Hadi Afiq “Paroi” Bin Mohammad Tahir is one spirited steamer that his viewers can’t help but be drawn to. It’s no wonder the Malaysian Facebook Gaming Creator has amassed his own following who dubbed themselves the Paroi Army, a testament to their unwavering support to their favourite video game streamer. After all, the family man genuinely loves what he does, regularly streaming Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) whilst role-playing as both Team Malaysia and a commentator that surely entertains anyone who watches his streams.

Arabic, so I can understand the Qur'an better and communicate with Arabs.
I like bathing late in the day, but brush my teeth super early in the morning. My eating is a bit irregular also - I don’t eat a lot during the day, but it’s a different story at night.
