15 March 2012


Well, well, well. Here I am 35,000 feet above the ground again. My laptop started to go crazy again but luckily it's working now.
So I was in Singapore yesterday enjoying a set at Comedy Masala and I was not only blown away by the fact that the house was full with 200+ people on a Tuesday night, but the amount the local comedians have upped their game! It's great coming back here because the audiences are ready to have a great time and I've gotten used to the place. I know the drill and I'm familiar with the whereabouts anyway.

The only thing I really hate about going abroad is loose change. This is one time I wish items cost more (well rounded up more like) and since it takes my brain a bit of time to convert the currency, my "cheapness" doesn't kick in until after I spent the money, which explains why I could spend almost S$3 for a crappy McDonald's Milo McFlurry…ahaha that was a mistake

So it was a great gig last night and I felt more comfortable working the room, now that I've been there a few times and have a better idea of the culture and people. Also, the flight, for some reason, didn't seem that long…I'm basically 1 hour into this 3:30hr flight and well, so far so good.

The last few days have been a real challenge of my willpower because I'm back to the horrible "too-much-work-not-enough-time" state because projects have just collided together. I've also been doing a lot of thinking and planning for the future because I've seriously got to better handle projects so I don't keep finding myself in the over-time slump.

I've been listening to the Audio Book version of Guy Kawasaki's - Enchantment. It's a pretty good book, not as good as The Art of the Start, but still interesting ideas, it applies to everything I do, my comedy, my web design, etc. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to find better ways of convincing people to listen to their ideas (provided you have good ideas). The book convinced my heart to talk to my brain and better figure things out. Basically my emotions had a chat with logic and that's why I'm working at trying to come to an agreement. My emotions want to stop being so aggressive and enjoy life a bit more. Take on a few less projects and just live a bit more. My logic says I need to strike the iron while it's hot, even if it seems to never cool down. I suppose it boils down to a balance. For example, I decided to completely flush my reading list and start over. Things were never going to get read and the list lost its purpose. I hated the idea that I was throwing away articles and information I knew were useful or interesting to me, but I suppose if I was never going to end up reading them anyway, then there's no difference.

March is scheduled to be a jam-packed month for me and I'm hoping April gives me some space to work out more ideas and plans for the journey ahead. The next 10 days are going to prove to be exhausting but hopefully once I get past this bump, it'll be encouraging (it always is!).

So have fun and enjoy the end of the 25% of 2012! We're still here, yay!

(Update: Of course this was posted at a later time :P)
