    Rather than that thing, better to buy some respirator and a huge oxygen tank for anyone at home to use.. reckon thats cheaper solution. Useful for asthmatics too.
    BTW..who supply these things around here ah...maybe need to look into one for poor wifey..she's an asthmatic case and I've to rush her to clinic when it gets really bad.

    No, she won't if you blame it squarely on the smog. Just make sure there are no lipstick on your collar when you're back!

    Following is the satellite picture from NEA Singapore as at 4:05pm this afternoon.

    Great, Peninsula is free from haze with winds direction change.

    Areas affected by haze are mainly at Sumatra and part of Singapore.

    PM 2.5 still high.

    Hahaha .... soon you guys will learn that predicting the weather is just slightly easier than number on the roulette wheel !! JPN made a fool of themselves yesterday - closing all the schools when the weather is even better than today

    Take note but don't bet the house on it !

    I think someone who is BUSINESS-MINDED should consider MAKING CERTIFIED FACE-MASKS FOR CHILDREN - sure big market in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia and CHina - the super-kiasi parents WILL COUGH OUT TOP $$$$ for them, no sweat !!!

    The idea is easy and I believe the factory manufacturing part is easy as well….

    The only problem is to get certification from health authorities like the DCA (USA) and EMCDDA (EU)…
    (without certification, I doubt those self-proclaimed highly educated parents in USJ/SJ will buy)

    The certification process will take loooong time and lots of money.. likely drain out all the furure profit if the projected demand is not big enough..

    Entrepreneur with such amount of money will invest in other areas..

    And unlikely big drug companies will spend resources and focus on a product which is only for regional consumption...

    just my 2 cents from living with someone in this industry ...

    Even if the haze is no more it is still a good idea to wear a mask especially for those who go outdoors a lot due to work. You can see those overloaded diesel trucks/buses spewing out thick black smoke. While the exhaust gas from diesel vehicles is pretty clean, the the particulates are deadly.

    Only modern diesel vehicles complying with Euro standards have a diesel particulate filter installed in the exhaust system to trap the particulates.

    My friend who owns a turbo diesel told me about this. I also read about it on auto forums. Then I just Google to find out more.

    You can Google diesel particulate filter. Also wikipedia. There are a lot of useful information.

    Thanks Henry..

    I have very little knowledge on vehicle, auxiliary equipment fitted on vehicle and emission Standards of vehicle. I am thinking that you may have hands-on knowledge on particulate filter as you mentioned before you are a moderator of a vehicle forum.

    I normally don’t go to Wikipedia to search for technical answer simply because -

    1. For someone who is not technically competent in one particular subject (someone like me on the subject of emission and particulate), whatever answer in the Wikipedia is just a guess because I wouldn't know for sure whether the answer is correct or wrong).

    2. For the topic which I am technically comfortable to digest, Wikipedia is not the right place as it would be like reading what I have already know.


    Just to share, Malaysia is one of the countries which control air quality from fuel specifications, not from vehicle emission. Currently, we are still using Euro2M fuel Standard.. need to wait for a few more years to Euro4M.
