Scorching! Blistering! Blazing!

God, the weather out there is just blistering. It hasn't rained in god knows how many days and right now I feel like I'm living in some desert smack right in the middle of the equator! I cannot seriously remember it being this hot ever!

I was sweating worse than a pig (if pigs sweat, that is) this morning while doing the household chores. There I was with my disposable gloves cleaning the kitchen and I was dripping more sweat than soap all over the kitchen.

Maybe all that talk about the world ending is somehow true cos I've never experience the weather ever being this hot. Granted we live in a darn tropical country with one blooming season all year round, which is hot, hot and more hot but never like this! And when it gets this hot, I get even crankier than I normally am and so does wifey and having two cranky people at home is not a good combination ... LOL!

I think if I went out and put some bread on the floor outside it would probably be toasted in no time. Hmmm, that's not a bad idea really seeing as how it's almost tea time anyway. Why oh why can't we have snow right now. Please god, I'll be good, really good if you could just let it snow for one hour. I'm not asking too much now am I? Just one miserable hour, that's all. I'm sure it wouldn't be too much of a problem for you, right? Just wave your magic wand or whatever it is you use to make miracles happen and give me some snow.

I remember when I was a kid and times when I wasn't feeling too anti-social, I'd join my cousins and head outside the house (we had a huge compound back then, unlike the tiny space that passes for a front lawn that I have these days) and play football in the blazing 3.00pm sun which compared to the blazing 3.00pm sun of today seemed mild in comparison.

I'll bet if I stood out there for 2 minutes, my brains would fry in no time. Maybe I should go and wash my car. It never fails to rain whenever I wash my car. Or Carol, maybe you can go wash your car cos I remember the same happens to you as well when you wash your car ... hahaha ... Actually it's just too hot to even step out of the house. And judging by how bright and sunny it is out there I don't think it's going to rain for quite a while.

Ok, enough of rambling about the bloody heat, I'm going to take a bath and see if that brings my temperature down a little. I hope you're all having a hot and great time just like me. I mean, I don't want to be the only one who is suffering all by myself now do I? LOL!

  5. The heat's been terrible for the past few weeks. This is extreme summer! But even as much as I dislike the extreme heat, I don't like the bitter cold and dryness in other parts of the world. Better slather on sunscreen before going out. And a good time for laundry!

  6. here we are wishing for more sun and there you are wishing for some snow...hehehe...seriously, since I came to live in Seattle, I miss the sun back in Msia alot. Whenever I go to the beach here, I can only stand in the water for 10 seconds before my feet starts freezing :( . I'm a beach bum, that makes it so much harder D:

  7. You have my undying sympathy Nick. It is only just starting to cool down here and the second month of Autumn is almost over. We've even had buckets of rain over the past few days which we haven't seen for months and months. Sorry...I guess that doesn't make you feel any better does it?

    Yeah, you guys had it back not so long back, ya? Glad things are cooling down so much more for you guys.
