MAS ticket to Labuan OVERPRICED!!!

This is reality. World is turning upside down. I was alone in my home, my daughter is in labuan and I miss her and guess what, Labuan was not that far away from Kota Kinabalu. i should take a plane this weekend and go and visit her.

This is where the dilemma start for all Labuanite who work in Kota Kinabalu. It was not far, Labuan was  considered a part of Sabah. Modes of transportation are varies. You can go by road and take a ferry, or just take a ferry directly from Kota Kinabalu, or use airplane. 

The most convenience way is to use airplane. 30 minutes flight, available day and night. If you use road, you can only travel at day time as all ferries to Labuan are not operational after 4-5 pm. The last flight to Labuan is at 9-10pm. 

So after work on Friday, it would be nice to be on that plane to Labuan. 

There are one major problem in that, air tickets are so OVERPRICED. Can you imagine for that 30 minutes flight, you need to pay around RM150 for one way ticket. They did not even served food on that trip ( no time to serve). They only gave you a drink, by the time you finish sipping that drink, you are arrived. 

Why this air ticket so expensive? I cannot think of any good reason for it. Th price is the same if you buy air ticket to Kuching, and if you add a hundred ringgit, you will be arrived in Kuala Lumpur. Can you imagine the difference of distance from Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur compare to Labuan? 1636 to 121 kilometres. That's 13 times the difference. 

The airticket to Kuala Lumpur must be RM2000 plus but no. The airticket to Labuan is actually OVERPRICED!!!

Malaysia Airlines should go bankrupt with this overpriced air ticket. But wait? Why are they still people buying? 

Simple, only Malaysia Airlines offering flight from KK to Labuan with no competition. 

I hope someone should address this problem. Or perhaps invite competition to open flight from KK to Labuan. (Previously airasia had flight to Labuan for RM90). I really want to go Labuan this weekend, but air mode will not be on my consideration.

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.

A Guide to Apply for Master in Pathology (Mpath) 
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…
