I’m sick, grumpy and I need some sleep…

Sitting in the Quantas lounge at Singapore airport, waiting for my flight back to London. A tough but great week of work has ended on a bit of a sour note. I think I have food poisoning… I’ve been battling a combination of “the sweats”…

That’s better…

A sleep update from Singapore: I managed to get more sleep last night…a lot more. I was unconscious by 8:30pm and didn’t wake up until 4:50am. Epic, uninterrupted sleep. Save for some bizarre dreams about changing career to become a stage magician. Just couldn’t keep…

Bleurgh….

In Singapore… finally asleep just after midnight, woken up by thumping bass just before 3am. I have been awake ever since. The bass was coming from a nightclub across the street. A quick Google search confirmed it was going to be open until 5am. The…

Business class buddies

I’m writing this 11 hours and 40minutes into my flight from London to Singapore. We’re about to land but I wanted to capture this while it was still fresh in my mind.  I was actually looking forward to this flight. I thought I had it…

Up, up and away

Sitting in Heathrow T5 – the British Airways lounge, to be exact – waiting for my flight to Singapore. I don’t mean to brag, but I think I might be finally getting the hang of these long-haul jaunts. I used my usual Evernote packing list (don’t…

In a state of flux…

I flew back from Miami (which was fantastic – already planning a return to South Beach) overnight last Friday night  Saturday morning. Via New York. And ever since, I’ve been suffering with a combination of jet lag and pretty intense insomnia. Yes, my old friend…

A pretty standard night in South Beach

So….we spent last week in South Beach and had a pretty chilled-out time. Lots of beach laziness, eating and drinking. But then, on the Tuesday night, we stumbled upon South Beach’s best gay bar – The Palace – and left feeling sore from laughing. Three…

Apple Watch: now I’m really impressed

Two things that have blown me away in the past week: You can not only check your email via the Apple Watch, but also process your inbox by deleting unwanted crap right from the watch interface. Those spare five minutes here and there can really…

Apple Watch: a few weeks in…

I’ve been using my new Apple Watch daily for a few weeks now, so I thought it would be useful to reflect how it’s been going. In case anyone out there is still wondering what it’s like to use outside of an Apple Store. If you can’t…

San Andreas: Two hours of collapsing buildings

I went to see San Andreas last night – not expecting cinematic brilliance – but was still shocked at just how bad it was. (Some spoilers below…) Now I’ve sat through some really awful films in a cinema in my time. I just can’t bring…
