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.


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.

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…
