Yaayy, I didn't succkk!!.....
Wooo hooo, my third International gig (my first one was in Nepal and second in Singapore) in HongKong and i rawk the hausssss!!! My Standup material tonight included the reason i am fat, why Datuk Samy Vellu is still in office, why my wife decided to marry a fat boy, what is good about being fat, the problem fat people have shopping in malaysia, my fear of airports and immigration and why i love siti so muuch.
I swear to you before the show i was macam 'KALAU TOREH MUKA PUN DARAH TAK KELUAR' or dalam bahasa jermannya 'pucat gigi'. It has been a while since i've done a standup show kerana concentrate on my movie making jer. BUT I am back baybee!! the king isss Back!!!
Actually i even surprised myself, i was very calm and very fluid in my delivery. You could have thrown me anything and i could have turned it into a joke.... BEST GILA SIUT when you do a good show that people enjoy themselves, lebih-lebih lagi when it's an international audience.) I notice even the subtle stuff also they got. Best siut.
I guess this is why i love to perform infront of a crowd, i enjoy seeing their reaction, their smiles, their laughter and when i do good, the payoff as a performer is unbelievable... you feel like you could walk on water (but it is highly unadvisable)!
And the money is great too.
i have always believed that when you love what you're doing, it never seems like work, it's always fun and when you get paid it feels like "what?? and you're paying me to have fun too?"... "you people are out of your mind!!!"
SO WHY DO SOMETHING YOU DON"T LOVE?
Power to the people.

Yihaaaaaaa....waa..mesti performance dush2 punyer nih..
haa,,,aperlagi marilah belanja slumberkodoks semua mkn rojak..aa..jom2..

Passion is always the number one key that motivates anyone to do better. Well as long as passion comes before money, it's definately going to be a well worthy experience.
So it's all good :) Or atleast the reward is far greater :)
Keep rocking on Afdlin!
heheh! teringat stand up gig "why you so fat" yang you buat dua/tiga tahun lepas! memang rokk da hausss habis!
without a doubt we know or at least i know you can entertain people in all kind of ways. that 'thing' just runs in you.. ;-)hilang seme penat & tension keje if people enjoy our masterpiece..

3. Not as funny as Kodok
4. Not a hot chick that can find a Datuk
5. Dad not rich enough
6. Share market sucks
7. Azizi Ali kelentong lebeh, jual buku only
8. Crony jobs all taken
9. Still looking for "Anak Menteri"
10. Waiting for opening in Ah Long from Bukit Beruntung the Movie, "nak jadi polis kejar kodok"!

hey afdlin!! one of my all time favourite joke is the one you told some years ago... about the 'Negaraku'... why malaysians don't win gold medals at the olympics... coz malu with the anthem! hahaha! i guess the country heard you... and the song has been changed! i sometimes use that joke during my lectures to motivate those bladdy college students! hahaha!! (i hope you don't mind... copyright issues and all!)
hmm...do what you love and love will be with you...hmm... what's the update on the film project?
hey guys! ( sorry this is not for u abang ),
to tell da truth, i'm so proud + thankful + grateful to u guys la, giving him full supports, feedback, loves..
u guys memang best giler! u made him happy, not just happy, opps... hilang akal !! he managed to reach out to lots of us, rasa macam kat sebelah dia je.. Gua sendiri lak yang happy, memang pun, bila dia happy, gua macam nak tercabut kepala rasa happy!
Afdlin - He always does what he loves most, and that what made me respect him. That's one of the reasons why i keep on forward!
Afdlin da mannnn!! - full of love.... luv u lah!
Terima kasih, Terima kasih, Terima kasih!
p/s: kodok kejora, ejaannya AFDLIN la... dlm bahasa arab maksudnya Afdal..
i'm glad we had fun, great trip to Hong Kong. Let's do it again! boley shopping sakan, kali ni kita survey dulu kat mana halal restaurant k,
Tahniah untuk Bro. Kodok. Sejak menang Skrin ni, mencanak-canak pula jemputan datang. Sampai ke Hong Kong! Bila pula nak datang KK Bro?
* Chris, langadon no ot tulun Sabah montok di kodok nu! :)
Unfortunately kat Malaysia ni doing what you love very rarely puts the grocery in the fridge.
What to do? :)
Le Kimster of Kuala Lumpur
You lucky cekodok you! You get paid doing things you love *grrrrrr*
*sigh* i wish i can say the same about myself *sigh*
i tumpang gumbira.. ( ada tak gambar kodok tgh menari.. heheheh)
Hi Chief Kodok,
Why not produce your material in CDs? Buat la recording kat Actors Studio ke (get the 'live' audience 'feel').
There's no stand-up comedy CD release in Malaysia (setahu aku la...). Why not be the first? Maybe pair dgn Harith Iskandar ke, sure meletup.
The last one I heard was on cassette by Pak Jamali Shadat.
teringat masa show ngan abn amro dulu... memang best gilos!!
Congratulations on your successful show in Hong Kong! Am sure your wife would have been very proud of his 'budak gemuk'.
The wonderful thing about 'budak gemuks' are they are full of ideas, lots of humor, great eaters, sound sleepers (although the sounds coming out while sleeping is torturous..hehs), full of love, gentle, romantic, passionate, they make good and comfortable 'bantal peluks' and i could go on and on...
How do i know these? My beloved half is gemuk and my brothers are gemuks too! And they are all so adorable!
So there afdlin, you dont have to wonder why your wife chooses you to be her life long partner. Dig?
All the best to you and go get 'em!
alhamdulillah... heppi gak eh chif... sambil tu, carik rejeki yg halalll... ehehehe..
semorang nak cenggitu, tapi ape kan daye, kebanyakan dr kitorang ni talent tak baper siap... ehhehe... kalau nak harap muke jer, baik carik makan kat disko...
eniweh, bikos mai telent is not gud inaf, ai sappot pipel laik chif laa... lets du samting tugeder-geder en get sam telented tings dan. (andesten or not?) ehehehe...
FAWER TU DE FIFEL !!!
Afdlin, i luv your jokes, the way you joke it and the story of the joke. And i luve your acting, the way you act and the story you made.
BUT am still trying to like you singing...
oh man.. being fat owes have de fun. being thin really a bore sometimes. :(
Whenever i open-up ur Blog, it has all these strange characters!
Can't read. have to copy then paste in Word Doc to change the 'Fonts'.
Maybe it was written in some cekodok languange tak?
hi again abg adflin. nak minta tolong u and sumer bloggers kat sini. PLs sign the SPCA petition kat www.spca.org.my .. we need at least 100,000 signatures ~ appeals for amendments to the law protecting animals in Malaysia. The animals need your help, pls. Tq again.
Abang Afdlin, list down kan lah the facts why you so fat for us yang tak berpeluang tengok you perform, boleh kan???
Keep on doing what you've been doing, cause you sure look very good at it.
As for your question, what do you like about being fat? I heard that today on a radio. Well, eventhough I am not fat myself, I do know that chubby people are really cute, very cuddly, mostly very funny yet a sensitive being and they are appreciative of everything that they have which makes them a good companion. Those are the most positive things I found in big-sized people.
syoknyer g obersi....
p/s: der terjumpa dgn sammy cheng dak? huhuh
lelaki yang pegang gitar tu rasanya nama dia pacai . betul tak ? . kirim salam kat dia . aku sekolah form 1 sampai form 3 satu kelas dgn dia (di kota tinggi johor) .
