Hijab Hip Hop

It's a trend or is it coincidence. Hip hop scene was introduce in Malaysia quite some years ago but was bring up to the mainstream mainly by the duo called Too Phat. Ever since, Hip Hop has been mixing around Malaysian music, I believe it is in line with international music scene as hip hop now cannot be separated from pop music. Every pop music need a rap to help it sell a bit in urban music market.

What am i interested at is the beginning of hip hop song rising with few women wearing hijab in Malaysia. It is awkward to think about it but in the end it blend. It became a norm in our society. This has proved that women wearing hijab are not closed minded and they are too need to stand in front of the line.

I am proud of our society as acceptance of matter like this rarely happen in other muslim country. Only in Malaysia you can find such thing are common. Where else you can find a girl wearing hijab with tight jeans and body fit T-shirt, going to the university studying medicine or law? There are some places in the world that this thing happen but in our country, it is too common to see.

A few critics have been raised regarding this issue. Not to deny that some people in our society still think that this is wrong and diverted from Muslim teaching. If someone read this post, they could shake their head and maybe even called me an apostate.

I just believe that women should have their right, and even women with hijab should have their right more than ever. I have no intention to discuss about religious value in this post.


Here are some music video of notable girl with hijab in hip hop / pop music culture in malaysia.


and another one



Anyway, not to forget, the beginning of this hijab culture in music was introduced by non other than this girl called Yuna. I believed she is the one who trigger all of this. I am not a big fan of her but she is very talented.

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.

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…

Master in Pathology (Malaysia): My Experience Entrance Exam

I've told earlier that I wanted to talk about my experience taking entrance exam for Master in Pathology or MPath but talk about my celcom problem instead. - All Google App not working Over Mobile: Celcom Experience.

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 means...money. 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.
