a poor man's way of surviving the heat

Yesterday was indeed a very hot day, as predicted. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay in an air conditioned room for the morning until 2.30pm.

Sydney's beaches packed

According to the news, Sydney's beaches were packed. Obviously, not everybody has an air conditioner at home, unlike most people in beautiful Boston, picturesque Quincy have at least one.

badly bittenUnfortunately, the poor Antony was badly bitten by either mosquitoes or sandflies (or whatever flying insects that bites and sucks blood). (According to Wikipedia, sandfly is also known as horse flies in the States.) Unfortunately, I am always the one getting bitten by insects. This is a quick photo of my arm. The photo was taken yesterday by Laurent using my iPhone 3G. To avoid getting more bites, I had to cover myself up with long sleeves. The heat certainly did not help the skin redness.

That was right, in a 40C hot day, I was wearing long sleeves.

The New South Wales Postcard Collectors Society Inc had a postcard fair at the Imar Hall in Croydon, and I had to be there from 7am with Laurent. (Just for the reference, I am not interested in postcards, nor a collector.)

Usually, I bring my MacBook Pro there, so I don't get bored there. However, I decided not to bring the laptop yesterday. Instead, I brought my PSP there with newly bought Tetris game on it.

The main reason I carried my PSP there was to tease a young boy. That boy sometimes plays his (cheapish) portable music player there or uses his mobile phone to play some sort of kids music pretty loud there. It seems to me that boy does not appreciate the value of an iPhone, hence, a portable gaming device would have a better effect on teasing him, in my honest opinion.

Well, back to the main topic, this device is the survival tool for a poor man like Antony in a hot day:
a paper fan
A fan, a manual fan I shall say. No batteries or any sort of electricity is needed. It was given to me by Rev. Dr. Wu Yi. Although not as comfortable as inside an air conditioned room, that fan did help quite a lot. Better than nothing I'd say.

(to Don: Antony is poor and the arm is black.)

Hope your bug bite feels better. Warm temperatures seem like a nice thought, it's freezing here!

Now that is HOT, but then I suppose you're used to it.

Hey,do have a zoo of blood-sucking insects?I have to asked it because you get beaten seriously by them. Though the beach was packed,it's good to go their to have some relieved moments from this heat and for some fun instead of sitting under AC.
