同意楼上jhdonline,
“热气”是粤语中的“上火”
TCM里的“火”翻译为internal heat是约定俗成的了。
我是新人,在此向前辈们问声好

Hi Ron

Just a joke. Don't take above seriously as I was trying to make out the literal translation from Chinese.

I am not good with my Mandarin although I must say it will not be easy to tran ...



Thanks ! That's good for us.
But obviously, it doesn't mean angry here.
