driving with kids inside and i havent smell any smoke; as compared to mr hubby's car without the car sterilizer
