Movie weekend

Last weekend was a movie weekend for me. Went to Kota Kinabalu in the middle of Lahad Datu crisis, I don’t give a damn about that. I just need to update my movie addiction with the latest movie. It has been quite some time since my last movie.

So, I decided to watch 4 movie in 2 days.
1.       A good Day to die Hard
2.       Cloud Atlas
3.       Rock oo! Rimba Bara Kembali
4.       Journey to the west
This is my opinion regarding this 4 movie.

1.       A Good Day to Die Hard
Another die hard franchise. I did not watch the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Die hard movie. I just watched the 4.0. But Die Hard 4.0 is truly damn hard movie. I love it. The twist, the action, and the character development was amazing. However,  A good day to Die hard failed to catch up with the previous movie. It seem that the action is to exaggerated and the dialogue is kind of stupid and lame. What I can see when watching this movie is explosion everywhere. Why does it explode? I never bother about it. It was a pure boring movie. Sorry to say, I am not a big fan of die hard and with this kind of movie, I never will become a die hard fan.

2.       Cloud atlas
They said that this movie is kind of the greatest tale of the decade. I don’t really know what is cloud atlas and what is it all about. But with Tom Hanks as one of the actor, I choose to buy the ticket and enjoy my almost 3 hours movie.
Somehow, even though the story a bit messy for some people, but I did manage to relate all the story together. When I did, I feel happy and I feel satisfied watching the movie. The movie is about a long story starting from the year when slave trade is still legal until the year after the civilized human fall and had to fled to another planet to live. It’s a long story. But I love the way the story was told in the movie.
Starting from a son of a slave trader writing a journal about his life, later the journal was read by a gay musician writing love letter to his boyfriend, later the letter and the music was listened by a reporter trying to expose an evil nuclear company plan, then the reporter write a book about it and the book was sent to a book publisher, that book publisher adapt that reporter story and make it his own story, kind of movie was made from that story, then the movie was watched by Somni 451 in the future which give her the idea to trigger a revolution, and that revolution of Somni 451 in Korea trigger a new religion in earth after the human civilization was collapsed, and after that human fled to another planet….. it’s a long story but manage to be compacted into a 3 hours movie.
You all need to watch this movie. The story is amazing.

3.       Rock Oo! Rimba Bara Kembali
A malay movie. Just for fun. I saw the poster saying that this movie is directed and written by Mamat Khalid. I love Mamat Khalid’s movie. The comedy usually fresh and never stop to make you laugh.
However, this movie could be a memorable movie, the jokes are fresh, but I somehow does not like to see rock culture as portrayed by Mamat Khalid. Now I know why that culture almost dead nowadays. It was not nice. Long hair, the way they talk, the way they make decision, everything does not reflect a professional character. By the way, they are rockers. What more do I have to say about them.
The movie can make you laugh for sure. Simplistic story with a not so great ending.

4.       Journey To the West
Who love journey to the west? Who love Son Wukong. I believe everyone know about this tale. Directed by Stephen Chow, I found that this movie is the most worth it movie to watch compare to the previous 3 movie I watched. Seriously. The story is about how everything started. At this time, Sun Wukong was still a bad devil, and the other 2 ( the pig and the fish I guess) also still not become that monk followers until the end of the movie.
The story, smooth. The action and CGI, not bad. The jokes, characteristic of Stephen Chow. The movie, amazing. If you haven’t watch this movie, you are missing something in your life.

So that’s it. I don’t know when will be by next movie weekend with the crisis on going in Lahad Datu. Pray for the safety of our citizen and security force there.

No war. Peace!

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?

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…
