I MUST say, like most Malaysians, I'm relieved we are enjoying a respite from the haze and smog that engulfed our skies over the past couple of weeks.
Haze is a common occurrence that all South-East Asian countries experience around the second to the third quarter of the year. In Indonesia, the technique of slash-and-burn for land clearing has been the leading cause of haze since 1991.
