Kuala Lumpur in choking haze

New housing located near to the hill slopes at Taman Melawati, KL
clouded in thick haze.
This October I took a brief family holiday to KL.  An annual phenomena that caused schools to close for weeks and choked the city inhabitants happened again during our visit.  Kuala Lumpur sits in one big Klang Valley with surrounding hills that contain and circulate the industrial smog, traffic smoke  and tropical jungle clearing haze from neighbouring Indonesian island of Sumatra.
