Cheating in Kuching

1. My second time in Kuching, the first time is 5 years ago when i was in form 5 i think. I came here to Kuching then those Boat to cross the river charge me rm10 for one cross while other people pay rm0.30 only. I was so damn bad luck that day.

2. My second time in Kuching, i am glad that i have someone who knew how to speak in sarawak dialek then we manage to get ourselves from getting cheated. We pay rm0.40 when we are going to visit Fort Margherita but it was closed that day. So unlucky. Went back with nothing.

3. I thaught when i am here for the second time, no one will cheat me again. But i am wrong. Yesterday when were trying to get to Taman Si Wangi, i forgot, one bus driver charged us rm3 to send us until the front door of our destination. Weirdly, some day before that, we went to ride the same type of bus and we only charged rm2.50 for more farther destination.

4. We try to search for other bus, and you know what we found? this one bus driver simply say rm35. We are shocked. My friend said that the other bus driver charged only rm3 and he promised to sent us until the front door. You know what is the reaction of that bus driver? He raised his voice to us, angry at us saying that if you want to ride go in, if don't want then no need. And then an old lady interfere saying that his destionation is much far than we do and she only pay rm2.50 (nice old lady trying to help us), but that bus driver simply said "shut up" to the old lady. My friend argue but i stop her. I said people like this don't worth to argue with. They are like stone. No matter how much you try to argue, they always want to win.

5. Half lucky, we manage to be cheated less expensively, RM3 to that destination that only case rm1 i think. But he send us until the front door. So okay, fine.

6. the point is, people always want to cheat others today. I don't say Kuching only, even if you are in Sabah, you sometimes found this kind of situation. What did they think? How do they feel when they do that?

7. Yesterday we heard some travelers were charged RM4 to cross that river. What the heck happen to all this people? Where is their dignity? How much would their lost if they are charging in normal price?

8.Something need to be done regarding this matter.

p/s: i am trying to defend my friend when some emotional people trying to attack him regarding his post.

Labcoat issues. Long time already. Now encore? haaha. How come got encore?

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.

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…

It has been years since I took an exam paper, this time I had to. To continue in master program, we need to sit for an exam organized by KKM along with Universities which were held in University Malaya this year. Living and working in Sabah, going to University Malaya Ticket, accomodation, transportation such as taxi, all need to be accounted for. Unfortunately, this year exam were held a month earlier than scheduled and the information regarding that arrive to us like 2 weeks before that. We were pretty much stressed out because the air ticket prices were all expensive. We have no choices as the everything was on short notice. I hate this kind of situation.
