Fighting the heat

It's summer down here and I'm being stricken with the merciless heat for a few days now.... 34 celcius... and the heat is hurting my skin, I'm serious..... there is real problem with the ozone layer here in Australia, I never experienced a more hurting heat elsewhere T.T

For your info I prefer cold to hot places, maybe this preference stems from living most of my life in tropical country, human can only sweat so much you know......

It's too hot now, even inside my house, my portable aircon isn't very supportive either, which left me with only my creativity to defend my hot self.

So, what to do during intense summer heat when you cant turn to aircon for help?

1. Turn all the lamps off, while saving the earth you also save yourself from some heat, killing two birds with one stone, that's what I'm talking about lolz


2. Minimize movement. Still, don't forget to breathe..


3. Eatting/drinking cold things, like ice cream, ice coffee, and for good alternatives chilled fruits, fruit juice or yogurt


4. Open the freezer section of the fridge and dip your head into it for a couple of minutes hahaha I really do it...seriously... :p


5. Think about cold places, hahaha ok...better stop, I started to sound desperate..........



Any other tips??

Hope you all have a nice day!! keep smiling and loving! ^^

You must have the cleanest pores after all that heat!!! :P You've got some good advice here--and I love those pictures

When it's hot here I have to keep an eye on my family to keep them from opening the blinds on windows facing the sun--they let it pour in. And sometimes my wife gets an urge to make homemade potato salad, boiling potatos on a hot day!!! :(

If our aircon goes out, we visit stores and the library more than usual.

I wish I could send you some of our weather--we're getting another 10-20 inches of snow on Tuesday. We're going to break records this winter. My office is closed again on Tuesday and I'm betting it will on Wednesday too.

Keep cool!!! =)

love this post! i do the #4 too sometimes, haha... when i seriously can't stand the hotness, i would take out a pack of ice and fan it towards me, the wind will be much more colder :D
btw, my brother will go to Melbourne next week. too bad i can't go there with him... but probably next few months i'll visit him! I'll tell you if i do :)

Sarah said...

LOL omg I do that too!! Stick my head in the freezer lol or I open the fridge door and just stand in front of it!!!!
I also like just having a cold shower (just like jump in/out) wet hair always cools you down and freshens you up!!!
Or maybe just come visit me and we can laze by the pool together ;)

Kym said...

my fave is "minimize movement" hahaha! ;P usually i'd say "lets trade places" but uhmm no thnx.. i've been hearing lots about how freakishly hot australia has been! =S do you guys have a swimming pool? i guess if its an outdoor pool it'd be more like a sauna. haha!

.maitai said...

thanks for the congrats hun. :) Valentine's Day...actually the boyfriend is going to be out-of-town so I have no idea what we're doing...well, maybe like a late dinner or something when he gets back into town. :( What about you?

Iyah said...

Christy said...

naomi said...

Hahaha this post is soo funny!! Wait, are you in Australia right now? I didn't know that. Did you move??? or are you just traveling?

Pop Champagne said...

Air Conditioner is my boyfriend in the summer. My AC BF Heir gives me wonderful things such as comfort, and ability for me to sleep AND he is beside me at all times! ha!

Dina (XYYan) said...

RicAdeMus said...

I hope you were not affected by the recent floods!

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

Awww. That picture of the dog eating the ice cream literally made me say AWWWW. I know, it's freakin hot here in the Philippines as well. The heat really burns. I miss winter time. But for now, I guess I'll have to just grab myself an ice cream. =)

Fifi said...

My blog has a white background but maybe it didn't come through on your phone. :(

.maitai said...

That's so cool that you friend ended up doing that! hopefully I'll be able to too :D

*Nehs* said...

hi hun. hihi.. 3-4 times washing my face, no drying for me. :) sometimes i wash 4 times. hehe.. i have oily skin and whwever i see oil on my face i wash it off. :))

Golden said...

Funny! :)
I love cold places too. I think this is the reason why I don't move to big cities here in the Philippines (like Manila). I just can't stand the heat there!

By the way, I just read somewhere that you could also minimize the heat in your house if you paint your roof white. It is because the color white absorbs less heat compared to other colors.

Lots of love,

How's the heat treating you my dear? I'm just about ready to give up on even applying foundation I tell ya :P

evie said...

lol..i live in a hot and humind country..

your minimise movement is funny haha!...i think just keep drinking chilled drinks and stand under a fan(to prevent frequent trips to the freezer) would be good XD

Soapaholic said...

Summer's starting here in the Philippines too and it's so hot! Ice cold water or drinks really help, and going to the mall!! Haha.
