1- Affaaa - Typically used to express disappointment

2- Bal! - An expression of shock or excitement - Watch out when you use it though, because it's kind of like the polar opposite of "MashAllah"
3- Aaaaah - It's a mix between a 'no way' and a 'woah!' 
4- Tut - now this one isn't really polite. So don't use this often, but you'll see this being used. It means 'no', but it also is a sound used to express frustration.
5- HaHaay! - This is a sarcastic laugh. Use this when you want to let the other person know that you'd rather laugh at a brick wall.
