I miss Raya...again

1. It happen last friday. I was post call. I am so tired walking out from the ICU ( the place where my own call was), and to my surprise that there is a lost of stall and decoration along the corridor to my ward where i supposed to work that day. It was Sambutan Hari Raya for our hospital.

2. I was so happy looking at everyone there wearing traditional baju melayu and baju kurung, cookies everywhere, there is the smell of curry and Peanut sauce, rendang..and the best thing is, there is music playing Hari raya song. I feel like Raya again.

3. I quickly went into my ward and review my patient quickly as i was informed that the celebration will begin at 10 am. Our ward round start at 9. It was slow..damn slow. I want to go to that ceremony at 10. Well,, we did get lucky. At 9.30, our specialist told us to do whatever we want first as she was teaching the MO about master exam short case. I was running with few other colleague to the corridor where the ceremony should be. A lot of people there. I was so excited. We went to Satay stall and ask for a few satay and i also went to take some Ketupat and peanut sauce. It was at that time all the stall start to close their food and say that we should first enter the hall for the officiating ceremony but then we don't have time for that.

4. It does not matter. We went to our ward first. Planning to go to that ceremony later to eat only. And that was it. Work start coming. All i know i was sitting there holding a very thick patient's case note and try to take as much history from her when my watch showing 12 pm already. After i finish my clerking, i quickly pass over my job to another people with the reason that i want to go to friday prayer and... that is it. When i get to the corridor, everybody was cleaning their stall. Food finished. Ceremony finished. I was there, the last person i guess trying to look for food. Outside i am cool,,inside i was piss off. I really excited about that ceremony but i missed it.

5. With a blunt face, i went to on call room trying to get a shower for myself as i did not bath since morning ( i was on call the nght before). I only slept for 1 hour that night, i was tired, i haven't eat anything accept 3 pieces of satay and a few pieces of ketupat. I went to on call room, one of my colleague was there, she was having a nap or rest i thnk, i went ang get my shower, drop my self on to the bed beside her, then talk and sleep until i woke up at 1.30 pm..and i missed my friday prayer.

It was like, i missed everything on friday. I don't know why. Life is so tiring today.

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…
