Smog in Phuket

Today has been a whitewashed day. The whole island of Phuket has been covered by a smog. 

The air is stagnant, there is no wind and weather feels very hot. Air moisture must be at 100% level. Even light walking makes one sweat when the sun is shining. 

At the same time, there have always been reports of smog in Singapore and Malaysia. Smog caused by the forest fires in Sumatra. That's the penalty of using palm oil in cars.
