Why No Nursery in Hospital Queen Elizabeth KK?

This post title was a question thrown to me by my assistant in Clinic. Well, she has a point there. Queen Elizabeth Hospital or QEH is the biggest hospital here in the whole Sabah. I am pretty sure there are more than a thousand people working here. Most of them, have children.

The question started to pop out after realising that UTC, just a few hundred meter away from this hospital have their own nursery for their staff. This question might be raised from a jealousy towards UTC.

I have to admit that nursery is kind of important now. Even for me, one that considered myself 'just don't give a ---- ' type of person, I do give a ---- about having nursery near work place.

At this time went all price of goods going up and salary always stagnant for quite sometime, hiring a person to nurse your children at home would not be a good idea after all. Nursery would be a cheaper choice, a few hundred ringgit cheaper.

I am not being a cheapskate, but my family do have to eat rice everyday through out the month.

So where does this question go? How do I answer?

Maybe someone will answer it somewhere in the near future. As far as I know, I will always support the idea of creating a nursery in QEH. One that run by a registered people and that place must be specific for QEH staff like what UTC did.

As for now, have to survey the best nursery for children near QEH.

Do you all have any suggestion on which nursery to sent your children when you are working in QEH?

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…
