Singaporean Things That Just Don't Make Sense - Part Two of Infinity

Singapore is located one degree north of the equator. Commonsense therefore indicates that Singapore is a very very hot place to be in throughout the year. Even if her citizens do not know the geographical location of Singapore, I'm 101% sure that everyone can FEEL the heat and humidity. Okay... perhaps we give and take 2-4 degrees of fluctuation in overall daily temperatures. We still have an average of 32 C all year round.

Perspiration (sweating) is the daily name of the game for everyone.

What am I trying to get at?

I want to find out who is the idiot who introduced long sleeve businesswear for men in Singapore. It is totally senseless!

I admit that I'm also a sucker conformist who's got to wear long sleeved business shirts to work especially when I have to attend meetings.

It's really dumb. Seriously.

Can someone influential start wearing something more appropriate to suit the climate? Someone please make a statement so idiot Singaporeans (including me) will obediently follow. Better still, can someone in government make it a law that hefty fines will be imposed on whoever is caught wearing anything more than elbow-length shirts with 1mm thick material?

heh if someone starts this, then the gahmen will probably start up a board or something to discuss this, and nothing will be done till 10 years later
