In the porch. It’s that hot right now in the Philippines. Whewww! It’s summer time here and I never liked summer time, except for when I was still in school because that meant no classes for me. I stayed indoors though. I’m so not the type who likes burning my skin under the sun. And no, it’s not because I don’t want to tan. (Most Asians like their skin fair, while I am contented with the color I have, so no whitening creams and lotions for me.)
Again, it’s so hot that I can only go out under the sun maximum of a minute. You can walk outside and feel your head and it gets so hot way too fast. And I’m pregnant so I feel even hotter than most non-pregnant people.
So even if I didn’t want to buy an air conditioner because electricity cost here in the Philippines is insane, Mommy and I went ahead and bought one. It’s going to be delivered and installed this weekend. I have no choice! I can’t sleep anymore as I’m sweating like a pig and I get headaches all day long, even if I am home all the time. A pregnant lady needs her good night (and afternoon) sleep you know.
We are blessed to be living in a house with a high ceiling that lets the air circulate, so I can’t imagine those families who live in a house with low ceiling s and specially those who doesn’t have ceilings at all. Well what can I say, we have to survive.
So these past days have been about researching with air conditioner (AC) brand is good, is efficient and will not give me a headache. I’ve been looking at inverter AC’s so we won’t get a heart attack upon receiving the electricity bill. So it’s been about brands, horse powers compressors, wattage that I’ve been reading about way to much. (which reminds me I have to buy compression springs asap!) We bough a 1 HP inverter wall mounted split type AC. Just a helpful tip, it’s alright to listen to the sales person but you also have to do your own reading. Remember, they are there to sell, so they’ll tell you whatever it is you want to hear.
So I hope I don’t regret this purchase, that’s the reason I do so much reading and research, I don’t want to regret any purchase I make. I feel like it’s burning money and I’d hate seeing the thing for weeks. So yeah, I hope I made a great choice.
