Three Cups of Tea

A title of a book. Three Cups of Tea.

It is a very simple book to read. The story is about how a man give up his normal life as a medical nurse and sold everything he had just to build a school in Pakistan. It was really inspiring. How can a human like that exist in this world. Just to provide education to a rural area in Pakistan, he would leave his wife and children, live in a car, live with no money, just to give others education.

Through out the book, i found that not only him exist, there are others, teachers in pakistan, afghanistan and other middle east country who only get 1 dollar salary for a month to teach local children. And most of them did not get any salary at all. However, they still teach because what they want to create is a better and peace world.

Lot of people nowadays did not do their job because of the benefit to others but mostly benefit to themselves. But we could not blame those people because people have their need. So salary and good income is a need to everyone on planet earth. However, the intention is what important in everything that we do.

As i speak with a specialist medical doctor during my elective posting, he described on how hard a doctor job is from 6 am until 10 pm everyday and even sometimes 48 hours non stop. And how little doctor in Malaysia received every months. He asked students to give up medicine.

However, he mentioned the point of his story. The point is that becoming a d0ctor is not about the salary. it is about intention to serve others.

A professor once told us that we can expect and hope for a good income when becoming a doctor but stressed to us that we must have that intention to treat people.

So intention is the most important thing in our work. What is our intention everyday when we start our day?

No matter how difficult the job is, if we have the right intention, we would do it. Our life is for others to benefit.

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…
