Pandemic H1N1

Sudden blow of infectious diseases occur in Malaysia...from the worldwide Virus H1N1..to meningitis and now leptospirosis...Why this occur? Maybe due to the hot weather lately...but the most important is about hygiene...But if you are talking about pig as the vector this pandemic have show to us why pig are not allowed for muslim...Hygiene ..our religion taught us on cleanliness.Prevention from spreading of disease our culture has taught us to respect others in situation such as sneezing or coughing in public....

Moral of the story that i want to share..the beauty of our religion has warned us on the need of hygiene and cleanliness ..and avoiding food/touching certain animals such as pig.But we are the one still deaf and blind.Hopefully with all that happen we start to realize how proud we are to be Muslim .

Doctor's Life

If you ask me ..being a doctor is a correct choice of occupation my answer will be yes once upon a time but not now..for the past 15 years having DR title in front of my name there is so much differences.During previous years patient is more polite ,very minimal questions and respect you for your advice and knowledge but now with "customer always right" being a doctor is so miserable...you have to entertain patient with no appointment once they threatened you..complain will be publish in news papers..the thrill and patience,the joy and happiness being a doctor to give a helping hand fade away. Now you just want to be a doctor for money..at the end of the day you are paid accordingly ..Partly it is a frustration for someone like me..
Does people out there know what is a life of a doctors..seeing patient in the clinic, ward round ,on call and your family...additional burden is like me traveling from shah alam to HKL and having a special son...\Despite being clinician we are managing the department ....
But i do hope people can understand ..we as doctors are human ,especially during this recession the high income start searching for government hospital and there goes never ending problems and complains.. .
