Hang on to your hat!

Australians love summer. Especially Melbournians. We pine all year long for the days of sweltering heat to arrive. But when it finally crash lands, we complain about how unbearable it all seems. It really is a case of “be careful what you wish for”. Stay a little while in the sun, and you literally cook. Turn on the cold water tap, hot water almost scald your fingertips. Going to the beach, you’ll be lucky not to suffer heat-stroke on the way there.

I too, used to crave for summer. But now that I have a 8 week old under my care, and finally realise that too much of a good thing is a bad thing, case in point, UV rays, I spent most of this week hermit-ing and visualising Antarctica.

But of course, if you are a devout worshipper of sun and sand, you’ll pay no heed to my ramblings. Just remember to saturate yourself in sunscreen and cover your pretty visage with a hat. Trust me, you’ll be grateful later.

澳大利亚人爱夏天。尤其是墨尔本人。我们一直期待着夏天临到的日子,但当大热天终于来了,我们都急着抱怨不堪。这个星期是墨尔本今年最热的。在阳光下待一会儿,你就会被晒伤。打开冷水龙头,热水竟然冲在你的手上。去海边,你很有可能在半路上就中暑。

我以前非常渴望夏天的到来。但现在,有了宝宝,并终于意识到太阳紫外线对皮肤的损伤,本周我大部分时间都隐蔽在家里。

我知道如果你超爱阳光和沙滩,你照样会去晒太阳。不要忘记全身涂满防晒霜,并带一顶帽子。听话,你以后会感激我的。

Yes but not all australians are like that. Bring back our winter I say. It’s mild. And good.

Aww I hope the weather cools for you soon! I’m finding hats more and more essential for summer wear, never used to be a big hat person before!
