Today, like every other day in Malaysia, is probably really hot outside. Yet, despite how uncomfortable it is, Malaysians have come to accept that hot weather is just part of life in our wonderful country.
But, that acceptance doesn’t stop us from doing very peculiar, sometimes maybe a bit too extreme, things to escape the heat. Here are 8 things we know you do all the time – it’s okay you don’t have to be shy, we do it too.
You turn anything you can find into a makeshift fan. Nothing is off limits.
Ask for extra ice when ordering drinks. The drink should be 70% ice and 30% liquid.
When that doesn’t work, order a whole cup of only ice and munch on it.
When that still doesn’t work, resort to questionable traditional ‘cooling’ methods like drinking water out of a durian’s husk.
Umbrella, umbrella, umbrella. Doesn’t matter how long you’re planning on staying outside, the umbrella has to be open.
You always have spare clothes with you because you’ll definitely sweat buckets and have major pit and back sweat stains.
You rock these gloves while driving, and are completely okay with it.

You pretend to look at merchandise when you go to shops, but in reality, you’re just standing under the air-conditioner. Well played, well played.
Speaking of air-conditioners, Mitsubishi Electric Group has just introduced two new energy-saving inverter series air-conditioner that can finally help you put an end to all the silly things that you do to escape the Malaysian heat.
The first of the two is the MSZ-LN series, which features the 3D i-see sensor. The cool (no pun intended) feature detects the presence and position of people in the room, then adjusts the air conditioning to provide the perfect amount of heating or cooling. It also enhances the room’s comfort level seeing that the air flow can be controlled accordingly.
The MSZ-LN series also incorporates Mitsubishi’s Plasma Quad Plus technology, an advanced multi-stage air-cleaning system that filters any bacteria, viruses, allergens, dust, and microparticles up to PM2.5 in ambient air.
The second of the two is the MSY-JP series which is designed to maximise airflow and volume, projecting air current up to 12m using its Cross Flow Fan technology. It also features a slim profile, which blends seamlessly with any interior.
Both MSZ-LN and MSY-JP series also come with Mitsubishi Electric’s proprietary Dual Barrier Coating (DBC), which prevents the accumulation of dust, grease, smoke, and dirt. Both series of air-conditioners also use the new eco-friendly R32 gas.
