Holy Grail...!?!

Well If you don’t know what the title means then you should just stop reading here… No this is not about Jay-z’s Track titled Holy Grail…

No this is not about The Patta x Parra Burgundy AM1’s which I class as my Holy Grails…
(This is a sneakerhead reference if you aren’t sure please google or feel free to contact me to be schooled)

I titled it Holy Grail because i’m going to educate you peasants about The Knights of The Round, and King Arthur… Haha not really you don’t need a religious history lesson based on something which is a myth… What I wanted to talk about is the Oath the knights swore.

The Code of Chivalry.

The Knight's Code of Chivalry was a moral system that stated all knights should protect others who can not protect themselves, such as widows, children, and elders. All knights needed to have the strength and skills to fight wars in the Middle Ages; they not only had to be strong but they were also extremely disciplined and were expected to use their power to protect the weak and defenseless.

Well, the code of Chivalry was actually what defined Knights and allowed them to maintain their knighthood.

Let me give you an interpretation by Sir Thomas Malory who wrote a book based on King Arthur:

  • To never do outrage nor murder (not to fight or murder anybody)
  • Always to flee treason (not to commit treason, a crime where you go against your country or king)
  • To by no means be cruel but to give mercy unto him who asks for mercy (To be fair to people, and not be cruel)
  • To always do ladies, gentlewomen and widows succor ('succor' is an old word for help; this means that the knight must promise to help women if they need it)
  • To never force ladies, gentlewomen or widows (to never do any harm to women)
  • Not to take up battles in wrongful quarrels for love or worldly goods (not to start a pointless fight)
(Typing this up made me think of the dog in Game of Thrones… Took a BIG BREAK to re-watch it haha)

I see this as the basic form of Chivalry…and it’s been adapted in the 21st Century as the Gentleman’s Code.

I mean it’s a very very simple way of life… I myself follow these rules or code of conduct because I believe it should be followed without any thought. It’s how a man should act at all times. To me it’s very basic skills of living within a community. Simple shit like holding a door open for a lady or even a man. Come on WHAT DOES IT ACTUALLY COST YOU… Thats how most people think now a days… Everyone thinks about themselves and thats it…

I can list many things a man should do for a woman, or how a man should act but I don’t think I need to school any of you… If you need to be reminded of these simple life skills then please have a go at your parents/guardians you was not raised properly…. If you don’t want to pass the blame to them then, blame society because living by such a Gentlemans Code is now seen as ‘Thirsty’... No I don’t want to get into your pants… No I’m not trying to make a pass on you because every guy that approaches you has only their interests in mind… (Do you know what this last line might be true and hell the previous line must be true… but please do not generalise for the whole male race. Some of us have mothers, daughters and sisters. We expect many people to be able to have a general understanding of how women should be treated)

I do this shit not for the satisfaction… Or for any recognition… I do it because I believe it’s morally correct… It’s the same as waking up and brushing your teeth, saying please and thank you. Just think about how a house is built, how a plant grows. Without the foundations in proper order what use is the rest of the house, or how can a plant grow without it’s roots. Next time you’ve got the opportunity to open a door for someone, (make sure the person you're opening a door for doesn’t have to take more than 5 Steps..)[I think this is widely accepted if you don’t hold it open if she has to do a slight sprint, specially in heels]

I’m sorry about this blog… I’m not here to boost my Ego and say I’m perfect and I abide by these rules at all time… But I just want people to recognise there are still people out there who believe in Chivalry and not all of them are out to get you haha…

Well I’ll have to drop another Jay-z reference here…

Onto the next one…..

(This blog actually ties well with the next one)

Ain’t Nobody Fucking With My Clique.... ?!
Slightly Late... I KNOW...!!
Haha Nah this blog is inspired by this...

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you would have seen this image ages ago... if you’re a hypebeast you would have seen it ages ago... If you’re a South Park fan you would have seen this image..

That’s a brief history lesson for you hypebeasts/Non-hypebeasts/People who don’t give a shit about fashion or Kanye west...
This can be all narrowed down to this quote...
“Birds of A feather Flock Together!”

Well if you don’t know what that means please stop reading...

