Malaysian Official 1: The billions USD all around the world

So suddenly, everything in Social Media went haywire this week with this #MalaysianOfficial1 post everywhere. For all Malaysian, it was not a surprised news after all. We all have been experiencing this thing for more than a year now. 

Since Sarawak Report published an allegation regarding the mismanagement of 1MDB, this issue never really closed in the heart of Malaysian even though government closed it for good around last year if I am not mistaken. 

Let the authorities do their investigation and their job. 

Poor Malaysian..

Anyway, I am writing this post not because of I am trying to get involved in this mess or something, as Malaysia government now are very restrictive in what their citizen says (like living in a dictator country or something), let just leave it this way, I am writing because I am amazed on how much money can there be for a person to use. 

I mean like, USD3.5 billions, that's like RM14 billions of money, how many zero there is for that? I am really amazed on that. 

When I listen to the news, I am not thinking about the case actually, I am more on trying to imagine what would I do with such money? 

It must be fun. Haha. I am working my ass off every day to get a decent payment as a doctor... My wife also a doctor. Both of us get the same payroll every month, yet there we are, still arguing about how to make it until the next payroll, still trying our best to save for our small family. Now, when I enter Master Program, I need to rent my own house, our expenses increases, we almost not had enough for one month. 

Do we drive ferrari? Do we own a bungalow? Do we wear rolex, Gucchi or Prada? No. We just own a 850 square feet apartment, a persona car each (which we bought before we married during housemen year)...that's all. 

Utility, internet, phone bill, electricity, water, service charge for apartment, food, diapers, milk, cloth...all are not cheap nowadays. 

Now as we live separately (I'm in peninsular and she in Sabah), plus my house rent, utility and bills increases in amount. 

It was a tough time for both of us. Yet, I hear this 3.5 billions, 2.6 billions, 4 billions, and a lot of billions here and there, I feel much money can we own. 

 I wish I had an amount of money that much. Half that much or even quarter that much also a blessing if I did. 

Maybe someday, we will all have that amount of money. People say money is not everything. Yes it is true but it is very necessary to differentiate that statement from a true meaningful statement and just pure lazy ignorance. It was easy to say that, but when you do not have enough money to put on the table every month in the form of food and other necessity for your wife and  children, the statement can be purely wrong. 

I just hope to finish my study and bring something better for my family. As for now, I feel like I am a complete useless...

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…
