There is a Japanese restaurant in Tesco's where you cook your food 'Sukiyaki' in front of you in a pot of boiling water. We chose the high quality meat and waited with anticipation.
"Not up to much" was my comment to my beautiful wife Chuen -
"uninteresting and a hassle to cook". She loved it!

After a night of diarrhea that did not subside a visit to Phuket International Hospital was called for. Here I was taken into the side room and put on a standard drip with antibiotics.
