Teacher, Cikgu, Guru?

1. When i was a little kid, i always praise the teacher because i thought that they are the one who is the greatest among all. Well said, who is a doctor without a teacher, who is a police without a teacher. Everyone need a teacher. But when i grow up, i realize that the definition of teacher is not about a person or multiple person. It is more on how do you learn, yourself, your experience, that is what teach you throught out your life.

I am a little concern about the young generation or even older generation of teacher which i think that not all the teachers are great teachers after all. Some of the teacher only know how to collect money from the people and using the name of the teacher to make themselves look superior. No one can fight what teacher said. Teacher always right. No way.

Teachers are 50% right and 50% wrong. And what are wrong is also what teach us to go on.

What i see now in this beautiful country of Malaysia, not more than half of the teachers is a great teacher. I can see how teacher now become so rude, always blaming the parents if the rudeness and the fault is on them, always blame the student even the trigger is from them.

Once i see a video of a teacher got kicked by her student. Analyzing the video with my friends, we all made a conclusion since we are all student before, we conclude that the fault is on the teacher. Looking at the teacher finger pointing direct to the face with the angry face, even we cannot listen to he voince but we know, the first impulse in our head is to strike her if we are the student. The problem on handling the rudeness of the student is to become role model and more understanding on teenage normal development rather than scolding and using force.

Do they teach all the teachers in Malaysia about normal development of child? teeager? because they should know how to handle different categories of ages rather than keep acknowledging their student as a 'student'.

2. I remember one of my great teachers when i was in secondary school said that she love us as much as she love her children and she want us to be the best. Well said. This is what a teacher should have rather than scolding and forcing and torturing the student to follow their concern.
Come to think about it, did they do the same thing to their own children?

3. I think teachers in malaysia should be teach to control their rudeness and teach on how to tackle a student rather than ordering the student.

4. regarding the money, what is the difference between a doctor and a teacher? Both are going for money. But still, a doctor is holding a life of a person, even there is money behind it, but to save life is the first priority since if a patient die, then a doctor can be blame on it, can be suspended or even brought to jail. What about teacher? Well, no teacher are brought to jail because their student became a thief or a murder.

5. But still, i want to thanks all my teacher that bring me here in my current position on pursuing my dream. Without you all, i cannot be here. But not all of you though. Some of the teacher i remember to hate until today since i cannot think what is the rationale behind their act on me. what is the rationale on hating me making friends with the problematic student? or even what is the rationale preventing me from listening music while i am studying and many more. But most of them is the best.

I can say a few names that i can remember, Guru Wan Zainol, Ustaz Hamim, Cikgu Taba, Ustaz zainal, Cikgu Azman, Cikgu Shim, Cikgu math di st.anthony dah lupa nama. Ustaza rohaya dan rohani, ustazah that teach me al-quran ( 3 of them) during my primary school, Cikgu Alice ( BM teacher in primary school)... for the people that i did not mention, please forgive me, i forgot your name. Too many name i think.

And the greatest teacher in my life is my parent.

To all lecturer in UMS. This is what is all about. You all ae great until now. And i hope until then.

6. This is a funny thing, i always get annoyed when teachers salary is reaching up to the level of a basic doctor salary. For me, doctor job is to tiring, too busy, no life. But my friends who study to become teacher always oppose me saying that their job is tiring too. haha. I don't know which one is right. Let it just flow then. Both of the occupation have their own responsibility. But i hope doctor salary should be more then. Hope so.

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…
