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 taken away that special allowance which was given to those who work far from their hometown. Like I was born in KL sarcastically.

They may even deduct my salary to compensate what they have already given to me since June.

Nevertheless, I wish that I could survive and I have an advice to all who plan to further study, please save your money like how you saved before you get married. That would be very helpful.

At least last year and this year I was in my home looking at the clock and count down new year in my head. That was enough for me as a celebration. Year before that, I still remember from 2012 until 2014, every new year eve I will be inside ambulance escorting critically ill patient from my district hospital to tertiary hospital located about 2 and a half hours away. Return trip will roughly took about 5-6 hours plus 1-2 hours passing over session and break session in that hospital. So, pretty much I will left my hospital and come back a in a different year. I've been through that.

During those risky trip where our ambulance driver look really tired and sleepy, a patient that could die in any moment, overworked and underpaid Assistant Medical Officer who kept bagging the patient with his eye half closed, nurse who pretty much actually asleep but still manage to check vitals sign every 30 minutes, I always pray and wish that somehow in the future I would be spending a new year's eve in my home just doing nothing. God listen to me and I am living in that future that I prayed for.

Somehow, after two years celebrating new year like this (doing nothing), It make me remember more about my district hospital. My team member there, the nurses, AMO, driver, PPK and other hospital staff. They could be still doing what I did in those years of practicing there. They will still be an unsung hero tonight. A salute to them and all the hospital staff who happen to be working tonight. If they were making the same wish that I made during my days, just be careful what you wish for. Sometimes, celebrating new year inside an ambulance could be more fun than doing nothing alone.

I don't mind, cause this is what I wish for. Now, I wish that I could celebrate new year with my family in the next year's new year's eve....

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.

Master in Pathology (Malaysia): A Guide To Apply.

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…
