Well, I've been drafting this post for almost a week. Keep updating it whenever the ideas comes and keep thinking about it again and again till it's ready to go online. Probably it's my style where I love to think based on the events thats happening around me and mixed with my arrogance and ego, it ends up as a nice piece of thought that you might or might not have thought about it. It's chilling off. In this piece, you will find my arrogance side as well as the logic side of it. Be your own judge.
Have you ever thought that sometimes something that we are doing either its for fun or not is necessary to balance our emotions? That's what chilling off is about. Every single of us needs to chill off either we enjoy doing or realise about it or not is different story. Let me give an example which I believe most of us aware of. Akademi Fantasia. It's a big thing here in Malaysia as it's similar to American idols to Americans. What's about it? It's about watching it.
Most Malaysian loves to watch it and the producer made millions from last season's show. What does it got to do with chilling off? Well, we need to set our mind that we are actually watching it to chill off and that's all. Not to participate in it. By sending SMSes to the program, we are actually starting to participate in it and moving from chilling off to the next level and thats not good. We are supposed to watch it and forget about it in the next hour or so, not watching it, participating in it and keep having it in our mind.
Okie, another example. Have you ever heard of Harian Metro? Well, I believe most Malaysian knows Harian Metro. Do you know what I think of Harian Metro? It's degrading. I even once set in my mind that by reading Harian Metro, it actually lowers my IQ. Seriously and I even look at people who's reading Harian Metro is actually who have nothing much to achieve in their life except just keep it sail and die. A piece of journalism work(well, thats what they want it to be known) thats made up from imaginations and useless information. Why do they need to have Harian Metro when they already have Berita Harian? So that they can differentiate between journalists and fiction writers. Is it ok to read it? From my opinion, yeah it is. Everybody needs to chill off and if that is your stuff, then read it but as my above example do not take it seriously. When chilling off, you are supposed to forget about it after a while and not becoming avid fan of it.
Opportunist are actually making most money from people who are gullible and stupid. People who are less gullible and aware of the situation that they are currently into wont be spending money much to chill off but actually will be thinking how to make best out of it. Keeping the chilling off level on sight and live the life! Let's look at another example and here im discussing about my own obsession. I love fast cars and by being a fanatic of it, they would be lots of money involved. So, where is chilling off level and when I shouldnt go above it? I almost got myself a second hand Fiat Coupe somewhere last year. For 30 grands cash, I can just hand over the money and drive the machine off straight away. Why didnt i get it? I as well not really sure why. The car looked nice, the power is there, the look is there but somehow i was having problem handling that guy 30 grand cash. Actually my sense of realism just kicked inside my head and telling me DON'T!!!!. Now, with some money somewhere on the horizon, i was thinking of getting a fast machine. Something that i could drive by the weekend and hitting somewhere around 200 to 230 km/h on the highway. Where would this last? All the upgrades, maintenances (have u ever heard of Engine Oil that gonna cost you almost 400 bucks? yeah.. try asking TRUST for it) and petrol. Where would it end? I believe the chilling off level on this example lies on how much do we earn every month, not how much do we have. So, never look down at people who owns Ferrari for an example as somebody who's gullible. He/she might be earning 5 years of your salary every month :). So, i've been thinking instead, why dont I get another house? I've been longing for a semi D house for sometime that's gonna cost me around 700K. Why dont i put my downpayment of my sport car for my semi D house instead and own a new house? What do you think?
Summary, chilling off is good. I'm not gonna tell you which TYPE of chilling off suits you and either its good or not.You name it, recreational drug, alcohol, partying, fast driving, reading, playing game, watching movie / show, listening to music or even complaining about other people!!!! are among the chilling offs that most of us do and by not overdoing it, we are actually balancing our emotions and minds to make us think straight. By overdoing it, we are making ourself as a victim of opportunists. Oh, that might be your 'chilling off' :)
My princess has a chilling off that actually makes money rather than making her looses money instead. I'll tell you later about it. So, what are your chilling offs? Are you loosing money or making money from it?
Below are the songs that bring back memories to me few days ago. Ken Follet, Dex Design, Vision Street Wear, Gullwing, spitfire, GQ and Powell Peralta To name a few. Enjoy!!!
Some pics to share with readers of what i had snapped few days back

Mother's love :D :D
Well, life had been fun so far even though my last month's salary was SUPER late. Just received a call from my mom that my check just arrived today. Phew.... credit cards... bills... all end up paying late this month(for last month). Anyway i'm still lucky that i received it at the end. On the other hand, me and my princess had been having wonderful time together. We went to Morib, Wet World and recently we went to Tanjung Harapan, Klang and end up having seafood for dinner at Muara with my mom. Was a nice evening, no rain and we had prawns, crabs and fish!. Superb dinner and was full till the next day :D
On the other hand, Azman is coming down for a while from Australia and I pesan him to get myself a new laptop bag (and this is a surprise. Different from my usual 'look'!!!) and a pressie for my princess which as well a surprise :D :D
2008 has started nicely for me so far and I'M LOVING IT!!!! (trademark; McDonalds). Enjoy the pics which i snapped few weeks ago and lazy to upload till today.
Well, it took me a good 8 days to write something. Not that i'm busy but, just end up getting lazy by day. Coming back home tired, don't feel like turning on laptop at all. Dinner, being mushy with my Princess for a while and then.. off to sleep.
New job is good. The location is Damansara and starts at 9 every morning. So, on the way to office, i end up having breakfast with my Princess in PJ. Pak thor for about an hour before heading to work. The environment is good, everybody are just as innocent as me when i was 6 years old and below (after that i started stealing my sis's money) :D :D So, good on me. Very good start for 2008.
