It’s getting colder and colder.. about 10°C
Well, I know that it’s nothing as compared to Hokkaido that can be ranged from −12°C to −4°C (10°F to 25°F) in Winter or Sapporo that has mean temperature of 8.5°C all year around.. I should be blessed that it’s warmer here, instead of complaining.. ^^
Basically, I love cold compared to hot climate.. but since this is my first time experiencing such a real natural cold weather, not the cold air from Air Con like in Indonesia.. So recently I shiver quite much : while riding Chiro, freeze after having bath, and also when I sleep at night(without heater).
Winter comes means misc expenses do raise and cost more such as : electricity utility, winter blouse and sweaters, boot, scarf, hat, food (because I tend to eat more, -_-; how can I lose weight? ).. And just now, I also bought electric blanket..
I was confused of the choice buying portable heater or electric blanket. But finally I bought electric blanket..
My friend gave his opinion of what kind of survival kit to buy. 😛 But unfortunately, the msg came right after I decided and paid my electric blanket. hehe.. But thanks friend!
I would like to share with you, in case you need pre-sales testimonial. ^^
1. Electric Blanket
It’s good to diminish the cold while sleeping but limited for the purpose of sleeping only, while the room remains cold.
Bad point : not too good for health. Too long sleeping with this electric blanket will turn you out like toasted bread? 😛 hehe
Good point : keep you warm sleeping.
2. Electric Heater
Depends on the types. There are ones that don’t disperse the heat in proper way all through the room (only to certain place). So better find out the product info before buying.
Bad point : cost more on electricity.
Good point : safe
3. Oil Heater
Sometimes it will cause the smell of of burning-off the heating elements. Most area prohibit using this kind of heater.
Bad point : may be dangerous
Good point : Heat disperse well, economical
PS. My electric blanket, and the scarf that I planned to knit (but seems like no progress).
Bad point : May be dangerous
Good point : The heat distribute well all through the room, economical
