what is wrong with us,,MALAYSIANS?

SATURDAY night was the second time Malaysia participated in the Earth Hour programme.
Some high-rise buildings like KLCC, Menara Maxis and KL Tower switched off their lights.
We should commend such efforts. Kudos to the respective authorities.
Generally however, Kuala Lumpur was a letdown because the city was still bright.
Other cities like Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Paris, Moscow, Johannesburg and London were much darker than us.
What is wrong with us Malaysians?
How can we pledge to reduce carbon emission by up to 40% come 2020?
The ordinary citizen never seems to bother about such events.
While i'm turned off my bedroom's light, the others just ignored about that and said "ko ni semangat sgt la sahel"..and some of them playing around with their arrogant comments when i posted about EARTH HOUR..come on man..please use ur common sense...okeh?

that's why..malaysians are popular with 'The Malaysian solution', like in many other instances, does not take common logic into account but rather uses the sledgehammer approach.

We might think that nothing much can be achieved by switching off lights for an hour.
It’s not the time that counts, but the TOGETHERNESS and the WILL to do something to make this Earth a better place.
What happened on Saturday might be due to the lack of promotion by the organiser, the WWF.
We must have a will to preserve and conserve the environment for our future generations. We must discard our selfish attitude now.
If you think switching off lights and staying home is boring and stupid, why not hang out with family or friends during the hour?

That way you can kill two birds with one stone.
You can save the planet and enhance your bond with each other.
The people in power, corporate figures and the NGOs should set an example by doing the same thing and asking everyone to switch off their lights.
I am very supportive of Earth Hour and feel we should make Malaysia as darkest country during Earth Hour.

Remember, everything is possible as long as we think of Mother Earth.

p/s:i knew they juz want to joking around with me..but..i'm serious about this...hmm...sorry for any comment.

a doctor too many.

