a man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world albert camus rego's life quotes, rego's life, rego's life quote wednesdays, albert camus quotes, albert camus, life, thought, quotes, quote wednesdays rego's life, rego's life quotes, wisdom quotes

The question isn’t morality, or right and wrong – but a sense of understanding your fellow man, and following a basic code of ethics that evolves around that understanding. It’s this discerning point that humans are given the opportunity to utilize – a discerning point that, quite clearly, separates man from beast. Take away that, and you’ve taken away a very important part of being human.

Just a little mid-week food for thought.

Hope everyone’s doing great. 😉

Musings Episode 57: Read The Air…

Not sure if anyone’s heard this expression, slightly similar to “read between the lines.” I touched briefly on it several episodic musings ago, a little something I picked up in Asia. Thought I’d elaborate once more on it here. Enjoy.

Musings Episode 57: Read The Air…

There’s certain points in conversation where an exchange happens, and either both or one of the parties wanna say something but refrain slightly from doing so – and instead just sort of “dance” around the subject.

Personally, I prefer to talk straight (note, this does not mean “talking without thinking first”), but sometimes this type of thinking isn’t always appropriate for every single situation. This is where learning to appreciate reading the air comes in handy. Don’t get me wrong – reading the air has some serious negatives, too – but at times and in certain situations, it can be highly beneficial (business is not one of them though).

I remember my days back in uni studying International Business and Asia Pacific Studies – this was shortly after returning from Japan – they were discussing just what “reading the air” meant.

Simply put, it’s like saying something without actually saying it, but the implication’s there with as few words as possible. It’s about reading the atmosphere, and knowing what (or what not) to say next. It’s just something you’ve gotta pick up on. It’s pretty helpful because it can spare embarrassment.

So why the heck am I writing about this on a Musings Episode? It’s just one of those thoughts I had to get on paper…or computer screen, guess you could say.

It’s something that would benefit the Western culture greatly if they learned how to use it, as it teaches a person how to be tactful and not sound so presumptuous…or assinine, for that matter.

I’d say the trait is more in Americans, BUT, coming from an English background as well there’s been more than a fair share of people I’ve wanted to say “sod off” too as well.

Musings Episode 57 Read The Air, Rego's Life Musings Episode 57 Read The Air, Musings Episode 57 Read The Air Rego's Life, Rego's Life, Japanese culture, read the air, how to read the air, read between the lines, culture, thought, episodic musings, Japan
Reading the air can tie into not letting your brother turn “red in the face.” It’s a really core part of Japanese culture and something that you never fully master – some may call it “passive.” Yeah, it’s got some tendencies of “don’t rock the boat,” but really it can boil down to sparing someone’s feelings as well (hence the “red in the face” expression).

Although Chinese culture is on a whole different level (right down to the way they ask you to open a window) when it comes to indirect communication, the same way kids in primary school out here are being taught Mandarin, because this is turning into a global economy and has been one for a while now, it’d be really beneficial if the generation of today were taught key cultural “quirks” like these.

It’s not asking much either, really. The same way Western culture has its sarcasm, highly innuendo-ish humor, and cliches, picking up how to understand what someone’s saying without a plethora of words could balance the entirety of a lot of people’s social skills to say the least.

Tomorrow I’ll be elaborating on a few quick tips on exactly how to start reading the air.

Just a little Sunday food for thought. Wanna share your opinion? Comment below.

Hope everyone’s having a great morning. 😉

As always…

For The Weekenders: Breakfast, Sweets, and Sake…

This week’s been all about one thing for me: FOOD…and holy mother of Jesus…has it been good food. There’s three things you should never miss out on in life – a decent breakfast (your body will thank you), sweets that melt in your mouth (keeps you from turning into a bitter, callous person), and a bit of drink (always good for flushing your liver).

