Just when you learn to cope with the cold, winter’s gone in a poof and it’s hello heat and humidity…

1. Your favorite thing in the world is no longer your room heater, but your GLORIOUS DE-HUMIDIFIER. Pouring water from your de-humidifier is, simply, the most satisfying feeling in the world.

2. You stop craving chicken pot and soup noodles, and are constantly lusting after sashimi and sushi, cold noodles, and ice-cold tofu pudding.

5. The super warm underwear that you wore religiously every single day? It’s now at the bottom of your closet with your sweatpants and leather boots.

10. The entirety of Hong Kong literally smells like salted fish. The stink is everywhere… at least until October!

11. The air is so thick and stagnant it feels like you’re walking through a bowl of congee. Suddenly a breeze, and you stop in your tracks to savor it.
