Was having a very bad headache last night. Couldn't do much but to rest as soon as I reached home.

Felt better when I woke up this morning.

Work was super hectic though, had to do unpack and repackaging, couldn't even finish it at the end of the day.

Aside from the residing hair, I don't think I inherited any of my dad's traits. I'm definitely awful at haggling. Wanted to max my budget for the audio of animation at $800, but ended up might be paying $900.

Oh well, at least now that that's settled, i have 1 thing less to worry about.

Felt super choked with my animation projects.
And I realised my temper turned really bad while rushing my animation.
I barely can contain my rage when my mom keep asking me to sleep early.
"Can't you see I'm rushing my project!?" I thought.
Had to shove in the "I know you said it for my own good" thought to calm myself.

Salary just came in, which is good.
Had to repay all the owed debt, which is bad.
I barely had enough for myself this month.
I think it's just enough for my transportation.

Oh, speaking of money, I finally finished my 7-eleven project a month ago!
Just that the money has yet been received.
Had to say the final product wasn't really up to my satisfactory.
I hope for this Cold Storage Project to be done better.

It's quite disappointing to look up at the night sky only to find little or no stars at all. I remember going up to the roof of my house when I was little just to view the stars filling up the sky. I hope someday I would be able to go to a place without any light pollution. It doesnt matter if it's overseas. I bet the view would be amazing, imagine laying down on the ground, bathing in the warm light of the stars.

I think I went WAYYYY over my head.
3 projects within the span of 3 months, 1 of which the 1st draft is due within a week.
What the hell am i thinking?
And it is way out of my skill boundary, I had to spent time on learning even the basics of the software.

Whining aside, I have to admit, I really learnt a lot of new techniques and skills just today alone.
I have forgotten that the best way to improve yourself is do things you have never done before.

I was looking for an ideal place to do my projects, actually.
But I settled with SMU as it is air-conditioned and the most familiar place to me.

Well, back to work.

Truth be told, I'm feeling terribly down in the dumps right now, but I'm drowning it all with PRODUCTIVITY! A moment of negativity is a moment deprived of positivity. No point focusing on the bad stuff, everything will be alright in the end, right?

All that aside, I can't believe I really did it! I finally registered my own company! I've even gotten my own Business Registration Number!

The fees involved though....

五月天 Mayday Queue Survival Guide

So I figured I should contribute my experience on how I get my Mayday Concert VIP ticket for fans to have better chance in getting future concert tickets

Mayday LIVE 人生无限公司 演唱会
December 2017

There were a lot of ticket kiosk, but the one I went to was Singapore Indoor Stadium. You could get the tickets from Singapore Post too, but during the queue I overheard from "Experienced Queuers" that their system is quite bad, and sometimes it will jam and by the time it's back online there won't be any tickets left.

It was my first time queuing for any concert ticket, and being worried of not getting a ticket, I went to check the queue 1 day before opening of VIP ticket.

VIP sales starts : 10am (Friday)
Check                : 9.30am (Thursday)
Queue                : None

Only during my second check at night that I found there are already 22 people queue-ing.

Check : 8.00pm (Thursday)
Queue : 22 People

The thing I would like to compliment is the ingenious method the fans used during the Queue to ensure order and prevent anybody from cutting the queue. Listing down the names and contact numbers on a piece of paper based on first come first serve basis. As simple as it sounds, I was really impressed. For my case, the 2nd person in the line is the one in-charge of getting everyone in the list.

One thing to take note is that overnighting is not allowed. We were chased away by security around 9.30pm (Thursday) and we ended up overnighting in a sheltered pathway in between Kallang Mall and Indoor Stadium. This is where the Name List came in handy, we know who is supposed to be where and behind who. I went to ask about the allowed queuing time and it's around daybreak, which is quite vague. Do remember to bring your Umbrella and insect repellents, sleeping bag too if you want.

The queue just got longer the next morning (Maybe 3.00am) with an approximate number of 50.

So when are we allowed to start queuing at the booth? For me, I asked the officer if we can start queuing (that is around 7am), and that's when they gave us the green light. We moved to queue near the booth and the Name List yet again came in handy.

So the queue reached around 100 at around 9:30am Friday, just 30 minutes before open sales.

By 9:58am all of us started refreshing online booking page just to try our luck in getting the tickets online. The ticket was set at $288 per ticket, so do ensure your purchase doesn't exceed the credit card limit.

IF you were to get online booking, don't worry if they indicate that there are no more seat of your choosing, as It's most probably the system being overloaded by the page request. Instead, keep trying on the number of seats you want. For me, the booking was quite a breeze as I was the few who managed to get in the system early, and I managed to temporarily book 7 seats, but as time goes by, booking large amount of seats would be a problem.

In the end, I managed to individually booked 2 tickets online and 5 from the booth.
