Joy of riding bus

Some people think i'm weird, because i wait for bus every day....

What kind of sentence is that? There is nothing weird about a guy who love to ride bus rather than take a lift with his friends car or motorcyle.

Almost all of my friends already have their own transport today. They no longer for bus every morning. I have a few friends with me waiting for bus every morning. Sometimes i wait for bus with my roomate.

Many people told me to go and buy one vehicle for myself but i say no.

If i want to ride a car to the class or ride a motorbike, i can just ask a lift from my friends. But i don't want to. Because, after entering Universiti Malaysia Sabah, I finally discovered some feeling, a satiety feeling when riding a bus.

Before this, when i was still in my hometown Labuan, i seldomly ride a bus because i have my own car. So everywhere i go, i use my car. I think driving is very fun. I like driving. I drive a lot on weekend, went to town, Beach, everywhere around Labuan Island.

Universiti Malaysia Sabah

After entering UMS, i have no choice rather than take a bus to the class ot to the town. At first, i feel this is a big big problem and i feel it is very difficult. I have to wait for a long long time before the bus come. Have to wake up early in the morning.

But why now, when i have a choice wether take a bus or ride with my friend's car, i choose bus?

The cardinal reason are, i enjoy riding a bus.

First, i wake up early in the morning. I feel very hard to wake up and i feel very lazy to get up from my bed. Thentake a cool, very very cool shower. Then prepare myself to go to the bus stop while my roomate is still in their dream. Then, i walk down the hill to the bus stop. There will be a lot of people there. Lots of people. Then i wait......
And wait...keep waiting.

Then i feel a little angry, "WHY THE BUS STILL NOT COMING!"

Then i heard other people also feel what i feel. Everyone start to sigh.
Everyone start asking, where is the bus?

Suddenly the bus will appear, and some unexplain feeling emerge in me.

Then, all the people at the bus stop, start to push each other to get into the bus. Sometimes it's very hard to get into thebus since there is so much people there and there is only one bus. And i hate when some guy start to show off and become gentlemen and let girls enter the bus first. What the heck? This is not a perfect time to show your kindness, or to win girls heart, this is a WAR. If you did not get into the bus, then you will be late and you are doom. I can say, stupid to all the guys that act this kind of way.

If you want to become gentlemen, then become one in the correct way. Don't hurt women, don't play their feelings. don't hate them, talk nice with them. Help them if they need help ( no one ask help to ride a bus accept handicapped), give them flowers if you like.

But in this situation while you are trying to get into the bus, should you let all girls enter first while there are a lot of boys behind you. You no what girls will think if you do like that? They say "haha, i'm very lucky today because of that stupid guy".

For me, just get into the bus as soon as possible so the bus wil never leave you. And don't push girls, because we will hurt them if we do so. No need to show off that you are a gentlemen la...

Fuh... finally after a tough condition. o manage to get into the bus. very tough.
Then i look for a seat. And if i found it, i will sit down, and feel very satisfy. And that unexplain feeling appear again. I love that feeling. I don't know how to describe it but i enjoy it. Its like a feeling when you have to do a lot of hard work before you get your payment.

This feeling that keeps me waiting for bus everyday. cause i enjoy it. It's the joy of riding a bus. I feel very happy along the way to the class everyday because of this.

Thatz why i don't want to ride my friend's vehicle. I want to enjoy this feeling as mush as i can. Maybe someday the feeling will dissappear, t think so. So now, i have to enjoy it before its gone.

So next time, when my friends ask me why i always take a bus to the class? I'll say, i enjoy it. And i can't explain until you get this feeling on your own.

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

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…

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
