Visual Screening at SK MELAWA

Sk Melawa. Small school of Sabah.

1. Today our Professor (Prof P.Muthusamy), the one i described in my earlier post bring us to SK Melawa for some project. Actually, it was our school postgraduate student research project i think. I also did not know actually what research they are conducting... just following my professor cause he looks so energetic and bring us along. It was fun and interesting. We got a free breakfast too. haha.

2. When i step into that school, then i realized that the school look familiar with my primary school, around 15 years ago. Sabah really pity, in time where most of the school in Malaysia, particularly West Malaysia, including my hometown Labuan got this high tech school with 3 floors building and have so many kind of facilities, this school that i visited this morning is just a school with classroom, a small resource center, and a canteen.... it is like walking in the past. After 15 years, there is still school like this. What happen?

3. I believed that some people up there does not do their work. Why don't gave this school at least a new building, even though not big, but maybe better than just a wooden and small school like this.

4. Enough says, I just want to express my enjoyable time this morning. I think the fun started all by Prof Muthusamy. He was so energetic and student orientated. What a brilliant lecturer he is. If all lecturer are like this, medical study would not be boring after all.
The arrival of UMS Medical students..grand..grand.

My colleague aldrin screening the visual acquity using Prof Muthusamy Vision chart. He create the chart to substitute Snellen's Chart. It is called Muthu's Vision A4 chart. Very reproducible.

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…
