End Of HO Entry

I have been posting a lot of my entry under the label of HO Entry. HO Entry is the most commonly used heading in house officer life. Everytime u wrote an entry inside a case note of a patient, u need to write that so that people could recognize that the entry was made by a house officer. Pretty much saying that the entry is not significant as any other entry.

HO entry is one of the first thing that i learn when i started housemenship training here in Queen Elizabeth hospital. Now, i only have 5 days before ending my training and become a qualified medical officer. I did received a letter stating that I am now a qualified medical officer already. 

Most people would say time fly so fast but i do not think so. I feel that i had a long journey within this 2 years of training. I've seen a lot of thing, had a lot of trouble, had a lot of experience along the way. I've met a lot of friends and enemy. I feel like housemenship is taking me forever to complete. 

There is a few bump on my road, I didn't get through obstetrics and Gynaecology posting and have to add extra 3 months in my posting. I had a depression during paeds posting and i purposely extend my stay there for a month. All of this thing i will not forget. And i have to go through everything on my own. But not completely alone, i have my fiancee that support me all the way, my family, my housemate and a few friends that always cheer me up. 

Emergency and Trauma posting is the best posting i ever hsd. Not because of the posting itself but because of friends that i met there could be the best that i ever met in this entire 2 years training. 

Im ending my housemenship in a few days. I hope that everything would be better after this. The real journey will begin from here. I have a mixed feelings. Scared. Excited.  Happy.  Sad.  Confused.  

End of HO Entry


  1. Good luck as an MO Zaki (^^) Lepas habis training, I think my training was my best years. I dunno about doc, though. I'll be attending your weddin, inshaAllah :)

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…
