Magic medicine

Ah. Time to update my blog. Time to create a new post. But... i haven't think of something to write. I have no idea. There is nothing that dissatisfy me within this few weeks.

hmm, Maybe just a little story to tell on alternative medicine. Yes. The alternative medicine. particularly the traditional one.

I'd wrote something on this issue a few months or maybe years ago on how i did not agree about choosing traditional medicine and how Malaysia keep educating the citizen on how good traditional medicine is. I keep thinking about this nonsense.

I never believe traditional medicine or stuff like that. Stuff like if you get called by a number, you answer it and you die. Maybe it do happen, but I will never believe it. I'm anti of this stuff. But not truly I would say this stuff did not exist. It do exist. The matter of whether you trust it or not is the thing that we need to understand.

My story in this post is not regarding this deadly phone call. But rather i would talk on a story that happen yesterday in my life when i meet a person who talk about how miracle a traditional medicine could be.

A child who has been diagnosed by physician to have some spinal cord injury and did not have chances to walk again in his life but then recovered by a 'bomoh'. This is a story i heard from this person. And a story about a person diagnosed with renal failure but then recovered by 'bomoh'. This is the story i heard.

Do this stuff really work. I would surely say "NONSENSE". Things like this is blinding you but actually not curing you. I will always never believe this stuff.

This is because since I was childhood, I am having Bronchiol Asthma. Lot of elderly teach me some traditional trick to cure it. Some ask me to eat sireh, eat some crazy stuff like camel heart, eat aloe vera soup, everything... and i tried it just to have a hope that I will recover. Even there is some elderly in my village ask me to drink Human urine to cure my bronchiol asthma (luckily i did not try this one).

Well, in the end i was cured. By what? Those traditional things or all the 'bomoh' i met? No way. I was cured because i was compliance to my Inhaled Steroid Therapy. This is what cure me. Not those magic stuff.

Now after entering medical school. I am becoming more anti-traditional medicine more and more. I will never believe when you say renal failure can be cured by 'bomoh'. I will never believe that spinal cord injury can be cured traditionally. If they do, then show me the evidence. Show me.

I don't want people to keep believing on this stuff. What you all need is to learn more. Read more, and study more. Keep saying traditional stuff is good will keep you look stupid lor...

haha. even though, everything happen in this world came from Allah. So, there is limit in my unbelieve. If God say it, it will happen. So whatever i did not believe, i will always believe the God. But for what i did not believe, I will study more to prove it. even you say modern medicine did not cure, modern medicine came from Allah. So, fair enough. Peace.

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.

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…
