Malaysia : A Historical July

While US is celebrating their independence day recently, a few historical thing also happen in our country, Malaysia.

First of all, it's Ramadhan. Ironically, Ramadhan is a month which Muslim fast from dawn until sunset but when you say Ramadhan in Malaysia, it's all about food anyway. Food Baazar is everywhere and mosque start serving free food for everyone.

Nothing special about this year Ramadhan, same old, same old. This year, however, show that many people hold back on their expenses due to the bad economy surrounding this region, particularly this country Malaysia.

This month July also shows a surprising news regarding corruption allegation on our Prime Minister. He has been in a shaking boat since the last general election due to poor result for his party in general election, yet they still hold Malaysia under their party government. Then came the altantuya conspiracy, then Opposition leader being jailed which many believe is a move base on political interest to stop him from moving forward. Then came 1MDB scandal.. And now the corruption allegation by Wall Street Journal.

Hard to believe. It's historical. It's serious and I hope within this few weeks, there will be changes in Malaysia political situation.

Ringgit sink again today, what an unfortunate day for Malaysia. People are having a hard life trying to survive in this country economy.

Oil price hike in this country, while world oil price does not seem to change. Another history that we will never forget. Lots of rage have been thrown in social media regarding the mismanagement for this country causing citizen to bear the billions dollar debt which came from nowhere. Perhaps only people up there knew where all of this debt came from.

Otherwise, Malaysia is still surviving. Do not know until when but I hope everything will be alright. I saw this Greece economy crisis and I afraid our country is heading the same way.

Well, most of the issues that happen now in Malaysia involved politics. Is this bad? I do not thing so. For the first time, we can see that people in Malaysia are more interested in Politics rather than discount sale in shopping mall. More interested in politics rather than anything else. Coffee talks now are all about politics, all ages talking about politics - its a hot topic nowadays.

Can't avoid talking about politics even in my post now.

Pray for Malaysia... Hopefully a better Malaysia will not only be a dream..

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.

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…