If not experiencing all three at least every week…well you’re just missing out on an important part of life. Let’s fix that void – starting now. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: Breakfast, Sweets, and Sake…

For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life, Regoslife, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Ani Japanese Restaurant, Ani Chicago, A Baker's Tale, A Baker's Tale Chicago, Plein Air Cafe, Plein Air Cafe & Eatery, Chicago Restaurants, food, lifestyle

Breakfast should be one of those things you appreciate and never miss out on…but that can be a tricky thing, more often than not for many people. If you’ve got a job or wake up early for your business, a lot of times breakfast can be neglected – which is a huge no-no. You deserve better. Your body deserves better. So head over to Plein Air Café and give your stomach what it needs (and wants).

If there’s ever a place that made a damn good breakfast, it’s Plein Air Café.

The presentation of the food is as awesome as the taste of the food itself. Conveniently located in the University of Chicago Hyde Park Campus, this is one place where you can, for lack of a better description, have that “European experience” with your breakfast…which coming from me (in being Portuguese and British) it’s really saying something (good job guys).

So this is the play, you’ve got two choices – either take your breakfast in the morning or…whenever you want really. All items on their menu are served all day – so if you missed that “11 o’ clock window” don’t sweat it – your Mascarpone Stuffed Brioche French Toast will be there waiting for you at 3.

For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life, Regoslife, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Ani Japanese Restaurant, Ani Chicago, A Baker's Tale, A Baker's Tale Chicago, Plein Air Cafe, Plein Air Cafe & Eatery, Chicago Restaurants, food, lifestyle
Like a good drink, after a good meal it’s always great to have a nice chaser. So after you’ve had a great breakfast, satisfy your sweet tooth over at A Baker’s Tale – a great spot to take that one date you’ve been trying to impress for like…weeks now.

Don’t fudge it up.

Well. You can’t, really. At least not with this place.

For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life, Regoslife, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Ani Japanese Restaurant, Ani Chicago, A Baker's Tale, A Baker's Tale Chicago, Plein Air Cafe, Plein Air Cafe & Eatery, Chicago Restaurants, food, lifestyle

The simplest way to describe A Baker’s Tale is to explain to you that it’s pretty much like walking into a story book. With “cute” little rhymes on their website and decor to back up the talk, this is the kind of place that surprisingly enough, girls will love and guys will think is pretty cool. Aesthetic enough to be pleasant and feminine, but neutral enough to feel like you didn’t step into Barbie’s playhouse (if not it just gets kind of…weird). The place is more Alice in Wonderland themed than anything – so that right there means be prepared for the “trippy” but cool.

Aside from the fact I’m into fitness, this is one of those spots where well…even I have my weaknesses. What can I say…the menu is cool, and great for those “cheat days.”

So if you end up heading here with one of those potential sweet summer flings that are “sugar conscious” – but forget the phrase even exist when they step inside a sweet shop (and they will with this one), this is your go-to spot. They don’t just do sweets either. You can take your pick from other items on their menu, like sandwiches, soups, and quiche. Let’s just not turn this into a Hansel and Gretel thing – contrary to popular belief, it’s never good to “fatten up” a date for the kill…if anything it just sounds creepy.

For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life, Regoslife, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Ani Japanese Restaurant, Ani Chicago, A Baker's Tale, A Baker's Tale Chicago, Plein Air Cafe, Plein Air Cafe & Eatery, Chicago Restaurants, food, lifestyle

You got the breakfast buzz. You got the sugar high. Now I’d say it’s about time for that drink…so head on over to Ani – a fresh little Japanese restaurant over on North Lincoln Ave., open and ready to serve you not just great sake, but Karaage chicken (among other tasty menu items as well).

For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life, Regoslife, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Breakfast Sweets and Sake, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Ani Japanese Restaurant, Ani Chicago, A Baker's Tale, A Baker's Tale Chicago, Plein Air Cafe, Plein Air Cafe & Eatery, Chicago Restaurants, food, lifestyle
Like any true, authentic Japanese eatery, Ani understands this – when you drink, you want to enjoy that drink. Savor it. Experience it’s true flavor…and of course share it with close friends – and even closer “acquaintances.” There aren’t many places that remind me of my days in J-Land but, this is one of them – and for that, I’ve gotta say ありがとう.

So here’s my suggestion:

Swing by and check out the place, then book a table for you and your friends – pick a great view where you really get a chance to look around the place (plus check out the local “scenery”).

