Langkawi Trip Part 3

The next day in Langkawi. After cable car, where should we go next. First place to visit early in the morning was a place just nearby our motel. Underwater World Langkawi. It was just 3 minutes walk from our motel. So convenience.

As usual, there were so many tourists around. We have to line up for about 5 minutes before reaching the ticket counter. But that was just a small matter. Lining up feel so much fun when you are on vacation. The price for the ticket was quite expensive actually. If i am not mistaken, it was RM22 per person with mykad. Langkawi Island is not a cheap place to spend your holiday.

The only attraction that keeps me entertained in underwater world langkawi was the penguin. I was so impressed with them. They kind of showing off their skills and posed in front of the camera. Everytime we snap a picture, they posed like a celebrity. I hate it yet they were so cute. Haha.

The rest of the attraction in this place was fish. Lots of different kind of fish. Completed our tour in here in less than 1 hour. Level of fun...8 per 10. Fair enough.
Ala ala kat artic la ni.

Can see that penguine?

Up for the next place. The next place we went... Beras terbakar. Disappointed a bit cause there is nothing much to see there. It was more like a shopping place. Market where there were a lot of people selling cloth, sea cucumber oil, and whatever..

It was rainy that day. After Beras terbakar, we went to find Langkawi Craft museum. I hate to admit that google GPS is fooling around with us. The direction keeps pointing front front until we reach Kuah town and it was raining heavily. There were nothing to see in a rainy day.
Kat beras terbakar punya rumah.

We spend more than an hour just to find the craft museum. I guess until the rain stopped, then we reach that museum. There were nothing much to see also in that museum. It was more like a shop selling all this craft work arranged in a way it look like a museum.

The next place to visit, Pantai Pasir Hitam. Yes the sand is black but i am not really sure its black because of nature or because of the rubbish laying around. Not a nice place to recommend to others.

Next place, it was a hot spring well or something. I forgot the name. It is located just nearby Pantai pasir Hitam. That place is beautiful yet to my disappointment, the well is not actually hot. I dont know, maybe they forgot to turn on the switch. Yet its a nice place to visit to take picture.

A bit tired but we were ready for the next tour. Perhaps its the last museum for the day. We went to a place called Gallery Perdana. It is actually a museum consist of our former Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohammad, private collection of stuff given to him during his prime minister time. Knowing that it only showing his private collection, maybe 10 minutes tour to this place is enough. Wrong. The gallery was so big until i felt that i want to collapse trying to tour in every corner of the gallery. We stop halfway and left the gallery heading back to our motel by 5 pm.

Beca pun orang bagi kat Mahathir.

And again, beach time. We went to the beach again and this time the wave was bigger than the day before. The force of the wave can throw a big person like me in a single blow. Yet, me and my wife had a nice time at the beach. Sitting and waiting for the wave to hit us, at the same time waiting for the sun to set.

At that moment, i realize how free my life is, even only for a short few days. Away from the never ending job treating sick people, taking care of people, serving the community like a donkey.... at that time i am so free, so excited, so happy. I feel like i am flying or maybe wash out by the sand and the wave.

That night, our dinner was seafood. Went to a malay stall selling so called fresh seafood. Order a grill fish and a few side dish..i started to realize the awkward combination of taste Langkawi had. Not that it is not delicious, it is delicious but it does not really entertain my tastebud. I guess people in langkawi love sweet and spicy food. I cannot tolerate that. I love salty and maybe not spicy but sweet and spicy is too much for me.

A tiring day. Tomorrow perhaps the last day for us to tour langkawi. So much place to visit. Hopefully we manage to do everything as plan..

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…
