[Babbles] Slow down you crazy child

Pressure Indeed (*Courtesy of http://www.rockandpop80s.com)

Another day into what seemingly is the epicenter of a broiling oven. And, what is up with all these people in the suburbs burning fields, leaves, trash and who knows what? It’s hard enough to refrain from a complete meltdown in this horrendous heat, let alone reach near suffocation because of all the damn smoke. Okay, so it hasn’t been the best day in the bunch, not the perfect day to ride around in your motorbike either, but I was vrooming around regardless, burnt bum and sizzling feet what not. You start to think whether they’ll ever make mobile bubbles for traveling, you know, a bubble enclosing you, air-conditioned and pollution proof. Wall-E deja-vu, remember those capsules, with all your necessities popping out whenever without you and your obese-ridden arse ever having to pick up a fingertip? *sigh* this world, nothing short of fish pooing in their own water, I tell you. But who am I to judge, here I am still cruising around in a polluting vespa everyday because imagining having to literally bike under this weather alone is painful.

I wish I were far away right now, as much as I love you Hanoi, it’s a mushy love-hate relationship…Arghh, curse you freaking weather! Here’s some Billy Joel for you…I find these words heart-pinning…and it has nothing to do with Vienna for me.

“Slow down, you crazy child 
you’re so ambitious for a juvenile 
But then if you’re so smart, tell me 
Why are you still so afraid? 

Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about? 
You’d better cool it off before you burn it out 
You’ve got so much to do and 
Only so many hours in a day 

You’ve got your passion, you’ve got your pride 
but don’t you know that only fools are satisfied? 
Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true 
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you? ” – Vienna, Billy Joel

Alas, my cry has been heard. It has just rained!
