I arrived in Shanghai this morning, and still feel a bit jetlagged. Because this is the last week before Chinese New Year there is quite a lot of things to do, and I went from the plane almost straight to the office. Normally that’s the best way to overcome jetlag (in my experience), but today it’s not working. I have a splitting headache, and it’s hard to keep my eyes open. Maybe the fact that I only slept 4-5 hours per night during my trip also plays a role.

I just did a TV interview, and I think I was blinking my eyes every second or so because I was so tired. It was an interesting interview, the TV station (Shanxi Satellite) was doing a program about Gary, and they interviewed me about Gary’s habits, how difficult it is to work with a friend etc. I kept it positive Gary 🙂

Tonight Spill Group Asia and Zlong Games have their annual New Year Party in a Sichuan restaurant on Guangyuan Lu. After that I plan to meet for drinks with business guests, so I don’t think I will be in bed early tonight…
