德累斯顿@Dresden,Germany

德累斯顿,Dresden是一个小镇。
也是一个慢慢比较多人会到那里逛逛的地方了。
觉得旧城区还不错的。
但在那边安排那几天要走Dresden的时候,就遍遍下雨,真的没什么走到Dresden。
下雨,而是下大雨起大风,雨伞都坏了,而且冷到半命。
只有第一天到时,天气比较好些。

第一天,睡了午觉,傍晚5点多步行到新城区走走和吃晚餐。
号特别的设计。

然后,坐Tram到旧城区。
Tram,在Apartment外面就可乘搭,很方便。
(Tram ticket in Dresden is euro2/trip or in 1 hr)

一个人搭飞机

好久没一个人搭飞机了。
那天,卫塞节的前一个晚上,一个人拉着2个行李,搭上Taxi往Changi Airport Terminal 2。
到机场,到Lufthansa Counter check in luggage后,就到里头了。
没事做就当然逛来逛去啦。。。
时间很快就到了,10pm就开始排队等候。
就是等,好无聊。。。一个人傻傻的等等等。
飞机是1105pm起飞。到Dresden应该是那边时间10am,就是这里4pm。
足足要飞16小时呀。。。包括在Frankurt transit(3小时)。

在飞机上是坐靠窗的,因为打算睡觉没人打扰吧。
但上了飞机,没这么快睡,就看一部戏 - 寒战。
看完戏就刚刚好吃飞机餐。哈哈,半夜三更还吃这么heavy的。
没法子,给了就吃咯。也刚刚好饿了。
吃饱,上完厕所后,准备睡觉。
哟,这一觉也不知睡了几小时。只知道醒来时是吃早餐了。
应该是Germany的4am,大马的10am吧。
吃饱后就准备,因为快要到Frankurt了。
心里还真的有兴奋,哈哈。

Frankurt机场,真的有点乱。
要走很长很长的路才到另外的gate。
看不懂德文,也没人可以问,真是的,就随便撞。
不知不觉到了custom,要排长长的队。
Custom的工作人员很帅但语气真的很烂,而且很严格。
嗅,终于费了半小时过关。
又是另一个等待。
等等等。。。

9am,又上飞机,要transit to Dresden咯。
Frankurt to Dresden只要1小时,所以时间很快就到了。
飞到Dresden时,整身很累。。。
出境时,远远就看到一个月没见又熟悉的身影等待了。

哈,老公,我来了;Europe,我来了。。。

Singapore Air Conditioner: Inverter or Non Inverter

装冷气需
Summary,有开多架air-con的家庭,Inverter比较便宜过Non-Inverter。
例如:
1) 如果家里只开一架Air-con,Inverter和Non-Inverter的电费是差不多一样。
2) 如果家里开2架以上的Air-con,用Inverter的电费就像用一架Air-con的电费一样。而用Non-Inverter的电费就会double-up了。
这些,在马来西亚都不会知道,因为都没听过呀。

What is Non Inverter?
The compressor and its motor are manufactured to operate at constant speed or single speed only. In simple terms, it is either in the on (Full Power) or off (No Power) mode.
Therefore for Non Inverter, you will actually feel the air conditioner blowing cold air one moment and normal wind at another.
Due to this operating principle, the electrical consumption is higher and the compressor tends to spoil more easily because of the frequent start-stop. And there is no part load capabilities.

1) Originally, Non Inverter air con uses only one big compressor linking to a few indoor units. Thus no matter how many rooms u use, you are always using the full capacity of the compressor. This is actually very inefficient. For example, the electrical consumption will be the same when using 1 room and 3 rooms.

2) But as technology improved, most of the Non Inverter air conditioners in the market are using 2 compressors. For example, a System 3 will have 1 compressor of 8500 btu and the other at 12000 btu. The 8500 btu will be connected to 1 indoor unit while the 12000 btu will be connected to 2 indoor units. Therefore when operating 1 room, you will be using only 1 compressor.
** If you are using the 2 indoor units that are connected to the 12000 btu compressor, you will only get max 6000 btu each. **

3) May it be new or old, as long as it is a Non Inverter, you will get the 'cut in' and 'cut out' of the compressor. In other words, every time the room reaches the pre-set temperature, the compressor will stop working. And when it senses an increase in temperature, it will start running again. Thus through out the night, you will experience the 'start and stop' of the compressor. In addition to that, the temperature will fluctuate as the indoor unit changes from 'COOL' to 'FAN' mode according to the 'start - stop' of the compressors.

