Roti canai

1. What is the most common breakfast in Malaysia? None other than Roti Canai with a glass of sweet Teh Tarik.

2. It does not matter which state you came from, when ask about it, everyone seem to be familiar with it. Another interesting fact about it is that everyone seem to have this roti canai outside. Rarely you heard that someone is enjoying homemade roti canai or eat roti canai at home. Everyone must eat it outside.

3. I am not sure but they said that this delicacies originated from India, brought by Indian immigrant to Malaysia but it seem that we cannot find this food in India. It can be only enjoyed here in Malaysia and Singapore i think and Brunei also. Thus, this is Malaysian food. Now it made not only by indian but also malay, chinese and of you are in Sabah, it was made by 30+ different tribe here in malaysia and even non-malaysian in Sabah (illegal immigrant) can made this simple and delicious breakfast.

4. This roti canai is similar to roti paratha i think because if you found frozen paratha in supermarket and then you heat it at home, it taste the same. But don't bother going out from your house in the morning to buy this roti canai, it was worth.

5. Actually, i post this Roti canai picture in this post not because of its history or its taste, but the picture i posted hear is taken exactly on the day when they announce our professional exam. The biggest exam so far in my life. I remember going to BTC cafe just beside the hospital to eat breakfast with my girlfriend just after a brief talk by our external examiner from Singapore.

6. To tell you the truth, it was the worse taste of Roti canai (even though it was actually really really nice crispy and the curry is perfect with chutney on the top of my roti make me want to have second) because i really nervous, afraid and feel like i want to die at that time. I have palpitation since the morning i woke up from my non-dreamy sleep. I was afraid. Really afraid.

However, in the end, everything goes well. I passed my exam. I am qualify to become a house officer but still not working now because of some problem with my registration (and all my other friends too).

In the end, i miss that morning eating with my pika. We don't have a lot of chances to eat breakfast together in Hospital because we usually posted in different hospital during my 5th year of study.

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.

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…
