The New Malaysia! : Labuan Now Is the Opposition.

It was finally over. Malaysian has spoken. The choice has been made.

I am so grateful to be one of the people that witness a historical event in Malaysia, the change of government after 61 years. Hopefully Malaysia will head to a new and better direction after this.

It was very difficult to talk about politics in recent years and months before the election. As a government servant, eventhough as a citizen, we are entitled for our own opinion but everytime we spoke, there will be fear that our position will be jeopardized based on our political preferences.

I can say that most of the government servant are not supporting the previous BN government because we as government servant are the one who can see how our government works in the first place. When the previous government said that our economy is good, we in the governent saw different thing. We saw how much budget was cut and how difficult it is to provide a high quality services without proper funding. When goverrnent issues that there were no problem, we can see the problem is still there.

Most of us cannot voice out our opinion because the fear of losing our job. I myself would not write something like this if the opposition did not win the election on 9th May 2018.

I would not dare to say that I am in favour of opposition even though people can see in my social media post that I am actually pro opposition but to say it loudly I will not.

But it was over. I voted for Parti Warisan Sabah and even though they did not win in my area, I still feel that my vote was counted as a whole. My vote still matters. Popular vote in my area which is Labuan also in favour of opposition and not the previous BN. BN win though.

I will not be mad to those who voted BN in Labuan. As I said in my social media platform, Labuan is unique as all the candidates are good person. None of them has record in corruption. It was a fair fight.

What’s not fair is when the vote was divided among 3 parties in opposition. That was unfortunate.

Anyway, before I went back to Labuan to vote, I was so confident that the opposition will win this election. But when I arrived in Labuan, everything look so different. People still considering to vote BN. It was weird for me because there were no aura of changes in Labuan. I understand later that people still think that BN government were impossible to be defeated. Plus many still think that Labuan has gained so much and were headed in the right direction.

It was a bit shocking that people there seems unaware of how other part of Federal territory were headed. Labuan is a federal territory for God sake!...and should be equals to Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur. Once Labuan appear to be heading to that direction but it stopped. Labuan once going to become a Pearl of South China Sea but now, nobody knows where labuan is.

But nobody should be blamed. Labuan still a peaceful island. People enjoy that. I do too.

Now, I was a bit skeptic that this island will flourish more as an opposition. But I do hope that federal government will not neglect this island again ( I was skeptical of this hope too). But everything can happen now. We have already change the government. Maybe this one will not be the same as before.


Nevertheless, it will be a hard 5 years for Labuan MP. He must work extra hard to fight for the right of Labuan. He must not rest no matter what. This election shows that our choice will really determined the direction of our land. Choice must be made correctly. Rest asssure, there will be another election in 5 years time. People of labuan will be make their choice again.

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.

Haha.

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.

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…

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…
