I am thinking... it is hard to become a diplomat. It is easier to become a dictator.

If a country was attacking another country and you are a country who supposed to be friend for this two country, obviously you would condemn everything about the attacker. This will be gone for a very long time. The solution is clear. But when somehow, after a period of time, the attacking country stop and try to negotiate a friendship back with your country, will you accept it. What if the attacked country is one of the top priority of your country?

If you choose to take the easy solution and accept the agreement from the attacking country, it would hurt the attacked country. Then you try to negotiate the attacked country to accept the solution but it would not be so easy as you thought. In the end the line is clear, you have to obey a country that is the top priority. But this mean you are going declare a full blown war with the other one.

If i am the diplomat in this situation, i would rather be silent and engaged in a different way to find the solution. Even a round table would not solve the problem. I have to maintain the relation with the country that is so important to mine first at the same time, avoiding any provoking factor. But no clear solution will be visualized. But it could be better compare to feeding a hatred either way.

It is so hard to become diplomatic. It is much easier to become dictator.

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.

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…
