MOCK exam The Next day

Hmm, i don't expect that i performed really bad during this MOCK exam. Well, today got pregnancy case previous history of C-section twice and a fungating breast carcinoma. Well, i was terrible in both. Not too terrible, but not that excellence also. I just don't get certain examiner questions. It was not clear and so vague.

I love when they asked clearly. But that is what we call luck. We will get good examiner, and bad examiner.

What i love about MOCK exam or they call it MOCK program is that we have half day exam, and half day seminar, like a workshop.

For this 3 days, we are so lucky to get some lecture from Prof Dato Dr.Raymond Azman Ali, from UKM. I love his lecture regarding clinical examination and neurological examination. Everything make sense. Everything is logical and practical. Not like what we have been taught 3 years ago. What we have been taught is correct but not practical.

Hmm, i want to share some thing that we get from him. As a medical student, we are usually taught to spend 1 hour of long case examination to clerk a patient and then later present it to the examiner for the next 30 minutes. It is standard in all over the world. No medical school in the world that have different way of examination. So usually, theoretically we are taught to use 30 minute to clerk patient, and 10 minutes to do physical and the rest is to prepare ourselves to meet the examiner. But i learn rather something new from dato. What he tell us is to use only 10 minutes to clerk patient, 10 minutes to examine and 40 minutes to prepare ourselves to meet the examiner. So practical and make sense.

hmm...tomorrow is the last session for MOCK exam. A day when our result will come out and feedback session plus some talk on neuro examination 2. Looking forward to it.


  1. forget the past and excel for the future... all da best bro!

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.

Well, I got carried away in previous post talking about my experience taking entrance exam for Master in Pathology. You can check it here:

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…
