DJ Snake

Not my style, left within 30 mins. When I was going through the exit, seemed like there were a lot of people who had the same sentiments

Day 2 : Afrojack

afrojack

Kinda weird style where his music has no drop. And went silent before the next.

Day 2 : Above and Beyond

above and beyond

Lots of people leaving when the supposedly finale was playing, 3 lao ah pek playing retro EDM and slow songs. Was surprisingly good for me. I kinda enjoyed it. But left earlier as my friend did not really like this.

My ranking for this Ultra 2018 is like this.

  1. Steve Angello
  2. Above and beyond
  3. Nicky Romero
  4. Afrojack
  5. DJ Snake

You learn something new everyday.

  • Ranking means nothing if the style doesn’t suit you. 

– You might be book smart throughout in life, however if you do not do something which is 2nd nature to you in life when you grow up, no matter how good your scores, and papers are, you are susceptible to failure eventually as time will slowly wear you down.

  • What you like, your friends might not like thus if you are out having a night out with other people, you often might need to compromise.

– If you are super stubborn and cannot compromise, its best you go solo whenever you do anything, so you won’t spoil the night.

  • Steve Angello should be out there with the top 50s since he is 1/3 of the swedish house mafia, somehow he dropped 52 places to 82 however he still rocks.

-Form is temporary, class is always permanent.

Apologies

Apologies are simple if you are not sincere
Hard if you want to be sincere
Extremely hard if you want to be authentic

Long Vacation

Binged watched Long vacation during the last 2 days.

long vacation

Story is about Japan in 1996 where most people are not having stable jobs and doing part time jobs. People supported each other emotionally as all the lives were tough. Somehow somewhere along the line we have forgotten that life was supposed to be tough, and blame all sorts of things, from people up til jobs, etc……

lesser but happier

We have somehow forgotten how to live in the moment, probably due to how connected we are. The next time you wish to look at the world through a black screen, remember humans are not born to communicate with the world through a screen.

Anyway after 20 plus years, this is how she looks like now. Can you believe she is 50 plus? She has aged damn well. 🙂

How I self sabotaged myself in 2017

By not setting boundaries.

Learn how you can setup your own boundaries in life. Because people will be pushing you to test you on what is your limit.

People WILL test, push and disrespect your limits. You’ll know you’re getting healthier when this doesn’t get an emotional reaction out of you. When your boundaries are your core beliefs, you will not get riled up if you are tested.

Lessons from ZW

Lessons from ZW
There’s this guy whom I have known for around 19 years. In the recent years got back to meeting him due to weekly basketball games. He is a quiet person who does not speak much, however if you really observe him, there are tons of life lessons which I have learnt from him.

Lesson 1 : Treat life as a marathon and not a 100m race.

He is a damn good basketball player and he knows it as well. However when he plays with us, he usually tones down his game such that he won’t be owning us. I believe that he understands the fact that energy is an expensive commodity and he treats each session as a marathon, and not a 100m race.

Lesson 2 : Be prepared like batman

I assume his style would be changing as soon as the players get more skilled. He reads the game very well and adapts to the growing difficulty level. Much like Bitcoin lol. He is prepared for any difficulty level in the realm of basketball, however does not overcompensate and uses just neccesary energy to tackle each one of them.

Lesson 3 : When you help people without requiring anything else in return, that’s the higest form of giving

Because of lesson 2, he adapts his difficulty level to help to challenge you such that you can grow in the realm of basketball. However he does so without wanting anything else in return which is truly applaudable.

If you have a friend like ZW, you know you have a good life.
