Had a short talk with one of my uni's buddy on MSN. It was a meaningful talk i guess, we were actually talking about our future, although it might sounds abit too far away. Haha. Well, this topic popped up when we were talking about which medical school i should go.

I'm actually having a dilemma here in choosing my school, its between AIMST in Kedah or Melaka Manipal Medical College (MMMC) in Melaka which offers a twinning programme to Kartanaka in India.


Part of the conversation between me and Ken. FYI Ken's going into Dentistry soon in Sept.

Shaun: still cant accept dat u will be entering dentistry la, all dis while was hearing that u're into medicine.

Ken: i'm surprised too but i have already set up my mind.

Shaun: act wad de main reason u took up dentistry instead?

Ken: i seriously cant take up wif medic life. i mean, i like to be doctor, but to be a doctor, its not wad i wan. but i couldnt say far and more. because u guys are into tis field. i respect each views.
but to be fair, if i looked at my own view. i wil choose dentistry. its nt easy for me to made dis decisions. seriously, frens/future/family/myself. everythins hv to take into account.but both are noble profession.

Ken: my sis is so much busy working from 7am till 11pm at night. sumtimes even more.she cant really come back. my bro is a doc. he ain't cmin back here. well at least, dentistry, i wil work for office hours from 9am to 5pm. and weekends i'll be free. and only passive calls. a lot reasons la. =)

Shaun: yeah,its better to think wise cause its our future. lol.. act i dun really like those on calls for doctors as well. but theres one thing dat will keep me going
its de satisfaction, to me job satisfaction is de most imp thing of all. I would like to see my patients heal and to give them a hope in their life..

Ken: yeap, u got ur view. and its true.

Shaun: i dun really mind to scarifice my time to make a difference in someone's life. not sure in de future tho when i have a family, hope my dear wife will be understanding. haha. XD


Wth. Talking about wives already. Haha.





*Ability to provide service and support to others
*Ability to save lives
*Continuously Learning
*Appreciation for medical science
*Teach students and patients about medicine
*Decent Salary

As a physician you will enjoy not only monetary rewards, but humanistic rewards which are priceless. We can all imagine how painful it must be to tell a family that their loved one has just died, but can you imagine how amazing it must feel to repair the defective heart of a tiny baby? Or to remove a malignant tumor from the brain of a young mother? Or to help an injured man to walk again, thereby giving him the gift of dignity, the ability to support his family, and the freedom to play catch with his son.


*Spend several years training and preparing at schools and hospitals (e.g. medical school,internship, residency)
*Long process to acquire a license
*Time consuming
*A great deal of Responsibility
*Managed care means more difficulty earning a high salary





*doesn't risk patient's life
*good salary
*office working hours (with your own dental clinic)
*less stressful
*less depressing


*facing the same thing throughout your life (tooth!)
*costly to set up own dental equipment
*long working hours (government servant)
*lengthy pathway of education



So, Medical doctor? or dentist?

Wth la.

Both will be carrying the same title "Dr." towards the end of studies what right?

So isn't it the same?

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Don't bother watching this movie.

KNN. Wasted my 11 bucks for this crap.


In the end, what we have is an expensive-looking movie that completely fails to engage and entertain, unless you happen to be an eight-year-old, that is.

Die-hard FF4 fans especially, you will be really disappointed with the way the Silver Surfer comes across in the movie.


TWO THUMBS DOWN for this movie.


Well, just came back from Digi's premiere on Transformers at Cathay Cineplex, Cineleisure. Got the tickets from one of my colleagues.

So lucky man. Haha.
Some pics on the event.

Digi's Yellowman at work.

The crowds at Cathay, Cineleisure.

Optimus Prime!

This whole movie hall is owned by Digi.


Theres only one advice for you.

It will leave that little kid in you stunned, drooling, and clamouring for more.

Gonna watch it for the second time tommorow.

All Hail Autobots!!!

Love the climactic battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron!

