What Google translate say Ćef is,

We hear the word "chief" every day. And do we know its meaning? Chef is a word of Arabic origin and means good mood, enjoyment, joy. It is used to describe joy as a result of the fulfillment of a desire. That's my joy on Saturday mornings, when I'm drinking coffee in the living room in my pajamas, watching the morning program and enjoying it without rushing. And I don't immediately grab a vacuum cleaner, a rag, a ladle. I don't like drinking coffee with milk from my big red cup unwashed and uncombed. The morning program is mandatory.

Chef is described as a desire, as a fetish, as a fad. Some action we enjoy. We are doing something we are passionate about. It can bother others and annoy them. It doesn't matter, it's our pleasure. That's our boss.

Here’s the TikTok video I made abut smoking.
