The Beautiful Heatwave.

Tuesday, January 25, 2005

The days are getting increasingly hotter as Chinese New Year draws closer. Even if you are on holiday, like yours truly, there is hardly any motivation to venture out when you pull up your bamboo blinds, and a headache immediately creeps into your head from the blinding rays of the sun. Forget going out and "living it up"- the best things to do on such hot Malaysian days is to stay home, and procrastinate. Just a tank top, your bed and the faithful fan (aircond being the better alternative, but beware the bills!).

I wonder why this heatwave can't be as sexy as that video by Rob Thomas and Santana, Smooth. I suppose one would have to live on a street in New York where people live in close proximity, and you have brownstones where teens hang around spouting rap rhymes, and old ladies lay on their lounge chairs tanning. Maybe one just needs Rob Thomas to walk around their neighbourhood. Rawr. Talk about temperatures shooting up.

(The little demon on my shoulder says that maybe I need to be a model, like those chicks in the video.)

The whole of Life exists in a balance, so when we have mindfckingly hot days, the nights (at least where I am, anyway) have been the most beautiful I've seen in a long while. There has been a full moon these past few nights, and there's not a cloud in the sky to shield away the stars. If I could, I would climb on to the roof and lie there, staring at the sky. I would take a picture, and Photoshop it to say "Wish You Were Here" because what good is such beauty if you don't share it with your loved ones?

There's a soundtrack that plays as these ying-yang of days cancel out the ones left in January. It started out slow, but it is now accelerating to its finish. The last few days of the month will be centered around friends: tomorrow a farewell party for three very important, very beautiful ladies in my life and the day after, and this will make y'all jealous, I will be temporarily escaping the heatwave by going to Cantoland.

I hope they have starry nights in Hong Kong.

Be back with much love (ie pics),

    Is that what you REALLY think summer in New York is like?!?

    BTW I would gladly take a heat wave right now... it is 15 degrees Farenheit out here right now.

    C.J. Fusco:

    I don't know about that...

    When I used to live in Boston, I would go for long bike rides along the Charles River. One day, I noticed that there was hardly anyone else biking, running, jogging, or rollerblading on the path that is usually jam-packed... I spent the entire time trying to figure out what the hell was going on.

    When I got back to my apartment, two of my roommates were slumped over on the couches, shirtless, sweating, with two fans on them apiece. They looked at me like I was crazy.

    "Were you out biking IN THIS?!?"
    "Yeah, what's the big deal?"

    Turns out that it was one of the hottest days in Boston history-- 109 degrees or something like that. I didn't even notice.

    One of the technique I saw people doing when the weather heats up, is to go shopping in department store; which may not a good solution as you may spend more that the power bills of air-cond. Hahahaha :D
