避開霧害Don’t Be A Victim Of Haze
取自文章 «霧鎖南洋» 2014年9月19日：
As of this evening 6pm, the PSI has hit the unhealthy level of 150. It scaled a peak of 222 at 1am this morning. I had predicted at the start of this year that the “Fog of Nanyang” a.k.a the haze will struck again, and the situation would only improve after the 9th Lunar Month.
Do not let the Haze spoils your good luck!
When adversity strikes, we must do our utmost best to stay in the peak of good luck and treat ourselves well so as to not fall sick. Those who are always ill, easily sick, unable to recover from an illness or on long-term medication suffer financial losses constantly and are deemed out of luck.
Each family should prepare a bottle of vinegar and an air purifier in the house. Every day, between 11am to 1pm and 7pm to 9pm, you can opt to eat the following foods: a golden pear, watermelon juice, barley porridge with beancurd skin and ginkgo nuts, green bean soup or almond paste. Please remember to use only rock sugar in the desserts.
Please look at my past article to remind yourselves on the kind of food to consume to cleanse the pollutants from your respiratory system (lungs, throat, nose).
Extracted from past article “A Foggy Singapore”, published on 19 Sept 2014 :
Luo Han Guo (or the siraitia grosvenorii), watermelon, almond and coconut are the few foods we can consume to safeguard against the harm caused to our bodies by the polluted air. Of course, having an air purifier at home is definitely necessary. As I write my last sentence for this post, here’s a reminder for everyone to wear a white-coloured face mask, or at least have the white-coloured part facing externally. Don’t forget!
Headlines of Lianhe Zaobao 14/9/2015:
The haze condition is expected to worsen today, as the South or Southwestern winds send the haze from Sumatra into Singapore. The 24-hour Pollutant Standard Index is expected to reach the mid to higher range of the unhealthy level. If the wind direction persists, there is a possibility that the 24-hour PSI will climb into the extremely unhealthy levels.
