Haze Madness: Time Indonesia Took Responsibility

It is time Indonesia took responsibility for the haze blanketing South East Asia.

They cannot conveniently blame foreign plantation companies resorting to slash and burn tactics for the cause of the haze..

What has Indonesia been doing all these years then?

Throw the full weight of the law at the culprits. And if the existing law is inadequate, legislate to include huge monetary penalty and jail term.

Unfortunately, in today's dog eat dog world, self interest and corruption override everything else.

No use going through the farce of Asean Joint Committee to tackle the problem.

They have been "tackling" the problem for the past twenty plus years already and come another twenty years, they will still be at it if there is no real political will to do what must be done even if that means that the cost of doing business goes up and less goes into vested and interested pockets

We are not talking about a once in a while occurrence.

This haze madness is an annual curse because of transborder greed and indifference.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