Have you ever noticed how a single person can influence a/your social circle. I’ve given Kanye West as an example, it’s an extreme example because he influences all the hypebeast/hipsters... (I dare you to categorize me in that..)
Anyways take a look at your own social circle, your group of friends... 99.9999% chance the power of fashion has influence amongst you guys/gals..

Don’t wear the same shit like it’s a fucking Uniform... That shit is just ridiculous... I understand the influence fashion has on kids now a days. Don’t let the media suck you in..
I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.!”

I’m not going to reference where that is from... as you need to gather knowledge on your own.
Anyways I believe this limited edition business has got out of hand!  Everyone wants to have the rarest hardest to get clothing and kicks,  but then within your 'clique' they will have the same shoe or item.  Was it really that hard to get hold of?!  Clothing brands releasing friends and family only shit,  that people will wear like a uniform.  It's a shame we've all lost our individuality, and when people start something different it's criticised.
I mean fashion will always be around since we need to be clothed, but don't let it control you. My argument might be to not dress like your friends or social Circles but that's what puts you within them groups,  and that's how trends are started a group starts it off and other people see it and adapt to it.  
Well do you dress the way you do to fit into your social circle, or isit because of the way you dress that you’re in that social circle... This argument only you will know..!!

Time. A Man Made Concept ?!?!.......

Ask yourself this What is time?! It’s something on your phone, on your watch or on your wall. It’s a man made concept... If you break it down... Growing & Aging is what the powers above have given us, time is what man has created to measure this process...

Time was created to allow you to grasp the past in memory, the present by attention, and the future by expectation. Imagine there was no concept of time, by having time you’ve been limited in what you as a human must do. You have certain time slots for certain things...

This Timepiece basically shows how we are humans have been caged by this concept that someone unintentionally created to ease the simple Mind us humans have. They say we use about 10% of our brain.. (I know you kids now a days will actually think about Limitless when you read that)... The older more mature audience will think about Illuminati if you’ve gather enough knowledge on the brotherhood of freemasonry. Thats another blog post...

This is a picture of the current watch I own.. I’m not bound by space and time... I’ve freed myself from this concept and so should you. I’m only limited to what I need as a human being to survive.. time was created for me to give you this in measurements so your simple mind can comprehend it.
Think about this, the appearance of time is a trick of the memory. If asked to think about the past, and the future it’s nothing but memory, or expectations or predictions. What you would call it’s all in your head.

I didn’t realise talking about Time would bring in so many other points of views and discussions... As you can see i’m not really bothered to jump into all these... I could give you an e book on my opinions, but i’m going to leave it at this because i’ve not got the ‘Time’ for this.... Haha...

I’m going to leave you with a final note....

“A reminder that you can never spend too much time on the things you're passionate about & that's something that applies to everyone.”

Levi Maestro

Before wrapping this up I read a little piece and it had to be shared, i’m going to share it exactly the way it was printed because it was printed like that for a reason...

1.If the present and the future
Depend on the past,
Then the present and the future
Would have existed in the past.

2. If the present and the future
Did not exist there,
How could the present and the future
Be dependent upon it?

3. If they are not dependent upon the past,
Neither of the two would be established.
Therefore neither the present
Nor the future would exist.

4. By the same method,
The other two divisions-past and future,
Upper, lower, middle, etc.,
Unity, etc., should be understood.

5. A nonstatic time is not grasped.
Nothing one could grasp as
Stationary time exists.
If time is not grasped, how is it known?

6. If time depends on an entity,
Then without an entity how could time exist?
There is no existent entity,

So how can time exist?

It's All In The Detail...!?!

I would like to take this time and opportunity to thank all my close friends and family who were there to celebrate my Birthday this year... I cut too many cakes and was surprised way too many times.... If you know me you know I hate surprises... and that leads me to this blog post... It’s all in the detail...

Usually I can work these things out because I like to process everything. Everything I see and hear I will take it on board... and ask myself WHY?!?

Just Remember.. EVERYTHING has a meaning... Someone that twitches their nose, the way someone looks at an Item... Every Action Has A Motive... Or a meaning.  It depends on how you look at these things!  Isit a positive way or negative way?  

Enough about this bullshit haha you don't need to learn to read into all this because at the end of the day it will just cause problems for yourself,  you will look into it much deeper than you need to.  

