It is so hot now, the temperature is very high but there are many people working out there under the sun from the morning to the evening while i am sitting in an air-con room for working. Summer time is the hell for people who have to rent a room/house for living because it is very hot and muggy while electricity price is high and may be cut off any time...I read some news and now i know that many husband-wife and their kids just live in a hot small room (from 10- 15 meter square) without an air-con because room/house for rent in here is very expensive, while i live alone in a big room and one adjacent room just for my cat in the second floor of a house. I am the poor, no house, no car, not much money in bank account but i am still lucky i think. Hope summer time gone soon....

I too can't use the air conditioner because it might raise up my electric bill. I am living on my own and it's very hot here. I can't afford yet to pay for a high electric bill because my salary isn't that big. And I have other expenses to take care of like the rent for the place, food, and transportation fares. I certainly can't pay a fortune yet so I am really putting up a budget plan.

Ya, i understand, but it is too hot then you can use it for a while when you are home or sleeping...I think this hot weather may not longer more...you can do save electricity in normal day and use it in these hot day...

Always there are people with lower standard of life. And people with higher standard of life. It is a bad thing if people doesn't get chance to do better with their life - good paid jobs and many privileges they can have, only having little more cash in their pockets, but that is life. I actually don't feel so sorry for people who doesn't have air condition, I feel sorry for people who doesn't have the more needed things in life, such as food and minimum payout to cover their most important needs. Actually at times I am one of these people, but there are other moments when everything is getting better and I feel calmer. So we are all part of this thing.

It is totally the hell for people with lower standard of life these days, especially in this city...because it is hot and muggy whole day and night without wind. You are still wet with sweat out even though you do nothing...and for sure it is not easy to sleep. Many husbands and wives did fight just because the hot weather makes them irritated...

Absolutely,you are lucky!I live in a student apartment with four people.There is only an electric fan rolling from day to night but still,we feel so hot.The best way to get cooler is to go to library where air-conditioning work until 9pm.In such a hot weather,many students around me choose sleeping or surfing on the Internet,only go out when afternoon comes.But our parents must be working hard inspite of the high tempreture.So I feel a little regret for them.

ya, it is very terrible when we use electric fan but it just blow hot wind. I can feel it..You can try some way to make your room cooler by put a basin of water in a room, or you can put a basin of water in front of a fan...then its wind may be cooler...

Hi Ryanong! I live in a tropical country and when you say summer, it is really hotter than other days. I have experienced living in a small room with only an electric fan (when I was studying in university). It was so difficult back then. But I am happy now that my place is better than before. I like to just stay inside my place or go to work because it's not hot at all.

ya, i can imagine how hot it was when you lived in a small room with an electric fan only. Summer in a tropical countries is very hot, i know well...it is hot, muggy and makes us very uncomfortable... I am happy to hear that you have a nice place that it is not hot in summer time. Ya, same as you, i just stay at home or in the office room with air-con when it is too hot outside...
