Putatan Platinum Apartment: The Worst and Ugly truth

I have written about this apartment ugly side again and again. However, I have yet to see any improvement done. So after a few months, I still write about the ugly truth about this apartment.

This apartment is located near putatan city center. Easy access to hypermarket, shops and restaurant. It look bright and shiny from the outside however after owning of the unit in this apartment, I have found the ugly truth about living in such apartment.

The management is the worse apartment management I ever encounter with. And yes, I am not born yesterday, I have my fair share of experience staying in different apartment before this. This is my first own apartment, yes, before this I always be a renter.

I always thought that owning would bring more privileges compare to be a renter but I was wrong. Paying for almost 200K for a unit (with loan interest summing up to 500-600K), I would thought that this is my apartment, I live in it, and I own it, nobody can order me around like what I always encounter when I am renting. I was wrong, I've said this twice.

First of all, I live in an environment that look like I am renting. I can't bring furniture without paying deposit, I can't hammer a nail in my house without permit. Can't do anything basically without permit.

Now I can't bring my second car in due to the rules of one house one car park. There are a few car park that was left empty for years so I had to use that while awaiting to rent a car park from someone else or from the management itself. However, now my second car was deny entry. They order me to park outside the apartment gate where it was dark and dirty as the river bank construction is ongoing. If a metal or a rock fall on my car, nobody ill be responsible for that.

I can't renovate my door gate as will, can't install aircond compressor except the designated area of the house which will cost me a thousand extra to install.

Everything is about rule and rule and tule.

But this is my house. I work hard to earn money to pay bank for it. I even pay RM70+ per month for the service charge that supposed to be the money that was use to pay that management staff and even the security guard and every personel working in this apartment.

Complain to management..they refuse to listen until i give up in complaining. They will simply made a new rules and that't it. Without any discussion with the owner in the first place.

So I feel like living in my house which does not look like my house. Once I step outside my door, everything was own by the management ( where's the logic in that?). They should sell this house below 50k if they still want to own it like their own house.

Okay, let me be clear here. The issue of parking, renovation and whatever I just told, could be the thing that the management want to keep in place for the benefit of us, the owner ( I don't see how). However, what is more important actually is for the management to tackle the issue of security in this apartment, Still hearing house breaking activity here and there. Still having those 'mat rempit' making loud noise and racing in the car park, still having suspicious house that look like a modus operandi for non local to hide. They won't bother to tackle such issue.

What they bother is to keep my second car outside the apartment area.

Where is justice for me? Don't buy apartment they said....give me back my Rm173000 and for sure I will kick myself out of this apartment and find a better house to stay.

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…
