A lot seems to have happened since I last wrote. Half of August has gone by. We experienced the worst haze ever with API going beyond 500 points in some areas. The air was so bad, the smell of burning could not be shut out by closing all windows and doors. The movie, Soylent Green, keep coming to my mind. I was afraid! What if this type of air becomes the norm? We won't be able to go outdoors without being sick? Children won't be able to go outside to play? We won't be able to have picnics or go to the beach or just toss a ball outside? Already a game like football is played indoors (called futsal) and more and more indoor tennis courts are being built. How can one have a fun childhood without a space to just run around and scream as much as they want? Where they can play hide and seek all day? Fly a kite?

We've been thinking of buying a house with some land so our children can have a space to run about. Price of houses in the Klang Valley has become ridiculous! Plus we do not have a big budget to get a big spacious house. Also, we will never be assured that what is greenery around us will eventually be houses and condos. Our dream house is not going to fall on our lap. We have to get off our butt to look for it, won't we?
