Food Celebrity: Eat with a Talent.

Just a few years ago, we would watch a cooking show in our free channel tv. Once in a while, this chefs who were cooking in that show start travelling around cooking all over the places. Then they start travelling. Then there were Anthony Bourdain.

Yes, he was the first chef turn celebrity that I watched on the television. Just before Malaysia had her own food hunting shows which was called "Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan". Then, everything just explode. Now there were a dew channels dedicated just for this kind of show, plus cooking show. Then, there were hundreds of food celebrity start appearing in our TV.

For me, Anthony Bourdain set the baseline of this travelling and eating show. He is my favourite. His reaction were genuine, his words were honest and sometimes to bold. He critics or praised the food as every other person would do. Reviewing food will not be that great if everything is good and delicious (sponsored would not agree), its about the real taste so that nobody will be disappointed if someone decided to try that food.

Andy Zimmermen was the second person that I would choose to believe in term of reviewing food.

There were a few celebrity that were too suck on their job on becoming a food celebrity. No need to mention which one but those are the one that have no genuine reaction upon tasting the food. Everything was delicious, everything was mmmmm....nodding head in agreement, or just moving their face all around to prove that something is delicious. That reaction is lame.

Those who are good, minus the two master I mentioned above (Mr Bourdain and Zimmerman), will expressed their genuine taste reaction, sometimes it was delicious, sometimes it was..erk.

It is a talent. Those who have that talent were performing well now in many food channel in the TV. I

As for me, my favourite food celebrity would be as I mentioned, Anthony bourdain and Zimmerman. The others include that girl named Sarah Benjamin (she can cook), Chef Malcolm and that female DJ in the radio (forgot her name, their show called Back to the street), Park Soo Jin and the other women in Tasty Road (they really know how to eat), that girl in Delicious Korea (also forgot her name), Janet Hsieh ( I've seen her in Fun Taiwan), there were a few from Japan (can't remember them because there were a lot of people who really know how to eat in Japan).

This few that I mentioned, I love to see them hosting their show.

The most awkward food celebrity ever, even I do not want to mention them, but I will just give a hint, most of them from VICE shows. I do not know why VICE took them as a host in a food show.

They all eat with a talent. They were talented, for sure. Sometimes, I have this thought, that a long time ago, it was impossible to have a career where you were paid to eat.

Everything seem possible today.

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.

1. Make up your mind. I've seen a few of my friends who apply for this pathway and get confused before it begin. Ask yourself, are you really interested in Pathology? Do you know what pathology is? Do you know what kind of work are you going to do in Pathology. 
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…
