Swine Flu prayer.

This is going to be short and brief.

Today, after Solat Jumaat (Jumaat prayer), all the people were asked to perform a prayer to pray that the swine flu will not extent more in our country. Hopefully, God will hear our prayer and protect our family and love one from the virus... amin.

However, why do people pray for swine flu? It is not a swine flu, it is a new virus and it does not really associated with the swine right now. human to human spread. More like human flu. I've read in the paper and some science journal saying that this is a whole new virus. It is not swine flu. I've read article on how scientific community arguing about the name of this new virus. Whether to call it swine flu, new flu, or a(h1n1).

When people start to label it as a swine flu, caused by swine (while pig is actually the mixing vessels for any influenza virus), they try to protect themselves from pig, but forgot that a person beside them has the virus.

The next thing is, Muslim always believed that by prayer, they would not get the virus. Let me make myself clear here. Yes...they will not get it if Allah does not want them to get it. Allah the most powerful.

However, by looking at the islamic community, most of them start to only believed in prayer and not the practical thing to do. I guess no one will go somewhere with the prayer, only if Allah wants it.

So I suggest Muslim nowadays, to pray more, and that is a must but to do more on other things so that we can be the same level as others. I've been to Islamic museum and saw a lot of achievement by Early Muslim Scholar in science. I remember the book i've read a few months ago where a Muslim ruler during Abasiyah gave a Water clock to a Christian leader in Europe as a diplomatic gift and people in Europe was fascinated with the technology that Muslim world have.

Today, they give us internet. And we only pray so that God give us more that internet. We must not

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.

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…
