In My Life is my most favorite Beatle’s song … and everytime in hotel when I see the following TV advertisement (of a real estate development company) on CNN channel, I will stop everything I am doing and watch it … In fact, many times, it’s the only “entertainment” I have during business trips.
The beautiful voice is from famous actor Sean Connery, what a loving and engaging voice … and here is the full version of his voice over advertisement with some pictures.
I learnt one thing from the Sevens weekend – that is, our city has all the expertises to run any big sport events … as long as our city government don’t get involved. Go figure …
What a great show by Rod Stewart !!
The RodFather is in town for one night only and you really have to be there to feel his energy. One really touching moment was when we all sang together the song “You’re in my heart”. In fact, the fans could not stop but kept singing the same song in the subway car back home. What a night !!
Enjoy (a video from previous Rod Stewart concert) !!

One of the first things to do in my Boston travel planning is to get tickets for the Blue Man Show (one of the best multi-media shows in USA). To promote e-Commerce, I of course first visited their official ticket site – www.ticketmaster.com to buy tickets. Unfortunately, all tickets were sold out for all the days I’d stay in Boston, according to the website.
So, I tried the other way – S-Commerce (i.e. Scalper Commerce). That is, somehow another party got the tickets and willing to sell it to yet another party – with a higher price tag. I checked the site www.ticketsnow.com and found that I could get the tickets but the original US$ 58 tickets (for a seat 10 rows from the stage) were selling at US$ 148. Toooo expensive I think …
Therefore, I decided to leave it to the last resort – C-Commerce (i.e. Concierge Commerce). I checked into the hotel and immediately asked the concierge for help … and the gentleman kindly promised to help and get me the ticket. The next day the gentleman told me the good news – ticket with seat 5 rows from the stage and it cost only US$ 58 plus US$ 5 handling fee (i.e. together US$ 63 a ticket, which I was very happy to pay for the services).
Lesson learnt – Ticketing websites still cannot replace a good concierge.
