FADE IN:

INT. SITTING - NIGHT

As he puts a suit inside a baggage, PETER sees a small box of sticky bandages in an interior shelf.

PETER (V.O.)

My activities in Beiing

would be confined in

a 5-star hotel. I don't

think I'd need them.

Anyway...

END MONTAGE

INT. HOTEL ROOM - DAY

Luxurious and stylish.

PETER (V.O.)

Having appraised the latest

challenges, I've cooked up

the strategic way ahead. My

mission is accomplished.

Peter takes a nap in a big bed.

INT. HOTEL LOBBY - DAY

Coming down from a lift, Peter is greeted by Gentleman#1.

PETER

Where're we going for

dinner?

GENTLEMAN#1

Oh, they want to take

you to a special place.

Before we go, let me

show you the very nice

hotel garden here!

EXT. HOTEL GARDEN - DAY

Traditional structures with modern fittings. Peter sees STAFF setting a spot for an out-door wedding party.

PETER

Very nice indeed!

After taking a photo of the scene, Peter stumbles upon a low-lying hard fixture near the garden path.

PETER

(Screaming a little)

Wow!

GENTLEMAN#1

Are you OK?

PETER

I believe so.

PETER

(V.O.)

It's quite painful.

GENTLEMAN#1

There's something

wrong with the garden

design.

Checking his pain point, Peter notices blood stains in his white trousers. He uplifts his trousers to take a close look of the cut.

PETER

No wonder. Part of

the skin has been

peeled off...

INT. CONCIERGE - DAY

Gentleman#1 gets some first-aid items and helps Peter apply them on his cut. He then puts a bandage on it.

PETER (V.O)

I've got a small box

of the sticky bandages

in my baggage. I

couldn't foresee I'd

sustain the cut inside

a 5-star hotel!

EXT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT

Traditional royal structures. STAFF in royal outfits. Peter and Gentlemen #1-4 arrive and walk inside.

PETER

This place looks like a

mini-Summer Palace.

Staff engaging us as if

we're royalties.

Gentleman#3 does the order.

PETER

Don't order too much...

A beat.

PETER

Another dish again?

GENTLEMAN#3

For kingly meals, there're

over 80 dishes.

GENTLEMAN#2

Only a bit in each dish

is consumed and some are served for their looks

only.

PETER

What a waste!

GENTLEMAN#3

The restaurant targets

tourists and so everything

here is pricy...

As Peter nods, five dishes of desserts are served.

GENTLEMAN#3

I want you to try various

kinds of Beijing delicacies.

PETER (V.O.)

They give me a lot of

face. Apart from looking

at them, I'd try a bit of

them.

The other gentlemen don't take any of the desserts.

INT. HOTEL ROOM TOILET - DAY

PETER (V.O.)

My stomach and intestines

are complaining...

INT. HOTEL RECEPTION - DAY

Peter checks out.

PETER

Where's the toilet?

A STAFF shows him the way.

INT. AIRCRAFT - DAY

Gentleman#1 sits next to Peter.

PETER

Are your stomach and

intestines OK? I've a

stomach flu.

Gentleman#1 nods.

GENTLEMAN#1

It might be because of

the desserts you

consumed. They weren't

hot from the kitchen.

PETER (V.O.)

Probably...

A beat.

Getting out from the toilet, Peter returns to his seat. Before he sits down, he quickly returns to the toilet again.

PETER (V.O.)

Well, my diarrhoea is getting serious.

INT. SLEEPING ROOM

Peter looks tired in bed.

PETER (V.O.)

I'm so glad that the

toilet is just a couple

of steps away. Except

from resting, I'm not

in the mood to do

anything. Health is

really important.

INT. SITTING ROOM

Facetime. Peter speaks to his younger SON in the screen.

PETER

I've got gastro...

SON

Gastroenteritis.

PETER

(Showing the cut)

I've also got a cut in a

5-star hotel garden too...

Peter's WIFE notices Peter's bandaged leg.

WIFE

Let me change the

bandage for you..

FADE OUT. End