Step outside of your comfort zone and have a go at their best brews – besides sake there’s beer and many others, so don’t be shy.

Once you’re a bit oiled up, grab some of their noodles – if you leave here without trying the noodles well…you’re just dying for a slap.

If you’re looking to keep the liquor rolling, check out their sake mussels instead. Finish it off with a good bowl of miso, another round of sake, and once you’re stuffed don’t forget to mention ごちそうさまでした to the passing waiter/waitress. You’ll be thanked with a smile.

…and if you haven’t already – for God’s sake, add these places to your favorites under your smartphone’s GPS app.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 56: Remember Where You Came From.

Hey all, hope everyone had a great Easter Sunday (and Monday), mine was pretty good. Anyway, I did some thinking over the weekend and thought this episodic musing should focus on something I always have kept as a sort of “mantra” throughout my life. Enjoy.

Musings Episode 56: Remember Where You Came From

Rego's Life, Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From, Rego's Life Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From, Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From Rego's Life, regoslife, remember where you came from, remember where you came from quotes, always remember where you came from, remember where you came from quote, just remember where you came from, always remember where you came from, do not forget where you came from

Anyone recognize the screenshot from this movie? If you do, comment below…it’d be cool to see who else knows 🙂

But that’s not the movie I’m on about in this post…in fact, this weekend I watched The Drifter –

Rego's Life, Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From, Rego's Life Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From, Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From Rego's Life, regoslife, remember where you came from, remember where you came from quotes, always remember where you came from, remember where you came from quote, just remember where you came from, always remember where you came from, do not forget where you came from

…a film where Rob Machado just kind of gets away from it all. Tries to get back to his roots. Tries to get back to what surfing was all about. Overall a really chill but powerful film – with one of the best soundtracks to date.

A lot of times so many people get caught up in the things they’re doing on an ongoing basis, and in turn quite often forget where they came from. Think about this for a second – and I know – usually telling someone to “remember where they came from” is something that’s assimilated to saying such things to a person who’s at the top, made it, etc…basically become successful.

While it’s true, when you become successful you should always remember where you came from…but let’s not forget that this can also be applied to people heading to their desired destination, goal, or purpose.

Because of the fact most people do have jobs, it can be easy to forget why you’re working that job if you have a goal for your life. Funny thing about jobs is they can get you into a rhythm, or “rut” so to speak if you’re not careful. You forget why you’re doing the job, and just end up going after the money…and feeling lost or aimless. This is where you’ve gotta find your center again.

Rego's Life, Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From, Rego's Life Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From, Musings Episode 56 Remember Where You Came From Rego's Life, regoslife, remember where you came from, remember where you came from quotes, always remember where you came from, remember where you came from quote, just remember where you came from, always remember where you came from, do not forget where you came from

Not that anyone can blame you – it’s a cycle. It’s called getting into a “comfort zone,” and not the healthy kind…because getting into that kind of comfort zone can make you forget what you were originally going after.

Sticking to getting what you really want though, can sometimes be a lonely road. If you want it bad enough, you’ll understand this – because nothing, and I do mean nothing can stop you from acquiring it. Not people’s criticism. Not temporary defeat. Nothing. You’ve gotta get to the point where in the words of Napoleon Hill it’s an “obsession.”

This is what I mean when I say remember where you came from. Remember where you started. Remember why you started. No matter how long ago it was, how lonely it felt, or how seemingly insignificant it may have felt at that time, never lose sight of the vision.

Remember where you came from…and you’ll remember where you’re going.

For The Weekenders: Ping Pong Battles, Winks and Whiskey, Korean Tacos…

I’m quite happy about this For The Weekenders. It’s like a Sound of Music moment for me – not saying that I enjoy musicals (cough). Just saying…it reminds me of childhood days and the fact that these are a few of my favorite things. Plus…I’m confident you’ll like it too. I mean really – and don’t let the ping pong battles fool you. They’re brutal. Let’s get started shall we…?

