Say no to Sime Darby for IJN

1. I'm not really sure on how to say about this. But suddenly when i open up my television yesterday around 8pm, I heard about this Sime darby want to takeover IJN or more appropriately said that IJN will be privatize. A little shock about it.

2. Since the beginning, I am so disagree about this because I thought IJN is so grand and important asset of Malaysia and how can it be privatize so easily like privatizing Telecomunication company or something. My point is, IJN is dealing with people health, life and death of someone, and we should not look to IJN as a place to collect money.

3. I am not really sure what privatizing means. I just know exactly that it means, everything would be expensive, price would be twice as high as before and better services promises only upgrade to around 15 % for 100% increase in the price. So, when i heard about this thing, i just know that it mean that you need to double your money before lying on IJN bed for surgery.

4. Today, one of our lecturer, a consultant in hospital describing to us on how he is so disagree about giving IJN to sime darby. He is totally true as he said that IJN is a place where poor people from village would rely to if they need a surgery. No one can afford to go to private hospital or overseas to do bypass surgery.

5. In my opinion, IJN is a heart for Malaysian. We have a high class institute who would perform surgery with affordable cost. Here in Sabah, i can see a lot of poor people having a lot of heart disease. Minus to the people who eat so much or smoke so much and get cardiac problem. I'm looking to the children who have congenital heart disease. They even think twice before going to IJN because of the cost of surgery, but then, with a little help, IJN is affordable in the end. Think about it when IJN own by Sime darby...

6. The promises today would only be promises in the future. We learn from the history. Privatising is not always bring better services or only bring better services with double the original prices.

7. I am so dissapointed when politicians or whoever agree and considering to this proposal. If one really care about the heart of all Malaysian, they would disagree without hesitation.

8. I don't agree. IJN is already stable and whatever problem they have until they need to sell IJN to the private sector is so unreasonable. Maybe you can even sell the whole country to private corporation but not the institute who serve and save thousand of life, thousand of children life. Life is more important that anything else. Health is more important than money. People are more important than the leader.

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.

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…
