Back in my beautiful country!!

Nothing makes you realise how great your country is until you've been away. Thailand is great, the people are wonderful, the food is to die for and their hospitality is something else but as soon as i set foot on my country's soil without a doubt i know i am home.i have travelled the world and i enjoy seeing kelainan yang ada pada negeri orang, i think the diversity of all people is what makes us great. Granted, if you want to nit-pick, there are a lot of things yang kureeng di negara kita ni dan banyak hal-hal yang saya sendiri tak puas hati dengan keadaan negara kita ni seperti, di MALAYSIA ni tiada respect for intellectual property laws, tetapi, i realised, disemua negara di dunia ni, ada masaalah dan kekurangan mereka sendiri.

When i got back, one of my first encounters was with a security guard who smiled at me and said " Fuuhh... apa gemuk sangat ni?" I asked myself, "how shall i react to this? shall i comeback with a similar and hurtful personal remark about him being a security guard or should i just belasah dia kat situ jugak?". Jangan dia ingat budak gemuk yang tenang tak ada bela buaya. In Bangkok everyone i met greeted me with so much respect and i in turn found it easy to return the respect. Then i remembered something that i learned at ASIAWORKS, Whatever wrong a person does to you, just ask yourself, "if the person knew better at THAT POINT IN TIME, do you think he will still do what he did?. He is making the best choice he can, based on his awareness about life, inter-personal relationships and his perception of the world". I'm sure there was no malice intended behind what he said and although it did hurt my feelings, i told myself, mata abang ni belum di buka. Mungkin ini cara dia nak bermesra dengan saya. Mungkin ini cara orang-orang dalam hidup dia berkomunikasi. Maybe i should have just been honest and told him that i am hurt by his remarks.

We are all still learning how to become better human beings. Everyday we encounter a new problem and these are opportunities for us to make better ourselves. What's important is that we are open to new experiences.

Saya pun masih banyak yang harus saya pelajari. Saya adalah manusia yang banyak kekurangan dan kelemahan. Setiap hari saya cuba baiki diri saya dengan memaksa diri saya belajar dari kesilapan saya yang lepas. Tetapi saya juga recognise, bersyukur dan berterimakasih ke atas pemberian tuhan yang sentiasa memberi ilham kepada kepala hotak saya ni untuk membuat pembaharuan. Memberi saya keberanian, to rise above small minded people who believe that in order to achieve something or win in life, somebody else has to lose. These are the people who are jealous of the achievement and success of others. I was once one of this people,

but now,

I believe that if we believe in the win-win formula, Malaysia can and will be a great nation. i want to be a great Malaysian and i want the people i know to be great. I want u to want to be great too. The definition of great is....... up to you to decide.

A lot of people, celebrities, including myself, have wondered about the MAWI phenomenon. Why do people love him so much? Why did 12 million people vote for him for the AF3 finals? What does he have that i don't have? right?

you know, i realised now, the question that i should have been asking myself is , "what can i learn from this boy?

MAWI to me is not just a phenomenon. MAWI is a lesson, a greater power is trying to teach us. I feel people want to connect with someone who is real. I feel the malays want to champion someone who they can identify with, who potrays the common people, with the same values they have. Is the boy next door, themselves going against the odds.

MAWI is what every average teenager, coming from a poor family, dreams to be.

MAWI is a dream realised.

MAWI means DREAMS CAN COME TRUE.

MAWI, Semoga awak sedar kuasa awak terhadap sebilangan besar masyarakat yang look up to you. Macam dialog dlm SPIDERMAN,"With great power, comes great responsibilities." Stay true to your NAWAI-TU or honorable intentions"

i salute you for what you have done to the Malaysian public, you have moved them and in Malaysia that is a big deal.
More power to you bro. You are on your way to becoming a great Malaysian.

Apa yang aku membebel ni ......??!!

sebenarnya org thai macam kita juga, depan cakap elok, belakang mengumpat, it so biasa for them, i dah selalu kena, but true, they have very high adab with outsiders. adab paling i tak suka ialah, waktu deme ngan kengkawan deme, deme akan terus cakap thai, kita langsung dah tak diendahkan. this is very kelantanese, no?

selambakodok said...

heehee.... hate to say this, tapi betoi jugak. Gua dah experience their clicky-ness masa kat itm dulu.
But kita generalising la bro.

cempakabiru said...

slm.err..camner nk mula nih?ni br kat blog dh tak tau nk taip apa, kalo jumpa face to face mau gigil kat situ.whoaaa!! very suprisezz when i 'terjumpa' ur blog BRO!harap2 bro afdlin konsisten dlm dlm meng-updet blog nih coz saya adalah ur kipas keras mati.mmg ari2 wajib mai menyinggah kat sini.wish u luck n i will go to cinema.watching gol n gincu.terujaaa siott.bye

wanserdang said...

hello. 1st time 'hiri'. saya pernah ada roommate thai yg tgh exchange student programme masa di itm perlis a few years ago. he has this quality (tak tau apa dia) yg made him boleh buat orang senang hati dengan dia, which similar or probably better than a small group of top 'sanguine' (friendly) msian students yg ada di kampus tu at that time.

