HAZY DAYS, GLOOMY DAYS!

Today, we get to see the nearby hills after 2 days of rain but the haze is still over us and have not fully clear yet. We do missed the bright sunny days with clear blue sky.

Its been weeks of hazy days and everything around us seems so gloomy. Many people are down with influenza, cough and itchy throats. The elderly, sickly and babies are encouraged to stay indoors. There were times we could smell a burning scent in the air.
About 2 weeks ago, we were on our way to town to get some breakfast and after that, to run some errands.
These hazy days made me tired and sleepy, even though it was morning!
Having done our errands, we were on our way home when we saw this car decorated with flags in front of us. I told hubby to drive closer.....
 Oh, slow down, please slow down...I am trying to focus my camera on this car!
This car with the flags is very eye-catching!
In spite of the hazy days and gloominess, we Malaysians celebrated Malaysia Day on the 16 September!
We were comfortably in the car and my heart went out to these motorists who were breathing in the haze particles.
While waiting for the traffic light to change green, I snapped this fences running parallel to each other.
Stop for the traffic light is red!

    1. Thank you, Eileen. The haze is caused by open burning in our neighbouring country. We faced the same problem every year but this year is worse than previous years.

  9. I live in California and we have forest fires every summer and often our haze is smoke from fires. This year was no different. It's pretty good now, but much of the summer we had haze.

    Happy belated Malaysia Day.

    Have a fabulous day Nancy. ☺

  16. After reading some of the comments I understand now where the "haze" was coming from. I can relate as we had wild fires in our state much of the summer and the air quality wasn't so great. - You got some nice photos and that patriotic car was cool. I enjoyed seeing your fences as well.
