Weekend update

Had to work half day on Saturday. After a super boring lively department meeting for 4 hours straight, I went home to pick up Adam and wait for wifey to call me to pick her up. She did call but she asked to go to Mid Valley to buy something. Since I always complain about spending too much time with her at the mall before, I thought why not I let her go alone this time although this means I had to look after Adam at home instead (I wanna sleep!!). In the end I gave in and stayed home with Adam.

BAD PATRICK!! BANG! BANG! (Adam giving Patrick a piece of his mind.)
Which proved to be a mistake because I only get to sleep for around 15 minutes before Adam started picking up my nose, pulling my ears and began bouncing merrily on my back. So I grudgingly wake up and shove put him into the car and drove around to find something to eat.

Uhh, are we there yet?

So there we were driving around town to no place in particular. Just me, Adam and Patrick. Thank God for Patrick. I'd lose my sanity if it wasn't for him. He's responsible for keeping order and calm in my car while I'm driving. Adam can turn into a little MONSTER at times when he's alone with me in the car. No point fasting/restraining him to a seat belt whatsoever, he'd probably cry his head off if I do that.

In the end we went to KFC in Sri Serdang for lunch. We hung around the place for like 2 hours waiting for Linda before she finally call. Turned out she just came back from a shopping spree at Mid Valley. Bought herself 2 new shoes, several household items (I didn't know we need a new pan?) and a pair of shoes for Adam and not forgetting she got me Pizza Hut™'s Pasta Pefetto Bolognaise Supreme™ (how thoughtful of her!). Of course I sulked don't mind she didn't buy me anything. She totally deserve to indulge on a little shopping therapy after her recent raise. I know I can't afford to give her everything and I'd probably say no to half the things she bought if I went along that day so it's okay honey :)

Gosh, I didn't know we have twins!

On we Sunday went to Alamanda in Putrajaya. We had to get a new iron since Adam deliberately accidentally broke the old one to pieces. It's been a while since we last went there and the place hasn't change much. I saw this cool yellow Nike Malaysian National Football team sweater* at Al-Ikhsan but at RM279 I'd say we probably qualify for the World Cup first before I can afford it :) And there's this new Hello Kitty toys in the Happy Meal set which I think somebody would go ga ga over :P We'd stay longer there if it wasn't for Adam. After an hour had past he started doing breast strokes (again) at the concourse area. So we decided to act like we didn't know him and quickly walk away before he finally get up and make a run for us.

So that's how our weekend has been. Tomorrow work one more day and got 2 days off after that yay!

*So guys, now you know what to get for my birthday!

I think the guy who made this has too much creativity or free time and he really need to get a job maybe?

Lost in translation

Here at AFIF PLC, we really love a good humour to lift our dampen spirit and knock ourselves silly laughing. And this next clip must be one of the funniest EVAR!

This swf video has been moved here here.

We will win it 2-1

On a night where sloppy defending and ineffective forwards shown by the Reds, a single Joe Cole goal now separates us from a second Champions League final in three years. A match against Chelsea has never been easy for us and the Blues were rock solid in the first half and we were outplayed for most of the match.

But fret not. The return leg at Anfield will be totally different. The world famous Liverpool fans will roar us to victory and we will win the leg 2-0 (at least) for another final tie against Milan (hopefully!). You'll never walk alone.

12 things to do before I die

Life is short and you’ll never know when you gonna die so I thought I better start listing several things I’d like very much to do before I die. They even made a dedicated website here at 2dobeforeidie.com where people exchange lists, stories and ideas about stuff they wanna do (before they die). So here's my list.

1. Have a baby girl
Picture borrowed from Dooce.com

Not that I mind having boys it's just I think baby girls are sooo0 adorable and twice as cute! And perhaps they're less naughty and would actually listen to me, for once?

2. Watch Liverpool beat Manchester United live at Anfield

A 7-0 score line would be fantastic!! And I'd like to see Rooney, Ronaldo, Giggs and Ferdinand sent off (Rooney 4 match ban also).

3. Ride the Trans-Siberian Railway

Although not as romantic as the Orient Express or as fast as the Shinkansen bullet train, somehow I felt compelled to try this particular train service. The Trans-Siberian Railway runs from Moscow to Vladivostok (that's over 9000 km), spanning 8 time zones and taking 7 days to complete. I hope they have Astro installed ha ha!

