This is the only summer that we never went to the beach! We are very laid back at home this summer with baby around. It's hard to go on long trips because baby doesn't like being strapped and buckled for a long time. We can't be so lenient with him because we don't want to get in trouble and get cited with ticket for that reason. Also it's so much safer if baby settles down and just stay buckled. It's okay with me staying home as long as baby's with me, I have so much joy taking care of this little boy. He keeps me sane even with the extreme temperature that we're experiencing.

Can you believe it, summer's almost over but all of a sudden a heat wave caused severe hot weather here? Yesterday was terrible with temperature around 98-100F and today 91-94F (that's around 40+C). Terribly hot right? Baby's lucky because mom's package came already and he has "aircool" tanktop (similar to finely netted fabric) which kept him cooler than wearing a shirt. He also has cute little sleeveless tops dad sent him before. Anybody will sweat like a pig being roasted with such heat. We had to make use of all the exhaust fans, electric fans and air cooler at the same time to keep our place in tolerable temperature. It feels so good right now that it's a lot better than yesterday. I can feel a good cool breeze from the window.

We didn't bother going out to do our walk and get some sun anymore. I tried searching on the net with the topic "beating the summer heat" and it lead me to several sites including http://www.myrtlebeachgolf.net. A lot of Myrtle Beach golf courses were given together with Myrtle Beach golf packages. I know golf is something good to do on sunny days but I don't think I'd dare play even some rounds under scorching heat, I might just faint on the grass! Finally after several more searches I got more valuable tips to promote passive cooling at home. I had to apply it right away with whatever we have here to make it work or else it could've been like an oven in here. Oh well it looks like it will be better tomorrow and I have to retire for tonight. Baby's almost waking up for his feeding and I'm getting really sleepy. g'nightie!!

    That's hot! Even hotter than we are experience in Malaysia. @.@

  5. When baby is still small, it is better to stay at home. We have been experiencing hot weather almost daily here. Hehehe.

    Never mind, when baby grows bigger, you can go travelling again... Better, as your kid will see and experience things and can remember. Wow! So hot! And Down Under in Oz, they're complaining about the cold and the wet weather...and in NZ too. Extreme weather conditions - global warming.