Kalau ada satu benda saja yg saya belajar drpd dia, it would be "kalau aku nak maju, aku nak bawa sebanyak mungkin org bersama aku". I've seen it once, and I'm seeing it here, in this blog. Long-live malaysian movies :)

greena said...

hi afdlin, security guard tanya apsal you gemuk??? ajak dia lawan futsal ah! mala'un betul s.guard tu.

walkthrulife said...

everybody is unique in their own way sebab tu tak ada DNA yag sama.

i like this quote..nanti nak pinjam, to be pasted kat my blog

"Whatever wrong a person does to you, just ask yourself, "if the person knew better at THAT POINT IN TIME, do you think he will still do what he did?"

The Visitor said...

there is a "Mawi thang" going on in Malaysian Idol oso. Si rocker Faizul is also the symbol of the common man done good. he got a lot of fans, man.

jang said...

Afdlin,
You too have the x-factor. I enjoyed your comedy, ada kelainan.
On the Thais, dah lama tak ke sana. I was there twice (Bangkok). The people are friendly but nak makan susah sikit.

mega said...

Org selalu ckp kelantanese ni suka berpuak2.. Kita tak nafikan tapi kita rasa negeri2 lain pun ada gak cam tu.. But yg obvious kat IPT la, mcm afdlin ckp.. Puak2 takpe lagi tapi bila bab samseng n bomoh, mesti TERUS org PANDANG org kelantan.. Even iklan kat ERA pun, bila bab bomoh, bomoh tu ckp kelantan.. Napa la ekk?..

mega said...

Kita tak rasa puak2 sgt w/pun nenek2 kita, ada yg kelantan n thai.. sbb kita lahir n besar luar dr kelantan..(tapi kecek kelate..terror la.hahaha) Tapi kita terasa kdg2 bila ckp kampung kat kelantan je, org dah pandang lain..

gol & gincu i belum tengok. but d last malay movie i watched was 'sepet' sbb... sister i bg 4 complimentary passes tgv ipoh yg dia dapat (she's a media planner in one of d well known advertising company in kl). other sbb was that my brother was the music editor of d movie. wonder whether u've worked with him ;)

Zack said...

Yup, Visitor, me being one of em. Am REALLY pissed off by Paul that day,I just turn off the TV. Bagus sgt ka hang tu, pi ckp- 'Faizull was so stupid', gosh. Anyway, this round of MI is not as good as the first one, though. Sampai sekarang pun I dunno sapa yg layak digelar MI.

Bro Afdlin, let the guard be la. Methinks kan, kalau kita hantam dia balik, we're just like them, u know. btw, loved the promo on GGPR dlm URTV baru nih. Meriah! Wuih, terasa cam nak tgk pulak...

azyze gomez said...

the visitor, right on!

Where Mawi filled in the nasyid-boy-next-door gap, Faizul is the abang-rock-goreng-gitar-tepi-jalan guy.

I hope he makes it, at least to final 5. While I do realise that Faizul is mr rock all the way (and some ppl have questioned his ability to 'pop' his way up), he deserves to be up there - he's one of the only few people that can actually sing.

I think too much talent has been eliminated, and someone has to do something before we crown a mr/ms ToneDeaf as our next MI.

And if Faizul wins? Kenapa tidak? Kembalikan kegemilangan zaman rock kapak berkualiti!anytime better than all the Sting/stong/stuing groups out there.


p/s afdlin, u have any plans for a new album? need some funky jazz please ;)

LMj said...

agreed.. agreed.. both mawi and faizul has their on unique personally and i mean u too afdlin. in fact each and everyone of us. cuma tak sumua la femes amos kan?

dats why kita yg ala-ala ordinary people ni suka dgn an icon thats really reflect us, or what we wanna be.

nasik said...

a ah la bang.. badan dah naik.. hehehe.. anyway, between G&G and ungu violet, bukan tak nak sokong filem malaysia, tapi terlalu rileks sampai xde trill. kena tunggu baik punyer cilok kot.

