Restoran sagomas: Ambuyat

Sago, in relation of borneo,  is a staple food for many tribe.  One can eat it like a powder form mix with fruits,  turn into flour and make cakes,  Sago is versatile.

For malay brunei people,  everyone must know a very well known delicacies which usually eaten during family gathering which is called ambuyat. 

Ambuyat made from ambulong (sago flour) poured with boiled water.  It will form a substance with the consistency of a commercial glue but a bit thicker.  Usually eaten using "candas" which look like a chopstick along with fish and vegetables.  There will be also lime and bird eye chillie sauce for dipping the ambuyat.

As this cuisine only be eaten during family gathering,  it is very rare for you to find a restaurant that serve this in their menu.  There is a few, and yes,  only a few to mention. 
There is one particular restaurant committed to announcw their specialty in this cuisine.  Sagomas restaurant. Located at Lumat centre near beaufort,  this retaurant will be on your right on your way to beaufort town. 

For me,  this new restaurant is exceptionally acceptable.  The ambuyat serve similar to the traditional ambuyat serve by my family.  If you never taste one,  you can taste ambuyat here.
I don't like ambuyat that much even I am a malay brunei.  If you are like me,  rest assure because there are plenty of other good menu here.  Try their Mee kari banjir,  ayam penyet and variety for stir fry food. Mee kari banjir is a must if you do not eat ambuyat here.

Overall,  taste wise i gave 4/5, the restaurant is new so it is clean,  the staff os friendly.  If you are on your way to Sarawak,  brunei,  sipitang or beaufort, you can have your stop here and get some ambuyat dose before you reach yoir destination.  Haha. 


While my family enjoyed their ambuyat, I prefer this one, Mee kari banjir.

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?

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…
