Been wanting to blog about this for a long time. The situation is getting worse now. We need new legislation to stop scalpers.
For the uninitiated, a scrapler is someone who purchase large quantity of an item with the sole intention of reselling them at a much higher price. The most recent case is the BTS concert where scraplers are reselling the tickets at up to $4000 when the original price is just $348.
Something needs to be done to stop this. Firstly, these scraplers are buying up all the available tickets to create a shortage of supply. Then they mark up the prices based on the demand.
Scalpers are getting more common nowadays. And they don’t just buy and resell tickets. Even smartphones and LEGO are not spared. And with the help of online marketplace, it is getting easier for scalpers to resell the item.
Scalpers need to be stopped. New legislation need to be in place to stop people from profitting from reselling an item excessively. I’m fine if the resold price is 20% to 30% more expensive than the usual price. But things are getting out of hand nowadays.
Everyone need to work together to stop scalpers. Talk to your MP. Ask them to push for new bill in Paraliment to stop scalping. Online market place admins need to ban people from profitting excessively from reselling an item. Concert organisers should implement features to prevent tickets from being resold. For example, the Ed Sheeran concert tickets will have the buyer’s name printed on it to prevent resale.
The rest of us need to stop buying things from scalpers. Let them hang on to the item forever without finding a buyer. If everyone corporates and stop buying from scalpers, then the scraping will stop eventually.

I’m still alive. I know I haven’t been updating my blog as regularly. I even missed an update on my birthday. That’s something unusual.
So here to belated 37.
Been busy. Super busy. Most people assume that I’m busy cause there’s someone new in my life. But that’s not the only reason. For some weird reason, I’m placed in charge of a project at work and the launch date was just 2 days after my birthday. Epic. So been busy preparing for that project for the past 2 months plus. In fact, I’m still busy with the project now.
So that’s life. Busy with work and dating. Haven’t found time for other stuff. Been missing my photography. Haven’t got a chance to bring my foldable bike out for a ride. Been wanting to go back to swimming but haven’t found the time. So many things need to be done, so little time.

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true…..

As I grow older, I find myself beginning to worry. Worry that I might not have enough time left in this life to do the rest of the things that I wanted to do. Am I worrying too much or is this normal for someone at a certain age? I wonder.
If only someone told us that life is short when we were young. Come to think of it, they did told us life is short since the beginning. Its just that we didn’t realised that it is that short until it is too late.
So a very belated cheers to 37. Don’t know if I’ll get another 37 years in this life. But let’s hope its not too late to do the things that I want to do.

五月天 – 瘋狂世界

想了你一整夜 再也想不起你的脸
你是一种感觉 写在夏夜晚风里面
青春是挽不回的水 转眼消失在指尖
用力的浪费 再用力的后悔