4) Due to the frequently start-stop of the compressor, more electricity will be consumed as more power is needed to start the system all over again whenever it stopped. In addition, the compressor will also have a shorter life span.

5) Most Non Inverter Multi Split Systems have 'standard' combinations. For example, Sys 3 will be 9+9+9. When you required other combinations, you usually have to pay more as it may require a high capacity outdoor unit. And the largest indoor unit capacity for Multi Split System is 12k btu.
** For some brands, the largest can be 18k but usually it requires a higher capacity of compressor. The compressor capacity should never be smaller than the highest indoor unit capacity individual **

So why not just have the Inverter and phase out the Non Inverter?Price is the main reason. The difference can range from $600 to $800. Therefore for owners that do not have a habit of using air conditioner every night, it may be more worthwhile getting a Non Inverter air conditioner.

But do consider the following factors before making the final decision
a) the Electrical Tariffs might rise in the future.
b) your air conditioning usage might increase when your family gets more members.
c) you may be so used to sleeping in an air conditioned environment thus it becomes a habit even when it is raining outside.
d) the air conditioner might last longer than 5 years.
** These do not apply to those who have too much money and dun know where to spend **

What is an Inverter?
It is a power conversion circuit that is able to regulate the current, voltage and frequency of a device

Then what is an Inverter Air Conditioner?
This circuit board is able to vary the frequency of the motor which in turn control the revolution of the compressor. Therefore the compressor speed can be adjust to meet the cooling load necessary. And with continuous, precise and fast feedback process, changes in cooling load will be respond effectively thus minimising temperature fluctuation.

So how does an inverter saves electrical bills?This is because of its part load capabilities. After an inverter air conditioner attains the set temperature, instead of 'switching off' like a non inverter, it uses the minimum power to ensure your room is maintain at the required temperature and adjust smoothly with response to any changes in the cooling load. Overall, you use less electricity.

But an Inverter air con costs more than a Non Inverter. Then why should I get an Inverter instead of a Non Inverter?1) Because an Inverter is more energy efficient. Strictly speaking, you should calculate the 'breakeven period' or 'simple payback period'. If it falls within 5 years, then it will more economical to purchase an Inverter now.

2) When you lived in an old HDB with 8.5amp or 11amp current limit. But you want to install a System 4 for 3 bedrooms and 1 living. But a System 4 usually runs at a current of 11amp and above. According to HDB regulations, you cannot install more than 1 outdoor unit or any outdoor unit having a running ampere of more than 8.5 or 11.
Therefore the only solution is to go for an inverter with variable current settings.

3) When you want a special combination like 15K+12K+9K. Only inverter allows you to choose the indoor unit combination freely.

4) When you cannot stand the outdoor unit noise level. Go get an inverter QUICK! Inverters are generally quieter in terms of outdoor unit than Non Inverters.

5) When you do not like anything that is using older technology. Tech Savy!!!!

Summary of Inverter Air Conditioners1) Are generally of higher quality especially those using R410A refrigerant.
2) Has longer compressor life span.
3) Are very much quiet.
4) Will reduce your electrical consumption especially when using for long periods.

Terminal 21

相信到曼谷的人都会到Terminal 21一趟吧。
到Terminal 21就像到机场一样哦,也像到外国一样。

怎么去?
BTS到Asok OR MRT
Sukhumvit
设计特别,像个飞机场,而且每间洗手间都有不同的主题设计。

Day 1
27.7.2012

金马伦高原

去年看到Groupon有Equatorial Hotel的Promotion。
那时就买下来,打算带小晨葇到Cameron Highland。

29.3.2013是 Good Friday,加上星期一拿假,总共4天3夜要往Penang和Cameron Highland出发。Muar - Cameron Highland - Penang - Muar。

星期四晚上放工后就回Muar,因为是Singapore假期,Custom是多么的塞。
回到家也很夜了,收拾东西后,睡了4小时,6点早上就开车出门了。
11点到达Simpang Pulai,与家人集合,然后出发到金马伦咯。

金马伦高原,已经不冷了。
凉凉的风只有一点点。到了晚上才有那一点点的冷。

最顶不顺的一张照片。。。小晨葇骑摩托的样子。

这个小Trip有点短,有点赶。因为那时打算要回Penang弄点事情。
这2天1夜在金马伦小Trip还蛮不错的。
期待下一个跟小晨葇的旅程。
