Jay Chou Concert 2010 (2)

After struggling for hours with @princesspinky89 at sistic website again, we finally got a pair of tickets at Cat 4 ($138). It may not be the best seats or the preferred Cat (we were hoping for Cat 3!) but its definitely better than nothing.

This time round, its not @princesspinky89 that wanted to go, and instead it was me who insisted that we should watch this long anticipated concert of the year! I’m very curious about the crowd and WHY, is everyone else, so crazy about Jay’s concert.

The ticket sales this time round is still limited to OCBC card holders, so its really unfair to those people who do not own an OCBC card (finally I feel proud to own 1 now.) Still, the tickets were near sold-offs within 2 hours. There were certain point of where the website showed only single seats available in all category.

Would Jay Chou & organisers open 1 more show? The chances are low I guess, who would know a small red dot like Singapore has got so many supporters but they cant apprehend to everyones liking. Part of marketing is that if you can satisfy everyone’s demand then the next concert everyone will be expecting the same thing; i.e. they will open more and more shows to satisfy the crowd. Look from the point of a restaurant as well, if your restaurant is crowded, you can’t add in more seats and tables just because you want more sales. Also note about the comfortability of other customers and space constraints. You really cant satisfy everyone.

And for sistic, if your I.T department haven’t told you about this, its time for you to replace them. You should implement a tunnelling VPN for all your service counter and telephone service computers so that they dont get jammed up along with your web server running on IIS. And set priority on IIS to allow your intranet to book before the others, whats the point of us going to your counter/calling you and you keep telling us you share the same system as us and the web server is not responding -_-. And do some load-balancing farm for your webservers.

Now I gota bring DSLR into there and hopefully dear allow me to rent a 70-200L IS lens to bring there 😀
