its very easy to 'appear' philosophical.
group subjects into two, give an example and finish your sentence with, "that's life"
for instance, "you know in this world there are people who like you and there are people who do not like you. you like you, i do not - like you. that's life."
now, whenever you are in the middle of a deep conversation in particular with a melayu pseudo mat saleh, pseudo deep, pseudo bohemia, holding a beer, please try the above.
he will be very fascinated with your thoughts.