4. Bungee jump
Preferably in New Zealand (maybe after that I can visit Frodo ha ha ha!).

5. Travel to 100 countries
I know this one is quite cliché and like everybody got this on their list but what the heck.

6. Buy a house in Putrajaya
They have such nice homes there.

7. BASE jump / sky dive.
BASE jumping is a sport involving the use of a parachute to jump from fixed objects like Buildings, Antenna (an uninhabited tower such as an aerial mast), Span (a bridge or arch) or Earth (a cliff or other natural formation). Unlike skydiving, BASE jumping involves lower altitude and lower airspeed so lower the risk. But I'd like to try the two of them anyway whichever comes first. Did I tell you I'm an adrenaline junkie? Intense or dangerous sport activities give me real satisfaction. Too bad most of them are so damn expensive.

8. Shop in the Akihabara district.

Akihabara (in Tokyo) is best-known as one of the largest shopping areas on Earth for electronic, computer, anime, and otaku goods, including new and used items. Now this is my idea of a true shopping heaven!

9. Watch the Malaysian national football team play in the World Cup Finals

Instead of rooting for the usual England, Brazil or Italy, I'd like to see the national team actually qualifies for the Finals? If the likes of Togo or Trinidad & Tobago can make it, why the hell can't we? Come on, try harder you slackers!

10. Make my mother and my wife really-really happy.

Not that they're unhappy with me now or anything it's just I wanna do or accomplish something big/special for them you know, make them really proud of me...

11. Perform the Hajj

Well, I suppose every decent Muslim should wanna do this at some point of their life...

12. Visit Sweden

Aaaah Sweden. How I'd like to meet all the beautiful Scandinavian ,girls people, shop at IKEA, sample the (halal) meatballs, hike along the fjords and wrestle with the rein deers (while dancing to the tunes of ABBA of course ha ha!). This is the place I'd like to visit very much although I'm just too cool to admit it :P

12.b Ride a really huge roller-coaster

Since no 12 is part of no 5, I'm gonna add this one to the list. Yeah I'd never ridden a roller-coaster before (not even in Genting). I heard Six Flags theme park in the U.S got some really huge and awesome roller-coaster. I'd like to try that one day.

Except for number 9, everything I'd like to do above simply requires money (lots and lots of them) so I guess I'm gonna have to be loaded with them first (sigh!) before I can achieve any of them (more sigh!).

Apart from that, one thing I'd like to do after I die is to donate my organs to people who needs them (remember this Linda, Adam!).

And of course it would be more fun if we can find out what my friends would like to do before they die so I'm gonna turn this into a meme and tag 5 lucky people. Of course you don't have to include pictures or lengthy descriptions like I did, just 12 (or more/less) simple lists would suffice and afterward you can tag 5 more people and so on. So our very lucky bloggers for today are:

Productive day at work

Tada!! Guess what? It's time for some funny photo captions again !!!

Caveman parade

"This parade is so easy even a caveman can enter!"

Every circus rejected Ahmed and his band of fools.

"STOP, STOP The rope is wrapped around my wooly mammoth."

"Damn! I forgot it was gay-ride-a-wooly-mammoth-to-work day. I'll have to go home and change."

Deleted scenes from Sesame Street

"We're going to Rin's partay! Yay!! What da ya mean we're not invited?? Owh you mean the theme is Dora not Tora the caveman?"

Please hold

“Yes, Doctor, the erection has lasted more than 72 hours. What should I do?”

“If you don't deliver my pizza in under 30 minutes, the woman gets it!”

"Hello, 911? I want to report a stalker. Yes ... I'll hold."

“I can't talk right now, I think my wife suspects something.”

“Yes, I know it looks odd, but out here it's the only way we can get the phone to work.”

"No honey you got it wrong, it's Fu-yoh not Fu-foh..."

Super Dog

It's a movie. Two words...

"... and number 2, I don't read Zukky's blog just because she's hot okay? Don't get any ideas..."

"Aney, roti bom dua kuah kasi banjir arr.."

"Wow, I have to recommend this book to Chad!

"Let's see, mind tricks, nope... impress people with your marksmanship, darn it... display your uniqueness and individuality for all to see, aww, come on!"

"Chapter 4: Always Make Eye Contact"... Dang!

"This chapter's dull. Move on to the next one."

"I'm so glad Rin suggested this book for me, it's AMAZING!!"

"So, frogs ARE reptiles! I knew I was right all along!"

Afif had too much free time at the office again.. :)

Once upon a time in SMACH...

My first time

It was post PMR and the form 3 students got no class to go and pretty much nothing to do except join some inter-classroom games held every other day while waiting for school term to end. So our teachers and wardens thought why not give the kids a break and gave us free access to the TV/recreational room in the evening. They even let us bring some movie tapes to watch during the weekend which proved to be too much for us. Why? Here's the story.

