Natto : I Did Not Acquire That Taste Yet

So today, I went to Imago KK again. I love visiting Everrise supermarket inside that mall. So many imported goods that I can find and try out. As for today, I manage to grab a few premium cut sirloin strip, a sheep case hot and spicy sausage and Natto. All random things that I want to try.

So the first thing that I try is the Natto. A japanese fermented beans that supposed to be healthy and a staple for Japanese cuisine. I have been warned that this Natto is an acquired taste or something like that. I may not like it the first time but maybe I will later in the future.

It could be like Miso. The first time I tried Miso Soup, I found it taste just like a wet unwashed towel. I never thought that I will like it later. After a few times trying that stuff, I now love it. It is a must soup when I visit a Japanese restaurant.

I use some guidelines in Google on how to prepare Natto. It's pretty simple. It was package in a small polystyrene container. Inside, there is something oily additional ingredients, just like instant noodle and a small package of something that look like mustard. I just mix those two and stir it well.

Ate it with a hot rice...and.... I had enough after the second bite. It taste like.... bad food.. I had this fried rice where the cooks use too old rice and it became sticky. It has the similar taste.

As a conclusion.. I don't like it very much. I don't think I will try it again. Those in the internet say that I need to eat it a few times to get the taste right. I am not convinced to eat it again.

Maybe someone would want to convince me and to give me a few tips to be able to accept this Natto?

Email me at

For now. I will keep my second package of Natto inside my refrigerator until someone tell me something that can move me to eat that food again.

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…
