Right after continuous rainstorms for two weeks, we are hit by excruciating heatwaves now. The change wasn't a gradual one. It happened overnight. It's as if someone up there had flipped the rainstorm switch off and turned the heatwave switch on. Madness!
Right at where I stood in the photo, I was bitten by three mosquitoes! I was wearing insect repellent!! I would have been eaten alive by the mosquitoes if I had forgotten my insect repellent. Forget high-end perfumes in fancy bottles. My summer scent is always a blend of rosemary, lemongrass & citronella oil as the mosquitoes in Hong Kong simply couldn't resist my blood. My husband didn't wear any insect repellent and he had zero mosquito bite. Case in point.
I am starting to think that mosquitoes can actually smell out individuals who are allergic to their bites and then zero in on them. Nasty little villains.
