Putatan Platinum Apartment: The Charges

I finally able to enter my house. Still under renovation, it basically empty with only electric and water. I could live with that. So I try staying there for 3 nights before I went on to my next trip to Kuching,Sarawak. Free place to stay, save money. I don't need TV or furniture. I just need a clean floor, a pillow and an electric fan to keep me cool.

From my observation, this neighborhood is not the best neighborhood after all. There is a slum just beside this apartment area, and i do not know whether that slum looked village is even legal. The people there look illegal. One word to describe this place, it's overcrowded. With lots of shop and hypermarket (even a mall), everyday traffic are congested.

Anyhow, the second day I'm in this apartment, the first thing I check is the mailbox. Wow, there are a lot of charges that i need to pay. Do i even own my own house apartment? I do not know. I feel like I'm renting in this place.

There are services charges, sinking fun, fire insurance, water bill... A total of 300+ ringgit. Sigh. I need a second parking and there is also a charge for that, 60 ringgit per month.

If I want to renovate my house i need to deposit 1000. If I bought a furniture, I need to deposit 500. Why do i need to pay deposit for work to be done at my own house!? Turn out that the deposit need to cover damage (if any) at the common area while renovation work. We didn't own the common area!

To think it logically, I pay that much money to the developer and that money , I believe, use to make that common area. I doubt the developer use their own money to create the common area.

This is the worse apartment management I have seen so far. But I just want to keep myself below the radar, so i just pay that deposit and hopefully I can  renovate my house without any disturb.

Perhaps later i will stay here a bit more longer.

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.

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…
