HaPpY nEw YeAr 2011


It's has been a really, really, really, really, really long time since I last update my blogs. Well it's that time of year again. Questions like what's your new resolution(s)? Hmm...is there always new ones? Maybe then maybe not! Call me a non visionary person or person with no goals in life but mind you, I do! But it doesn't have to be renewed every year like your car insurance etc. Well you decide...should you renew your resolution or continue with the old one. However you want it to be, it's you to decide. There is no right or wrong just be happy with yourself. Enough said. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011!!!

DiD yOu KnOw?

Lebihan doktor pelatih di Semenanjung dihantar ke Malaysia Timur

PUTRAJAYA: Kementerian Kesihatan akan mempertimbang menghantar doktor pelatih yang berlebihan di Semenanjung Malaysia ke Malaysia Timur memandangkan kekurangan di sana amat teruk, kata Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan, Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican, hari ini.

“Kami sudah mencadangkan kepada beberapa orang doktor pakar dan pengarah negeri, jika bilangan doktor pelatih memang ramai di sini, kami sedia menghantar mereka ke Sabah dan Sarawak.

“Jika anda ke sana, anda akan mendapat latihan lebih baik dan persekitarannya tentu lebih mencabar. Saya yakin kebanyakan mereka cukup teruja untuk bekerja di Sabah dan Sarawak,” katanya
Beliau menyatakan demikian selepas mengadakan dialog dengan Ketua Perkhidmatan Klinikal, Ketua Jabatan Klinikal dan Doktor-doktor pakar dari pelbagai disiplin di sini.

Menurut satu siaran akhbar, ketika ini terdapat kira-kira 5,000 doktor pelatih ditugaskan di 38 hospital utama, yang dijadikan hospital latihan.

Mereka ditugaskan bergilir-gilir setiap empat bulan dalam enam disiplin utama iaitu perubatan dalaman, pediatrik, pembedahan, obstetrik/ginekologi, ortopedik, dan perubatan kecemasan atau pembiusan. - Bernama

Hmmm....tak tau la pulak ada doktor berlebihan di Semenanjung Malaysia...all this while this 'frog-under-the-coconut-shell' is made to believe that we're short of manpower in this area. Did you know?? Kalau betullah, why only now baru nak consider (tu pun baru nak consider lagi) nak hantar ke Sabah & Sarawak. Ada jugak feedbacks yang saya terbaca di kalangan bloggers yang menyatakan keberatan hati doktor-doktor ini untuk bertugas di Sabah & Sarawak atas alasan (di antaranya) jauh dari famili. Now I would like to ask, what or why did one wants to be a doctor? Secondly, are the patients in the East Malaysia any different ( of course I meant the illnesses etc)? Dah la kekurang AMAT TERUK di Sabah dan Sarawak ni...there shouldn't be any second thoughts / consideration. Rakyat didahulukan...yes doctors are rakyat too but in the medical capacity, they are oblige to. Tu belum masuk bab guru-guru lagi. For those doctors (no offence) but look back at my first question. Please, please enlighten me why did one wants to be a doctor in the first place?

What Say You?


MPs and groups counter Aussie protest (Update)
By ZULKIFLI ABDUL RAHMAN and ANDREW SAGAYAM


KUALA LUMPUR: Several groups including 17 Members of Parliament handed over memorandums to the Australian High Commissioner protesting the act of more than 50 Australian MPs who had called for the sodomy case against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be dropped.

Other groups who gathered outside the Australian High Commission here on Wednesday included members of the Barisan Nasional Youth wing, Perkasa and the Malaysian Makkal Sakti Party.

Barisan Backbenchers Club deputy chairman Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin said that the MPs had presented a memorandum to the Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia Penny Williams protesting what it described as the “intervention” by the Australian government into the case.

“We are an independent nation and they have no right to interfere in our judiciary system,” he told reporters outside the Australian High Commission.

