Travel & Adventure

Last Sunday, on the way back home from a very tiring day out, me and my flat mate was having this discussion about travelling and adventure. He was saying he wants to save up to travel. He wants to go somewhere to have an adventure. Then we got on this topic about adventure. We both agreed that to go for adventure we need to go with the right group of people. The people with the right spirit. The spirit for adventure. But it seems that to him, a definition of adventure is something like exploring the wild. Something that is physically challenging and sometime can be a bit dangerous. That’s when I realize that people can have different definition of adventure, different idea of adventure. So actually to be accurate, to get best experience from an adventure is go with people with right spirit and have similar idea of adventure.

I think adventure is anything that gives a person new experience or allows him experience something different out of his ordinary encounter along with sense of danger, thrills, and excitement. Personally, I’m very flexible in that. As long as, the feeling and experience is different, I could be doing the same thing and still enjoying it. Most of the time, all I need is the right group of people. Other than that it really doesn’t matter where I go or what I do. Despite saying so, when with the right group of people, you just ending going places and doing awesome things together. I think sometime it defeats the purpose when you always have expectations and demanding something out a trip or an outing. We should just learn to enjoy each other’s company and take whatever experience to come. Embrace our great experience together and joke about all the shitty experience with each other. Like they say… “Life is a joke. All you need is the right punchline.”

High Quality

Recently, I found myself upgrading my demands for quality in various things. So I decided to blog about it. I’ve just recently got my 21.5″ LED monitor like last week. Then I realize on a 1920×1080 resolution, 720p video quality looks almost like a DVDRip quality on my old LCD. So yeah I started downloading 1080p quality videos. Then just recently I just found out that .mp3 music quality is actually quite lousy because it’s lossless format or stuff like that… even at 320 kbps rate it’s still doesn’t sound that superb on a good earphone. That’s when I got to know these new formats called lossless formats. These lossless formats music come in extensions like .flac, .ape, and .m4a. I don’t know in great details of what exactly lossless format but from the name and the file size, I guess it’s like .png for image where the sound quality is not sacrificed (lost) after compression is done. One thing for sure is that it sounds much better than mp3! And that’s all I need to know! >.< Well basically, the vocal and the instruments sound clearer than that of mp3 especially when you play it loud. You’ll notice the difference. And if you have 1 of those damn good surround system or headphones. Then it’ll be damn obvious… anyway, if you’re owning one of those sound systems, I’m sure you already know about it more than me. I’m just stepping into this holy awesome world! >.<

Not only my taste for Video and Music quality upgraded, but for book as well. Now for me, it has to be real book, no pdf or any other ebook format. God, I know I’m spoiling myself. but again if you can afford to upgrade for a better standard why not right? 🙂
