Family or Money: An opinion.

Which one is more important? Family or Money. 

Some random colleague ask me this question at work. Perhaps 10 years ago, it would be so easy to answer such question. Today, it was one of the question that would produce a lot of controversial answers. Everyone will have their own opinion on this matter. 

A family is an important thing because without your family, your child, your wife, life would be meaningless. This is the driven force for you to wake up everyday and work hard to improve yourself. Watching them happy will make you happy. They are the one who will be with you no matter you are up or you are down below. Some even say that your family can be the one who will accompany you there in the afterlife. You have a lot of sin, in hell you will be with them, you a a good person then you will be in heaven with them. A smile on my daughter's face is enough heaven for me. 

Since thousand years ago, money have been labelled as evil. You want to portrait somebody who are evil, portrait them holding a bunch of money, they will look evil somehow. No matter how good a person are, a picture of them with lots of money will give a perspective that they are bad. Money should not be chosen over family. 

It is as easy as that.... years ago. World has change. How human behaviour change with time ( before and after internet for example), money also has change how we think nowadays. Money breaks family. Yes. But how does money breaks a family? By having no money... some says by having too much money also produce the same outcome. It will be very hard for you to maintain a good family system by just saying that you will without money in your hand. A wife, a child, need something to eat, and in this era of global economy, you can't find vegetables or fish on your house lawn or at the back of your kitchen. Furthermore if you are living in an apartment. You basically need to buy everything to feed your family. 

Now the question family or money will make you answer in between. A balance between money and family would do best for most people. No matter how important money is, your family should not be second. And no matter how much you care of your family, money should always be there for their needs. 

Life is not what we are thought in children storybook when we were child. 

(However the storybook is necessary....if you know life would be like this...what's the fun of it then?)

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…