Paying attention to detail is a trait that not a lot of people have!  This can be in everything around you,  from a stain on someone's top to the pattern of the pocket square tucked in that blazer pocket.  The smaller details imo have the bigger impacts!  These are the things people put thought and effort into achieving it could be a simple smile to just an extra stitching on your shoe.  It was put there for a reason, sometimes it has a meaning and a function. Sometimes it’s there because it’s aesthetically pleasing.

The point of this blog was just to share the fact people are always too concerned with the bigger picture and never sit down and enjoy the finer things in life. Notice the smaller things the powers above have put infront of you.

I’m just going to leave it at that and recommend you pick up a book Called The Alchemist. By Paulo Coelho...

I’ve set you home work... Because learning never stops..

If you got the title then you would know what this blog post is about... E3 hasn’t even been wrapped up yet and you all know i’m a Nintendo Fan... Always have been always will be and there is a reason for that..!!

The Title I know is from Metal Gear Solid... Yes you new age players will be like thats not a Nintendo game etc etc etc... Do your research... MGS has come out on nearly all consoles... But what I really want to mention is Super Smash Bro’s Universe.. DO you know what you don’t come onto my blog to read about shit you can find elsewhere. Facts and figures, videos and reviews what ever you want to know you can just google that shit....
As for my opinion I will only mention the best games and that may not even be the ones ur interested in... Anyways lets kill of this paragraph...

So why did I pick that title... usually they will basically sum up the whole blog post... this one is about my Snakey ‘Brother’... You may or may not know who this person is but I treated him like a brother..
I’ve know him for a very long time and we’ve been through alot together and individually.. We’ve grown up watching [back stabbing in his case] each others backs... For those of you who do not know me personally... Yes i’m an absolute dick, someone you want to punch in the face.. but let me be honest with you here i’m actually that go to guy...

Of course people have different opinions about each other, sometimes it’s cruel and it’s something they are born with... Sometimes it’s just the way they have treated you... And other times it’s the way that person acts in general...

Yes, I am that guy who likes to and tries to please everyone and every third party involved indirectly... 1 because I believe I have a reputation to keep and I would like to keep my reputation intact... I grew up with the worst of Reps... so once i moved away from that academic and school environment I built a solid foundation. Where I’ve tried to layer into a mansion of knowledge and information.... 2 because helping others and being ‘nice’ is just manners... In this day and age what has the true gentleman become ?!?!

The other day I offered to help a lady, and she just told me to fuck off because she wasn’t interested ?! Excuse me..!?! I’m not trying to move you stupid bitch... I just wanted to do a duty as a gentleman and help you out... I’m sorry just because I speak to you doesn’t mean I want something... Thats what society has taught us every move needs to have a motive and usually that motive is negative... Stop being so selfish... I offered a helping hand because it wouldn’t have made any difference in my life... but i might have shaved off a few minutes of your life...

Anyways talking about making moves with motives... Please think about how you treat your friends... Don’t suddenly out of the blue call me because you want a problem solved... 90% of the time I will probably say Yes, because i’m that YES man... but at least give a shit about the rest of my life before you drag me into ur life... Some people just need to stop and think, It’s not always about you..

Really?! Was It Worth It...?!

Sometimes I think was it all worth it?!  
To put a smile on another person's face it is but does that actually reward yourself?!  It all boils down to the simple answer time is money,  but does money really = happiness?!  

