Fipper the Slipper

Have you heard about the brand name Fipper?
Fipper is a brand for a slipper, or flip - flop, or selipar or anything that you might call it.
And it's kind of a cute and catchy name too.

No, i'm not here to promote Fipper or any selipar for that matter.


It's a rubber slipper, not a slip-on-rubber, if you know what i mean

This is a true story about Fipper the slipper.

I have a Fipper slipper. The girlfy bought it for me, last year or the year before that i guess.
It's cheap, less than RM15, it's comfortable, it's durable, and most importantly, it's sturdy.
By sturdy, it means that it's non-slippable, or you won't slip.
Err.. i'm still talking about a slipper.. ok?

The girlfy bought me a green Fipper and it has served me well until two months ago.
Nope, no malfunctions or defects.
It's just stolen.
And at a kenduri arwah at that (Google translator says its a 'late feast'. Or maybe a 'death feast' will make you understand better. But the word 'feast' seems just SO wrong).

Rest in peace, the green one. Missed but not forgotten.

So, i was left alone, slipper-less, Fipper-less, barefooted, and sad.
Don't get me started on how the girlfy reacts to that.
Although it might be cheap, the sentimental value is very high. hohoho

So, a few weeks after that (which was about 2 weeks ago), my sister got me a shiny brand new all-black Fipper.
Yay to the unbridled joy.
It's still cheap, and it's still sturdy.
Nice.

Fast forward to two days ago, the 1st day of the holy month of Ramadhan.
Guess what?
Come on, you know it's coming.

Black, new, shiny, and....


It's stolen again.

Yep.
I was at my bachelor pad, and all of the inhabitants(!) of the house are inside, including myself.
Naturally, at a bachelor pad, there would be many slippers lying all around the front door of the house.
But only my poor ol' Fipper is missing a.k.a stolen.

Damn, right?
Who the fuck steals a cheap bloody slipper during the broad daylight on the the first day of Ramadhan?
And who the fuck steals only one slipper while there are at least 6 pairs right there, with multiple brands (which includes another Fipper, and also a Quiksilver) all there for the taking?

Fipper oh Fipper, you're so super, you're so uber, i just want to pilfer.

I guess thieves nowadays know about quality rather than brands huh?

So, now i'm back to square one.
Lonely, slipper-less, Fipper-less, barefooted and sad.
And the sister suggests me buying selipar jepun Tat Sing.
You know, the crappy looking ones that people use to go to toilets and all.
And that is why they call it selipar jamban.

And funnily enough, i found the Fipper page on Facebook.
I quickly LIKED it, and guess what i posted on it's wall.

(and i bet there's like a million 'likes' already now, LOL)

So, now who wants to buy me a new Fipper?
