Price Hike: A reality Not A Fiction

Did anyone other than me realise that all price of goods are hiking?!

I do not want to believe this but this is real. It's happening. All over Malaysia, or maybe just my city? I want to believe it's all over Malaysia.

Eating out now seems to be not an option but a luxury when you have money. Not eating out in a fancy restaurant, eating out even on fast food restaurant. Even on a regular common people restaurant.

For example, just now I went to Peppermint restaurant. A restaurant I usually visit when I want to taste vietnamese style chicken rice. When I was in Med school, a plate of that chicken rice was RM4.50. After that when I started working, the price went up to RM5.50. Now a plate of the same chicken rice cost me RM7. Now the rice is lesser in portion and the chicken, I guess, 20% reduced in amount. That price was not including GST.

A McDonald double cheese burger usually cost RM9-Rm10 per set now went up to RM12-RM13, not including GST.

Okay, let's not talk about those 'fancy' thing. Just look at common household. A soy sauce that I used to buy cost RM4.50 now went up to RM6. Maggi instant noodle usually cost RM4.00+ now went up to RM5+. Not including GST some more.

The list goes on and on and on.....

Where is the promise by those top politician saying that Gov will always help us citizen by enforcing a strict law to make sure nobody increase price of goods after GST. Do we all still remember how we all were answered by the common answers saying that GST will bring price down not up. Do the math. Now we already do the math and the math tell us different thing. Numbers don't lie, politician do.

Somehow, life goes on. We were all 'happy' living in this 'harmony' country. 'No other country' is better than us.

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.

A Guide to Apply for Master in Pathology (Mpath) 
1. Make up your mind. I've seen a few of my friends who apply for this pathway and get confused before it begin. Ask yourself, are you really interested in Pathology? Do you know what pathology is? Do you know what kind of work are you going to do in Pathology. 
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…
