Do you agree to Live by a Dress Code?

Everyone is talking about dress code nowadays. A lot of blog and article even post in social media regarding people denied entry into government premise in Malaysia due to wearing a short skirt. They were told to wear sarong ( a traditional malay kind of long skirt) before allowed entry. 

People going crazy about this and start attacking government sector and pouring more fuel to the racial hatred fire that is burning around Malaysia nowadays. 

Some people disagree with the act of forcing people to wear Sarong while the other blaming those short skirt wearing women for not dressing politely before going to government sector. 

I disagree on the later. 

I am a Muslim and I know that ‘aurat’ is a serious matter in our religion. My wife is covering her head and my daughter perhaps later will be teach on how to cover her head according to Islamic way.

However, I do not agree if you are implementing a dress code for everyone. As you all know, time has change. People nowadays are free to choose what they want to believe and what they want to practice. Why do we need to choose for other?

If someone wearing a short skirt going to government counter, what is wrong with that? They say its the dress code, have to wear politely but polite bring different definition for different people. For example, a  female wearing a skull necklace, wearing a long jeans and boots, hair cut short or even bald, with tattoo… is this polite? Compare this to a girl that dress decently wearing a short skirt and a T-Shirt. 

A girl wearing a T-Shirt printed on the chest area “Fuck you”, is this polite? Yes she is wearing a T-Shirt, a long pants, and how can this be more polite than wearing a short Skirt?

Yes, wearing a bra and thong, a bikini could be not appropriate, but maybe in the future, this could be polite in definition. Just look how those people in the past dress. I believe an american teenage girl in the 70’s dressed more politely than our so called Muslim girl. 

Definition of polite is vary from person to person. 

So about the dress code. I am not agreeing to the fact that people can wear short skirt, sometime I hate it too but this is due to how I grew up as a muslim. I do not particularly hate that person just how she dress. 

But I am 100% disagree on dress code. I do not want to live by the dress code. As you can see, dress code is like a rule by a regime. Dress code is like a dictator way of telling people, you do as I say. Dress code is a rule that will make our mind stunted. We will not progress, we will not be a better country if we choose to abide to a dress code. 

I am against all dress code, dress code for school children, dress code for college student, dress code for University student, you will eventually died wearing what someone told you to wear. 

You can say, please wear shoes or do not be naked, that’s acceptable, but to make a rule saying you must not wear this, you must wear like this…please - we are living in 2015. This is not 1990s. 

I wear T-shirt to go shopping with slippers, I do not wear neck tie to work, I wear short sleeves as opposed to long sleeves for my grade in government. I do not wear lab coat when I see patient. Because for me dress code is like having your both hand cuffed by someone that you possibly do not know your entire life. Dress code is for prison, yes. Dress code is for North Korea kind of country, yes. Dress code is not for me. 

So for me, if you want to wear anything at all, it’s your choice.  Don’t let people told you what to do. You only live for a time period, it’s for you to choose how you want to dress, if you want to go to government sector. 

Just wear something....that'll be enough.

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…
