Singaporeans who appreciate clean air for 11 months a year can still show their love for Indonesia and their vice-president Jusuf Kalla.
A website with a thank you button that was set up in October 2015 to thank the 73-year-old leader is still up and running.
Kalla said on Sept. 25, 2015 that Indonesia need not apologise to neighbouring countries over the haze and that it needed only to ensure that the forest fires do not recur.
His comments follow the same theme throughout the years, which are targeted at countries complaining about the haze:
“For 11 months, they (our neighbours) enjoyed nice air from Indonesia and they never thanked us. They have suffered because of the haze for one month and they get upset.”
In June 2016, he also said Indonesia will not allow Singapore to prosecute its citizens suspected of causing forest fires that blanketed the region in haze in 2015.
For the thank you website, where one press = one thank you, those with hearts filled with gratitude could previously also leave a message of appreciation.
Here are some of the thanks that have been heaped on him:
