We spent so much time outdoors with the boys that the haze set us back quite a bit. We were at a loss on what to do.
So it was movies, home movies and more TV programs.
It was books, enrichment books and more practice work.
It was toys, Lego, cars and opening more new gadgets.
Cabin fever was getting to us.
The haze was such a dampener and so many activities had to be cancelled, like swimming, tennis and more.
The boys had been putting up a good fight but after 2 weeks’ of air pollution, X was showing symptoms of running nose. No amount of Manuka honey and Chinese herbs could ride us through if this persisted.
On one hand, it was sucky to have such poor quality of air and to worry about long term effects to our bodies. I recalled how a visiting counterpart asked if we ever saw blue sky in this part of the world. On the other hand, it heightened the awareness of caring for our environment. It also made us wonder how people who constantly had to live in such environments survive.
