Another lecturer gone

1. Another lecturer left us last week. The situation is different this time. This is because, this lecturer just left like that without informing properly thus all the schedule become a mess. I myself have to rearrange everything.

2. I am so glad that we have a brilliant professor teaching us. At first, i just think that he was a professor like everybody else but to know that he is one of the best in the world and he is well recognized through out the world make me proud. I don't believe that a brilliant person like him is teaching me right now.

3. When he flip the oxford book of clinical specialties, there it is, his name was there in Eye chapter. And to search the internet, i found that he has his own award that is to be given to the brilliant postgraduate from Ediburgh. Wow.

4. And he like to tell us his story. And i like to listen.

5. I want to be like him someday. Own my own 'Zaki's award', have my name in oxford clinical specialties book, or maybe in other books, Kumar and Clerk maybe..haha.. this is my dream. And i want to be on the level where, everyone is same level as me or below.

6. Did i mention that i want to become an infectious disease specialist. MAybe sub-specialty in something like TB, or maybe malaria. I like those topics and i haven't change my mind since my first year of study. Even though the professor i mentioned above told us all to become an ophthalmologist, but i am not so interested in eyes. I do not know why.

7. ' When you excel in your study, and get a big title, you will walk tall and have to look below to see people, even though physically you are small and short'..... - my prof said.


  1. aku sentiasa sokong ko...

  3. ei. si syap bangga jadi kawan ko jak? aku??

    ko tunggu pie aku suda rakam album sendiri, suda jadi artis top se top mawi (kenapa haruss mawi? ewww)
    masa tu aku akan blg"siapa syapiei?").. heheh

    zaki, aku nda berapa suka la perkara no 7. tuh. bunyinya sgtlah arrogant.. aku tau walaupun dalam Islam sendiri menyatakan, 'orang2 yang berilmu diangkat martabatnya', tp bukan kita yg 'angkat' diri kita sendiri sampai kena tgk orang tgh ke bawah (pandang rendah?) biarla org yg memandang tinggi kita, tapi kita tak perlu memandang rendah org lain...


    p/s- kalau aku salah faham maksud ko cuba sampaikan, sori daun keladi.

  4. wow. that's great.

    wish i could be a great teacher and bring changes to our nation.

    dreaming too big eh?

    btw, kalau free ahad ni jom g 1B!

  6. wah.
    kagum dgn quote prof ko tue.
    i assume he is not embracing islam,
    coz being a muslim, we are taught to be down-to-earth, humble yet still able to preserve our pride and dignity.

    its juz my POV, nothing personal.

  7. Well, it is true. He is not muslim. I also did not agree with him regarding walking tall. But the story he told us is not only about being arrogant, bongkak or somethibng.

    Actually dia nak bagitau tentang macamaana kita boleh menjadi tinggi dan tidak dipijak oleh orang lain dengan knowledge yang kita ada.

    As you all know or did not know, he is so successful in his life eh, if you sit down and listen to his story for 10 minutes, obviously you want to be like him also. His name is Professor Datuk Dr Muthusamy Palanisamy, JP. He is well known in Malaysia and also ediburg i think.

    Some people say that he is one of the best opthalmologist in the world.

    raeally nicelistening to his story until one time, you become fed up, and really want to have you lunch as early as possible. haha.

    I think what he means regarding no.7 is, you must have knowledge to make you superior. If i continue what he says, it was like this.... ' once you have knowledge, you don't have to ask people to look up to you, they will look up to you if you excel in your study.....' he also said , ' Be nice to other people, so they will be nice to you man, and please don't take credits from others'....

    I remember him today saying that his first child is a well known opthalmologist ( you can check the new edition of clinical oxford handbook on clinical specialties which is revised by his daughter), and his second daughter is a well know orthopaedic surgeon in oxford or whatever, and his thrid daugther is a.. i forgot. And he said that all of his daughter became a person like that all because of his wife and not him. DON'T TAKE CREDIT FROM OTHER he says. Hahaha.

    Chow... About to finish my opthalmo posting, i will be talking about other prof later when i'm in community medicine. Prof Osman maybe because he is a clinical epidemiologist... if i'm not wrong.

  8. sapa la nak pijak doktor eh zaki?

    semua org tau kalau doktor tu, susah utk jadi...

    aku tau!
    senior mmg suka pijak doktor2 junior. hoho

    bah. semoga sukses dgn apa yg ko ingin kan.

    aku pun mau quote seorang prof aku disini (dia tiada title datuk pun, mungkin dia nda sehebat prof ko, sbb nama dia tiada di textbook pun. hiks)

    "janganlah kalian sesekali merasa angkuh dan sombong dgn ilmu yang kalian miliki, sungguh pun obat kalian yang berikan, namun Allah jualah yang menyembuhkan..."


  9. o0o.
    hebat nye kn.
    kagum je.
    bgs gak la ada org giler bapak genius cmtue.
    so they can go tru all the hardworks in R&D,
    and common ppl like me can jz enjoy the benefits of it.

    life's good!

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.

Master in Pathology (Malaysia): A Guide To Apply.

Well, I got carried away in previous post talking about my experience taking entrance exam for Master in Pathology. You can check it here:

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…
