April snow, Festival fever

Another freaky weather change when UK was hit with snowfall on Sunday (6th). Woken up to snow falling outside the garden and a considerable blanket of it over rooftops, cars etc. Ever the happy bunny to see snow again, especially since this time round was heavier than the snowfall we experienced during Easter Sunday.

Wanted to do so many things that morning – go to the park and check out the snow covered grounds, throw snowballs around, probably build a mini snowman…….but my focus was on getting the priceless Glastonbury Festival tickets. Glastonbury is probably one of the biggest music & performing arts festival in UK. Really enjoyed my experience last year at Sarawak Rainforest Music Festival, this will be many times bigger and promises plenty of “interesting” happenings. Obviously an Event that i want to check out since I’m here in UK and before i get too old for these hippy festivals.

Ticket sales began at 9am, and the trusty laptop with both Audrey’s and my handphone were on all ready to began the challenge. And my travel companion Hema was respectively trying to get tixs from her home. Talk about being KIASU!

Was darn excited when my phone call managed to get through the ticketing office, after being met by numerous engaged responses. Sadly the lady on the other end refused to sell me the tickets because I was 10min early……..argh! And so began the next 2 hours of futile attempts to reach the ticketing webserver, which is constantly BUSY because of the heavy online traffic by eager customers and my poor thumbs working hard on my handphone to redial the engaged ticketing office number.

Despite having to leave for work that Sun morning without any success, had a gut feeling that we will successfully get the festival tickets. Maybe it was the enjoyable IPOD shuffle mix playing through the tube ride or clear crisp morning air.

I was jumping with joy when i received confirmation 1/2 hr later when i disembarked from my tube stop at work. SMS from Hema – we managed to get tixs for GLASTONBURY!!!

Can’t wait for summer to come round – so many places and things to do, so little time ahead.

    err, that came off sounding worse than intended *sheepish grin* naa, Pel n i decided we’d rather hike 9G than return for Rainforest fest. may go for WOMAD but couldn’t mk it for Genting jazz fest as (1) no one wanted to go with me, and (2) i had to go up to Penang for Cheng Beng.

    so wat’s on your playlist?
