Master In Pathology: My Experience Entrance Exam That was not my first attention on trying to write such post. My intention was to share on how to get into that entrance exam in the first place. So here it is. A step by step guide on how to get yourself into the entrance exam. 
A Guide to Apply for Master in Pathology (Mpath) 
1. Make up your mind. I've seen a few of my friends who apply for this pathway and get confused before it begin. Ask yourself, are you really interested in Pathology? Do you know what pathology is? Do you know what kind of work are you going to do in Pathology. 
Most of the time, people thought pathology MO or specialist were all just sitting down drinking coffee and chit chat all day long. No work to do. Think again. The best thing to do is to get yourself into the department itself. Work as a pathology MO first, in a few…

Death to all those who steal!

When we were busy visiting interesting places in KL with my wife, someone decided to break into our house in Sabah and steal our stuff. I can't believe that it's finally happening to me. I've heard so many story regarding burglary cases in my apartment area and I believe that by those cases, the security and management, the police, and whoever involved in trying to solve this problem, already learn their lesson and try to fix the problem.

Nothing has been done. Cases of burglaries are on the rise. It seems that no one have a solution for it. That is unacceptable. But no matter how many grunts I wrote, people will always said that they are doing their best to reduce the crime rate, but the results were the opposites.

When my wife arrived at our home in Putatan, she was really shocked to see that our door were damaged and everything inside the house was thrashed. How could people be this evil. I never show off my wealth, I never disturb anyone, but yet, someone decided to do…

Who Watches Wrestling anymore?: Rumble To Wrestlemania 2017.

Who took a day leave just to stay at home and watch Wrestlemania? I did that once.

Who watches wrestling anymore? I do. It's an option and no one should be judge on whatever they want to watch. Someone love watching those malay drama on Tv3 and someone love to watch wrestling on WWE network. Both are not real, but both can be entertaining that's for sure. I do not watch those drama anyway but my wife love it.

Last year, I took a day off to watch Wrestlemania Live. This year, I do not plan to do that, but I am still going to watch it, maybe just the replay. The problem with Wrestling shows and also most of the sports show, or any Live show from the west, they always hold it on Sunday night which equals to monday morning in Malaysia. I wonder why they choose Sunday night and not Saturday night. Did American be able to go to work the next morning after the show? Just curious.

Anyway, regarding wrestling, I am a fan of wrestling since I was a little kid. Don't bluff to me, eve…

Happy 2017 : A Wish inside an ambulance that has been granted.

Happy new year to everyone. It will be another beginning of a chapter in everyone's life.

I really hope that 2017 would be a better year even though there is already a bad news for all of us..yes, petrol price hike for January. So I believe 2017 would be another tough year for all of us who happen to be living in Malaysia.

This new year eve and count down, as usual, for me, is just a simple TV watching and fireworks hearing activity in my house. At least last year I was doing the same thing but with my family sleeping in the room, this year pretty much I am alone. What to do, have to sacrifice for master study or perhaps I should blame it to Airasia and all other airliner who set the airline ticket price so beyond the normal value during this holiday season.

And finally, all my allowance are taken officially as I am not considered working, I am a student who is being paid 'fully' just to study. Thanks government. Now I feel like I am working in my home town as they have ta…

Are you still practicing real medicine?

Medicine is like a religion. Some follow it strictly, some don't. Some just using it for money.

Just about two weeks ago, my wife asked me whether this trending therapy using gluthatione, a therapy to make your skin whiter. I have to say that I am still practicing medicine in a real way. It's not my expertise but I am not pretty sure what Gluthathione is good for?

My encounter with this Gluthathione thing was when I read my text book on liver disease. Well those who lack of this enzyme will be more prone to get liver toxicity due to paracetamol poisoning. Something like that. And obviously if you read on physiology an biochemistry, you will encounter with this thing. It's a essential substances in our body.

Ammonium is also essential in our cell metabolism but do we drink ammonium for health reason? That would be crazy. A lot of substances in our body are actually toxic but due to their micro amount, we manage to utilized them perfectly. Nature was a beauty.

Master in Pathology Entrance Exam: Interview Part.

Congratulations to all that pass Master in Pathology Entrance Exam which was held on 14 December 2016. For those who does not, do not worry, there will be another one next year. There are no limit on taking this exam so it will be all good.

I would also like to congratulate my wife on passing that exam. She was planning on taking Chemical pathology. Well, I believe if she does enter next June, our family would be a pathological family. Just remember, there is nothing pathological about a pathologist. This is why most pathologist are kind and warm hearted person. The pathological person usually will not become a pathologist. It could be good to our family then.

So after the entrance Exam which was held in my place of study now, UKM, I met a few friends and colleague who have gone through the exam and the interview. Well, most who pass concern about their interview score. Most of them panicked during the interview and give all sort of funny answer. I was planning to write on the intervi…

Birthday Prank: SMSL 2003 memory...

As I read some of my earliest blogpost entry since 2006, I have a feeling that somehow life is so interesting. What I wrote about the current issue, politics, music, medicine, were just providing fact and information for readers out there who are seeking for it. My real passion in writing is to write about those interesting experience in my life. The thing that I wanted to share. Half of me wanted to give information, half of me just want to share. 
Today, I suddenly remember regarding a story that happen 13 years ago. A story that most of the people who are involved will never forget. This story happen when I was in Form 5, at Sekolah Menengah Sains Labuan (SMSL). It happen because of one person. We call him Buyut.

So do you all know that during my time, it was 2003, there were a tradition in our boarding school where everyone will prank you during your birthday. This tradition was prohibited by the school because it cost too much 'damage'. People would just thrashed out eve…

Master in Pathology: Which University to choose?

Once you have decided to do master in pathology,  one thing will comes into your mind before anything else.  Before you even bother to choose which specialty you want to do,  or which book you want to buy, you will have to decide which university you would like to enroll to. 
It seems like an easy task, it was not.  Your choice will affect your life for the next 4 years.  You should remember that you cannot change it after you have accepted to that university.  It was the same like how you choose your university during your undergraduate time.  Only now,  there were only a few universities which offer postgraduate study in pathology.  Leave the overseas universities behind(Government won't sponsor you to go oversea nowadays in this economy).  Local universities are not that bad.  We are actually pretty good in producing a competent pathologist. 
In Malaysia,  there are only 5 universities that offer pathology for postgraduate study.  Here are the list