It was just a regular weekdays night and as usual I decided to hang out in the TV room to watch some TV (duh!). Anyway when I got there, the TV room was exceptionally quiet. Normally you can hear the boys chatting and making so much noise clearly from the next hostel's block. But not that night, suddenly the boys was very well-behaved for some strange reason. So I joined them and there they was watching a video tape. Soon I found out that the video was about a white chick getting humped by a white dude and they were making some pretty weird sounds. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what's that all about so I being a normal 15 years old the good student as I was back then watched the video with them to the very end quickly made my way out of the room and grabbed a book to read instead.

So yeah, that was my first encounter with porn. Of course I didn't make this up. Just ask any students of my batch (SPM 97) and they'll relate to you the very same story. Of course the kid who brought that tape in the first place got transferred to another school soon after that. He meant to kept it a secret you know watch it with his close friends but who was his kidding? I mean sooner or later the teachers/wardens will definitely find out. You can't sweep this elephant under the rug!

That's how my friends spend their free time. Of course this only happens at SMACH :)

Not that I'm saying I'm proud of all that. It's just a story to share :P

Dumb-ass frog

Every morning when I drive to the LRT/KTM Komuter station to drop off wifey, I will usually channel-surf between 4 radio stations namely Hot FM, Era, Hitz and Fly FM. Every morning on Hot FM they will run this short quiz where the listeners call up the station to answer 3 simple questions (Fakta atau Auta). Every morning also I will laugh out loud and curse those callers who failed to answer those really easy questions like the capital of Uganda (Kampala) or the real name of Madonna (Louise Veronica Ciccone), like my 2 years old can answer that!!!

So last week I decided to try my luck and call up the radio station myself. Actually Linda did all the dialling and re-dialling while I drive and we tried for 4 days and this morning we actually got through! I was excited and slightly nervous of course since it's been a while since I called any radio station (last time was like 8 years ago). Some sweet talking producer answered my call and she asked me my name and details and I waited like a minute before I finally get to talk to the two djs (Faizal Ismail & Fara Fauzana).

As usual, Fara Fauzana spelled my name wrong (she called me Hafiz) which is typical of so many people. It's either they got a really bad hearing or they're just plain insensitive. Anyway Fara shot me 3 questions. First, a frog is a reptile. I thought frog = crocs = lizards, must be correct! So I answered Fakta (true). Next question, the full name for actor Que Haidar is Tengku (insert full name here) something which sounded true enough so I answered Fakta again. Last question, Javier Saviola is a football player for Barcelona. I swore I heard she said Xavier Alonso so I thought, hey that's our Liverpool player! So I said Auta (false). Turned out I got only ONE correct out of three and I lost miserably to that other caller (a girl) who got two correct (sooooo embarrassing!). Okay maybe I didn't hear the last question properly but a frog, reptile? They're amphibians you dummy!!

Anyway, I still think they're giving me something cause the took down my address and stuff. Later I checked out their web site and guess what the winners get this week?

That's right, a stay at the brand new Carlton Holiday hotel in Shah Alam!!! That damn frog!!!!!

Yes, I'm blaming this solely on the frog. I'm so gonna try again next week. This isn't over yet!

Did I mention my voice sounded terrible on radio?

First Malaysian in space

"Hello Houston this is cosmonaut Afif calling from orbit, do you copy roger?"

"Copy Afif, but Roger's off for today but would you like to talk to Patrick instead? And why the heck are you calling Houston? I thought it's those Russians who sent you there??"

"Uhh, I don't know they gave me this number to call just before launch... Aww man , those people must be playing some kind of joke on me!"

Yeah, you heard me right. They actually decided to send me as the first Malaysian into space instead of those two clowns. Trust me, those guys don't know a thing about space travel, who were they kidding? (Too bad SUCKERS!!)

So here I am minding my own business in space, in fact I've just finished answering the call of nature just now. It's not easy doing it in zero gravity mind you. You got to aim properly or else you gonna see your waste floating around ha ha!

And contrary to popular belief, I'm not doing any of those teh-tarik, batik painting or batu seremban crap (what were they thinking!!!). We cosmonauts have better and more important things to do you know like this for example:

Yeah, that's me by the way rocking to the tune of "rasa sayang hey! rasa sayang-sayang heyyyy!!" (must be patriotic man!). And if Dr Sheikh and Dr. Faiz got some freaking problem with me being the first Malaysian in space, they need to take it out with me after I get back on Monday (LOSERS!!!).

Adam Development Update (ADU)

Meet Adam Farihin, 2.4 years old from Seri Kembangan in Selangor. He works full time eating, sleeping, playing and driving his mom and dad MAD!

