Here are the 3 best cold weather advice that I have received, on how to adjust to Canada's cold weather.
Firstly from CK on Thursday, May 13, 2010 8:49:00 PM,
"Lather yourself with LOTS of moisturizer during the cold and dry months."
From my elder sister when I was collecting luggage bags from her back in end-September 2010,
"Keep your head and neck covered and warm. Always wear a hat and a scarf, you'll feel warm that way."
From an acquaintance (who is my younger sister's colleague's aunt), a Singaporean living in Canada for decades, (as she chatted with me over the phone around Nov/Dec-2010 on the traditional Chinese health-system)
"People assume that in the cold weather they should it more heaty food to keep warm. In fact, the reverse is true. During cold weather, a lot of people fall sick because when exposed to the cold, the body goes into an overdrive to compensate, and thus becomes too heaty. Therefore, it is important to eat cooling foods in winter to maintain good health. Drink lots of 凉茶 [cooling tea]！"
This post is for folks like KC and his wife who will be landing in Canada soon. [Note: January is still the winter period.] Welcome and I hope you'll find the above advice useful too.