TWO THUMBS UP, Michael Bay.

And special thanks to Digi.

PS. Guess what's the ending song of the movie?

I've just received an admission letter from AIMST, the university i applied for a few days ago.

Admission letter from AIMST.


Well, it is stated there that i have been accepted into the university for the next MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery) intake!



Won't be suprised if some of you will think like..

Ermmm... BUTTTTT it's like.

Chong Sian becoming a doctor?? Dak mou (can anot in cantonese)!?

Errrr... I can't actually answer you right now. But, We'll see about it 5 years later. X]

Probably this won't happen. I guess.


From what i understand in the world of medicine, i would say that it's not difficult of becoming a medical practitioner but near to impossible to become a GOOD doctor.

Why do i say that?

There you go..


A: attentive (to patient's needs), analytical (of self), authoritative, accommodating, adviser, approachable, assuring
B: balanced, believer, bold (yet soft), brave
C: caring, concerned, competent, compassionate, confident, creative, communicative, calm, comforter, conscientious, compliant, cooperative, cultivated
D: detective (a good doctor is like a good detective), a good discussion partner, decisive, delicate (don't play "God")
E: ethical, empathy, effective, efficient, enduring, energetic, enthusiastic
F: friendly, faithful to his or her patients, flexible
G: a "good person," gracious
H: a "human being," honest, humorous, humanistic, humble, hopeful
I: intellectual, investigative, impartial, informative
J: wise in judgment, jovial, just
K: knowledgeable, kind
L: learner, good listener, loyal
M: mature, modest
N: noble, nurturing
O: open minded, open hearted, optimistic, objective, observant
P: professional, passionate, patient, positive, persuasive, philosopher
Q: qualified, questions self (thoughts, beliefs, decisions, and actions)
R: realistic, respectful (of autonomy), responsible, reliever (of pain and anxiety), reassuring
S: sensitive, selfless, scholarly, skilful, speaker, sympathetic
T: trustworthy, a great thinker (especially lateral thinking), teacher, thorough, thoughtful
U: understanding, unequivocal, up to date (with literature)
V: vigilant, veracious
W: warm, wise, watchful, willingness to listen, learn, and experiment
Y: yearning, yielding
Z: zestful.

Well, told ya.


Basically in Malaysia, the it's not easy to become a specialist (compared to UK).

Upon graduation of the MBBS degree which takes about 5 years, it is compulsory for all medical graduates to undergo 1 year of housemanship. Being a housemen is like becoming a trainee doctor in the hospitals where you help doctors and nurses to carry on their medical procedures.

After the housemanship, they will be promoted to the post of Medical Officer, which runs the duty as a qualified doctor. As taken from the Medical Law of Malaysia, it is compulsory for all newly promoted Medical Officers to serve the government for 3 years.

Right after the 3 years service, those who are interested in continuing their studies in Medicine will have to take on postgraduate studies which takes another 3 to 4 years to complete. At the same time, they serve under the supervision of Consultant Specialist in the hospitals for 2 to 3 years.

Sub specialisation in any fields will take another 2 to 3 years.

So, lets do some simple calculation here..

19 + 5 + 1 + 3 + 4 + 4 = 36


Man.. After completing everything, i will already be like.. 36 years old!!

Sigh.. bear with it nia.

What to do, its a noble proffesion what.


This will probably be how i look like after my Master Degree.

After my phD perhaps? =.=


As for those who are also considering a career in medicine, i will say that you will be having a long journey ahead but there will be great satisfaction as you will make a difference in someone's life.