Hanifeeza said...

Mawi - jgn marah dah ramai org mengaku datang dari Felda
Faizul - great talent tapi dia pernah buat statement org tak pandang dia sebab dia tak hensem.
Kalau Mawi boleh menang, kenapa tidak Faizul?
Tapi setakat atas pentas, nanti buat album ramailah yg cari cetak rompak atau down load dari internet aje... percayalah

The Visitor said...

Zack, we shouldn't just dismiss criticisms like that. i have always found that Paul Moss is the one who makes a lot of sense compared to the other two judges. he always has a point. this is a problem with our music and movie industries. when someone criticises something or someone, if we don't like the sound of it, we just dismiss it. that is so wrong, and will not contribute to the growth of the industries. no one is perfect, therefore any constructive criticism is, and should be, welcome.

i did not watch that episode, but i am sure Paul must have meant that Faizul had made a silly mistake that week. i'm sure he didn't mean Faizul is "stupid" per se.

having said that, i also hope Faizul makes it to the end. he is not pretentious and doesn't pander to the pop-glamour sh*t. and he always seems like he's having fun. and yes, he can sing.

i only dislike the comments about him not being handsome and that he should lose weight. what does that have to do with talent??? there are a lot of successful singers who are on the "weighty" side and are not good-looking.

rain said...

Bro, aku pernah rasa ape yg ko rasa..I mean pasal pak guard or makguard..whatever....ia mengajar kita macammana nak hormat pada perasaan orang lain...PADULI kan org2 yg mcm ni...biar kita hormat org lain and jgn kita jadi kuang haja..

talking bout Gol and Gincu....Fazura and Sazzy is smokin' hot!!!..love them!...This kind of movie is im waiting for....hidup felem melayu!!!

i should say that this blog is so far yg paling best ( after dinna zaman closed her gongkapas times)..
a zillion of thanks coz u make my day-after stressssssssssssssssssssss giller kat office nie....

azmi | 2¢ said...

Hey there.. My first time commenting here..

I could see AsiaWorks got a FREE plug-in(s) here in your blog! Haha.. ;-) (Anyway, been there and done that too dude)

Regarding Mawi, I was never a big fan of him.. (my thoughts can be found here: <http://duasen.blogspot.com/2005/08/this-af-thing.html> ..), but anyway, it IS certainly interesting to see the whole issue in a totally different perspective. And you certainly said it well in your entry. Respect!

Arin said...

bri afdlin..mawi tuh satu benda yang lain dari yang lain kat negara kite nih..tu pasal semua cam terpegun ngan kewujudan dia..heheh..by the way..bro afdlin..u pon lain dari yang lain..lawak hang ..cerita hang best woo..lain dari yang lain.. :)

mitochondria said...

Hi afdlin! It was mindboggling that i found your blog. I was bloghopping and glad i found it. I agree with you on the 'TSUMAWI' phenomenon, but what dissapoint me is that, it also worry me on how it will affect the younger 'Malay' generation. I am afraid that the children / teenager will think that in order to succeed u have to be famous / glamour. And i certainly do not agree with them wearing the 'jubah' for the so called 'graduation'. I think it is misleading (for the kids especially). I am so afraid if one day our kids aspire to grow becoming an AF student. (I don't mind if they say becoming like mawi - as a person). It will be heartbreaking.

I learn about Mawi from newspaper coz i don't really watch AF. But after the big 'huha' bout this guy i start to check out the repeat at channel 15. Maybe its true, maybe a lot of us 'malay' can relate to this boy next door.

I just hope he won't forget his root. To quote Abraham lincoln "Every man can go through the hard time in his life, but to test a man's character - give him power"

shit! this is bloody long. sorry for that afdlin.

Love Lynn said...

when one says not-so-nice things to one is only for one reason : ENVY.just because they can't be like you..hurting you emotionally is enuff.thats how i see it and it always makes me fell better :-)

salam n hye
erks? cmner bleh tersesat kt sini erks? btw.. ni btoi2 ka abg afdlin yg besh tue erk? kekekke

mawi mmg org bese.. but dia cm der aura.. xtaw ler naper ly pn terjoin suker kt dia.. kekekkekek

world! world! world!

nelly said...

afdlin, one question since u penah jadi pengkritik af a few times..y eh, pengkritik2 af3 ni slalu cam takut2 je nak criticize mawi, even tho performance dia mmg obviously not so good?

anyway,i could never understand before y ppl like him so much, but your writing shed some light on this for me..

btw..glad i found this blog! always been a big fan, n this really gives an insight of what's really brewing in that head of yours! update regularly, k... ;p

Liza said...

