Aircon Nation

I admit I am one that cannot survive without air-conditioning.

Just look at all the aircon condensers. Looks like I am not the only one.

Blimey! That is a lot of coolers. They almost hide the buildings!

excellent shot! so well captured huh?

I just had a korean colleague who complained that the temp indoors in hotels in sing is just too cold for him. We were like 'what? u come from the cold cold land of seoul'. He was like 'yea, but our aircond in summer is set at 24degrees C.. u guys have it at 12degrees indoors!'

This looks like the back lanes of boat quay? The building looks like one of those skyscrapers in CBD ;-)

I belongs to the minority...lol. I prefer the fan than the air conditioning unless it is extremely hot. I guess living on the higher floors help. My two sons are like you...lol.

Wow! That is a lot of air conditioning units.

How much is your electricity bill a month? When I lived in NYC with A/C, I paid roughly $45/month in winter and $80/month in summer.

the writer,
thanks :-)

marley,
you need the coolers here in Singapore! unless it's raining. :-)

Leif Hagen,
Hmmmm i wonder if there's statistics available somewhere.

cumi & ciki,
sure or not? I thought they have this campaign in Spore that asks everything to set the aircon at 25 degrees C.

I like 24C. Think it's just nice. Not too warm and not too cold :-)

anon,
yes! spot on!

alicesg,
In the day time when I am at home, I use the fan. Only when I am sleeping at night, we turn on the aircon.

SCPHP,
Thanks :-)

Ming,
Here it is summer all year long. It is around $90/month. It all depends on the oil prices too. The rates in Singapore fluctuate with the global oil prices.
