Child Safety in Malaysia: A Worrisome Attitude of Malaysian.

To begin with, is Malaysia a child safe country?

A question that most people would answer yes without even thinking due to the patriotism in their heart and believe that Malaysia is the safest country whatever it is.

I would answer could be...but not yet. When we were out in a mall, and we are still experiencing some degree of fear that our child might get kidnapped or fall from height, that is mean that we are not totally child safe yet.

Facilities, services, environment, and a lot of thing need to be fixed to make sure our child are always safe no matter where they are. However, these can be done but attitude.

I am a bit worry about Malaysian attitude towards child safety. For example, when a parent was jailed oversea due to the offence of hitting their children to pray cause a havoc in Malaysia. People start giving their opinions toward the case. Most of them worrisome. Most of them disagree with the law giving jail sentence to that parent. For them, it was the right to do. To hit a child for refusing to pray.

When someone saying that physical punishment for school children is irrelevant nowadays, social media was stir with a lot of teacher saying that person should not give her opinion and physical punishment sound like a must for them to discipline a child.

Not to forget, parent living their child in a car until that child got heat stroke, children shocked by electric, drowning, missing, kidnapped in front of their house..all this accident and criminal thing that keep spawning everyday in our newspaper.

We are not safe for children as for now. Forget the above paragraph about the accident and criminal act. Let just focus on the first two example I gave above. This way of thinking is worrisome. How can people still think that hitting a child is a correct method to discipline them. Do you ever got bitten hard by your teacher or parent and think that is the only way to make you what you are right now?

People would then attack me with their religious opinion, their past traumatic life, and whatever reason they want to throw to support that hitting a child is the only way but THINK!

Think for a while. Is it fair for them? The child. Think of a boxing match with a contender weighing 50 kg vs a contender weighing 100 kg. Is it fair?

Why don't Malaysian, before using their religious knowledge or past traumatic life, use logic first. Why don't we put child safety and right first before anything else. Do you disagree? If you do not, then you must seek expert consultation. Trust me. What your father or teacher had done to you had cause you some psychological trauma. Please see a psychologist stat.

We should have a strict law enforcement to protect our children. They are the generation that would keep this country alive. If they could not be discipline without physical punishment, then its enough.

We do not need anymore leader who never listen and learn until we knock their head or something!

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…
