Does your husband behave like this at home? In bed at 11 o’clock – AM, folks – watching bridge on the internet while eating dried apricots? (My fearless photographer had to be quick to get this shot…he was dummy at the time.)

GM: chess grand master
GM: chess problem solving grand master
GM: bridge grand master
QGAM: quite good at maths

Eventually he did run out of food in his bedroom, at which point the intrepid traveller could be spotted at Yum Cha in Chinatown:
