Labuan and The Water Issue

1. I am back in Labuan, and yes, the problem that started when I was 11 years old (now i am 24 years old) still there and no sign of it going to be resolved. NO WATER IN LABUAN!

2. Have you ever been studying in Labuan Matriculation college or University Malaysia Sabah cause if you do, you will experience this problem and you will know it better like us, the labuanites. If you are a tourist, then this should not be a problem as water for tourist or maybe bussiness sector, industrial area is not affected by this problem.

3. I want to tell everyone that my house has not get a single drop of water for almost a month now. Before this, we will have water (with low pressure) for maybe 2 days a week. We have 4 water tank now to make sure we keep enough water to survive.

4. Water is a basic thing for all living thing in this world. We are too living thing. In an island like this, i do not expect people to find water from underground sources, river or etc. We are surrounded by salted water, the sea. To get water for drinking is so hard in a small island. Yes there is underground water source now that has been use to by KTAK to supply the need for thousands of labuanites. Thanks god but that water will not resolved this problem.

5. I have been hearing that politicians are talking about this issues in parliament, but to what extend that this will help? I would say thank you to the politician who try to make thing better for us but i guess until the problem solved, i would not believe that they are doing their job. I am a citizen of this free country and i have the right to express what i feel.

6. I heard that they are building more water pipes to supply water from Mainland Sabah to Labuan, but i also heard that it will not be enough as you can see that industrial area in labuan need more water, i believe it is their right to demand for that. But not to forget, the people, the villagers, we, also have the right to get a clean water supply.

In the end, let see until when this problem will continue.

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.

Haha.

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…
