Malaysia's level of common sense? 10%.

I have written about common sense some time ago. I have stressed that common sense is a single important thing that we need to differentiate whether we are clever or stupid. Even in medicine, the knowledge itself was based on common sense and experience. That's how Hippocrates created the foundation of medicine. 

Even in other aspect of our life, common sense is important. If you want to fix a toilet, without any plumbing knowledge, at least you know you need to turn of the main water supply first. Or else..

If you want to fix an electrical appliances, it is a common sense to turn off the power first. Or else..

If you are going shopping, it is a common sense to check you wallet first before you go. Or else..

Everything is about having some degree of common sense. It is lacking in our beloved country Malaysia nowadays. I am hesitate to talk about politics but looking through google news and social media, and even national television, I can certainly detect not less than 90% lack in common sense. 

Money flowing into one's pocket, not a big deal said a minister... everyone can accept donation. Even it is 2.6 billion. 

Someone exposed a person evil deeds, blame the one who exposed it. 

Someone posed a crucial information about something, ask someone else to clarify the information. 

Someone clearly a threat to the nation, arrest someone else who speak about saving the nation. 

And the list go on... 

How lack our common sense are? 

It is not very difficult to talk with common sense, just speak out the truth. Not denying the wrong. If someone speak with honesty and a bit of common sense, a small lie would not be so matter. 

However, if we speak without it, a small lie would be so obvious. 

I am expecting changes in our country now. If possible I want the change to be right now. At this moment. That would not happen. History told us so. 

(I have just read my entry years ago when I was a student, I talked about oil price increasing and good price follow that trend. But when the oil price went down, goods price still going up. It is still happening today. I felt like, everything did not change much in our country since 10-15 years ago. When will realise it?)

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…
