Desa Dairy Farm Kundasang: Never stop to please me.

One thing that I love when visiting Kundasang is to visit the Desa Cattle farm. People would suggest to me to go to Poring Hot Spring, or Tagal Fish Massage, but only Desa cattle farm that attract me that much. That is why for I do not know how many times already, I brought my wife, daughter and my parents to visit this place. 

I can't stop loving this place, despite the smell of cow's dung, the rest of it is heavenly. The view was so relaxing it make me forget everything about work. It is good place to run away from your daily job stress. 

In Kundasang, there is a particular motel that I will always choose to stay for the night. Strawberry Garden Hotel. It is not a hotel, more like a motel, but that place for me is the best place to say when in Kundasang. Located at 1500 feet above sea level, the hotel does not has fan or air conditioner yet we never had a thought to look for it when we stay there. The air was so cool. At night, we still need a comfy blanket to warm ourselves. 

Why does that place called Strawberry garden? Well obviously because there was a garden full of strawberry behind that hotel. You can visit that garden but you can't pick a strawberry. You need to buy from the counter if you want one. However, for me, honestly, imported strawberry sold in the Kota Kinabalu city somehow much cheaper. Their strawberries are organic somehow, so for those who are organic obsess, maybe its worth it. I do not think so. 

I still bought a few plate of strawberry with honey and cream though as a snack at night during our stay. 

The cattle farm, as usual, is fun. Especially for kids. My daughter and her cousin never stop running here and there playing with animals in this cattle farm. They now provide an interactive section for visitors to touch and feed goat and cow. My daughter can never stop feeding the goat. She now always recognise when she saw a goat somewhere. 

Will this be the last time I visit this place? Certainly not. Every time I have a free weekend, I will never hesitate to visit this place again. 

p/s: However, GST has bring so much burden to me and all of Malaysian citizen. Spending quality time with family now feel like spending quality time and money for the government too.. I do not care about money for a quality time like this but, you can't just ignore GST. Everything need to pay GST, hotel, food, snack...sigh. 

This is the view of the farm. Relaxing. Cool. So beautiful. A bit of warning, this place is so smelly (what do you expect from a cow's farm). Nevertheless, after a while your smell sensation will get use to it and the smell will goes away. 

Us. Having a great time after more than 2 years busy working in District hospital. We did not have that much time to spend when I was in Sipitang.

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?

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…
