Tell me what you think

My time in Singapore has been rather unsettled. After my first day's meetings we went for dinner at the restaurant on the roof of the Sands Casino and Hotel.
Though the view was great, the food was destined to stay with me for longer than anticipated. From about 2 hours after eating (11:30pm) things went something like this.........
Food poisoning is never fun.
Its really grim alone in a hotel room.
It wasn't until the next day when my colleague brought me Imodium, charcoal and Gatoraid that things began to settle down.
Last night I had a bowl of tomato soup and a scoop of ice cream......no trips to the toilet.
I still had some bizarre dreams.
Though I woke up this morning a bit weak and waxen, I'm good to go for the overnight flight to the UK.
Singapore is the last place I would have expected to have gotten a food bug, but as a colleague also had a similar difficulty, that's got to be where it happened.
I spend the majority of my life on the road for my job and this little travelogue fulfils two purposes:
It lets me document the little vignettes which unroll all around you if you take the time to pay attention. It also lets me live under the illusion that my job doesn't dictate every aspect of my life.
