A Portable Air Conditioner for My Aunt

27/03/2013 17:02

When we visited my aunt last month, we found her new apartment to be hot and stuffy. So my siblings and I decided to get her a portable air conditioner on her 70th birthday which took place recently. After much discussion and poring over many portable air conditioner reviews, we finally decided on a suitable unit.

My aunt loves our present very much. She likes that it is so portable and the fact that it is rather slim so it does not take up much space in her tiny apartment. She also likes it because it is mounted on casters and it is light enough for her to move it to any room.

The area just around the air conditioner is extremely cold and it cools down her apartment really quickly when she turns it on high for a while. Then she just switches it a low fan setting and it will keep her room at the desired temperature. Although it does make some noise, it is not too loud and it does not bother her.

Intruder in the Middle of the Night

     Early this morning, we were woken up by a loud noise in the kitchen. It was around 5 in the morning and we were pretty sure it wasn't the kids as they normally do not wake up this early. We took a peep and found them still sleeping in their rooms. My husband immediately went downstairs to check. I told him that he should grabbed one of our best kitchen knive as a weapon should there be any armed intruders.

     Meanwhile, I waited upstairs waiting for any instructions from my husband. I was picturing all kinds of scenarios and mentally preparing what to do, like using the vase to defend myself and hitting them with the table lamp I have at the corridor.  

     Yes, I have a wild imagination, as a result of too much TV I think. There was silence downstairs and my heart was beating really fast. Suddenly, I heard my husband shouting to me that it was all clear. Apparently it was our cat who had jumped up to the table looking for breakfast and had accidentally knocked down the bowl of fruits!
