Where There is Smoke...(Ranting Post)

 The haze is back and last week some schools in East Malaysia were asked to close due to haze. Again blame it on the neighbouring country. But how about West Malaysia?

Each evening after school, sure can see smoke coming out from various spots along the road during our journey home. And as everyone know...where there is smoke, the is......




 For example this spot.


 Each time pass by, can see this. There were few times saw Bomba putting out the fire. Ain't this a waste of Bomba time ? Waste of tax payer monies. 


                           


Seems like this piece of land have been turned into rubbish dump by certain people. 

Not sure if the "wall/fence" was put up by the land owner to deter people out from dumping rubbish there . If it is , then it is not working loh. People still are dumping rubbish there. Or on a more sinister scenarios whereby the "wall/fence" are put up by certain people to "hide" the burning activities. 

We live in a magical country. Day time when we pass by oil palm and coconut plantation, usually we don't see any fire. Maybe the sun is too bright ..silau...  But in the evening/night or dawn...the "mist/fog" that carries the aromatic scent smokes would appear. Some say it's from neighbouring country. Some say it's due to "spontaneous combustion" as the land is too hot nighttime. The fire are not started purposely by people. They say, he say, she say,....aiya...i say maybe started by fireflies flying around kot? 

Maybe should look at the bright side.... smoke chase away mozzie. Can prevent dengue case from rising? Whatever......

  1. I hate smoke from burning rubbish too. The people stay near my gym like to burn rubbish. When I ran on treadmill, I was so suffered by inhaling this type of toxic smoke. I really feel like filing a complaint to them.

  3. Only Sabah close schools early this week. No haze reported in Sarawak but weather has been crazy lately. Sekejap panas like in sauna and next minute, it rains cats and dogs.

    Those are irresponsible people. Burn and burn. When the haze really blow over from our neighbour, they make so much noise.

  4. Some culprits are very smart. They only start their burning in the late night where they can't be detected by the authorities. We can't see where the smoke is coming from, we can only smell it. You want to report also don't know how to report.

  5. We have wild fires here in Canada every year ... sometimes lit by a careless person throwing out a cigarette stump out of their moving car ... but most times, nobody knows why ... and acres and acres of forest go up in flames ... wild life has to die or flee and after that new plant grows everywhere like crazy ... that's called "circle of life", lil kitten ... smiles ... Love, cat.

  7. Sometimes it is really due to spontaneous combustion as the weather is too hot and the items are too dry.

    1. Spontaneous combustion nearly daily? Hmmm..

  8. Indeed! And whenever there is a haze, they blame Indonesia...when there is rampant burning locally. And word had it that the culprits in Indonesia were Malaysian and Singaporean companies. Some of the Singapore ones were charged last year by their country - ours, no sound.

  10. so sad nya~ the civil awareness in Malaysia is still so bad. Despite most children are going to school with proper education, eventually, it comes down to the parents to teach them how to behave and act.

  20. You had me LOL-ing at fireflies.. ;P
    Some people just don't care for the environment much, nor do they care for others. It's saddening!

  21. This is really a HOT topic nowadays with the hot weather and added smoky haze. The Indons burn forests annually but no one could stop them! Now their foreign workers also brought their habits to bakar sampah in Selangor. I always see them around Sg Buloh. I could spot an Indon from a mile away! The way they walk and wrap the sarong is very different one. So they bakar sampah also Indon style la.

  22. only when something big and really dangerous happens, then people will wake up to be more considerate and thoughtful to Earth and others. Before that, just have to bear with it I guess..

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's also very hot now, burning like this can be dangerous. In Australia, during the hot summer months, there's a ban on open burning and you'll get HUGE fine even if you throw a cigarette butt on the ground. It's a big no-no and heavily enforced, but then again Malaysia has weak enforcement even if we do have the laws.
