SINGAPORE - So you find yourself wanting to move closer to the Arctic Circle? Do you let out an involuntary sigh when you stand close to the chiller section at the supermarket? If this sweltering season has you down, you do not have to go gently into the boiling night. There are portable devices to make you feel cooler or at least feel less like a bao in a steamer basket.
