Before sleep murmuring.

1. Watching Mulan last night. Quite nice compare to other hollywood movie. I just think that the story is not flowing smoothly. Lot of scene are cut short to make the story quickly reach the climax and the end. It is ok though, worth it. However, i just love the old Mulan by Disney.

2. Money is decreasing quickly nowadays. Why? Am i spending too much? Am i jollying around everynight? Am i eating first class food everyday? No. I did not. Still, everything now is expensive. Let me show some calculation. A few hours ago, i withdraw Rm50 from my bank account, i use Rm12 to pay for the dobby (obviously i have work to do from monday to sunday - no laundry time- and i am lazy). Rm20 i use to pay for my car petrol. Rm5 for a plate of fried rice. RM8 for one ticket movie and Rm2.50 for 22oz ice lemon tea.. I just finish my RM50 in just a few hours. I have to withdraw Rm50 again to buy some stuff in Giant.

A few years ago, RM50 is precious. You can buy a lot. If you all did not realize it, let me tell you the price of a plate of rice + vegie+ fish 4 years ago.. RM2.50!. Do you remember the underground floor of Centrepoint KK where every stall there use to shout " Satu lauk satu sayur rm2.50". Where do all this shouters go today? No more RM2.50. Satu lauk, satu Sayur RM4.50 standard. Rm4.50 is considered cheap.

3. The increase in food price does not really affect those who are working. Everyone of them would say, if the food price is high, don't eat outside, eat inside. Cook yourself which i found that it cannot be applied for a College student like me and the other. We are prohibited to cook in our hostel, and even if we could eventually, our room is 3X5 metres. Where to cook? Our room only fit for 2 cupboard, 2 bed, 2 study table, and 2 book rack. So, theory of boycotting outside food is difficult to us, and the increase in cook food price make us difficult also.

4. When asked about why do all the food price are expensive, typical answer is " Oil price increase, rice price increase, sugar price increase...etc". However, when you went to the market, all of this is nonsense. Oil price even decrease a few months ago, and government is subsiding the rice. Sugar price not increase for years.

5. The more sad thing is here in Sabah, raw material is very cheap. But, the processed materials are expensive. Why? I guess lot of bussinessman here in Sabah already full stomach eating the money from the effort of sabah's people.

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.

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…
