Response from Jilea:

Thanks for your feedback Suen and Alan. During your stay I encouraged you to let me know if you wanted the central heating on and several times asked you if you were warm enough. On each occasion you said the electric blankets and room heater were sufficient. I was surprised as Katoomba is cold for Singaporeans and that is the reason I kept asking you if you wanted the heating on. Each time the answer was no. With regard to the hot water, I have instantaneous, on demand, continuous gas hot water which is very reliable. I think what happened was that you didn't turn the hot water tap on enough to trigger the continual heat. If you don't do that, yes the water can run cold. Again, had you told me there was a problem, I would have been able to help you and tell you that the solution is simple, just turn the tap on harder. The hot water does take 40 seconds to heat up, but after that, it is always constantly hot. I will always respond to any problems my guests have, but I do need to know that there is a problem in the first place! I was glad to be able to show you the valley full of mist on your last day, such a beautiful and unusual sight for many overseas visitors.
