Is it just me or is there a strong smell of the haze in the air now?

Not just haze. Volcano eruption at Mt Kelud on Java Island has contributed also..

Masks buying time for those that need it. I hope we do not see the same situation (shortages/profit taking/etc) like last year.

Believe you might instead be referring to Mount Sinabung (Indonesian CVGHM Alert Status IV) at North Sumatra, Indonesia which last erupted on the 18th of February 2014 killing dozens. Mount Kelud (Indonesian CVGHM Alert Status IV) last erupted on the 13th of February 2014 is 1402 km away at East Java, Indonesia and unlikely to affect Singapore with any significant impact at all.

Either way ash clouds from both volcanoes are being blown away from us by high altitude winds, so not to worry.

Will the proposed trans-boundary haze law actually work to discourage companies from burning in Indonesia?