For The Weekenders: Ping Pong Battles, Winks and Whiskey, Korean Tacos…

For The Weekenders Ping Pong Battles Winks and Whiskey Korean Tacos, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Ping Pong Battles Winks and Whiskey Korean Tacos, For The Weekenders Ping Pong Battles Winks and Whiskey Korean Tacos Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Wink & Nod, Wink and Nod, InBoston, InBoston Korean Kitchen, Blazing Paddles, weekend activities, boston nightlife, boston restaurants

You take a step back…shift your weight onto your right foot. Wiggle your left hand a bit for balance, and feel a drip of sweat trickle down your brow. Eyes dilated, you place a firm grip on the paddle in your right hand…swing your arm back with elegance and…bingo – perfect play.

Ping pong just got a whole lot more fun. With DJs, drinking, and some post game dancing, hell, ping pongs gone and grown up. It just can’t get any better than Blazing Paddles. This is your go-to spot for when you’ve just completed exams, or have been studying the week through all for that Bachelor’s Degree in [insert subject here].

This is the place to go when you’re tired of conventional bars, with conventional pool tables, and slippery dance floors from all the beer spilt. This is for all those nights you spent wracking your brain on Pub Quiz but dammit, you realized you just aren’t that into pop culture.

This is the place where students, music and sports enthusiasts, and of course Ping Pong battlers, practically everyone can gather and come together on mutual ground and similar interests, and “groups” or “clicks” disappear.

Who am I kidding? Bostonians are chill like that anyway.

So this is the plan, you’ve got two major options – if you’re feeling low key, just slip into the establishment (conveniently located in Game On), head downstairs, and book your table – I reckon an hour or so should be good enough to work up a sweat (and thirst). If you’ve never tried Ping Pong before now would be a good time – just remember, it’s all in the wrist.

However if that doesn’t work out, you can always try out their batting cage – show of your strength. You know. That sort of thing.

As for that second option, if you wanna do it up big and hold a party, just ring Blazing Paddles up or fill out their form online – they’ll cater to your every need (all shy of helping your score with your date – you’re on your own with that one. Sorry.)

When you’ve finally had enough or just fancy a break, hit up the bar while checking out what’s on the menu – Ping Pong can be a hungry game…and if you really find you like the place, stick around a bit longer for a few more rounds until the DJ shows up – because really that’s when the fun begins. After that, it’s really all just Saturday Night Fever.

But let’s say you hit up Blazing Paddles early, and you’re not really feeling the Pepper Jack Cheeseburger (are you crazy? Why? It’s got avocado for Christ’s sake.), or your friends and you just feel like keeping the energy rolling by getting food first, then sporting later…or maybe even your friend from Seoul just touched down and wants a bit of fusion food (improbable? Think again). What then? Well, you say adieu and shuffle on over to InBoston.

Though you may remember another restaurant I wrote on similar to this one in an earlier post, I can assure you the most certainly are not the same. While they both serve Korean wings, InBoston gets interesting and servers up some pretty epic Korean Tacos as well…and I’m sorry but – tacos.

It’s the perfect spot for when you want something borderline “cheat meal,” borderline healthy. Yes, they have fries. Yes, they have chicken…they like to keep things simple on their menu – but with simplicity comes mastery, and mastery comes art. You do something long enough, especially with food, and you learn to make it distinct. Original. Flavorful.

Think of this place as your favorite take away spot. They don’t have a lot of chairs, and reasonably so – they’re in the financial district.

It makes them a little hard to find yeah, but if you know where Gene’s Flatbread Cafe is, you can find these guys. Just look across the street. The staff is friendly, and the food always fresh. Try the Bulgogi Taco – you can’t go wrong.Bottom line – if you like Mexican food, this is the place for you. If you like Korean food…this is the place for you. If you like both Mexican and Korean food and wish someone would combine the two – why are you still reading this? Get over there. NOW.

Stomach full and ping-ponged out, this is the last stop. You made it – now it’s time to just kick back and relax, while you melt into supple white leather chairs, sipping on a G&T to revive your spirits. If you don’t like gin, that’s okay – the bartenders here have a knack for making spectacular, noteworthy drinks. Ask for something with whiskey and prepare to be blown away. It’s called Wink & Nod for a reason, you know.

