Bersih 4: When People Take It Out To The Street.

Minions.

It's like the minions fever all over again. Yellow colour is everywhere. I am not sure why yellow colour was chosen, perhaps because of it's striking colour, easily visible to everyone. This is the fourth time Malaysian have to do rally on the street to voice out their critics to the on going corruption and demand for a clean electoral process in Malaysia.

That was supposed to be the agenda in Bersih, multiple NGO combine together and create something like this. When it first created, everyone has a mixed feeling about it. It's the fourth time now with Bersih 4.0, and we still have that kind of feeling. Everything did not change since it was first held.

I am no supporter to street rally, I maybe one of those unpatriotic Malaysian who rather sit at home watching TV. Actually I just had a new baby so going out for a street rally was not an option for me. I may not be a supporter for street rally but I find it necessary to do. People do not just simply held a rally for fun. There must be a cause for it.

I am a big fan of democracy. Living in Malaysia, I am 29 years old now, I can see democracy is fading away. Or maybe it was not there since the beginning. For me, you can express whatever you want as you are free, you are not a slave to anybody. We are living in an independence country, not a dictator or a regime one. So we are supposed to be able to choose whatever we want and how we want it. You want to go shopping, just go. You want to create a traffic jam by going shopping altogether at the same time, you do it. Nobody has the right to stop you unless you cause harm to others.

So, even if I did not march on the street or support any of this thing, but I find it hard to accept what our Government has done to this Bersih kind of activity.

People demanding for clean electoral system..nothing wrong with that.
People demanding to stop corruption and money laundering..nothing wrong with that.
People demanding for a better Malaysia, nothing wrong with that.
People want corrupted leader to step down..nothing wrong with that.

But why in the hell everything is wrong with this peaceful rally and assembly all over the national 'government' TV? Why in the hell everyone, from top gov official, to police, to all government agency trying to stop this from happening.

For me, thing is simple. You do something wrong, people angry and go against you, you apologise and step back and stop doing whatever you are doing because you are doing it all wrong.

My reasoning does not work here in this country.

I may not support street rally, but I really see this country going down pretty fast. With corruptiion everywhere (common, don't act like you are innocent. Corruption and bribery is in our blood. Just don't call it bribe, call it donation or something else), I cannot afford to support this current trend and let this country that I love become like any other corrupted country in the world. I want Malaysia to stand proud as a better country, a country free from corruption and bribery.

I want every cent of tax money that I pay being used to make this country a better place for my children to live. Not for the children of politician to enjoy with.

When I read that Gov order all Government servant to not support this kind of activity (activity demanding for a better country), I smiled sarcastically. We pay taxes, we work for the government, and we are supposed to have our right to demand thing.

Nevertheless, I hope that everything went on smoothly for those who take it out to the street.

Remember Gandhi? Non violence will win eventually he said, history told us so.

Make it peaceful. Make Malaysian proud by showing that we are still have our freedom here in this country.

Forget the outcome, we may not get what we want, but at least we try. At least you all try.

I just going to sit back watching the progress and taking care of my newborn daughter. She is very cute. And I am going to call her 'stream of courage'. Because I hope one day, she will have that courage to stand up and be a better person than me.




***p/s***

I just read that Our Prime Minister was saying those who join Bersih 4 are not patriotic... Well, I thought it was patriotic. Now I know that I was not. I thought demanding for a better Malaysia is patriotic. I guess I am wrong. He said so. Should we support corruption now?

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.

Haha.

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…
