Running With Cheese There is a little story about two mice (named Sniff and Scurry) and two little people (named Hem and Haw) who lived in a land called KayEl Valley. They all had signed up for a Rat Race 2005, a race that offered a staggering amount of cheese as the prize at the finish line. However, on the day of the race, the haze came and engulfed the whole KayEll Valley, making the road to the finish line invisible. No one could see where he or she was going in the haze. Despite the hazy condition, Sniff and Scurry proactively sniff their way to the finish line and get their cheese medals. However, the little people were not so resourceful. Instead of sniffing and scurrying towards the finish line, the two little people, Hem and Haw just sat on their big fat @sses and blamed their neighbours for open burning, blamed the sky for no rain and blame the southwest monsoon for causing the haze. Hem didn’t think of proactively seeking detection methods or educate the planters about the hazards of open burning. Haw didn’t bother about enforcing the environmental laws. Both just sat there hopelessly to wait for the haze to clear miraculously. Hem and Haw experienced the haze problem a few years back and apparently never learn from it. Sounds familiar? Anyway, hope you enjoy reading this little story I "adapted" from Spencer Johnson M.D. bestseller Who Moved My Cheese?”. For your information, the actual RAT RACE 2005 that supposed to be on today has been postponed indefinitely due to the HAZE. I hope they won't postpone the Malay Mail Big Walk this weekend. I have wiggled and trained for it and I will not let a little haze to go between my race and me. Hey, what's a little haze compared to the normal smog we inhaled from the exhaust pipes of cars everywhere? (Insert choking and coughing sound effect here!)