Dr. Ng Signing off. X]

Hmm.. Since i have nothing to do.. I've come across something funny but realistic..
Okay, here's how it goes..
In Malaysia, the average family income is RM3,000 per month (where father works, mother as a housewife).
Well, there are many families whose monthly income does not reach RM3,000, but to make
things simple, let's take RM3,000 as the figure.
Okla, right?
Okay, let's start rolling with a family which has a Papa, a Mama (doesn't include papa's mistress), 1 daughter and 1 son. Just nice - a moderate family.
The calculation STARTS..
Electricity and water bill - RM100
No air-cond, No home theatre, No water heater.. ok?
Phone bill ( Telekom ) - RM100
No high speed broadband - Streamyx.
Meals for a happy family - RM775
3 meals on RM25 per day, BUT RM25 for 4 person??
Papa's teatime at work or during working hrs - RM155
RM5 per day, RM5.. Can eat what?
Car repayment - RM400
A Proton Saga aeroback, 7 yrs repayment
Petrol (living in city, traffic jam) - RM300
go to work, bring son to school,only can afford one car running
Insurance - RM650
kids, Mama and Papa
House repayment - RM750
Low cost housing repayment for 30 yrs, retired still have to work to pay!
Tuition - RM80
Cheap ass tuition. Classes at the roadside one.
Older childrens pocket money at school - RM20
RM1 per day, chiak sai ah?
School fees - RM30
Enough to pay for toilet's maintainance only.
School books and etc - RM100
Photostated textbooks ONLY.
Younger children milk powder - RM50
Cannot have the DHA, BHA, PHA, KNN one.. Too expensive.
Miscellaneous - RM100
Toiletpaper, shampoo, toothbrush, etc..



I have to stop here, so..

Now, let's use a calculator to total up..
SHIT! RM3,610 already..
EPF haven deduct..
Income tax leh??
already RM3,610 ..
How to survive lah people??
Our Deputy Prime Minister asked us to change lifestyle somemore? How to change? Don't eat? Don't work? Don't send children to school and study?
Besides that, I believe in Malaysian population, there are millions of Malaysians which still don't earn RM3,00 a month!
What is this? MALAYSIA BOLEH?
because we're still alive and kicking here!! =.=

It has been quite some time since i promised to blog on my holidays at Redang Island.

Well, Here's how it goes.

The itinerary of my journey to the island far away from the world of reality.



Started our journey to the city of Kuala Terengganu from Cherating beach, Kuantan (where we spent our night) at around 5am, my eyes were still closing during the way there. Duh~ Its darn early man..

Along the coast to Terengganu, i was actually quite impressed by the cleanliness of the roads. All this while i've thought Terengganu as a spooky place with papers flying around. But well, i was wrong. It was indeed a nice place to stay if you're someone that will opt for a peaceful and serene environment.

After a 3 hrs drive, we finally touched down on the city of Kuala Terengganu. Its a well developed city and as i said ealier, an extremely clean city. Perhaps one of the cleanest CITY i've ever seen. We then head for Shahbandar Jetty.

Along the beach at Cherating Beach, Kuantan.

The Palace of Sultan at Kuala Terengganu. 8.30am.

The peaceful town of KT. 8.31am.

The Shahbandar Jetty at KT. 8.35am.

A scenic view of the jetty's bridge. 9.04am.

Cuti-cuti MALAYSIA~ 9.45am.

My dad and me looking blur on the ferry. 10.22am.


Our ferry landed on the big blue bay of Redang sharp at 11.20am. Guess whats the first words that comes out from my mouth when i first saw the beautiful clear sea of Redang?



A view from the ferry. Doesn't look as impressive how i describe huh? 11.25am.

How about this? Took it on the water shuttle bus. 11.30am.

Look how clear is the water. You can actually spot some corals if you look carefully into it. 11.39am.

The serene view from the hotel lobby. Redang Beach Resort. 12.00pm


While we were stepping onto the long stretch of sandy shoreline, a few unsherettes assist us to the hotel lobby for check-in. Keys were then handed to us at 12.30pm.

Super Quad 5 in 1 room. Haha. 12.45pm.

After unloading our stuffs. We went to the New Canteen (lousiest name i've ever heard for a hotel in-house restaurant) for lunch. 1.30pm.


An unique signboard in front of the resort. 2.15pm.


