Haze is back again.. :thumbsd:

Just to check with you guys, anyone ever been to EnergyOne gym at Yishun SAFRA? How's the shower facility like over there? I've been going to the one at Toa Payoh SAFRA specially to use their treadmill so as not to disrupt my running routine, and I'm super impressed with their shower facility. Rain shower with hot water, and also 2 x hair dryer for people to quickly dry their hair. :thumbsu:

If the one at Yishun SAFRA is also like this, then I'll sign up for their 1-month short term membership since I run 6 days a week and the haze doesn't look like it'll go down any time soon..

yap.. PSI 323@9am..

HAZE PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES by SSC on their ClubFITT Gym

"As the haze situation in Singapore develops, SSC will implement precautionary measures across its sports facilities to ensure the well being of its guests.

Based on the 24-hour and 3-hour Pollutants Standards Index (PSI) provided by the National Environment Agency, SSC will close its facilities accordingly.

SSC will close its facilities based on the following guidelines:

24-hour PSI level above 201: All outdoor & non air-conditioned indoor sports facilities will be closed
24-hour PSI level above 300: All SSC facilities will be closed

We will provide updates on this website at 12.30pm and 4.30pm daily to keep the public informed of our full-day facility closures."

Ok guys, SSC ClubFitt Gym Closure, PSI above 200 and definitely 300 = gym close, as it drops they will reopen... if they close and you are in the middle of your workout AND you have only been in the gym for less than an hour, they will issue you a reentry ticket. Otherwise..too bad...looks like.. even indoor sports facilities.. will be affected..

How are your pets coping in this weather and haze?.. notice my neighbour's puppy like not active anymore hide one corner...Usually my dog will want to eat or drink anything we drink. But now jus refuse anything. Sigh...My dog scratch eyes until area red red Liao...my rabbit showing signs of irritated eyes...

why.. sky so clear.. Indonesia Friday deployed helicopters to artificially create rain in a bid to fight raging fires that have choked Singapore with smog, which is hitting record-breaking levels that pose a threat to the elderly and the ill.

Looks like its just a temporary respite. So better take the opportunity to go for a run now.

Haze-2013-06-22-1800_zpsf7a6b095.jpg

[uPDATE 9pm] Just come back from an easy 90 mins run. It really feels good to go for a run and sweat a bit.Though there was still a burnt smell in the air, its nice to breadth in cleaner air instead of smog. I can see the park connectors and playground filled with like-minded individuals. They took the break in the haze to get out and do their usual physical routine. Life goes on.

Here's the latest regional haze map. The wind appeared to be changing direction and blowing some of the smog away in the northern direction towards Malaysia.

uncle is back.. wah.. shoik.. soon night comes.. check got red full moon tonight..on Sunday (June 23), the moon will be at its closest point to Earth — called perigee..this relatively close brush will happen as the moon enters its fullest phase, creating the cosmic coincidence known as the supermoon..at its fullest and closest, the moon will appear about 12 percent larger in the sky.. wow..don't know can see supermoon or not?

ok.. regional haze zone map..update..for 22 June

618l.jpg

looks like..local has been spared..but not our the other friendly neighbour up north..

and the eyes from the sky..shows why..haze debating in the last hours of today..towards night..

sxau.jpg

yap.. the worst of haze is over.. and the acid test of which run event was affected.. everyone knows..2013 Mizuno PAssion Mount Faber run postponed due to haze.. of course, uncle thinks.. on actual day, IT WILL BE A GOOD FINE DAY without HAZE and they go and postpone it...yes, based on 2-day old..which PSI was 371..well, respect the Authority Haze Guideline..it is good for everybody..to be safe and healthy.. for there is always another better day for race..

ok.. no more race for june for uncle the weather voodoo to watch out, and so this is uncle's last post..bye bye..this should be remembered as "We Survived 2013 Haze @ PSI..321..371..401..with No Outdoor Run".

Here is an app which allows you to check PSI on the go.

Haze@SG

Just need to note that its a 3hr average reading, not real time. Your eyes and nose are still a better judge.

The haze over the next 24 hours expected to be moderate.

Regional Haze Map. Looks like the wind is continuing to blow towards the north. No wonder my friends holidaying in KL commented that the haze has arrived there.
