    victorviper (1 maand(en) geleden) #53487374Where I live, days over 100F (38 C) are not uncommon, and my hot weather climate summer survival tips are:
    1. Get some good heavy curtains/blinds for the house to keep the sun out and keep the house comfortable.
    2. Get a sunshade for your car. In the summer, that's almost a necessity, else you open the car door and it feels like opening the oven.
    3. Wear light colors. Dark clothing absorbs heat.
    4. Plan outside activity in the morning/evening hours.


    All noted, thank you! #2 I already experienced in my month in Florida...I had a rental car without sunshades and it was indeed like stepping in an oven and any bare skin would sizzle in the car seat. Almost every parked car had a sunshade. It's completely something you don't think about when you are not from a place with hot weather. Over here, my car always has an ice scraper and towel in it. :D

    Thanks again! ^^ I'll keep you posted on what happens, although the move can take quite a while more because of all the paperwork involved.

    Man, now I really want to move somewhere with nice and warm weather. xD Anyway if you have some tips about how to adapt to hot weather, feel free to share them, anything helps! :)

    OtoriKohaku (1 maand(en) geleden) #53476946Good luck with your move! I’ve moved around my fair share, so I know how hard it can be sometimes. Hope everything goes smoothly for ya!

    Thank you! I've moved around a lot as well, although this would be my first time to move to outside of Europe. There is so much paperwork and preparation involved, it really can't be compared to my earlier moves! X_X But I'm looking forward to it as well. Thanks again! :)

    victorviper (1 maand(en) geleden) #53477276I look forward to seeing a review of Lucchini. Most of the Strike Witches figures out there feature the characters as they appear in the anime, but that figure looks much more like the way Francesca was depicted in some of Humikane Shimada's earliest illustrations of the character.
    I'm also intrigued by the manufacturer. It looks like they made a bunch of figures over the course of a year or two and then promptly disappeared! I was looking at their MFC entry and saw that they made this ITEM #97602; I bet that figure is borderline impossible to find these days!
    The Kracie food kits also look interesting. Sometimes, those food kits turn my stomach a little bit (when they take the appearance of a savory food and end up being super sugary-sweet), but these look like they might actually taste like they appear.
    A possible move to a tropical climate, huh? That might be interesting, although moving from a place where it's temperate to a place where the weather is much warmer can be a real shock; it was for me anyway.


    That Lucchini...*sigh*, it's like you are looking at a special edition prize figure or something. Or a action/prize figure hybrid with all those parts and replacement options. I can already tell with her in the box that she is definitely not worth the ¥4,200 release price. I do like how she can be displayed with her knives, as that is something that I think no other figure of her has. By the way, please don't think I'm not appreciating the gift! She will get a nice spot in my collection and I am sure my Santa didn't pay a fortune for her. It's just a realllyyyy strange release/quality/story behind this figure...

    When I see such empty entries like ITEM #97602 I get really curious to how many of that figure were produced. Only 7 people own her here! That series was quite popular back in the day. Their other figures that interest me are ITEM #4640 (I'm expecting low quality with her too, so only for a low price if I ever see her) and ITEM #1214 , although that last one got cancalled (I guess it was already going downhill with the company before they put him in production).

    Yeah, the two sets I got in this blog are both going to taste like the actual items (although those are also sweet foods), so I'm hoping nothing too artificially sweet!

    The longest I've spend in a hot climate was one month in Florida. I got really badly sick my first couple of days there and then slowly had to adapt. Especially the switch of it being really hot outside and then the blasting cold of the AC inside was completely the opposite of how it works where I live now (almost always cold outside and you need to have a good heating system in your home). I do have to say that after I got used to it, I thought it was rather nice that you could just go outside in shorts and a t-shirt after applying some sun screen and be sure to arrive at the place where I needed to be in good condition instead of putting yourself in 1000 layers, go into weather that has a lot of wind and/or rain and arrive at your destination looking like you were blown away and/or came from the shower and having to re-do all your hair and make-up before you can step into work/be presentable for your friends/family. :D Man, now I really want to move somewhere with nice and warm weather. xD Anyway if you have some tips about how to adapt to hot weather, feel free to share them, anything helps! :)