Well it has been a few years since I wrote my extended blog post about happiness, money and my general views about it. Do you know what I can’t be bothered to fill you in on all this crap, if you want to know you can just flick on back haha... (Need to rack up them Hits)
I’ve run out of things to explain/talk about on my blogs, i’m not very inspired now a days.. Maybe because i’m just too tired.. So with a helping hand from Wayne... He mentioned Michael Kors..
As you all entered through Daniel Khor [dot] com, you know my surname is pronounced the same as this New York designer... (I bet you half the chicks who read this didn’t even know what he looks like..) [Guys i’m sure you don’t even know who i’m on about so bear with me]
That just shows how over rated this guy is... Sticks MK on a bag or a watch and everyone is jumping on that hype.. No real design... Anyone can stick logo’s on mass produced items and inflate the price... Nothing personal because the guy who owns Michael Kors wasn’t even BORN Michael Kors...
When writing essays in school you had to argue both sides of the story... So I’m going to defend the guy... What is ‘Popular’ now is actually Michael by Michael Kors... It’s like the high street version of the higher end stuff he does... Looking at it from a business perspective fucking brilliant... Everyone will buy his shit because it looks like the higher end shit but at a lower price... But even that price for MADE IN CHINA bags... Nah boy... Thats not the one... Well this might be his business plan to lower his image and make it ‘affordable’...
I’m not the expert on his items as i’m not a fan, i’ve never stepped foot into the shop and never will.. I’m not even sure if he does menswear.. But i’m not interested in any of his items..
Yeah I had to do a little research to write that small paragraph... I gave up writing that because that guy ain’t worth my time... He isn’t worth my Money hahaha...
SO next time you carry your Michael By Michael Kors bag or watch...just note it’s basically a cheap China knock off of Michael Kors... I’ve never even seen the quality so I can’t even explain what you are paying for... But don’t flaunt that shit... don’t expose yourself..
Was it really worth that price or did you pay for a Brand name again ?!
Yeah I buy a lot of ‘Branded’ stuff but at least the quality is there... it’s worth the Price...
I started this wanting to write something motivational not even for you guys, for myself and I have no idea how it ended up how it did, but I hope you enjoyed the read and I hope you take a little something away from this post. Sometimes just do a bit of background research on the brand you are buying and understand it’s roots, it’s ideals and think of it in a business perspective. Are you getting the quality your money is worth... Louis Vuitton goes up in price every so often, so If you think i’m a Hypocrite... trying getting half my collection now... I can’t even drop P on that shit.. I might have to start looking at these MK bags... But isit really worth it?!
MK is just for Christmas, It’s Not for Life...

Sorry I Do Not Usually Link My Inspirations... But this is worth a read... 

How To Buy Happiness..!?

Please MiND The Gap..!?!

As all my regular readers know, I’ve always believed the mind is the most powerful thing we humans possess. I believe this is what differentiates us from animals, it is what keeps us sane and what keeps us going. Each and every individual has a different mind. Let me throw in a quick definition of what Mind is from a quick google define search (coz i know you are all too lazy to do that)

Fuck it i’m going to post all 8 definitions Google spat back at me..

  1. The element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experiences, to think, and to feel; the faculty of consciousness and thought

  1. A person's mental processes contrasted with physical action

  1. A person's intellect

  1. The state of normal mental functioning in a person

  1. A person's memory

  1. A person identified with their intellectual faculties

  1. A person's attention

  1. The will or determination to achieve something

I’m actually only going to pick on 2 of these but for your benefit I threw all 8 of them here...

‘to be aware of the world and their experiences, to think and to feel; the faculty of consciousness’

Alrite so let me break down how I interpret this... a lot of us actually take for granted many of our senses and everything around us. To be able to feel, and to see shit around you, not all of us are capable of this.
Let me take this to a whole other level, and throw in a keyword... SOUL..

Is our mind our soul, I personally believe so (who gives a shit what you think) and our soul is immortal, I also believe that our soul actually has a physical presence. (I’m sure i’ve read of an experiment where someone weighed a body during sleep and found that our weight actually drops when we are asleep because our soul leaves the body, and they weighed a dying person and there was a slight minute change in weight when someone passed away) [Too many brackets but this is a thought process]

So there is no actual experiment carried out by myself as i’m a cryptic of this shit, but I just have to believe. Believing is a very strong factor of how our mind/soul works, your mind consciously or unconsciously can think of something and manifest that very thought into something.

‘Illness is 90% mind and 10% disease.’  
Daniel Khor (Date Unknown)

Yes I quoted myself, but I think if we are strong minded we can actually fight off any illness and problems, you know you hear all this crazy ‘miracles’ and life changing experiences because that individual believed and thought of it. Their mind was set in stone that they are able to overcome this obstacle that ‘powers above’ have thrown at them.

[I’m going to summarize all that jargon above into a quick sentence]

What you hear, experience, think about or even don’t think about will manifest into reality slowly, because your mind is a living matter and the universe is living. Your brain fires synapses through your neurons (scientist’s correct me if i’m wrong) and as soon as this process has begun the universe will begin to ‘snowball’ this chain of thought. So let me throw this curveball at you, and get them neurons working...

What if you are told you’re going to fail.....

