I'm taking some rest after exam

1. It has been a long week for me. The pediatrics exam was so up class and making me head turn around and i almost' crash' yesterday.

2. My MCQ question was quite 'normal'. MEQ is a little tough. I don't know whether i can use the word tough or not? I hate that question. I almost 100% guarantee that the answer supposed to be Acute Glomerulonephritis but then it turn out to be SIADH. What is SIADH? i know it but it is not fair to ask that in a condition where i never saw one patient with that diagnosis in the ward.

3. As i told before, what we learn in medicine, is to learn the common thing because that is what we are facing in the future. Maybe i did not study so much. Don't give reason they say. But still, i thought that the diagnosis was AGN.

4. Essay questions are quite easy. Only pulmonary tuberculosis and Hemophilia. No big deal.

5. Then come to long case. I got thalassemia cases. It was so easy and i was so thankful to God for giving me that case in the exam. But i have to present it to two examiners who have history of failing a student. I was so scared and i almost give up in answering their questions but still i went through.

6. For the short case, i got again Thalassemia ( thanks God), and one child with swelling on both knee. I thought it was hemophilia because the child does not present with any pain or abnormal gait or something. But then it was Juvennile Idiophatic Athritis. Ar... i diagnosed it wrong again.

7. In conclusion, Pediatrics exam or any other exam in medicine was so unpredictable. maybe the life in medicine is unpredictable.

8. Now i'm in my one week holiday. I was so tired. I want to rest a lot this week. Maybe writing a couple letters or updating my blogs and spend time with family is a good thing to do after the exam.

9. Next time, i will try my best to get the true diagnosis. I was so shame of myself.

I'm walking away....

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.

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…
