Raffles and the Singapore Sling

For those of you who were worried about my health, following the publication of the worst photo of me in the world, I just wanted you to know that I survived my near heart attack. My return to health was greatly helped when I was taken to the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel to have a Singapore Sling by a friend.

What has struck me about Singapore is the way it has thrown itself into Christmas. The decorations rival those in London - they are absolutely beautiful. In a way, that really surprises me because I have this naive view that Asia has resisted western commercialism. That clearly isn't true in Singapore.
