A guide to Satay Sipitang

What does Sipitang famous for? Where is Sipitang?

It has been 2 years plus working in Sipitang. I can see there is a few changes since the past 2 years. Before posted to work here, I never been to Sipitang. I know this place exist because my late grandfather use to be a police officer here. That is all that I know about this place.

Before I was posted here, my mother went and visit Sipitang with my dad and they told me one thing special about Sipitang...Satay.

Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia are famous with this meat on stick bbq delicacies. Every region have their own variety of Satay. In Malaysia, the famous satay that everyone talk about is Satay Kajang. So when people went to Kajang, people will say "go eat Satay". Satay capital of Malaysia.

But guess what, there are satay capital right here in Sabah. If you ever been to Sabah, there were no Satay places that you can visit which is so special. Almost all satay available in Kota Kinabalu are only average. You want an above average satay. Where can you go for it? Sipitang.

Sipitang is famous for her Satay since.. i don't know since when. I never knew what was so special about Satay here. When I started working here, then I started to see what the fuss is all about.

Sipitang satay, maybe not that special like Satay Kajang but what special about it is there are a lot of people selling satay here.

To get a taste of this, you can go to Esplanade Sipitang. An esplanade build by the government for people here to do some recreation, I guess ,just at the seaside. It was located in Sipitang town. Sipitang town is so small you can never miss this place.

What so special about it, there are like 10-15 stall selling satay here. Which one is the best, I also not sure about that. Every people here have their own opinion about that. Other than esplanade Sipitang, a row of stall in front of Sipitang famous supermarket "Gmart" you can also see a lot of stall selling satay. Other than that, there are a few more small stall in Tamu sipitang selling satay. Guess what, there are plenty of Satay here in Sipitang.

One unique thing about Satay here, you do not need to wait until evening to get a taste of Satay. You can come as early as 10 am and there are plenty of satay grilled on a hot charcoal everywhere. Everywhere there will be smoke from this charcoal grill for Satay.

I can't find stall selling Satay for lunch in Kota Kinabalu, maybe there is that I am not aware of but very rare. Here in Sipitang, you can eat Satay all day long.

If you have a party of something and you need to order satay, no need to pre-order it. You can just walk in and there will be plenty go Satay for you to bring home. Even thousand of it.

If people ask me, is Satay in Sipitang good? I would not answer anything to them. In fact, I find satay here taste like satay. Nothing worth to say about the taste. It's just satay.

However, if you want a good one, there are a few stall which I recommend. One is Alif Satay, Satay Siga-siga, Satay Hjh Tominah, and satay Waris. This few stall sell very good satay. Juicy, tender, and the peanut sauce is licking good. The rest, I haven't try them all even after 2 years staying here in Sipitang.

I will miss Sipitang Satay later after I transfer to Kota Kinabalu soon....

Some of my friends say to me that Sipitang Satay are not that special and I will answer to them, not that special but nothing more special than Satay Sipitang. Its the culture i am seeking for and not solely about the taste.

Me and my daughter in Esplanade Sipitang. 

I try to find a picture of Satay but I couldn't find on in my Mac. I will post Satay Picture if I found one.

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…