Malaysia, a country with about 26 million inhabitants, boasts of 24 medical schools now.
Just a few years ago, the number was less than 10. In fact,10 years back, I could count the medical schools with my fingers. Now even with my toes and my fingers, I can no longer. Some of the names are so new that I, did not even know they existed until I did some research for this article.
The list is below:
Public universities:
* International Islamic University Malaysia, Kulliyyah of Medicine
* University of Malaya, Faculty of Medicine
* Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Faculty of Medicine
* Universiti Sains Malaysia, School of Medical Sciences
* Universiti Putra Malaysia, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
* Universiti Malaysia Sabah, School of Medicine
* Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
* Universiti Teknologi Mara, Faculty of Medicine
* Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
* Universiti Darul Iman, Faculty of Medicine
Private Universities and Colleges
* UCSI University, Faculty of Medical Sciences — School of Medicine
* Monash University Malaysia, School of Medicine and Health Sciences
* International Medical University, Faculty of Medicine
* AIMST University, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
* Allianze College Of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine
* Management and Science University, Faculty of Medicine
* Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine
* Royal College of Medicine Perak, School of Medicine
* Melaka Manipal Medical College, School of Medicine
* Penang Medical College, School of Medicine
* MAHSA University College, Faculty of Medicine
* Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NuMED)
* Taylor’s University College, School of Medicine
* Utar
These are the medical schools in Malaysia. These schools, when fully functional, will produce about 4,000 doctors a year. There will be thousands more Malaysian doctors being produced overseas, since many Malaysians are studying medicine in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Russia, Taiwan and even Ukraine.
The sudden mushrooming of medical schools is apparently due to shortages of doctors in the public sectors. This is because most doctors in government service resign after their compulsory services and opt for the supposedly greener pasture in the private sector.
In most other countries, the logical thing to do to counter this brain drain of doctors to the private sector is to find out why doctors are resigning from government service, and then try to address the woes of the doctors, and hopefully, keep them in service. I call this common logic.
The Malaysian solution, like in many other instances, does not take common logic into account but rather uses the sledgehammer approach. After all, we do have Malaysian logic, which is different from common logic practised in most other countries. For example, if we cannot have spacecraft of our own, we can still produce astronauts by sending Malaysians into space, hitchhiking on other countries’ spacecraft.
In most other countries, the common logic will be to try to improve the working conditions in public sector so that doctors will stay back. But Malaysian logic is sledgehammer logic, and is very different.
If the doctors do not want to stay in government service, then Malaysia shall flood the market with doctors, so goes the Malaysian logic. Never mind that setting up of medical schools and training doctors are expensive businesses. We have petroleum and huge amount of development funds.
By building more buildings and buying expensive medical equipment to equip these medical schools, billions will have to be spent and, of course, in the Malaysian context, everyone will be happy, down from the planners, the contractors, the parents and all others involved, since the perception is that projects in Malaysia inevitably will have some leakages and wastages, and many people are very happy with these leakages and wastages.
Never mind that we may have the hardware but we may not have enough qualified people to man these medical schools.
The Malaysian logic seems to be like this: If enough doctors are produced, the market will be saturated with doctors, and thus, doctors will have nowhere to go but to stay in government service.
Well, the people may be clapping hands and rejoicing that, with more doctors than are needed, medical costs will come down.
Unfortunately, things do not function like this in medical education. Experience in some countries tells us that some doctors in private practice, when faced with too few patients, will charge higher and do more investigations, some of which may not be needed. So instead of medical cost going down, it will go up.
In any advanced nation, the setting up of a medical school requires a lot of planning and is not done on an ad hoc basis. Planning must include where to source for experienced and qualified teachers; where to build new or source for existing teaching hospitals, which are big enough for the placement of these medical students to do training.
Planning such as facilities, equipment, classrooms, curriculum. In the west, it takes many years of training for a medical school to be set up; whereas in Malaysia, we see more than 10 in the last five years.
In Malaysia, due to the sudden “exponential” increase in medical schools, we have medical schools pinching staff from each other, even the mediocre ones. With that number of qualified teachers only, it is unavoidable that many teachers may not have the experience and qualification to be medical lecturers.
The early birds (medical schools) are more fortunate. Their students are placed in bigger hospitals like the General Hospitals of Kuala Lumpur or Penang. Now, some of the medical schools just opened have to send their students to smaller district hospitals to do their training. The smaller hospitals are often manned by more junior doctors who are not qualified to be medical teachers, and these hospitals have only very basic facilities and equipment.
This is just the beginning of the problems. For a doctor, graduating from a medical school is the beginning of a life long journey, and the basic medical degree is more like a license to start to really learn how to manage and treat patients.
The most important year after a doctor graduates is the houseman-ship. If a doctor does not have proper houseman training, then he would face a lot of problems later on. He or she may know all the medical knowledge in the world (just for argument’s sake, since knowledge of medicine is so vast that no one can know everything), but without the proper houseman training, he or she will not get the hand-on experience so crucial and important to doctors.
A doctor without proper houseman training is not unlike a person who has only ever raced in arcade games, suddenly being asked to race in a real life race. He would not have the hands on experience to do well. A doctor without proper houseman training would be like a person given a license to kill, and a disaster waiting to happen.
Now, with 4,000 doctors being produced in a year, where do we find so many houseman positions for these young doctors?
Even now, with some of the medical schools just starting and not yet producing doctors, and the number of doctors being produced is much less than the 4,000, the wards in some of the bigger hospitals are filled with so many housemen that, in some wards, there are not enough patients for these housemen to learn management skills.
About a year back, I was told, in HKL some of the units have more than 20 housemen. Recently one doctor told me that in some units, it may have even more than that. I was aghast. Since with that many housemen in a single unit, and so few senior officers to guide them and so few patients for them to learn from, how are they going to learn the skill of doctoring?
When there is not enough training for these housemen, what do you think our policy planners do? In the typical Malaysian style, they increase the length of houseman-ship from a year to 2, hoping that the longer time will help to give better exposure to these doctors.
Compared to Australia, New Zealand, and United Kingdom, houseman-ship is still one year only. By increasing the length of the houseman-ship, it is a tacit admission that our one-year houseman training is not as good as the above mentioned countries.
A poorly trained houseman will become a mediocre medical officer, and since now most of the specialists are trained internally, it will be a matter of time before future specialists may not be as well trained as presently.
Many parents do not know about the actual situation and still encourage their children to take up medicine. They are not told of the actual situation. The day will come when there are simply so many doctors that none are adequately trained. There will come a day when a doctor graduating from a medical school cannot even be placed in a houseman position.
And that day is actually very near.

salam and good morning everyone...what a nice day..hoho

yeah..i want to post about sleep..haha,,it's been awhile i didnt get enough sleep because of insomnia, work n etc...and now,i'm juz waking up from a long sleep...

so,,if u want to know a little bit about your roommates',housemates' or whatever mates' true personality,,look at the way they sleep..hmm..that's will reveal everything about them..hehe

> Foetus position

More women than men adopt this position, and are most likely to appear tough on the outside but are sensitive deep in their hearts.

