In the spirit of Idul Fitri, we'd like to wish a happy lebaran day and we'd like to apologize body and soul (direct translation of Indonesian congratulatory phrase).
Idul Fitri, in Indonesia, is the day where everybody offer apology to each other for the sins and mistakes that has been done over the past year. Idul Fitri day is believed to be an atonement day, a rebirth. If a person is a computer, he is reformatted, and is given a chance to start with a blank hard disk space for the upcoming year.
And in Singapore, it's great that there is no haze during Idul Fitri day. On the night before the day, PSI count ranged between 50-60, which is quite good. Even though Idul Fitri day was cloudy, it was full of fresh air.
But of course there is no haze, because the forest burner (those illegal loggers companies and oil palm plantations) are having a holiday too. I think that the haze will return one week after Idul Fitri, once everybody gets back to business.
