With the Pollutant Standards Index numbers hitting new highs, Singaporeans are reeling from the after-effects of the haze.

One hawker interviewed by Razor TV says business has dropped 50 per cent because people are not coming out to eat.

Playgrounds are also empty these days as parents would rather keep their kids safe at home.

It's not all gloom and doom, however, as some have found ways to brighten up other people's days amid the haze. Joel Sng, chief executive of LifeOpp, has a team giving away face masks to help people protect themselves.
