Sick or Criminal

1. It was a very hot noon and i am sitting in my room watching the news. Are you aware that a few weeks ago, there is a very cruel massacre occur here in Malaysia where a man kill his family in a very cruel way. He confess to the authority that there is a voice who told him to do so. After that, media start to give attention to this case.

2. Some call it The Devil Whisper, some call it devil voice, and many other thing but upon realizing about this case, i immediately jump to one differential which is Schizophrenia. It was not devil or what so ever... it was audio hallucination that came from the brain itself. Our brain is not simply a tissue, it is so mysterious until no one on earth can describe it completely until today.

3. Another thing is, lay people start to divide into 2 groups. One groups said that it was the Devil fault for the cruel massacre. Another group said, it was that man fault. So who's fault it is? People want punishment, people want fair judgment, people want justice.

4. Insensitively, i would say, it was no one fault. He is sick. He need treatment. And whatever he do is not done consciously. So, he need treatment and not punishment.

5. This is the issue in psychiatry. Should we punish psychiatric patient who murder? But they are sick, they did not know what they are doing at that time? So should let them loose? So that they can murder again? Or what about the relative of the murdered family? Should we not consider their feeling?

Ultimately, we can only said that psychiatric patient is sick, and it is not fair to punish them.

What to do...God created our brain in a very complicated way you could ever imagine. So everything would trigger our heart, that we are still not understand even something that stuck in our head.

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…