When you are discussing Mawi, rest assured that it's going to be a long and tedious process. Yeah you are right, it's because people could relate to him. Not just kampong people but educated and powerful people as well have found him irresistible.

Congratulation! It's a nice blog.

ayobkelubi said...

faizull rockkkkkkkkkkkkk!!.

tapi arial umah aku patah.tak dapat tgk 8tv berapa lama dah nie.

uwaaaaaaaaaaa

cyberdad said...

bloghopped and found your blog.. mmg selambakodok la lu brother. keep on writing, pls.

my 'tabik spring' to you because you still tak marah over the 'tak sayang mulut' punya pak guard.. and your willingness to learn from the 'so-called' junior in showbiz..

lenkali main futsal ajakla sekali, nak gak jadi extra pegang tombak dlm next coming film :) (just kidding!)

And fyi to all bloggers yg tak tau, Dina Zaman is back at http://rohasewok.blogspot.com I'm so glad she's back!

I dont know about AF and I dont know who Mawi is, but I guess it is just a typical malaysian phenomenon. Once suka orang tu, of course akan di sanjung gila gila, macam akak Siti kita jugak. But once esok ada buat salah ke, or ada tersilap kat mana mana, abih la ..kena kutok from a-z.

But incek Afdlin, am waiting for your next Buli Balik and cant wait. I could watch Buli from time to time and never get bored macam citer P Ramlee jugak.

tak sabar nak tunggu Buli Balik, mesti best...ermm is there any possibility Ah-ha will be back on TV???

missunderstoodme said...

Assalamualaikum bro Afdlin.. good to see you are back and blogging.. saya sangat setuju.. there's no place like home.. apa saja yg melanda .. jerebu ke, isu AP ke, tsunami ke, tsumawi ke.. home is home.. though it will be nice just to see a bit of the world. your words in this postings were enlightening.. to some extend, it explains why MAWI became their favourite. (dulu MAWI ni favourite jugak, before Felix). its a WORLD phenomena.. kenapa tak Felix atau Amylea atau Marsha.. why MAWI.. nah, di sini jawapannya..

Edd said...

the visitor.. i agree with u about malaysian and criticism. I do feel that ppl should stand up for themselves if they are wrongly criticise but most Malaysian tend to get really 'perongos' when they are being criticise.
I also agree that mostly what Paul Moss said is absolutely true. He's just like Simon in American Idol. His prediction is always right. Paul may be a little bit rude sometimes but that's just his way.

btw, go look up in the malay dictionary for the meaning of the word 'perongos'.

ohhh.. diam2 rupanya2 ada niat nak buat blogggg!! its good to see you around us like this! selambakodok man! hahahahahahahah. im still thinking to put the link of your blog in honeybiru.org. if i do, would you compose me a (comedy) background song, for my 1 minute 3d animation final project (sungguh tak ikhlas!)????

Helo afdlin,

hehe kelakar. anyway mana u tahu yg org thai tuh tak mau tegur u the way pak guard tu tegur u.. cuma dia taknak kenal ajer u.. they do business of coz maa, they want ur money , atleast an idea.. heheh pakcik tuh tegur sekadar bermesra jee.. relek la bro.. dah mmg mcm tuh nak what cam ner. kalau tak mau sgt, set ur dream.. (mcm MAWI)make it true. a dream for big daddy to turn to whatever u want people todescribe u. mm anyway buat apa pedulik org ckp kan..? selambakodok babe..

kalau geram sgt.. masuk gym lahh.. jom gi skali. bdn ku pun agak menakutkan.. hahaha dari bulan kesebulan mcm kena pam..

set in ur mind. I want achieve healthy weight. kalau besar sgt pun sakit, takut apa yg u impikan tak sempat nak buat plakk..heheh bleh ke.?

Tq for reading..

Amir EtCetera said...

So, The Mawi Phenomenon definitely not over yet eh?

Here's a thought..

if Dewa's hard core fan is called BALADEWA (apa ke bala laa..)

if SO7 fans is called Sheilagank

then I think Mawi's Hard core would better be called MAWAS..

Cool?

