Update on my father 2

Finally we had manage to see the doctor just now and it was frustrating. First of all when we had first see him last wednesday after waiting for 5 hours , he did not even border to check physically at my father and just rely on the 2 month old MRI scan done at Selangor Specialist Hospital .Based on that , he told us that he will x-ray again today and decide on a minor operation to remove the kidney stone .But now after waiting for two month , only today another x-ray was done and the doctor cannot detect the kidney stone and he advise us to go back and do another scan in two weeks time.
My question is
  • why do we need to wait two month just for and x-ray?
  • Why doesn't an x-ray is not done during the first consultation?Need to wait for two month before the first x-ray
  • I was being told by the doctor in Selangor Specialist Center that the kidney stone was small and cannot be detected using normal x-ray and can only be detected using MRI.Why the heck is this specialist is still using normal x-ray?
  • during the two month waiting period no medication was given to my father from hospital selayang the reason is doctor will only give medicine after consultation(which we had to wait for two month).They had advice to go back to hospital sungai buloh for medicine. We we go to hospital sg buloh , the doctor in hospital sg buloh refuse to give medicine as the case had been refered to selayang hospital? Ding , dong , ding , dong .Finally we consult our own family doctor and buy the medicine ourselves
  • the doctor from selangor specialist and sungai buloh had given us a letter from their own diagnosis on my father condition to be shown at selayang hospital , is it too much to ask to give a medicine while waiting for two month before the seeing the specialist.Who know my father condition would deteriorate, while waiting





Update on my father and other stuff

Finally after waiting for two month my father will finally undergo a minor surgery today to remove the KIDNEY STONE and to check the condition of his swollen left kidney. The waiting time for government hospital is just too long and furthermore we suppose to see the specialist today at 245pm and up until now the specialist is nowhere in sight and we are left in the blank at the ward about the status of my father .Nobody told us anything , only that we are told that the doctor will see us today at 245pm at the ward for the surgery.
Our government staff really need to improve the way they service their customer. The frontliner need to be customer focus and result oriented.I really hope Dato Najib could do something to change the mindset of government servant.
It had been a long time since i update my blog , i had been very busy with work,training , travelling and selection of fitting for my new house. For the past two week i had went to Sungkai Hotspring Resort , Sungkai Wildlife Reservation Center , Bukit fraser , Kuala Kubu Dam and etc.Will update on my blog soon.Among all i really enjoy bukit fraser.I had went to bukit fraser a few years back and i really didn't enjoy it. But yesterday i had revisit bukit fraser again and this time i really enjoy it.Pressure at the office was mounting and bukit fraser provide an ideal escapades.I don't want to reveal too much as it will ruin my blog entry on bukit fraser.
I had just completed my leadership n management training last wednesday and i could say that it was worth it.i had attended a lot of management training before conducted by local and mat salleh and it sucks. But the recent one is very good as they are a lot of panel , among them is the current MD of malaysia airlines and people from khazanah nasional.I was really interested when they talk about DARE TO FAIL and the GAME OF THE IMPOSSIBLE.
All this while in my the management training that i had attended before , all emphasized on setting realistic target but in this course i was told that we must set impossible target so that we could radically change the way we are doing things.In planning for the impossible we must conquer the fear of failing.I wish i could share more on what i learn with you guys but i'm just lazy to type.

Love you so much Xplorer Jr , you presence had truly add colours to my life.

Nasi Lemak Ayam Kampung,Ipoh

Coconut milk rice or "Nasi lemak" plays an important role to the life of every malaysian.Apart from its high cholesterol content which plays a significant role in contributing to the total number of death in heart attack related disease in Malaysia , nasi lemak is truely a 1MALAYSIA food.Suffice to say that nasi lemak create a very tight bond between MALAYSIAN worldwide.If you had experience living abroad or travelling overseas for a long period of time i bet my life that there will come a period where you will drool thinking about nasi lemak and longing to come back to Malaysia.By the way , INA , i guess that you must be drooling by now after seeing the pic ,he he.Maybe someone should suggest to Dato Seri Najib that instead of using the 1MALAYSIA slogan , we should instead used NASI LEMAK as a campaign slogan.Not eating nasi lemak is so not malaysian and to the hard core it's even tantamount to not being human, he he.

During my recent visit to Ipoh , my cousin had brought me to this NASI LEMAK AYAM KAMPUNG restaurant in Ipoh but i doubt they used "ayam kampung". The texture and taste of the chicken is more towards "ayam bandar" or "ayam inject". I live in KL and i definitely know how "ayam bandar" taste like , he he.But overall the taste of the sambal is not so bad and the fact they steamed their rice add more flavour towards it.The main dish in this restaurant is nasi lemak but the are other stuff like steamed fish , fried rice , sup belut and etc.I had tried sup belut and i do recommend it to all.

1MALAYSIA for all!!!

NASI LEMAK for all!!!!

Hari Raya story

Di Ipoh bersama sepupu
Casuarina Hotel ipoh
Vistana Hotel penang

my niece

hari raya dinner
my sister and wife preparing hari raya dinner
hari raya breakfast at my inlaw house

Bila dah lama cuti rasa macam berkarat pulak otak.Dah sembilan hari aku tak berkomunikasi dalam bahasa inggeris dah rasa lidah makin keras , bila hari pertama bekerja kena masuk meeting nak present paper tetiba plak rasa macam dah tak boleh berkomunikasi dalam bahasa inggeris.Mungkin sebab dah terkena penangan ketupat sebab tu dah keras lidah nak berbahasa inggeris.

Actually my parent and my inlaws had moved to KL permanently , therefore technically speaking i don't have a kampung . For the first time in my life I celebrate hari raya in KL. It was horrible man!! , therefore on the second day of hari raya i had started my journey to my relative house in TAPAH , BRUAS , BOTA , PENANG , KEDAH and IPOH.For the first time also i had spend most of my hari raya time in hotel in PENANG(VISTANA HOTEL,by the way vistana hotel is just superb at RM230 per night and i highly recommend this hotel) and IPOH(casuarina hotel).Normally i spend most of my hari raya time watching TV at home but this time i feel it was more fulfilling as i had shared the spirit of Hari Raya with my relative,the hospitality that was shown by my relative during hari raya was just superb although i only met some of them once or twice in a year .All of them insist that i spend the night at their house rather than at the hotel but i had to politely decline as i really need the comfort and the serenity of a good hotel room to de-stress myself . Visiting them almost made me feel that i still have a kampung and that i will always welcome at their house.I will definitely do this again next year.

Thunderbirds Aerobatic show

I was in Terminal 3 Subang Airport today when i saw THUNDERBIRDs performing an aerobatic show.Lucky i always carry my camera whenever i go.I was told that the airshow will start officially tomorrow at 9 am at SUBANG TUDM AIRBASE.

Below are some facts on THUNDERBIRDs
The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force(USAF), based at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. The squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked USAF jet aircraft.
Officers serve a two-year assignment with the squadron, while enlisted personnel serve three to four. Replacements must be trained for about half of the team each year, providing a constant mix of experience. The squadron performs no more than 88 air demonstrations each year and has never canceled a demonstration due to maintenance difficulty.
In addition to their air demonstration responsibilities, the Thunderbirds are part of the USAF combat force and if required, can be rapidly integrated into an operational fighter unit. Since 15 February 1974 the Thunderbirds have been a component of the 57th Wing at Nellis AFB.
