Global Warming

Last night I had dinner with the boss Mr Randy Mok, who supplies the leading Japan's air conditioner DAIKIN Brand in our country. I complained to him that I have been sweating profusely everyday in the intense heat that has been baking us. I screamed out that our temperature hit the highest at 36 degrees C yesterday but he corrected me.





He pointed out that it was unbelievably 37.5 degrees Celcius just a while ago! It was never like this over the past years where we experienced such a long spell of extremely weather here. I think the hottest place I have ever visited was in the desert areas of Southern California during their summer and it was like 42 degrees!! It was burning my skin red and I could not forget that summer trip to Grand Canyon by car.

Today I read the online newspaper from across the Causeway and was shocked to hear that this phenomenon weather will become a normal change to our region where each day will become Hotter, Wetter and Drier!! I swooned and regained my sense to get prepared to this changes. I have been drinking 3 liters of water daily and shower 3-5 times a day because I sweat easily. I hope you guys will keep cool always and use protective sunblocks.

  1. These few days the weather got better.. Can sleep at night without the aircond.. But few weeks ago, yes, the aircond on everyday night.. Good thing is we work in the morning, then can jimat the aircond, and only on the aircond at night (and on weekends).. Now I paling takut those catuan air la... Got rain, flooded pulak.. No rain, catuan air pulak.. Haizzzz...

    1. I agree that good thing we are working and I turn on all the air conds in office till full blasts!! My boss will jump when the bill comes later.

      It rains heavily almost daily after hours of hot sun killing us. I hope the reservoir will fill up.

  2. Yes, its terrible. The heat is unbearable and it is getting hotter and hotter and hotter! In the evening after my shower, within a short while, I will be sweating buckets again! Thank God for air conditioners!

    1. Yup thanks for the air conditioning!

      I wonder whether you should start making cold jellies and ice cream instead of baking cakes. Your oven is adding heat until 38 degrees later. Muahahahaha

  6. DAIKIN!! err, lately there's one aircond using a very cheeky slogan "hou lang song" I can't remember if that is DAIKIN or some other brand, muahaha!! the mind behind this slogan, okay, thumbs up for the courage (not creativity).. so did Mr Mok give a DAIKIN aircond for free to Anay after he heard you ranting on the hot weather?? :p

    1. No, that's ACSON brand, different one I think..

    2. I didn't know Daikin brand until my ex HKG boss explained that they are really air cond specialists with a range of high end models to cater for the well heeled buyers. Acson is not very popular these days.

  7. I think 36°C is not the highest temperature recorded in Malaysia, I remember there were some days back in the past couple of years that recorded a whopping 38°C in the day!! scary huh?? and I think 35°C is actually considered "mild" under such warm weather.. remember when Anay was still in the Chennai slum?? those days Anay need to jump into the river to cool yourself down under the 40°C sun?? so what is 35°C to Anay?? cool peanuts lah~~

  8. I personal experience, the hottest weather I felt was when I was in Dubai 10 years ago, during the Ramadhan.. and you know Ramadhan also means scorching hot?? that was one day I felt like I was in an oven, and the wind blows like hot air from hairdryer.. furthermore there was a slight sandstorm (due to the weather I guess).. and back in the office after lunch, the client told me it was recorded a historical 52°C!!! I couldn't believe as this number is way too far for my imagination, but let's trust the locals..

    1. Yikes!!!! 52°C!!! I would be burnt to ashes on the spot. That's awfully hot and crazy. The camels still looked cool like nothing is hot to them. You lucky devil having visited all sorts of exotic places on this planet!
      Muahahahaha hot air like hairdryer!!!!

  9. yeah.. warm and dry season and let's all pray there won't be water rationing thing like last year.. hoi!!! you bathe 3-5 times a day!!! you don't have to work?? and you are using up all the water!!! but frankly, it's hard to believe a country with rich natural resources and selling water to others, will ever be threatened by the lack of water supply.. I think developed countries never have such a problem even if they do not have as many reservoirs huh??

    1. Yup I bathe 3 times daily on weekdays. Morning before work, evening after work and night time before sleep. I cannot stand my body being sticky and sweaty these days.

      Our govt is severely screwed up in planning. They should let Tun M be PM again as he claimed belum nyanyok lagi.

    2. haha..I bathe 3 times too..morning before work, evening after dinner and night after work..

  10. Still surviving. Lol

    But yes, I am making sure hydration is enough.

    At least some of us are blessed with aircond and we are lucky if we don't experience water cuts.

  11. Yes, it was so darn hot today as I go for my lunch and kopi break. I thought of doing my evening run but think twice and rather do it in the morning. Well, I think the hot season is here and hoping the haze will not come so soon....
    It's the time of the year again where I have to on my air-cond. every night. How I miss Year-end.... sigh...
    Drink more water and some isotonic drinks too!

    1. I totally forgot about the haze! That would be nice to smell the soot and haze again while the govt cannot do anything. I believe the isotonic drink is very refreshing on hot days! Good idea shared.

  18. I have to turn on the air conditioning whenever I'm at home or work or to sleep. I can't imagine life without air con, a friend of mine said that it's the #1 thing that temperate countries (like ours) needs for a productive workforce. I think he's right.

    1. I wish the whole KL is inside the air cond glass bowl like The Truman Show by Jim Carrey.
      I always agree that people in 4 season countries tend to be well prepared for seasonal changes, innovative and perhaps hard working too.

    2. Indeed! It's almost impossible to work in the heat!
