Just had a shower in the lounge at Singapore airport, and I now I feel human again. I arrived here a few hours ago and headed off to meet with Yixin, Jules and Hsien Min, wine buddies here.
We met at Thos in the Raffles hotel complex, where we sat outside in the courtyard drinking a very nice bottle of Coltibuono Sangioveto 1995. Aromatically interesting, with some firm tannins still and complex, earthy notes.
I do enjoy Singapore, and it was nice to see the place again, even if it was just for a few hours. I'm going to be back on the plane shortly.
The journey out was lovely - upper deck of a 747 with lie-flat beds. Watched two films. Revolutionary Road was brilliant but a bit depressing. Who'd have thought a film with Leonardo di Caprio and Kate Winslet could be so good? And then Frost & Nixon, which was also pretty good, although you have to work hard to get the images of these two famous people out of your mind.y