He likes McDonald's very much especially their french fries. He can spot a McDonald's signage from miles away and asks his parent politely "let's go to McDonald's!". Sometimes his parent will take him there but most of the time they'll just ignore him cause else he'd be one of those overweight kid by now.
He also loves to sing and dance and one of his favourite tune is Pencinta wanita by Irwansyah. He already memorized like half the lyrics and would sing along, dance and strum his imaginary guitar whenever the song is playing. It's sooooo cute and funny, I could die from cute overload!

He also loves other songs like Berdua lebih baik and My Heart (in fact he likes every song in the Heart movie soundtrack) but he only can sing the last word of each line like:

berdua dengan mu..
pasti lebih baik..
aku yakin ituuuu..
bila sendiri....

(the one he remembers in bold)

It's still so ridiculously cute and I can't stop laughing every time he does that!

And sometimes when his mom scold him and gave him a lecture on what he did wrong he would initially listen and when she's finished he would cheekily say "paham tak?"

He always bug me to take him to the grocery store (kedai) so that he can get some sweets and when I refuse and say "tak nak" he would reply "tak nak, sudah.."

He can understand now when his mom or dad got to go to work and asks "Papa pergi mana tuuu?" and when I say "Papa pergi kerja sayang" he won't cry or throw a tantrum now and he'd wave to his papa at the door until I'm out of sight (so touching, sob..!)

That's what my Adam is like so far, don't grow up too soon now! :)

I don't love you

[The swf video has been moved here]

This video.

Very deep.

I don't love you, seriously. Although I visited your blog like 10 times a day, it doesn't mean anything.

Don't get any ideas.

And I don't care really if you're not talking to me anymore.

It doesn't bother me a bit.

Surely my friends, you can relate to one or two items in the list right?? :)

Will work for money

You see here in my company, half the staff are required to travel a lot to site offices and associate companies to do their work and stuff (including me). So we'll like use our money first to pay for the expenses first (fuel, toll, parking etc) and at the start of the month, submit our travel & transportation claims to the HRA to be processed. And if everything goes well, we'll get our claim money deposited by the 15th of the month (the latest) but usually earlier than that. Unless of course something happened and the boss decides to hold your claim because he can.

Well something DID happened this month and somehow he felt that certain workers is not doing their job well enough e.g: going to the site late, fooling around at work, that kind of sheet. I don't wanna point fingers but I have a pretty good idea who's fault is this. (@#$%&* you!)

In a related incident some time last week, I have to go to like 3 places that day let's say P, O and G. At location P I have to deliver this printer and collect some pcs, invoices and a check. At location O I had to attend a routine troubleshooting job to fix something wrong with their network printer. So you see I can't go to location O first since then I'll have to leave the printer in my car if I did. That is not advisable really unless you don't mind your car broken into. To cut the story short, I did spent a while longer at location P because something came up and the boss at O was not too pleased waiting so long for me to arrive so he called my boss directly asking when will I arrive.

When anybody directly calls my boss like that, that can only mean trouble for us. My boss was not pleased of course. He thought I should have gone to O first cause delivering printers is not as important as entertaining this guy at O. Of course he don't care if anything happens to my car or why I went to P first. I'm not that important you know. He just thought I got my priorities wrong. Therefore I think I also got something to do with this mess (sorry guys!).

The point is, he stalled our claim payment for last month, all 6 of us. That's why we're feeling so crappy (and broke) at the moment. Furthermore, some us of doesn't earn that much every month so when the claim doesn't come in on time, he'll be having some serious financial difficulty for sure.

I know The Management have every right to punish our shortcomings in one way or another but this is just too much.

We could act rebellious and refuse to go out anywhere but then there SURELY be more repercussions after that.

Just to let somebody know, we will work for money and before that we could do with some money to start working get it?

Owh Afif, eres tan valiente escribir todo el esto...

Well.. of course I'm so screwed if he ever finds out!!

Somewhere, in a galaxy far-far away

There are a few places that come to my mind when I think about travel. No I’m not interested to visit romantic Paris or bustling New York or historic Rome. For me I’d like to go to a place a little bit far away than the usual touristy places.

I’ve been contemplating to go places like Tatooine (too dry), Dagobah (too swampy), Alderaan (blasted to oblivion), Endor (too many Ewoks) or to Coruscant (too crowded). After much thought, I’ve decide to visit the idyllic planet Naboo somewhere in a galaxy far-far away.

Located close to the border of the Outer Rim Territories, Naboo is inhabited by peaceful humans known as the Naboo, and an indigenous species of intelligent amphibians called the Gungans.

