Shopping Entry (Made in Indon Bang)

Okay. Where is the best place to shop around Sarawak? Or particularly near Kuching. Everyone answered "Sarikin".

Since before i went to Kuching, all of the people who have been in Kuching before always mentioning abou this place where the price is impossibly cheap. Is it true?

So today, it is my first experience landing my feet to Sarikin. First impression "wow". We stuck in a 2 miles traffic jam before reaching this rural place near the Sarawak-Kalimantan Border. Stuck almost an hour. Everyone going to this place i guess. Second impression "wow", no parking. This place is so crowded with people. I love something like this. When i go to somewhere on travelling, i did not like to go to a place where only i am alone going to that place. It is like i'm going to a wrong place. With such crowded place in Sarikin, I know that I am going to the right place.

Third Impression, "damn". Its hot. Too hot. I don't believe when people say this place is hotter than Kuching town, but i do now. it is really hot. Dunno why. maybe it nearer to equator or something like that.

So the shopping part. Is this place sell the most impossible price you ever seen in your life? No. It is just like an ordinary market with big big discount. How can i say it. If in Kuching, a same stuff would cost Rm130, in this place it will cost Rm100. Rm30 cheaper. But that is not impossible right.

Telekung which everyone is saying "very cheap" is not that very cheap at all. It is cheap. I have to admit that. In my hometown, the price is still the same. maybe rm10 cheaper. And kain pelikat or sarong is not cheap. For the same brand in my hometown labuan, this place charge rm15, my hometown you can get it for Rm5. Rm10 if you did not know how to bargain.

What about other stuff? Clothing? yeah, this place offer a very cheap price for that. But all the cloth is not up to my expectation. I would choose a good fabric rather than price. haha.

So in the end, i end up buying 1 cowboys hats which i want to give to my father, 1 hat to my mother and a cap for me.

Nike cap with spectacular design, nice, original nike, only cost rm10. this is cheap. really cheap. that is why i bought it. haha.

I'm trying to buy Tikar Kayu (wooden Mat), it is also very cheap here but, i don't bring enough money. Damn to myself. I also want to buy a Tudung saji, but i dunno how to put that on the flight later.

So my last impression, this is shopping heaven. People who know how to shop really will enjoy this place. But, the temperature is too high here. Cannot stand for long. My skin got burn already.

But i really enjoy this shopping session today. I have to close my eyes all the time because if i don't, RM50 in my wallet will disappear in less than 10 seconds. It did though.

Anyway, one dissapointing thing is i want to buy a new wallet here. Original leather only cost rm15 something like that. Damn cheap right. But i found out that every wallet is an old fashion style. I'm trying to find a new one with zip around the wallet. Look like female wallet but design for man. I saw this is India Street Kuching, RM25. But in sarikin they did not have this kind of wallet. I asked them why they did not sell that one.

They said, " Sorry bang, itu modelnya baru, kami pun mau mencari model itu. kalau di Indon sudah buat itu baru ada kami jual".

Yes, every item sold here is made in Indon, and we are buying in Indon border. That is why this place sell thing so cheap.

Lastly, please go this place. please. You would not be dissapointed.

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.

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…