> Log

Lying on the side with both arms down tells you that the sleeper is an extrovert who trusts people easily, but could be naive in nature.

> Yearner

Sleepers with both arms out in front are believed to have an open personality but could be indecisive.

> Soldier

Lying with both arms or hands pinned to the sides are people who are quiet and reserved, but tend to be loyal to their friends and partners.

> Freefall

Lying on the front with hands around the pillow, head turned to one side, reveals that the sleeper is loud, brash and does not take to criticism.

> Starfish

Lying on the back with both hands around the pillow are usually people with good listening skills and they attract many friends who seek genuine advice.

p/,,,yearner and freefall...yeah!!

1 sem= 7 weeks

1 week=6 hours

1 day=2 hours

1 hours=60 minutes

1 min=60 sec

60sec x 60 min x 6 hours x 7 weeks= SHORT SEM.. =.="

old school..YEAH!!

Well, this brings back memories. Childhood memories that is.

The Tora and Ding Dang.

I remembered the young me used to keep some money to buy Tora or the Ding Dang. Not because of the chocolate balls inside but because of the different toys one gets and also "TORA DTG LAGI" tv commercial.YEAH!!!

Next, some more pictures.

Choco in Ding Dang

I would think that some might not even hear about Tora and Ding Dang, perhaps maybe the rich would never heard bout it. Something like I am too "standard" to be buying stuff like that kind of thing.

Their childhood probably would be full time tuition, learning linguistic lessons, and definitely learn piano or juz watching ASTRO (no "TORA DTG LG" tv commercial). Or even, their play time would be playing golf or tennis and their hobby would be like flying the helicopter or plane or something. =p

Anyway, like what I said, it brings back childhood memories. I am considered a kampung boy. Not exactly authentic kampung boy but a kampung boy nonetheless coming from a small town.

So, what my childhood was like?

It involves climbing trees, play hide and seek, play "Polis Entry or Buaya Duduk", making own weapon (the lastik), sparing with my friends and etc. Well, you get the idea.

Hmmmm, suddenly I feel old. Those days, Tv shows such as ,Lion King, Dragon Ball, Digimon , Doraemon, Mickey Mouse,, Ultraman, and the Wat's Up Doc bunny are a must watch.

That is it already. More I think back the older I felt I have become. hmm,,,i should be more matured...

there is a saying...

When i was a primary school student, i always heard about something that is normal in our society..there is a saying about anger...yeah,,it sound like this; "Jangan cepat marah,nanti cepat TUA" or it means is "Don't always be angry, you will get older" and we as a student always said sarcastically to our teachers especially female teachers when they angry with our screw up actions like we didnt do our homework, littering around etc....

it just a saying,but older people always say it because of their experience, not based on scientific facts or bla bla bla...

ok then,there are some scientific facts about being angry..these physical reactions typically occur in your body when you become angry.

* cortisol production increases in the adrenal glands,which raises blood pressure,raises blood sugar levels,may cause infertility in women, and suppresses the immune system
* fat storage increases
* brain cells are killed
* free radicals (unstable molecules that are believed to cause tissue damage at the cellular level) are overproduced.
* increase aging,causes wrinkles, and increases the risk of cancer
* cause disorders of digestive system,circulatory system, nervous system, glandular system, and immune system.

I have best friend since childhood, Mamat and we always joking around and do something together. After several years, I met him back at my new hometown. First time we met, he always complained about life, his family that always move away likes a nomad family and his unstable study, spoke negatively and blamed his parents. I was shocked because his happy-go-luck face had changed with wrinkles on his face and look older than his age.

This is because he always upset with his condition now and just want to angry and blame other people. Yeah, that's true about a saying "jangan cepat marah,nanti cepat tua".

so, to bloggers out there,please don't use any vulgar words to express your anger to some imperfect person in posting your opinions or comments about some issues.Yeah, i know that our government,our school, our college, our parents, or our friends had did something bad to us like miscarriage justice or etc, BUT we have other correct ways to express our own opinion likes give them advice. NOBODY's perfect,rite?

for example, there are some students at my college expressed their anger by created some groups like "WE HATE PAK GUARD AND FELLOWS UIA" in Facebook because our pak guards and fellows started to make spot check and gave summons for unreasonable mistakes,But,it changed nothing. Then, some brilliant students started to make petition via online to give that petition to our dean and it's working to stop all these craps.

so,,U get it?

p/s: that's why our Prophet (to Muslim readers), Rasulullah (peace be upon him) taught us,“Iman is patience and forgiveness.” [related by At-Tirmidhi]
