Part 1 Exam Pathology In Malaysia

Just finished my part 1 exam pathology. I am still worried at this moment because the result was not out yet. However, I should share my experience going through the exam. It was fun, at the same time can make one feel suicidal.

So, after 1 year of studying pathology, you will be tested on your knowledge in this part 1 exam. This exam is a compulsory exam to book yourself a place in part 2 of the program. Failing this exam will make you repeat the whole year of study. The exam will only be held once a year, so you will only have one chance to do it every year.

My exam this year held in University Sains Malaysia,Kota Bharu Kelantan. Every year they will change the venue. The exam was pretty simple in its format. 2 theory exam, 2 practical (OSPE) exam. (it does sound simple). The theory paper will be divided into 2 subject each, anatomical pathology + Microbiology, and Hematology+ Chemical pathology. So 1 theory exam will contain 2 subjects. in 1 theory exam there will be divided into t…

Master in Pathology Malaysia: Should You Consider

A direct question, should you consider taking Master in Pathology course in Malaysia? Before I answer this directly, I would first would like to congratulate for those who pass their entrance exam. Result were out last week. Some people celebrate their success getting through that exam, and some people just don't have enough luck to be accepted into the program.

One of them was my wife. She passed the exam, went for the interview, in the end, her name was left out, most likely due to bad economy nowadays. What is with the economy? I was thinking that maybe government does not have enough money to sponsor it's citizen to further their Master study, but the reason was not with the sponsorship. It's higher than that.

If government cannot sponsor its citizen to study, why don't just ask them people to pay for their study themselves? Solved the problem. However, I was told that it's not about the scholarship or we called it HLP, it's about the seat offered by the un…

Zalora, CollectCo: Return Refund and where to find them.

Ordered a belt from Zalora. I really love this belt with automatic leather buckle. The price can be very expensive. Original leather with that kind of buckle cost at least RM150 and above. However I found this belt in Zalora for only Rm44.90.

Is is a real leather? Yes. I am sick of this fake kind of leather. It prone to snap and break. The real leather are more elastic and more resistant to wear and tear.

One thing about shopping in Zalora is ( everyone will agree with this), is the size they advertise does not always match the real product. Who are working behind this Zalora stuff? Do they feel  guilty on lying to their customer. They were selling clothing, accessories, shoes, belt, online! Size does matter.

So, when the belt was advertise to be this length... what I received today is 20cm shorter. 20 cm!! I can accept plus minus 5. But this is 20cm. This is the second time such thing happened to me.

Rest assure. Zalora have 30 days return policy. You can return the item to them for …

Ex-Too Phat Malique: Disappoint us again!

Maybe it was not ASTRO fault, maybe it was not Anugerah Era teams fault. Maybe it was Malique who disappoint us so many times, showing no respect to all his fans who has been supporting him from day 1.

As you all know, at Anugerah Meletop Era 2017, there were a little bit of excitement when Dayang Nurfaezah performed a song with Malique live..Or is it? When the song started, all eyes were trying to find which one among those robes wearing human being is malique. We all heard Malique voices, it has been a long time since we hear him "Live".

We were all waiting, to be disappointed that Malique was not there. And I doubt he was anywhere near that place. Astro in the end make a press conference saying that it was all a gimmick. A stupid one!

What is the worst thing than lip sync when performing live? Doing like what Malique did, not even even at the site in the first place. It was dumb. All the fan were tricked into believing that we will for once in our lifetime will see Maliqu…

How Much To Study for Part 1 Mpath (Malaysia)

As I gaze upon the star, thinking about what will happen in the future, I saw text 'marqueeing' my vision. Then I looked down, to the thick book that I am reading right now.

How much do we need to study for Part 1 Master of Pathology? Basically, a lot. It's medical school final exam all over again. To registered yourself into Part 2 of the 4 years program, you need to basically master 4 subject in 1 year. Ironically, when part 2 started, you will be specialised into only 1 subject of your choice. Why do we need to learn all 4?

There were reason behind this, and it's debatable. A lot of argument, pro and cons and all sort of things but the system was already there, and to change it, it will need a lot of brain and paperwork. There were a few changes with Forensic Pathology since they are trying to depart from Master of Pathology program, have their own exams and their own assessment for their candidates to ensure that their candidate did not get stuck because they faile…

Labuan Indah: A Song That Should Not Be Forgotten.

As I was busy preparing for my final exam this May, I did not update this blog that much anymore. I have a lot of things to share but I have no time to share it as for now. Perhaps after the exams, I will start sharing more.

However, during my strenuous reading for the final exam, I stumble upon a song in my mind (yes, in my mind - you know when you study 18 hours a day then you started sing something in your mind). Maybe too much information feed into my brain cause it to trigger a remote past memory about a song. This song is called Labuan Indah.

It is supposed to be a official song for W.P Labuan. It used to be. I remember when I was in matriculation college before med school, those from Sabah will sing their official Sabah anthem, Sarawak will sing their official Sarawak anthem, then Labuan. Even we are only minority in that college as most of them were from the mainland of Borneo, yet the song became more famous than the other two songs.

Most of my friend always say..

Death to all those who steal!

When we were busy visiting interesting places in KL with my wife, someone decided to break into our house in Sabah and steal our stuff. I can't believe that it's finally happening to me. I've heard so many story regarding burglary cases in my apartment area and I believe that by those cases, the security and management, the police, and whoever involved in trying to solve this problem, already learn their lesson and try to fix the problem.

Nothing has been done. Cases of burglaries are on the rise. It seems that no one have a solution for it. That is unacceptable. But no matter how many grunts I wrote, people will always said that they are doing their best to reduce the crime rate, but the results were the opposites.

When my wife arrived at our home in Putatan, she was really shocked to see that our door were damaged and everything inside the house was thrashed. How could people be this evil. I never show off my wealth, I never disturb anyone, but yet, someone decided to do…

Who Watches Wrestling anymore?: Rumble To Wrestlemania 2017.

Who took a day leave just to stay at home and watch Wrestlemania? I did that once.

Who watches wrestling anymore? I do. It's an option and no one should be judge on whatever they want to watch. Someone love watching those malay drama on Tv3 and someone love to watch wrestling on WWE network. Both are not real, but both can be entertaining that's for sure. I do not watch those drama anyway but my wife love it.

Last year, I took a day off to watch Wrestlemania Live. This year, I do not plan to do that, but I am still going to watch it, maybe just the replay. The problem with Wrestling shows and also most of the sports show, or any Live show from the west, they always hold it on Sunday night which equals to monday morning in Malaysia. I wonder why they choose Sunday night and not Saturday night. Did American be able to go to work the next morning after the show? Just curious.

Anyway, regarding wrestling, I am a fan of wrestling since I was a little kid. Don't bluff to me, eve…

Happy 2017 : A Wish inside an ambulance that has been granted.

Happy new year to everyone. It will be another beginning of a chapter in everyone's life.

I really hope that 2017 would be a better year even though there is already a bad news for all of us..yes, petrol price hike for January. So I believe 2017 would be another tough year for all of us who happen to be living in Malaysia.

This new year eve and count down, as usual, for me, is just a simple TV watching and fireworks hearing activity in my house. At least last year I was doing the same thing but with my family sleeping in the room, this year pretty much I am alone. What to do, have to sacrifice for master study or perhaps I should blame it to Airasia and all other airliner who set the airline ticket price so beyond the normal value during this holiday season.

And finally, all my allowance are taken officially as I am not considered working, I am a student who is being paid 'fully' just to study. Thanks government. Now I feel like I am working in my home town as they have ta…
