A picture tell a thousand story 1

A picture can tell a lot of story. When i look into my hard disk, there is a lot of random picture that i took, most of it during my student time before i start working. Guess after i start working, life becoming the same everyday and not much picture need to be taken.

This picture was taken on my final momment in Medical school. This is 'Lokan bakar' or in english i guess i can call it Grill clam or something. This cuisine can be found near Sulaman area Kota Kinabalu just before we reach Karambunai Resort. Before the roundabout to Karambunai or to Kudat if i am not mistaken.

When i took this picture, it was the last time i ate at that place. My girlfriend insist of going there as we never had the opportunity to go there before. Thus, after our final exam, we went there and ate those clam. It us just a plain claim burn on top of open fire, and it is served best with chilli and coconut puding.

This clam gain a lot of media coverage when promoting Sabah to tourist. It became like a tourist attraction. But i would not recommend it to tourist because the hygiene of this place..has a lot of space to be improved. Nevertheless, we did try to eat here and we did not get sick.

But when i work as a doctor now, i realize that this place is an endemic place for cholera. So beware.

I never went to this place again after this picture moment. Maybe i am health conscious now. Or maybe i did not find grilled clam that much fascinating. But i did enjoy my time here. You know, eating with your love one will always be the best.

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…

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real 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…
