KUNA posted construction workers for both government and private construction projects are now working at night because of the scorching summer sun. This is great but the real question is, how much of construction working are working at night? is it 10% of total construction in Kuwait? 80%-100%? Makes a big difference.
I wrote about this shirt and the NASA heat regulation technology it uses a few weeks back, you can read more about it [here]. I’ve worn the shirt a few times and before talking about the heat technology it’s worth noting the fabric is very unique, the shirt is anti-odor and forever wrinkle-free. Feels great on skin.
As for the heat absorbing fabric, I did feel less heat walking outside when it was around 40 C but what I didn’t feel was the shirt releasing the heat when in a cold area to balance my body temperature, to me it did the important part of absorbing it. Maybe I need to try it more to really feel the difference, not sure.
What disappointed me was right after I wore it a few times with light duty some threads of the fabric started distorting, right now there are at least 3 distorted threads. The shirt was suppose to withstand heavy duty with no problems.
I haven’t spilled coffee or juice on my shirt but I found this video on YouTube of a guy that did. Any stain is easily removed by pouring water on the shirt and rubbing it for a couple of minutes with some soap. For those interested in buying one, the shirt comes in light blue and white.[Website]
I might be overdoing it by ordering this shirt but I would do anything to reduce heat. Ministry of Supply had a kickstarter project that was very successful. It was to manufacture a shirt with a unique fabric used by NASA for astronauts. It absorbs heat when it’s a hot weather then when you’re in a cold place, like entering a building with air conditioning it seamlessly extracts that heat.
So at most times you will be having a balanced weather because of the technology used. The shirt cost me around $100 and is well on its way, will write if it actually makes a significant difference on a day to day bases or not.[Website]
Bloggers were invited to take a tour at night of Jumeirah Messilah Beach. The place looked stunning but it was pretty hot both indoor and outdoor so I couldn’t keep focus most of the time. They promised the heat issue was being work on and temperatures will be readjusted.
One of the most notable sights was the biggest chandelier in the middle east installed on one of their ballrooms. It was so huge all I did was just at it, there is no doubt it costed a fortune and a lot of patience to install. This also happens to be the wedding ballroom (hint to those getting married).
I will be staying in Jumeirah Messilah Beach sometime in June where I will be reviewing what’s it like staying there from morning to night and what available facilities one can enjoy. They currently have 3 of 5 restaurant open that you can try, the one pictured above is called Arabesque.