He said that the sodomy case against Anwar had not been brought up by the Government but by an individual, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, and the Australian government could not instruct any individual to withdraw his or her claims.

Barisan Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said Williams, in accepting the wing’s memorandum, had maintained that the Australian government’s policy was that it did not get involved in the affairs of other countries.
Besides MPs, other groups who gathered outside the Australian High Commission included members from the Barisan Nasional Youth wing, Perkasa and Makkal Sakti Party

In its memorandum, Barisan Youth said: “We are shocked at the impudence of the letter (by the Australian MPs) in disregarding the rule of law and trampling upon the sacred principle of sovereignty that governs relations between nation states, by urging the Malaysian Government to drop the charges against Anwar.”

“We would like to remind the MPs concerned that Article 2 of the United Nations Charter spells out the principle of non-intervention in issues which are within the domestic jurisdiction of a state, in accordance with the principle of sovereign equality between all member states.

“We would also like to point out that Australia, as a signatory to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in South-East Asia, has committed itself to the respecting the sovereignty of other signatory states and for the right of each state to lead its national existence free from external interference.

“There can be no dispute that the trial of a Malaysian citizen – in a Malaysian court under Malaysian law – falls completely within the sphere of Malaysia’s domestic jurisdiction,” the memorandum said (click here for the full statement).

The Australian MPs had lodged a formal protest urging Malaysia to drop the sodomy charge in the interest of building “confidence in the impartial rule of law in Malaysia.”

It had been reported that almost 60 Australian MPs from both sides of the political divide had signed a letter in support of Anwar.

The chairman of the Australian Parliament’s foreign affairs sub-committee, Michael Danby, had delivered the letter to the Malaysian High Commission in Canberra on Friday.

Dang Wangi police chief ACP Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman said the situation at the Australian High Commission in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng was under control.

He said those who wanted to hand over memorandums of protest were allowed inside the High Commission.

ACP Zulkarnain confirmed that three memorandums were received by the High Commission authorities.

So what say you? Should have or should not the Australian MPs do what they did? I've always believe that we should be in control of our own internal problems. I still believe in the democracy practices here in Malaysia. That includes the judiciary system that we have. Guilty or Not, let the court decide and not otherwise. Does the Australian MPs (those 50 of them) represents the voices of Australians down under? Are they practicing what they preach? We still read or hear in the news of negativity about the Australian Government of today and yet we do not interfere in the internal problems. They should do so. Enough said!!

Rain, Rain Where Are You?!


Normally, most people would like the rain to go away and come again some other day! (like the song la), but it has not been raining for the past one week or so here where I am residing.....kinda hot and humid. Just wish it would just rain for one day. Missed the rainy days (not too much of course). Blame it on El Nino, but that happens every year right? These are the small things we take for granted...bila hujan, nak kan panas pulak...bila panas nak hujan...guess it's human nature...but REALLY! Bila la nak hujan. There were clouds but somehow it was carried away to some other places. Found out places of friends are raining and kinda envy of the situation (pasal hujan pun nak jeles ek!). Whatever, hope it'll rain soon...again today looks like there are thick clouds forming but you never know for sure...RAIN RAIN WHERE ARE YOU?

THE PRETTY LADY

Once upon a time a big monk and a little monk were traveling together. They came to the bank of a river and found the bridge was damaged. They had to wade across the river. There was a pretty lady who was stuck at the damaged bridge and couldn't cross the river. The big monk offered to carry her across the river on his back. The lady accepted. The little monk was shocked by the move of the big monk. 'How can big brother carry a lady when we are supposed to avoid all intimacy with females?' thought the little monk. But he kept quiet... The big monk carried the lady across the river and the small monk followed unhappily. When they crossed the river, the big monk let the lady down and they parted ways with her. All along the way for several miles, the little monk was very unhappy with the act of the big monk. He was making up all kinds of accusations about big monk in his head. This got him madder and madder. But he still kept quiet. And the big monk had no inclination to explain his situation. Finally, at a rest point many hours later, the little monk could not stand it any further, he burst out angrily at the big monk. 'How can you claim yourself a devout monk, when you seize the first opportunity to touch a female, especially when she is very pretty? All your teachings to me make you a big hypocrite The big monk looked surprised and said, 'I had put down the pretty lady at the river bank many hours ago, how come you are still carrying her along?'

