Malaysia oil price increase by 20 cent.

Oil price went up last night. Mixed reaction can be observed over the internet. Some of them saying that it is not a big deal, why so angry about it. Look around as other country have higher oil price than our country.We should not be relying upon government subsidy anymore.

Other people get angry. Expecting that the government is making the citizen life difficult. Afraid of impending higher cost of living and some of them 'congratulates' people who voted for current Malaysia government party on last election.

"why angry? People need to understand the whole situation here. Our country did not have enough money to cope with current global economic trend so we have to modified ourselves. Oil price hike is a must" a facebook comment appear after 12 midnight.

For my point of view, i will be more pro on behalf of the people who are frustrated with this move. Not to say that I am supporting fully to the opposition (as opposition already predict this will happen if current government win last last election. For me, people who said that oil price hike is necessary also right but I do not agree that we should accept this thing as it is. As it never will have any impact on our future and our daily living.

People who supported this move as i observed tend to think about the center of the problem only which is oil price went up 20 cent per litre. Does not really reflect any problem there. However, do not be so comfortable and feel inside that circle of centre only.

What make people uncomfortable actually is the real damage this move will make. Imagine oil price as a circle. Outside the circle is an infinite border which other problem located. Thinking on the enlarging circle will be not significant but try to imagine how much movement of space will be created by only a few millimeters change in the circle diameter.

This worry me and everybody else. Do you remember when during Tun Abdullah period when he push up the oil price? Everything went up, house price, land price, goods, car, electric, vegetables, fruits, service charge, everything. The oil price went down later but other stuff prices never went down.

A simple 20 cent increase in oil price will ultimately causing all the selfish business people pushing what they sell to double up in price. As crazy as it sound, the cost of living will become higher than ever. It will stay there eventually.

Other area outside the circle is not about the increasing other goods prices but regarding how government spend their money. How much have we spend to unnecessary thing. How much government spend on campaigning in last election, how much money they have spend on 1Malaysia campaign, how much money have been spend by corrupted politician and corrupted government worker. I can see that 1malaysia laptop now are selling fast around Sabah. Selling fast when it supposed to be free. All this corrupted act should be look upon as moving the oil price will make citizen unrest and feeling unfair.

As i say, it is infinite border. I can't describe everything in this post. Just think whatever you want to think about and try to relate it with oil price increase. It will relate somehow.

So i hope that those people who are pro government, you are not wrong but try to think about this before you start calling people immature or no brainer when people get angry with oil price increase. Sometimes, we were very sure we are right, in the end we forgot to look around and think. Think outside the box. Think outside the circle.

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…