1. You believe you’re going to fail and so the universe begins taking you down that path to make this [Statement] come true.

2. You don’t believe this is going to be true, and that's made you think i’m going to go against that and make sure it doesn’t come true. Once again that initial thought process is the beginning.

This is where I come back to number 8 in the definition. The will and determination to achieve something, don’t let people dictate what is going to happen. Only you and I mean only you have the power to chain reaction your future. It all starts with a simple thought process, if this can be achieved.

All of the above can be interpreted in any shape or form, once again this is my own thought process and has no scientific backing, no religious views or even evidence that this all exists. I just believe our mind is a powerful thing and if you learn to control it you are the God of your own future.

Too long!!

It's been so long I've even lost my fucking domain name!  It is a shame because I'm just being too jewish to update that shit!  You know what it's about time I put heart to keyboard for you guys!  Ever since I started working full time I've not given anything to you. I've decided I'm going to give u weekly if not at least monthly heart to hearts! This blog started out as something for fun, and it did grow into something i looked forward to posting. I wouldn’t call you my fans but my reader base was quite large.
Well I think it’s time to let me re-introduce myself and fill you in. The whole blog layout, links and everything will be re-worked in due time.  Regular readers know what to expect from this crap, thats why they keep coming back haha... For the new readers let me give you a quick recap... Nah, Fuck that... if you really want to get to know me click on the archive on the right, that shit will give you a full insight into who I am, who I want to be and what you should be aiming for haha...
That was the rolling start.....................
Since the last blog was just a copy and paste job and the ones before didn’t really give you a full overview of what i’ve copped.. Let me just give you a few snippets...

Yeezy 2’s, Undefeated x Bape x Adidas, Couple of Jordans and a few more Nikes... I’ve moved into higher end fashion now... Junya Watanabe, Visvim, W)Taps... That shit has begun to bore me hahaha... No need to mention all that if you want to see all of it follow my instagram, twitter or facebook...
Twitter: @DanielKhor
Instagram: @Dankhor
Facebook: Daniel Khor
Recently, I found out that my best friend for almost 10 years has left the country... Moved back to homeland to start up a new life, this has become more or less a common occurrence. I’ve lost a few friends to the Far East.... and you know what I might be joining them... I mean I wish had more to stay for, but there really is nothing in the UK... I can’t say there isn’t opportunities, but every path seems to be a dead end... (Let me provide a few motivational quotes here)

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Every wall is a door.

These two quotes are very powerful they keep me strong and keep me going. All my life i’ve tried to prove something to others, to be something i’m actually not.. Over these past 6 months i’ve learnt that.
A great man is always willing to be little.

I’ve thought too highly of myself, i’m a little arrogant but thats what ‘society’ has done to me, I feel as if I need to tread on others to become better, but back in the day I was the smaller man (Ironic, since i’m soo bloody short now compared to kids back then)
So I let people bend me a little and it’s finally taken it’s toll on me, people have taken advantage of my ‘nice-ness’ ← (Please insert a proper word here)

As the quote above suggests maybe i’m the greater man or maybe i’m not, but it’s finally hit me. I need to fight for myself, I need to be selfish and stop being that ‘Yes’ man...
I think i’ve got a blog about a few rules I follow, a couple of gentleman codes that I swear and live by. I feel as if I need to break these codes because they aren’t serving me as well as I think they are. You make mistakes you learn from these and you move on. When i’m on my deathbed i’ll look back and thank myself for all these mistakes i’ve made because that will have defined me. (Wow that sentence was soo fucked up when I was typing it, past, present and future tenses)
I’m going to cut this short as it’s 3am when I was typing this up. I type these blogs when i’m just not feeling myself, when a lot of things are on my mind. 20% of the time these blogs don’t actually make it to final cut haha... I end up saving them as a draft and publishing it later if it’s worth a read but most of the time it’s for personal reasons. Someone once said to me ‘Daniel, you can’t be happy all the time, I can’t imagine how you must feel when you are sad.’

This is what Tao’s will call Ying Yang... There is always an opposite... So for me to be Happy 90% of the time... (if you know me personally you know how happy I am haha) the come down from that natural high is painful and deep.

None of you care about this,(Sorry to have wasted your time) so i’m going to cut it but before I sign off I’ll leave you with a little something for you to ponder over..

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