At 3pm. We proceed to our first snorkelling trip to Tanjung Tengah snorkelling site.

Too bad i haven't gotten myself a waterproof camera. Missed so many great chances of taking photos underwater. Sigh. Damm wasted.


Basically what you need when you snorkel is a life jacket, a snorkel mask and fins, if you know how to control your own buoyancy in the water.

So this is actually how snorkelling looks like, you don't have to be a swimmer to snorkel. The life jacket will eventually make you float and what you need to do is just to put on your mask, look under the sea and kick with your leg in an up and down manner.

Well in Tanjung Tengah, you will be able to see baby black tip sharks, schooling needlefish, a few turtles (if you're lucky), squids, an orange-striped triggerfish (aggressive when protecting its nest and attacks on divers and snorkellers are not uncommon. We were asked to keep our distance away), resident barracuda and the other common reef fishes.

An ugly Triggerfish. BEWARE.

I can bet with you that once you snorkel, you will want another one VERY badly after that.


After the snorkelling trip, it was already like 5.30pm. We followed the boat transfer back from Tanjung Tengah to Pasir Panjang aka. Long Beach.

Well, after that as usual, beachwalk along the long white sandy seashore and some swimming.

Dinner at 7.30pm.


So there goes a day.

One tiring but awesome day at the beautiful Redang archipelago.

Will be posting more photos on Day Two && Three soon.

So do stay with me! =]

I'm too tired to blog today so i guess i'll just share a few interesting facts i've compiled from the net with you guys.



In Lebanon , men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

PS. Hmm.. That does MAKE sense isn't it?


In Bahrain , a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

PS. Erm.. Do they look different reversed?


The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

PS. Then i guess going blind will be a better punishment.


There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time.
Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.

PS. Let's just think for a minute, is there ANY job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?


In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may bekilled in any manner desired.

PS. AH! That's justice!


Topless sales women are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical fish stores.

PS. But of course!


In Cali , Colombia , a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

PS. Makes one shudder at the thought.


In Santa Cruz , Bolivia , it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the sametime.

PS. I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?


In Maryland , it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises.

PS. Is this a great country or what? Well, not as great as Guam! X)


Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

PS. Those who are underdoing slimming programmes, i think this will help ABIT.


Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

PS. Is that why Flipper was always smiling?


The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.

PS. Did the government pay for this research??


Butterflies taste with their feet.

PS. Ah, geez.


An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

PS. No comments.


Starfish don't have brains.

PS. Oh, really? =.=


And, the best for last?

Turtles can breathe through their butts.


Cha Dou?

Well, guess that's for all now.
Part 2 will be coming out soon.

So, for the moment.

me, KO*.

I'm back!

Well, I've been back from Terengganu since Friday but was still kind of lazy to upload my pics to my laptop.

So for the meantime i'll just blog abit about the days after i'm back to PJ..
Well, basically it's just all about sleeping and resting.

It was really exhausting after coming back from a week-long vacation at a beach.
Do stay with me for the pictures at the isle of Redang.

My dad went thru the newspaper and found out theres this International Magic Festival going on in Subang Parade.. So it was his suggestion that we'll have our dinner there and at the same time, to have a look at the magic performance by magicians all around the world..

It has been a year since i last been to Subang Parade, all this while i've thought that it was a shopping complex in PJ that's near to edge of closing down.


Right after i stepped into the complex, i was like..

" Wahlaoeh.. Since when Subang Parade became like this already? "

Yeah, it has changed quite alot in terms of their layouts and the shoplots in it..

Had dinner @ Kenny Roger's
Front view of Subang Parade.

Back view of Subang Parade.

The crowds at the International Magic Festival.


It has only been a year and so many things have changed here..

Even the MPPJ Majlis Pembandaran Petaling Jaya has became MBPJ Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya..

From a small district in the 1980s, PJ has now became a developed city with a whopping 600,000 inhabitants..

Who wouldn't be proud staying in a place like this?

Man.. I just loved my hometown! =)
