Win Cafe @ Financial Park Labuan: Variety of Food, Less in Taste.

So I was back in Labuan last week to celebrate my daughter birthday party along with aqiqah and 'Cukur Jambul" ceremony for my second daughter. This time, I was determined to taste some of the newly open restaurant in Labuan.

After a bit of discussion (basically just randomly picked), we chose Win Cafe which is located at Ground Floor Financial Park. This place previously was occupied by..some shops ( I forgot what shop). Located in front of Aifa Electrical shops.

Environment wise, this place provide a good old rustic but classy looking eating place. Calm, clean, and all the worker looked professional. When you walk in, you feel like you are going into a high class fancy restaurant.

Nevertheless, the restaurant provide affordable and variety of food. Ranging from western to local cuisine. Food prices almost all, are below RM20. The steak was priced based on how many gram of beef do you want. That was cool.

There were buffet lunch promotion where you pay RM12 to eat as much as you can from their limited chicken and fish dishes with unlimited rice and plain soup. Did not try that though.

We, instead, choose to eat ala carte menu.

My wife ordered Char Kueh Teow with Clam. The odd thing was, there were no clam inside it. Only prawn, my wife said that to me after she finished eating. The taste was so so. No special thing to brag about. 

My sister in the other hand went for an Oblong beef burger. The beef was hand made. The thing about this burger was the patty taste. It taste sweet, vinegary sour, smell like old pickles. It was Worchestershire sauce that make it taste like that, I guess. My sister did not like it. But I think it's okay for those who are used to that kind of taste. 

I ordered Maryland chicken chop. The chicken was big (but actually the crusted flour make it look big). Nothing special about it. It was served with a kind of sauce which I think also taste like Worchestershire or Hp sauce. Sour, black pepper taste sauce. 

Our desert turn out well. Nothing goes wrong with ice cream, chocolate, caramel, and peanuts. 

In conclusion, this place was ambitious. I praised that. It tries to bring an affordable western and asian cuisine in one place. The environment was nice, the waiter and waitress were polite. Variety of menu. Good proportion of food. However, I think they need to enhance their flavour in every meal. It was not enough, serving a chicken chop, for example, that look like one but does not taste like one. I am a fan of chicken chop and I can tell that there were a lot of better chicken chop than this place. I think they need to turn down a bit on their Worchestershire or Hp sauce and just try to make it as simple as possible but taste great. 

I give this place 2.5/5 in rating. For their effort, I would still recommend this place to others and perhaps will went there again when I am in Labuan.

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…
