Light Fiesta ( 18/02/2006 )

Another Saturday night, but it seems that this one will never become boring as before. Well, me and a few of my friends already bought a ticket to Fiesta Cahaya or Light Fiesta.
I didn’t know actually what this fiesta for… I know that they will be a lot of beautiful light, maybe, and a lot of dancing. It is one of the Indian celebrations, and I didn’t know actually why it is held. But it sure will fill empty Saturday night.

I hope that this fiesta is better than Pesta Angpow ( Chinese celebrations) that held a month before. And if I compare Pesta Angpow preparations is much better than this Light Fiesta. But I’m still waiting for a lot of surprise and excitement in it.

Well, to be honest, lots of my friends said that Pesta Angpow is boring…and last year Light Fiesta is sucks, thus as an hypothesis, this year Light Fiesta also must be sucks.
Light Fiesta and Pesta Angpow were held every year here in Universiti Malaysia Sabah by two differenet community that are India and Chinese community respectively. And I’m as a Malay have a chance to watch both of them. That is the unique thing about Malaysia ..ermmm… correction….Sabah! Only here in Sabah all races can live together and enjoy everything together. It is more likely that any other part in Malaysia were not like Sabah. It’s wrong to say that all races live peacefully and harmony together in Malaysia, well actually I think in Malaysia they only live together but to live harmony and peacefully we must say only in Sabah. Am I right? Anyone did not agree…than research for it. You’ll find the true. Even when I say I want to go to Light Fiesta to one fella from outside of sabah (don’t want to tell la which part of Malaysia), he said to me that Muslim cannot go that fiesta. What the heck? Muslim must be sit under tempurung ka? And even non- Sabah Chinese majority of them don’t want to go to this fiesta to support Indian Community. Well, Sabah is not like this actually but people from outside still don’t understand Sabah.

Proud to say, I’m also considered as a Sabahan ( even though I’m from Labuan- a small island near sabah that had become a federal territory so most people said that Labuan is not a part of sabah, but geographically, it is). As a Sabahan, I celeberate almost everything but I still stick to my religion but I found it is interesting to live with other religion. No religion is better in our eyes, only God knows, and please believe what you want to believe.

Okay, back to the story, so I went to this fiesta with 4 of my Sabahan( Sabah’s people) friends and 4 of them from Peninsular Malaysia. Well actually not all people from outside Sabah are the same. 4 of my friends from Peninsular Malaysia but still they come with us to this fiesta. And they all Muslim.

That night was crowded, we pay RM7 for a ticket so I hope that I will not be disappointed of it. And in the entrance to the main hall of the fiesta, they are coloured hulled rice that designed into a beautiful pattern, it’s abstract but still beautiful. It is a good sign maybe. Perhaps the show will be much better than this.To shorten this story, I tell you all that I’m very satisfied with the show. This Fiesta is the Best since I joined this University. Some of my friends said that it was better than Pesta Angpow. Not to compare, but that’s the way to express what they feel that night.

Very great. That’s all I can say. The dancing, the surprises, joke, the lights, music, almost every part of the show keeps giving me more and more excitement until the end. What a great show it is. And I did not realize so much talented dancers in University Malaysia Sabah. No one can beat Indian dance. Thay culture dance and modern dance, both I like it. I don’t like to watch all kind of dance before ( my mother use to be a dancer and a dance teacher so I already boring to see people dance) but this time I stick two thumb up. Best!

Congratulations to the Indian community that held this wonderful show. I never suspect that RM7 ticket can give me a lot of excitement that night. More than 3 hours show that did not get me boring ( except some of them such as Multicultural dance). Multicurtural dance a little boring but the whole show is great.

Hmm.. I hope later there will be more like this kind of show. Its really change my Saturday night into a colourful one. All of us went back from the show with a big smile and a lot of story to tell.

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.

Master in Pathology (Malaysia): A Guide To Apply.

Well, I got carried away in previous post talking about my experience taking entrance exam for Master in Pathology. You can check it here:

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…

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…
