With a pile of work to do, a thousand words and facts to remember, with unfinished work everywhere, and the final examination is 3 days away, I considered my 21st birthday the worse birthday I ever had in my life.

Would it be memorable? Of course. I will remember this time forever in my life. It is normal for u to remember the great time of our life and the worse part of it. I’m expecting my 21st birthday would be the most exciting birthday in my life. Just because I feel it was really cool to be 21. It make you step further to the real world of an adult. Not a kids anymore. So I planned to hold a great party for my 21st birthday and that is 6 months ago. After 6 moths past, and my birthday was around the corner, I was a little disappointed because my birthday was not in a holiday. So I guess I have to celebrate it with my friends here in my University. But guess what, just 2 weeks before my birthday party, an announcement about our final exam was made and the final exam would start on 26th or march. 3 days after my exam. Plus there will be no study week for us and the last class is on 21 March. On 22nd March we have research proposal presentation and on 26th March ( that is on the exam day), we have to submit our written proposal to the lecturer. Great activity to ruined up my birthday party.

Stucking here with the works and 4 modules consisting Neurology and mental health, Heamatology and endocrine system, gastrointestinal system and clinical epidemiology, to be study only in 3 days before the exam.

Plus, on 23rd March, that is on my birthday, there will be a module test on Clinical Epidemiology with 20 marks carry up to the final.

There goes my 21st birthday.

Singing a birthday song along with my roommate for myself at 12 am 23rd mach 2006, I celebrate my first second of my 21 with reading a full facts paper for my clinical epidemiology paper. I was thinking, why it become so hard like this. So tough for my first minutes in my 21.

This is the intro I guess. The intro to my adult life. So I guess it will become this hard and tough for me for the next-next year. Thinking that I would enter Clinical years in Hospital later, this must be it. This must be as tough as I could imagine.

So what so special about 21st birthday? There is nothing special about it but it is meaningful, cause at the time where I was very stress and tense, there always be someone out there and in there with me. Thinking that I would never fight alone. This is the best part of my 21st birthday.

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.

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…
