Hey guys, you forgot the other major component...humidity. 45C with 20% humidity doesn't feel as oppressive as 35C with 80% humidity. With one it feels you shrivel up and the other you melt. :confused_smile:

Funny how we tend to forget the Malaysian "winter" as we are so thankful the nights get cooler, more rain and days almost balmy. Its when the temperature goes up with the humidity and we duct under a fan , we realise we will have 8 months of the same before the next respite. Frankly I love it and it means I can sleep on top of the bed with no covers and feel the lazy fan creating a constant breeze over me with my sarong chucked up around my nether region.:eek:

What hot weather ? It's 27.2 degrees and the thermo is next to the TV. A light breeze through the windows and it's great.

Sure, about 32 in the shade this afternoon, but with the fans and sitting next to the open fridge, perfect.

Sounds like sailing weather. Slap on the suncream, get the sails up, tab off a cold one...hell in the tropics:thumbsup:

Well I gotta tell ya Strider, I was out with an Aussie couple last night and they said the humidity here (Penang) was about the same as in Aus when they left. Maybe Aus got a bit of global warming or something.

Oz is sort of a big place and depends where you are. Not many countries you can sunbath in wonderful temperate conditions in one spot and snow sky in another....or.....get flooded in one spot, have a dought in another, snow falls in yet another while bush fires burn your house down in yet another.:blink::eek::confused:

Get used to it while you're in Malaysia..:)

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
Hey I got no problem with the heat in Malaysia whatever. I have not used A/C in the house for many years. ( therefore a very low electricity bill) Car A/C sometimes if its been standing in the sun or I have passengers who can't take the heat.

The thing that amuses me is the freezing cold settings and 100% usage of A/C Malaysian have in office and home. Must be acclimatising themselves in case the equator starts freezing.:blink:

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
Actually the heat must be affecting me, as I must have B.O.or summit as my rep points are so low, its obvious I'm putting people off:o

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
Crikey Strider, you've lost me there. A bit too cryptic.

Hey Stranded, which part of Penang did you go to? Did you enjoy?

Bloody hell, it's dropped about 10 degrees C I reckon. Lubbly jubbly. Might have to find a pullover.

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
Yikes that's cold. It's about 25 degrees here (was around 36 degrees yesterday) then big overnight downpours and most of today.

Re: It's sooooo hot

Strider24 Apr 30th 2011 8:07 am

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
Wah. Two snog's for the price of one and I'm not paying for it anyway....and the J&B was OK as well.:p

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
I didn't watch it but trying to catch the News last night and that's all they were showing on the box. Nice dress though ;)

Strider24 Apr 30th 2011 11:19 am

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
Which dress? Kate's or sister Pippa bum hugging number?:thumbsup:

bakedbean May 1st 2011 3:40 am

Re: It's sooooo hot
 
I thought both dresses were very nice actually. I liked Kate's dress, very nice, it suited her, but is it just me - she looks painfully thin. Hope she puts on a bit of weight.
