I spent about three weeks in Singapore last year, making the Albert Court Hotel my second home. When I wasn't out sampling the food, I savored the rare joys of a real bath, a real bed - and the company therein.

Every night I would fall asleep to the Mandarin channel, eventually finding myself hooked on a Chinese historical drama - Xiao Zhuang Epic. It was a Macbeth-meets-Hero, political-intrigue story. Lots of secrets, backstabbing and star-crossed romances.

We sailed out of Singapore with probably eight episodes left in the series. I knew I'd never get to finish it.
