Anggak...gecko


. Something funny happen today. A few people in my village are searching for some lizard called anggak ( in my brunei language). They say that this lizard cost up to Rm30 000 in the market. What funny about this is that this lizard used to live in our house a few years ago, not one, but many of them live.

2. It was maybe more than 10 years ago. During that time, tormal house lizard was eaten by this big lizard. It was scary. I used to be scared by this kind of lizard and if i saw it ( i was a child at that time), i will run away and shout..."ahh...anggak...." then start to call my dad to throw it away.

3. After a quite some time, those lizard start to disappear from our house. Some of them were eaten by our cats. We used to throw them away because it was not nice when you sit in your living room, and one of the big lizard start to crawl on your ceiling. Not nice to see. Thus, today, i never see them again. I wonder why. And i almost forgot their name...anggak.

4. Now people searching for it again because of its unusual high price. I wonder if it still live in our house, we will be instantly rich. hahha.

5. Maybe a lot of people did not know what is anggak. So i don't have my own picture collection of this kind of lizard so i search up in the internet and i found some picture of it taken by those people who are selling this lizard.

6. I wonder if we need to protect this kind of lizard...obviously i am concern about it since i never see it anymore around my house. They could be endangered species or something like that. I don't know. As far as i know, people looking for it not to keep it as a pet but to eat them. They said it contain healing property which i found doubtful. They are lizard. Just lizard for me.


Okay here is some picture of it that i found in the internet




Hehe..scary huh if this big lizard crawling in your wall and ceiling at night. And it produce a sound that sound like this .." angkk..angkk.." i don't know. huhuhu. This picture look like a normal lizard, but it was bigger than this. and it have variety of colour too.

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.

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…