Although located some 34 million light years away, a regular non-stop flight on board Air Asia usually takes around 72 hours from Pasir Mas Launch Pad to the Trade Federation ISS (pic above). Some people claim they get there faster via Air Nepal if you’re willing to board a plane full of Nepalese that is. Return tickets costs between 24000 to 50000 republic credits but they usually give special discounts to pregnant women, dad of fours, Malaysian housewives, ISP consultants and if your nick name is Bob (like in Spongebob). Why? I have no idea really.

One thing I noticed, the stewardess was a rather grumpy lot so I you don’t go making jokes like “Excuse me ma’am, where do you keep the parachute?” or “So this little yellow button is for the ejector seat right?”. Trust me, they won’t be amused.

From the ISS you’ll have to take the shuttle bus at Platform 9¾ to go to their beautiful capital, Theed built atop a plunging cliff-face lined with breath-taking waterfalls and ancient and majestic buildings, home to the elected Queen of Naboo (named Amida something).

Naboo's surface consists of swampy lakes, rolling plains and green hills. This planet is home to some 600 million inhabitants ranging from humans, Gungans, Falumpaset, Rokiahs and the Ketumpets. Naboo's river cities boast a number of magnificent buildings with classical architecture and greenery, while the underwater Gungan settlements are a beautiful display of exotic hydrostatic bubble technology (whatever that means).

The city folks are very friendly and nice but they usually wore really fancy costumes, it’s like they’re from a scene in Star Wars or something, WEIRD!!! Again, please don’t go making crude remarks like “I don’t know it’s Halloween already!” or “Dude, what have you done with my mom’s curtains?” It’s an offence to make fun of Naboo city folks and you’re liable for a fine up to 200 Republic Credits. Furthermore, it’s common sense not to make fun of other people customs really.

One of the main tourist attractions is the Koowalalumpa Lake located right in the middle of Naboo City. It is believed that a dip in this magnificent lake will make your skin radiant and shiny. But of course Rin already found a much easier way to achieve that (wink-wink;).

If you happen to visit on the 24th of November, you can catch the famous Trade Federation parade along Padang Tembak at the outskirts of the city. You are advised to be mindful of your kids because who knows they might stray into Subang Parade Mit Berry shopping mall nearby (yes they’ve got Subang Parade Mid Valley on Naboo as well, unbelievable!).

The Gungans are generally warm and cheerful but they talk rather strange like “Mesa like yousa sockas, yousa given to mesa puhleeza?” (Nice socks! Now hand it over or else..).

One place you definitely must visit is the Naboo Lake Retreat. This gorgeous lakeside resort features crystal clear waters surrounded by lovely rolling hills and is a favourite choice for newlyweds on their honeymoon. You can go for a gondola ride paddled by horny hot Italians around the lake or just chill out at their luxurious hillside villas while watching the marvelous sunset.

You can also go for a lovely picnic by the glorious cascading waterfall available only on Naboo. That’s me and Linda by the way. :P

Of course Naboo is nothing compared to Granada or Disneyland or the Caribbean but I highly recommend this place if you’ve got a few million Republic Credits to spare, you love inter-planetary travel and you’re a fan of Jar Jar Binks!

Where do you want to go Next, OUTSIDE OF YOUR COUNTRY, for tourism, work, study, whatever.

Music of the day

When you go
Don't ever think I'll make you try to stay
And maybe when you get back
I'll be off to find another way

When after all this time that you still owe
You're still, the good-for-nothing I don't know
So take your gloves and get out
Better get out
While you can

When you go
Would you even turn to say
"I don't love you
Like I did

Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading
So sick and tired of all the needless beating
But baby when they knock you
Down and out
It's where you oughta stay

And after all the blood that you still owe
Another dollar's just another blow

So fix your eyes and get up
Better get up
While you can

When you go
Would you even turn to say
"I don't love you
Like I did

Well come on, come on

When you go
Would you have the guts to say
"I don't love you
Like I loved you

I don't love you
Like I loved you

I don't love you
Like I loved you


Just when I thought there couldn't be more good songs from The Black Parade, there's this new single called I don't love you playing regularly on the radio. Why, this song is even better than that new Linkin Park single What I've done!

My Chemical Romance to me is definitely an emo band although they vehemently deny it. Just look at the way the dress, make up and lyrics, looks pretty emotional to me. Anyway I think this song is about the lead singer (Gerard Way) singing to himself from the perspective on an ex-girlfriend. In other words, when he was having drug problems ("good for nothing", "just another blow") and getting into fights ("needless beating"), his significant other was trying to help ("i cry so hard from pleading")... he ended up leaving her anyway, but didn't have the guts to admit he no longer loved her (you following me here?).

I just love this song and been playing it on and on like 2 days straight now. Enjoy!
