Sure....except I wasn’t making an assumption. 😁

So you are stating a fact? knowing nothing about me? or my experience with living and working in SEA for the past forty years - bold 🙂

A/C is great if you just stay inside.

    And then you step outside into the tropical heat and ...........

I take the dog out for a walk and I’m barely thawed out before I get home again. 💨

Looks like repainting your house will be no problem at all. How do you get food in there?

Sometimes with a shovel, other times with a catapult.

Jeez its 38 here in the Rai right now

Moving up to 40 degrees on wed !

I start to get a-bit hot under the collar with anything over 25

I tend to snap very easily

Oh well, i signed up for this !

It feels like I’ve got a short fuse these days !

The air quality isn’t helping much either

 

maybe it something more to do with your life style, finances, partner etc. only a thought im 62 years old the heat no problem for me.

I feel you man. Yesterday and today I snapped when I saw that my father-in-law had burned plastic garbage in the garden and on the farm again in this heat...

I lived in the north of Australia for over 30 years. Between the dry season and the wet season it was called the build up. This was also called the troppo season because a lot of people would "spit the dummy". That is they would become very "moody". The weather is a huge factor.

 

Good luck

Are you human?

 

Absolutely. If I wanted to keep cool, I would travel and retire in the Arctic. 

   Funny how most people prefer the hot tropics over the nice cool Arctic islands. 

     Beaches, Sandals and Hilton and Atlantis resorts don’t seem to be in much of a hurry to build resorts on the north shore of Alaska or the Arctic shores of Canada and Russia. 

   Ever wonder why biodiversity increases as you approach the Equator and lessens as you approach the Polar regions?  

    Life much prefers the hot tropics. 

Common sense!

Use AC 🙂 your body is "optimal" at 22c, sure you can get where you consider you have acclimatized, but you can't change how your body works, it don't like to be hot! it has to work harder to keep cool, the "energy" lost "acclimatizing" can be better used in staying healthy! 

Body is “optimal” at 22c?  That’s strange....my body temp is usually somewhere between 36.5c and 37.5c

    I think at 22c you would be deceased.

Well... I know you prefer the hot tropics....apparently combined with A/C... which seems to be a contradiction. If you run cool A/C and you’re not acclimatized, then every time you step outside will feel like walking into a hot oven or hot sauna and your going to suffer. 

     I would think that if you preferred it cooler, you would live in one of the many temperate countries, or maybe Alaska or Nepal, Sikkim, or northern Canada or Scandinavia. 

   My sincere apologies for finding it humorous when people move to the hot tropics....and then they complain that it’s hot.  

       Kind of like building your home on a floodplain...and then complaining when your home gets washed away some day. Or living on the slopes of a volcano, and being shocked to one day wake up and find lava flowing through your living room.
