Medical stuff

Not sure how this is going to pan out, but I fly to Singapore tonight for medical treatment on my ever-worsening skin infection. I hope to continue my daily blogging but we'll have to see how things shape up. Keep your fingers crossed. I will have to miss Denise Heywood's talk at Monument Books tonight (bugger and damn) and also next Saturday's (14 March) film showing of Out of the Poison Tree at Meta House looks unlikely too. However, this infection has been going on too long, all tests have proved inconclusive and I need to get it sorted pronto as my face and body look like a train-wreck. It ain't a pretty sight. Wish me luck.

Postscript: I'm still kicking myself that I had to miss Denise Heywood's talk tonight at Monument. Someone please put me out of my misery and tell me it was wonderful... We'd been planning this event for months and on the day it happens I have to leave the country. Typical! As it was, I boarded my plane to Singapore as Denise began her slideshow and eventually got to my hotel in the Little India district of Singapore at 10.30pm, in the middle of a thunder shower. Everything went like clockwork including the MRT train ride from the airport to just around the corner from my hotel, so maybe that's an omen for the rest of my trip. I have an appointment with the skin man at 10am tomorrow morning. I am tempted to post a picture of myself I took this morning but I might lose the few people that actually read this blog, so I won't.

Hey not just the coin, but the hot cups as well, and don't eat chicken and seafood, and this and that, I've heard it all. Unfortunately nothing has worked so far. I'm sick of staying here and getting no further forward, hence my flight to Singapore tonight. Hopefully a specialist over there can find the problem and give me the cure. I have a 10am appointment tomorrow morning.
