My least favourite time of the year 嫌いな季節
This is the start of my least favourite time of the year in Hong Kong. It’s going to get hot and really humid and while those two factors make it an unpleasant period they’re not what I hate most. What I hate most is the horrendous air conditioning abuse that goes on absolutely everywhere.
In this city, many of the store fronts lack doors so are completely open yet even the ones that do have doors will have them thrown wide open with the air conditioner blasting so hard and so cold you almost need a jacket as you walk past them. I went to the supermarket the other day and could feel the blast of cold air 20 meters before I actually got to the door. In my own workplace the a/c unit will be blasting so cold that many of the staff resort to putting sweaters on. Don’t even get me started on the fact that they don’t seem to even think about keeping the windows and doors closed. As they like to say here, ‘Ayaaa’!
The photos have nothing to do with air-con abuse so just enjoy.
