In Malaysia, the weather is hot and humid. There are a lot of flies. Food covers are made of beautiful lace nettings. This provides ventilation and prevents flies from getting into the food. Sometimes the flies zoom in and land on the cover.

Babies sleep in hammocks. When I was a baby, I slept in one made of sarong fabric which can't breathe and it was very hot. Now, this baby has one that is made of netting. She must be a happy baby. The hammock is attached to five springs. If the baby stirs before she is due to wake up, the carer moves the spring gently. When the baby grows older, she will move the hammock herself. They even have an electric motor to shake the hammock at set intervals. I was at a Malaysian restaurant when I saw one.

The disadvantage of sleeping in a hammock is you get a a flat head which the hairdressers call an Asian head. I have such a head.
