Are you feeling better now?
I've been feeling knackered lately, maybe the SE Asian climate is only good for sitting in a bar drinking beer. After my Mandarin classes I've been feeling really drained.
Maybe I've sweated out all my nutrients or something.
I think not eating well isn't helping either. I need to move to a neighborhood where the food is less alien. Plus a lot of food here is just junk. You can buy a bag of peanuts here for like 2RMB, but honestly half of the packet looks like mud and stones. Food quality was much less of an issue back in Europe.
I don't think there's anything wrong with me apart from general exhaustion. I've just had my Chinese body check, and they tested just about everything!
A Chinese massage might help, its about $15 for an hour and a half. However, don't get the aggressive massage, that's when two women basically beat the hell out of you.
Yeah, like hell am I gonna order a massage. The other day I ordered a tea in a restaurant and ended up with a chocolate milkshake. My Mandarin is terrible, but not that terrible!
Although I did enjoy the couple of massages I had here a couple of years ago .
Oooooh, I WANT that! Sounds like a lot of fun. I have a lot of hell I need to get rid of.

Whenever I've seen photos of Manila in the 50s, 60s and 70s, people are walking around fully dressed (as opposed to tops off, flip flops, etc) and they seem fine. Why is heat and humidity an issue now, but not back then?
air conditioning makes me sick also i just use a fan when in a tropical area. as long as youre not korean just use a fan
I wondered the same thing too. lol. Furthermore, in the 1800's and the Wild West, you see photos of people wearing pants, long sleeve shirts and jackets. Not shorts or short sleeve shirts. I guess no one wore shorts or short sleeves shirts in the past. How did people back then do that when they were in hot weather or in Texas, Arizona or New Mexico during warm weather? Wouldn't they be sweating profusely and die of dehydration? I could not do that since I sweat too easily.

I suppose it could be that there was less traffic back then, so less pollution, which I imagine would make it hotter. Also, it could be this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_heat_island
Maybe it could even be simple things such as being more stressed because of the extra effort needed to cross roads, etc.
If Duterte can sort out the traffic, hopefully that will make things easier, at least for those who haven't been shot.