[This very old Chinese Zen story reflects the thinking of many people today. We encounter many unpleasant things in our life, they irritate us and they make us angry. Sometimes, they cause us a lot of hurt, sometimes they cause us to be bitter or jealous .. But like the little monk, we are not willing to let them go away.We keep on carrying the baggage of the 'pretty lady' with us. We let them keep on coming back to hurt us, make us angry, make us bitter and cause us a lot of agony. Why? Simply because we are not willing to put down or let go of the baggage of the 'pretty lady'. We should let go of the pretty lady immediately after crossing the river. This will immediately remove all our agonies. There is no need to be further hurt by the unpleasant event after it is over.

The Turtles



A turtle family decided to go on a picnic. The turtles, being naturally slow about things, took seven years to prepare for their outing. Finally the turtle family left home looking for a suitable place. During the second year of their journey they found a place ideal for them at last!

For about six months they cleaned the area, unpacked the picnic basket, and completed the arrangements. Then they discovered they had forgotten the salt. A picnic without salt would be a disaster, they all agreed. After a lengthy discussion, the youngest turtle was chosen to retrieve the salt from home. Although he was the fastest of the slow moving turtles, the little turtle whined, cried, and wobbled in his shell. He agreed to go on one condition: that no one would eat until he returned. The family consented and the little turtle left.

Three years passed and the little turtle had not returned. Five years...six years... then on the seventh year of his absence, the oldest turtle could no longer contain his hunger. He announced that he was going to eat and begun to unwrap a sandwich. At that point the little turtle suddenly popped out from behind a tree shouting, 'See! I knew you wouldn't wait. Now I am not going to go get the salt.'

[Some of us waste our time waiting for people to live up to our expectations. We are so concerned about what others are doing that we do not do anything ourselves.]

Here We Go Again!!


This will be my first entry for the year 2010...sishhh....susahla...sometimes there is time for me to do this and then again most of the time there isn't. Not only the time factor but also....*modal* penulis....writer's block? Maybe, maybe not....Anyhow updates.....as the title suggest...here we go again...new year ( a little bit late...hehehe) new resolutions (never understand the tradition of having new resolution every new year). Confusions between goals and 'cita-cita'. For me, here we go again...reset to 'zero', new targets, new expectations, new goals...etc...(kerja punya pasal la ni). Year in Year out the cycle repeats itself...As I see it...most of us are trying to survive in this world, cari makan! Each year (for me at least), it's getting tougher. Family grows, prices grows but money still don't grow (hehehe). I take it one day at a time. Career wise, of course I want to be the best this year...well at least better than last year. Advancement is what everyone I know wants...although there are those yang overzealous...tak ape, tapi jangan sampai kacau periuk nasi orang lain!! Berdosa tau!! What goes around, comes around...INGAT TU!!

Lately, I have been following some blogs on politics (couldn't resist) and there are some good and reliable ones but then again there are the 'pembohong besar' ones...you be the judge of it...sometimes it does make me sick just to read them. I'm a lover not a fighter sounds cliche but that's who I am. Why can't we just get along with life in peace and harmony. Sometimes I do feel that we are all pawns and some individuals are reaping the 'hasil'. Simple me just like to get along making ends meet and complete the cycle of life. I summed it up as the result of GREED that creates the unstable situations in the world today!! People have more time other than to make ends meet these century, unlike our forefathers where survival is the key.

Enough said...hope to sign in again soon. Do leave comments it you've read my entry/ies. Ciao!!
