I read about that directive in Japan. Don't know which is worse, sweltering in the heat or freezing in the dead of winter. In China, government buildings supposedly do not turn on the heat until the official calendar date to turn them on, no matter how cold it gets, earlier than that time. I've seen pictures of my father-in-law with Chinese officials, all wearing parkas and other heavy coats inside their offices. Appeared to be so out of place.I chuckled when I read the following article in today's Daily Star edition.
"No suits, ties for 9 months
Male employees at government, semi-government and autonomous offices have been asked not to wear suits and ties, excepting formal occasions, from March to November to save electricity.
The Cabinet Division yesterday issued an order asking all concerned to follow a similar notice published on September 1, 2009.
The fresh notification comes as part of the government's efforts to save electricity. It was issued yesterday on instructions from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
...All male employees concerned have been asked to wear full or short-sleeved shirts and trousers.
I know in Japan they made a similar rule a few years ago but it was very uncomfortable for overseas visitors visiting Japan on business. Air conditioning was turned off and the white collar workers had to swelter in the summer heat.
I suggest all our office workers wear the lungi and a simple genji and may be carry a gamcha to sweep the forehead. Lungis are very comfortable if one knows how to tie it properly :lol:
Exactly! Its nothing.Which is? (What?) I don't think I know that one.
Heat is worse. You can bundle up quite a bit (thermal underwear, 3-4 layers, jackets..gain 20 lbs) for the cold but can only take so much off to escape the heat without causing sunburn or heat stroke.Don't know which is worse, sweltering in the heat or freezing in the dead of winter.
Wow, that's nice. You will be in my neck of the woods. Green Bay is a little milder than the Twin Cities owing to the warming effect of Green Bay(Lake Michigan). The temps won't be sub-zero for extended periods and you will be fine with a good quality Columbia winter jacket and some mittens and ear muffs. The Door County area is very scenic and you will enjoy the beautiful fall colors and miles of lake shore.^^ Speaking of weather Maruf Bhai, I am moving to Green Bay, WI in August. I was wondering what kind of jackets I should purchase. Any recommendations?
