How much you pay for a wedding?

When i look up into my wallet, there are 2 pieces of RM10 notes and few RM1 notes and i am 10 feet away from the wedding ceremony house. The bride and the bridegroom already there smiling to me, awaiting me to come and i still calculating how much should i gave them? How much do i need to pay.

My housemate jokes at me, we pay how much we eat there. It's funny and does not make sense. haha. But a good laugh is always the best.

Almost all race in malaysia oblige you to give a present for any wedding. You must not come empty handed. You must at least give some 'ang pow' or present in a form of kitchen utensil or some household stuff. The reason being that this will help the couple to start their new life together as you can see, wedding is a lot of money. They need some support from everyone.

Nowadays, people don't like to give present anymore. They like to give money as this is much easier to plan later. Imagine if you give a whole set of glass or cup to a wedding couple, what you did not know is 4 more guests gave the same thing. So, if you give money, they obviously can buy whatever they want later.

But how much is the questions. In some chinese wedding ceremony, the guest can give up to rm500-rm1000. They usually did this to show how much profit they have or just to show off. While in malay wedding ceremony, usual 'ang pow' is rm5-rm50 only.
In indian wedding..i am not really sure cause i never went to one but i love to try. Just waiting for some of my indian friend to get married.

In conclusion, it depend on which race the bride and bridegroom are. Malay, dusun, chinese, indian, brunei, kad, murut, iban, and so much more, you must know their prices. Try to be there if they invite you to their wedding cause this might be a good opportunity to experiece other culture. Just make sure you bring enough money in your wallet.

And what if the bride is a malay and bridegroom is a chinese? hmmm....

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.

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…

It has been years since I took an exam paper, this time I had to. To continue in master program, we need to sit for an exam organized by KKM along with Universities which were held in University Malaya this year. Living and working in Sabah, going to University Malaya Ticket, accomodation, transportation such as taxi, all need to be accounted for. Unfortunately, this year exam were held a month earlier than scheduled and the information regarding that arrive to us like 2 weeks before that. We were pretty much stressed out because the air ticket prices were all expensive. We have no choices as the everything was on short notice. I hate this kind of situation.
