Flew Hanoi to Singapore today, never seen so many masks and they are pretty popular normally.

Had to fill in a form on hotel check-in, countries visited, symptoms etc THEN they took our temperature!

I've been saying this for years, commercial properties are not an asset, they are a liability.

Debenhams will begin a make-or-break year with 19 store closures this month that will result in 660 job losses on the UKs fragile high streets.

Quality is bordering on excellent at the right hospital, Singapore is world class and a 3 hour flight away.

Only contact I have had was pre-wedding. You need a compulsory "check you not crazy" visit with a doctor. We added on a bunch of blood tests, heart check, blood pressure, chest x-ray and lots more I can't remember. Was around 5 hours in total. $100.

The hospitals catering for the locals won't meet your needs. Had a friend whose wife gave birth, was 3 in a bed!

Swarming drones play the James Bond theme. Genuinely terrifying.

>Been on a new thing - very slow running

When I was seriously boxing training I don't think it was the brutal workouts that increased my fitness level the most, pain threshold for sure. The biggest bump I saw was from 45 min brisk walks on the treadmill, 5% incline, touch under 4 mph. Heart rate likely around the 110 mark although generally my heart rate seems to be less than the norm.

From memory Lyle McDonald notes that for a lot of elite athletes hard training is a very small part of their total.

>And I think that is a real rub.... affordability.

I hear you but in Vietnam chicken is more expensive than the UK. They have a more rounded diet including many non-animal sources of protein which are usually super cheap.

If I was being harsh I would say it's less a question of affordability and more one of convenience in the west.

>...you just know how to deep search.

To be honest, and I have no understanding why, but many "intelligent" people can't even just search never-mind filter the information.