Nice blog here bro..

anisism said...

it's true what u said about being elsewhere to appreciate home more. being abroad all alone with no MAWI whatsoever phenomenon (or a new power+responsibilities as u put it as), gives you a whole lot of wonderous things before you, and then gives you a lil bit more taste to ur appetite.

and by the way, gemok ke tak gemok ke, pak guard tu ke yang bagi u makan nasi?

hi afdlin,
i came across your blog on 15th aug 05...since tt, everyday i visit but it was not updated until 2day. welcome back..btw

i try not to miss Ah-ha on tv...best. kekadang tgok repeat episode pun...still buleh tergelak. sll nye...cerita yg i tgok bnyk2 kali still boleh tergelak ni....mcm cerita pendekar bujang lapok and Mr. Bean.

Even my father (he is a retired teacher) whom i deeply respect and normally reserve his compliment, sd that Ah-ha is good ..in its own way..to invite kids to speak english...yelah..cam ne nak gelak kalau tak faham.

Afdlin....you kalau jadi host pun i suka lah.

an ordinary malaysian said...

afdlin, walopun kau gemuk, kau lelaki, comei plak dan ada bakat. tak seteruk kena mcm org perempuan:-
* yg gemuk (walopun tak lalu dan tak pernah makan nasi seumur hidup), dan
* tak ada bakat, dan
* tak cun, dan
* telinga pekak (org cam ni sentiasa jadi universal joke), dan
*pakai spek (yg ni dah berkurang kot joke dia).

so, alhamdulillah la kau setakat gemuk je. lagipun apa lorat, bini sayang, anak sayang, peminat sayang.
yg tu yg penting, kan?

hehe..tapi telinga pekak tu hikmah jugak..tak la selalu dengaq org kat kita gemuk..tak la sakit hati, kan.

Betul kata afdlin, kita akan sedar how great our country bila kita kuar negera org. Saya baru 6 bulan stay pindah ke US atas urusan ikut hubby keje kat cini. Arh... rindu giler kat Malaysia. Wpun nampak US ni mcm canggih je... hebat je... tapi Msia lagi world bg bagi saya. Miss kat msia so much...

Gemuk??? Tak kisah la tuh... yg penting hepi.

Hi Afdlin
Baru je tau kewujudan blog ni. Tu pun sebab ada cerita Mawi so fans dia dok fwd2kan url blog nih.

Good blog anyway, keep up updating. Jangan le tinggal bersawang eks blog ni :D

But i still can't find the x-factor in Mawi. Seriously. He's just an average guy.

maybe ni semua rejeki dia lah tu.
ngehehehehe.. keji, keji :P

I'm not a fan of Mawi sbb I voted for Amylea..but I totally agree with u on Mawi. To me, he is the Hero for the Malays...sbb tu ramai org vote dia from the Makciks, Pakciks, Kakak2, Abang2 & the adik2s.

i would prefer this one

"With great power, comes with great opportunity."

Is said...

Kau kata: MAWI to me is not just a phenomenon. MAWI is a lesson, a greater power is trying to teach us. I feel people want to connect with someone who is real. I feel the malays want to champion someone who they can identify with, who potrays the common people, with the same values they have. Is the boy next door, themselves going against the odds.

Aku kata: Exactly so. Benda nie benda yang sama aku pikir. Aku nampak macam kepala otak kau dan kepala hangguk aku hampir2 matching. aku rasa betul, people try to as much as possible associate something to themselves. Tehy cannot be famous, but they want to relate someone/thing famous to them. Sebab tu org suka superman, dia tu clumsy, pakai cermin mata, nerd, tapi ada power, ada awek cun... ala aku tau sebab aku pun tulis skrip cerita2 camnie.. hehehe

anyhow, aku rasa kau boleh jadi idola gak... kalau kena gayanya..

The phenomenon, the way I see it is actually started by the religious sentiments being used by Astro to promote him in the beginning. I seriously don’t think there’ll be anything like this if he were just a very talented, but plain, poor felda boy and not have the ex-qari, guru mengaji, etc. in his cv…

Forgive me if I’m wrong, but in my opinon, we tend to be suckers to religious sentiments…

srox said...

zazhzick,

Mungkin betul jugak.BTW,Does it mean yang Malaysian dah beralih ke arah religious sentiments?...part of it yes,tapi aku rasa apa yang abg kodok cakap tuh betul .We tend to connect to someone "real"..and MAWI , no doubt ..represent a "real" us..

salam,

lama dah tak jenguk kat sini... lama dah tak tengok ko in real life. zaman student di bukit ilmu dulu lain, now dah lain.. kembang sikit (mmm banyak jugak la), hehe. jgn mareee.

recently aku balik malaya kejap, sempat gi torak2 bebudak di bukit sana, tunjuk kerje sikit2, bagi peransang.

anyway, all the very best...
