Consumers should accept sugar price hike positively by consuming less sugar, said Consumer Affairs, Cooperative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

"To lead a healthy lifestyle, we need only seven spoons of sugar a day in our drinks and food, according the Health Ministry," he (Dato Seri Ismail Sabri)  told reporters after launching a campaign to encourage Malaysians to take less sugar and Koperasi Bela Rakyat (Kobera) here Saturday. - Bernama

 I still not agree regarding this thing. This is the second time i heard people saying this kind of sentences. I've mention before that if the sugar price hike, those vendors and restaurant would not gave discount for every cup of their coffee and tea even we specifically asked for 'Kurang gula'.

The disadvantages is for people like me, student, who live in hostel and we don't have a chance either to drink plain water cooked from the pipe, or buy drink from outside. And what a pain if later someone would say that " drinking plain water is good for health so with the sugar price hike, everyone should drink plain water only". It is like.. i don't know..weird.

I believed, in the end, the scholarship and loan money for student should be raised to accommodate the increasing price of everything especially food and drinks. I imagine that it would be better if i am the person who make sugar for sale, then i would write different thing in this post. I would totally support sugar price hike for sure that time.

Anyway, increasing sugar price in market is inevitable. There is no way that we can ask for it to be in normal price again. But i don't like to hear the positive reason to reduce sugar intake. Diabetes will not be prevented by increasing the price of sugar. Did we learn this from cigarette. No matter how high you put the price for a box of smoke, no one will stop smoking, and more and more people will become poor and poorer because they smoke.

I hate people who smoke too. 

Everyone deserves their just deserts.

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…
