Mother Nature is acting out in our part of the world too in a different way. No hurricanes or blizzards or floods or droughts.
All things happen for a reason - anywhere.
The environment has taken a turn for the worst at the moment. The mosquitoes are causing problems with a new strain of Dengue. Many factors are probably the cause besides breeding sites which we are constantly reminded to prevent, the extreme weather could be the other reason that's helping the mozzies along. No, there is still no cure against the virus of the Aedes mosquito. Nature will continue to find ways to survive.
The PSI (air quality)is bad, every year we go through this problem for a while, where the neighbouring countries (farmers) burn the land to such an extent it affects the air (smells of smoke)all the way across the seas not just here over in Singapore but the whole of the west coast of Malaysia too. We aren't pulling on oxygen masks just yet. Hope the winds change.
One would think I was not talking about urban Singapore but some backwater 'ulu' country, but this is happening here and now.
How much is within our control, not much I think. We'll just have to weather it.
