Does a bus need air con 7am in the morning and its raining outside. Madness.

I think the bus drivers do it on purpose, they all seem unhappy and angry to me.

I can't imagine using a duvet in Singapore. It'd be like paying to cool things down, and then paying again to keep warm enough. We don't use air-con, just leave windows 'cracked ajar', and have a floor-standing fan. Works for us. There is a blanket on the bed for if things get 'cold' during the night.


I sleep much better in cold rooms (aircon) covered up in very warm blankets. I don't do that in Singapore much ($$$), but often when I stay at hotels now. It was also standard back in the west. I've read lots of people are like this.

I have a duvet with nothing inside and that is what I use. Is it still considered a duvet, or just a pair of sheets sewn together on 3 sides with buttons along the forth? :)

some of the drivers are a grumpy lot, some of them are cheerful, one guy says good morning to everyone who gets in, but yes the air conditioning in buses gets to me, its probably the number one cause of so many colds and allergies and perennially dry nose that i seem to be having.
I now sleep with the windows open at home, no A/C and just a fan. I just wish this cool feb weather continues for a long time.

Nonsense!

It's probably caused by all those people sneezing/coughing without covering their noses or mouths.
