Just the other day,  my patient wife said thank you for caring her husband.  During a meeting, matron praise me for being humble man.I am happy with those positive comments and it’s give me more motivation in running daily clinical tasks which may pretty stressful and demanding.

Last week, while awaiting to sent a patient to Alor Setar, received a call from an angry consultant threatening and give me warning on delay of sending the patient.
While dealing in this situation, I choose not to give my reason of not sending early patient. The fact is I am delay sending the patient for not following his order of “send immediately” and I perceived it as send as early when permitted.
Obviously i am not getting a permit from consultant.

Anyway how, it’s the second time and although one will surely disheartened by this episode, I kind of happy with the end of event, my patient got what he needed most, a urgent PCI and an improvement of the early life threatening event (a complete heart block).

One may reactive overwhelming to this situation but I kind of took what I have learned from some facts in life which alway come in a yin and yang situations.

Let’s see, if one get praise for his right action, then one will be likely to get blame for one mistake.

Similarly,   Gain vs Loss, Fame vs Ill-Fame,  Praise vs Blame, Happy vs Sad.

All of this conditions ultimate affect our mood, our mind and our wellbeing.

One must strive to deal with this situation. Many people are only seeing happiness and fail to comprehend the sadness situation in our life.
for example, dealing with illness: when one lost of the good physical condition, he/she needs to face the reality of life and it’s all sad and it’s a lost. If we fail to deal with it, one may dwell into depression and may ultimately give up the will to live.

Therefore, it’s very for us to remind ourself that things may be a positive or negative and we should learn to handle it with the right kind of mindset and attitude.

Be positive and be strong.



Last month, I went to an eatery in the wee hrs trying to watch a Euro football match. The eatery was full of fans and what strike me most of fellows (all men in eatery except the waitress) are smoking.

I went to Penang last week and on the way back to kangar and stop at the Gurun R&R, as I enter the large public restroom, a group of youngsters, dress smartly with shinning shoes, they are PKLM trainees age around 18, having a smoking session.

And now, just sent a young patient 30 plus to Alor Setar for rescue PCI after develop complete heart from MI. His only risk factor is smoking and I guess he has been a smoker since his teenage day which show him having a long history despite a young age.

The “TAK NAK” campaign by MOH had fail miserably. I don’t see any reduction in the number of smokers and more a d more young men develop complications from smoking.

Maybe the government should try to emphasis what smoker can do to a man sexual ability like what the Chinese trying to do that smoking cause impotent !
