Listening story

Everyday learning about how to take history. Haha. Sometimes i feel boring to learn about it. but to use it is interesting.

Different patient will gave different history. It is nice to know what others experienced in their life.

Sometimes during on call, i like to talk to some patient not regarding their medical illness but about other thing, their story. I like to listen to them and sometimes this is therapeutic as telling someone your story can relieve your pain.

Somehow, i start to realize the importance of history taking. It can make someone comfortable. You will feel comfortable if you tell other regarding your problem. Telling someone who is willing to listen.

A good speaker is the one who listen.

By this statement, do you realize that there is a lot of bad speaker in this world. When you look at all the people in the media, they talk, they talk brilliantly, you cannot beat them in their manifesto, fact and the flow of their talking. When they meet people, they mixed well with other quickly, people start to think that this kind of people is reliable. However, in the end, people would say " dia tu cakap kosong ( only know how to speak without making thing real)". Why this happen? because this people don't know how to listen.

Listening is much more powerful than speaking. By listening to other, you can control them easily but by talking non stop to them, the rate of people comply with you is lower.

Lstening skill also important in our life. When someone talk, we listen. Wait until there is dot in their line than you can start to speak.

Do you realize since our grandmother's era that lot of people hate people who do not listen?

These people are called 'degil'. Somehow, since a long time ago they realize that you must know how to listen and not only talk.

So now, everytime someone talk to me, i try to listen to them. Honestly i am also not a good listener. But i will do my best.

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…
