Freedom of Speech In Malaysia: Opinion

A freedom can only be achieved with a great speech. It has been proved since the beginning of our civilised humanity. You can claimed that you have achieved freedom with guns, however history has proven, this was wrong. Everywhere in the world, a country can only be a reality with a great speech from a great leader. A great leader comes only once in a while, sometime can be once in a very long time.

To project a great speech, ironically, you need a freedom. This is what making everything become all complicated in the first place. You can have your great speech, but without freedom you can't say it out loud in public for people to hear. Without this great speech, you will not get freedom, it's a perfect or should I just say 'imperfect' cycle.

World media is trying to prove that there is no freedom of speech in Malaysia. I think this is totally wrong. We have an equally freedom of speech to compare with other democratic country. We can say whatever we want, to criticise and to give our opinion in public. Medium such as internet and social media are making this freedom of speech a real thing. No matter how much hatred those people that are trying to shut down social media - to stop people to give their opinion - there is nothing that can stop Malaysian to publicly share their opinion no matter what.

However, there are a few groups of people, blinded by power, money, and corruption that are trying to destroy this kind of freedom we have in this country. Here and there, we hear someone is trying to spread fear that you will be punished for saying your opinion out loud, you will be jailed for criticising the wrong, or perhaps to make your life of future generation destroy by not agreeing to whatever you are told to do. This group of peoples are the one who should be given a clear attention to prevent them to make this country a suppressed country in the future.

As for now, looking at how people fill up the street peacefully to voice out their expression, and to see social media become full of people criticising government tax system, it's a great example for freedom of speech. I can't say Malaysia is not a democratic country.

I could not say Malaysia is a total democratic country, though. We are kind of premature and still trying to fix all thing. More and more people are making this freedom vanished by implementing a law that can be abuse to prohibit citizen to ever criticises the government. We have that kind of freedom but some official government just won't listen to the citizen.

As for now, what need to be fixed in my opinion is the ability of those government leader to accept critics and to try to learn to accept the voice of majority.

There will be two pathway that this country can chose. One is to go down the pathway where everybody is happy. We live peacefully as it is. Another one is to go down the pathway where happiness is no where to be found, we live in fear, and this cycle of trying to go to the first pathway will eventually repeat itself. Eventually, only one pathway can be chosen to save this country.

Happiness is what important. Not the money and development.

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…
