Argh, the typhoon got me …

I think SIBOS is jinxed.

In 2001, 9/11 happened just as we all planned to go to Singapore and the show was cancelled.

In 2008, Lehman Brothers collapsed the day the show started and so we spent the week trying to get over it (what's new, some said).

In 2009, the hand of God intervenes and decides to close down on Hong Kong.

As I get back to my hotel room tonight, I'm greeted by this letter (click to enlarge):

UPDATE: we're all ok folks!