This is the place when you want to wind down from the noise of the batting cage, or the thrill of the game at your favorite bar. This is the place where, if you’ve had enough fun with your friends, you can split and pick up that person who gave you their number while you were in line at Starbuck’s last week…for a nice quiet drink. The atmosphere? Breathtaking.

…and I use that word very, very sparingly.

It’s the kind of place where you appreciate soft leather chairs, perfect lounge lighting, and interesting prints on furniture and floor. You can focus on conversation while keeping the palette smooth, and when you start feeling a little too warm and fuzzy, bring your buzz back down to maintainable levels with a few of their menu items. Try the Short Rib Yakitori – there’s no such thing as too much yakitori.

Oh, and when you’re really ready to get nice and cozy with that person you brought along? Head over to the seating opposite the bar.

Super low key this weekend was. Met up with a good friend and was brushing up on some literature from Jeffrey Gitomer and had this brilliant idea to write about trust.

Trust is a tricky thing. It ties in with more aspects of life than some may stop to think and realize. Trust is one of those things that can be broken in an instant, take years to create…and decades to repair.

Often people have trouble trusting those they’ve never met.

…but what about trusting people who are your own bloodline?

This is where going with your gut, or really being in touch with your “higher self” comes into play. Trust takes thought, consideration, and the ability to go against the grain of the societal norm and get in touch with your own humanity.

It’s about not always looking out for your own arse.

These days the world we live in can be so pessimistic when a person does come across someone who’s genuinely kind, or genuine in general really, it’s either mistaken for flirting or as if that person has an “angle.”

A friend of mine grew up as an orphan, and we often discuss things like trust, and what it was like for him not knowing that when it came to family. It was as if it was foreign to him.

So many people these days take their own family for granted and don’t realize just how much having a support system is key to human survival.

Before all the modern technology and medicine, people had shorter life expectancies – meaning they were literally forced to appreciate an array of things in life many don’t think twice about nowadays.

It’s not so much dependence human beings need, but interdependence – and that’s a whole different ball game.

Both dependence and interdependence can really only be carried out if a person has someone they can TRUST – independence is in a different field, where really it just comes down to relying on yourself.

My friend having previously been in the military said that while being an orphan did indeed teach him a tremendous amount of independence, it was incredibly difficult, but somehow strangely comforting taking up a profession where some type of interdependence isn’t just optional, but MANDATORY for survival.

We both were sat down over coffee this weekend while he was telling me this…and all at once I could see a mix of emotions flowing across his face. Pain. Comfort. Happiness. Contemplation.

Then while taking a sip he sentimentally mentioned that he loved that feeling. That feeling of interdependence. Because really, it didn’t matter if his own bloodline didn’t want him – yes, it was bitter, at first, painful, heart-wrenching…

…but he’s the type of guy that understands you can’t wallow in that shit.

You can’t wallow in the fact that the very same people that are supposed to trust you, know you, and understand you, are those who probably do less of that than the stranger on the street, or the guy who stays in the same barracks as you.

This is the spin on trust many people don’t even consider in their day to day lives…and you know, stuff like this compels me to write on it, pay attention to it, and pay attention to people more.

That’s what trust is – paying attention.

It’s about going with your gut – not your head.

It’s about listening to that bit of intuition that pops up in the still of night – not the 10 people who’ve sourced information all from heresay.

It’s about exercising humanity.

It’s about understanding your fellow man.

It’s about touching the human heart.

Because when you trust someone – you’re saying you believe in them. When you believe in them – you touch their heart.

…and believing in someone is one of the few, but fundamental things needed in today’s world.

Trust yourself, and you can trust others.

Believe in yourself, and you can believe in others…and get others to believe in you.

Pay attention to those around you, and don’t for a second take anyone, or anything for granted.

Because at some point in life, no matter how smooth the sail is, you’re gonna want someone to believe in you. To trust in you.

Show some humanity – even if you get bitten once in a while.

Better to be bitten for doing something decent, than going through life with blinders on your eyes – because with those blinders, although you avoid seeing all the messy stuff – you also miss out on seeing a lot of the really beautiful things, too.
