Earlier this month, Irfan’s cousin Aiman came to join Irfan for a quick dunk in the pool. Ain whipped up some bihun goreng with keropok, and off we went to a mini-picnic. Aiman came prepared with arm floats and trunks. At first he eyes the giant bathtub, probably wondering if it was scientifically possible to have a bathtub that big.

Then, his dad, also known as Irfan’s Ayah Long, began submergence procedure. Theoretically, he would not be taken to crush depth. Not even on a lark.

Meanwhile, the elder Irfan orbits his cousin, at the same time having his own brand of fun. Splashing water. Spinning in the pool. Couple of other stuff too…[[image:2009-03-aiman-swims03.jpg:It was a nice, sunny day:center:0]]
Thanks to Youtube, Irfan now knows the Mark Harris style of propelling yourself through the water. It still needs work, though.[[image:2009-03-aiman-swims04.jpg:Irfan makes like a torpedo… and… uh, torpedos… stuff:center:0]]
Somehow, Aiman decides that much water being held together artificially is… unnatural. Creepy. Perhaps, unholy even.[[image:2009-03-aiman-swims05.jpg:I weep for… me:center:0]]
So he sits out the mission and consumes mass quantities of keropok.[[image:2009-03-aiman-swims06.jpg:Munch munch:center:0]]
Ultimately, Aiman is satisfied with the excursion.[[image:2009-03-aiman-swims07.jpg:Am I dry? Good.:center:0]]
