Eng Kiong Aircon Service

I am no expert in car. I am just a normal guy who drive a Proton Persona elegance. Up until now i am so fortunate that my car did not cost me a lot of problem. What i did is to service that car every 3-4 month once and thats pretty much what i did.

I never service my aircond before thus last week i went to one shop in my hometown, Labuan. This shop is called Eng Kiong Aircon service. This place was recommended by my father. In the first  place, I only plan to refill my aircon gas however when i reached the shop, the foreman told me that there is nothing wrong with my car aircon. I knew better than him. I drove the car and i can tell how hot is it when driving it on a sunny day. Never happen like this before. So i know there is something wrong with it.

The second opinion from another foreman told me that its time to service my aircon already. It has been 2 years and I never service my car aircon. Fair enough. Lets give it a try.

To my surprise, I was charged RM 450 to fully service my car aircon. I am still positive on it. Maybe my car aircon is that terrible so they need to replace a lot of stuff.

To my surprise again, when I got the receipt, it only stated there : open dashboard, something something i forgot,  vacuum, cleaning the coil, reinstall the dashboard, refill gas.

I did ask whether they replace anything that cost that much. The girl say no. Then how come that much? She said that opening the dashboard is a difficult task thus they charged that much. They say new model that need to open the dashboard will cost more than the average car like Proton Wira.

Fly fly my money... With that price i can do a major service to my car in Sugee Family service centre.

My wife kind of teasing me saying that i have been cheated. I just don't know because this is the first time i service my car aircon. Even my other family and friends in Labuan never thought of getting their car aircon service.

Now, my aircon back to normal. I wonder, if i just refill my gas would it be the same. To refill gas cost less than a hundred ringgit.

Give me a feedback if you think i've been cheated.

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…
