It was during the second week of this month that Singapore was first blanketed with a thick haze. The haze persists even now; it is blown across the sea from Indonesia where many fires rage almost uncontrollably whenever land is cleared by the slash-and-burn method.
I perform at both indoor and outdoor events. Naturally, I am concerned whenever the haze increases to unhealthy levels, prompting event organisers to consider postponement or cancellation of outdoor events.
So far, the outdoor events I have performed at this month have gone ahead as planned. I hope it stays this way because these hazy conditions are expected to linger for much longer in Singapore.
