Baking in KL



It's scorching hot in KL like you wouldn't believe it!

I should have known something is wrong when even Bee was complaining about the hot weather. The man needs a sweater during those early days of autumn in Melbourne when I'm still trotting around in my summer dresses.

Or when the stewardess announced that the temperature outside was 35°C as our plane landed at dawn.

35 degrees before 7 o'clock in the morning? That's madness!

It's one thing about trying to tolerate the hot and humid tropical weather I so passionately hate, another to be baking like a Thanksgiving turkey in this crazy heat.

Even with the air-conditioners blasting at full speed 24/7, it still feels like someone had turned on the giant oven and forgot to switch it off.

The best things to offer temporary relief in this ridiculous weather?

Chilled fresh watermelon juice (ice-blended!), flip flops, and the pool!

What are yours?

Water! with lots of ice :). Basically, I'm going to stay in the whole day until the sun set!

P/s: It just rained this morning :).

It is unbearable here too - this is why I don't love Malaysia. Somebody please attach large cable ties to both islands and tow it all the way up North!

Che-Cheh: In this weather? Highly unlikely. :P

Lila: Oh yes, I couldn't live without my facial mist spray in summer! Especially when I have to wear makeup. >_<

Have you tried Shu Uemura's Depsea Water Facial Mist? They're a Godsend in hot weather! :)

MisSmall said...

Iamthewitch: I know right? I live in tank tops and hot pants in Malaysia!

Emotionalistic: It's still bloody hot long after the sun has set! :(

P/s: I was still sleeping when it rained. The morning was cool until it started warming up again around lunch time, which is when I woke up. :/

MisSmall said...

Ann: Or down South. As long as it's further away from the damn equator huh? :/

Prettybeautiful: Trust me, hun, if I did, I'd be the only thing that is baking nicely in the kitchen. :P

Cbenc12: I hate the crowds in shopping malls on weekends. It's a nightmare trying to find parking too. :|
