Captain Manvikram Singh Gill is the first medical officer to be honoured with the Pharmacy Professional of The Year 2019 award

SwipeRx, the largest social network of pharmacists in Southeast Asia, presented its top professional pharmacist award to Manvikram on Monday, 17 February.

The 28-year-old, who is currently a pharmacist at Tuanku Mizan Armed Forces Hospital in Wangsa Maju, beat thousands of other pharmacists to win the award

“I am proud of the award which helped put the Armed Forces and the country on a pedestal. It will motivate me and my fellow colleagues to aim higher in our service,” Manvikram said, according to New Straits Times.

Manvikram credits his success to Brigadier-General Datuk Dr A Halim Basari

Dr Halim is Malaysia’s first military pharmacist and also serves as pharmacy director at the Health Services Division of the Defence Ministry.

“I was Dr Halim’s understudy during my early years after graduating as second-lieutenant (from the Armed Forces Health Institute at the Terendak Camp in Melaka),” said Manvikram.

“It was Dr Halim who intensively groomed me with an advanced pharmacy leadership course,” he added, according to New Straits Times

He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in pharmacy at the International Medical University in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur

“I aspire to further promote the capabilities of the pharmacy profession in Malaysia.”

“This in the long term will enhance the roles and responsibilities of pharmacists for the betterment of the community,” he said.

Military pharmacists provide healthcare services during peace or wartime

Registered pharmacist Dr Aisyah Saad wrote in her blog that Military Pharmacy is a profession that ensures military readiness and maintains fighting strength of the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) with medical support and pharmaceutical care.

No matter what height of success we reach, we should never forget those who helped us achieve that. Some of those people would usually be our parents, who sacrificed in every single possible way in order to provide us with the best life even if they have to work hard and skip a few meals here and there. This young man proved that he never forgot his parents especially when he achieved his ambition.

Mohamad Risky Saputra is a 19-year-old trainee at the police training center (SPN) at Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. A picture of him bowing down to his father in gratitude went viral recently on social media.

Risky’s mother, Sumarni, told KOMPAS.com that her youngest son has always wanted to be a policeman but due to their family’s condition, she told him that they couldn’t afford it. However, Risky simply told that he wanted their blessings.

“I only want your blessings, with your blessings, Insya Allah everything will be easier.”

Sumarni added that her whole family depends on her husband’s sole income of selling gado-gado and sate around their house. At first, even she couldn’t believe that her son passed the selections test and couldn’t contain her joy and excitement. His proud parents added that they will be going to his police appointment ceremony in March in their best clothes!

It’s inspiring to see how Risky persevered against the odds to achieve his dreams all with his parents’ blessings. No matter what happens, just remember that your parents will always be your biggest cheerleader supporting your every step.

Taiping penuh daya tarikan

February 13, 2020 | Inspiring, Lifestyle | No Comments

KALI terakhir penulis ke Taiping pada 2017, bandar bersejarah yang sentiasa menjadi idaman untuk bercuti. Kali ini pula atas jemputan Tourism Malaysia.

Keseronokan lebih terasa kerana saya dan rakan-rakan menaiki Perkhidmatan Tren Elektrik (ETS) dari Stesen KL Sentral ke Taiping, Perak.

Turun dari ETS, kami menaiki van yang sudah menunggu untuk menikmati minum petang di medan selera Casual Market. Pelbagai menu makanan di sini seperti char kuetiau, mi kombat, bo bo cha cha, popia, mi rebus tulang, roti canai, pasembur dan roti jala. Makanannya memang sedap dan murah.

Selepas minum petang, kami ke hotel penginapan. Malamnya, kami ke Zoo Taiping untuk program Night Safari. Saya sudah tiga kali ke sini tapi masih teruja untuk melihat haiwan pemangsa yang bergerak di sebelah malam.

Mendengar ngauman singa jantan membuatkan hati berderau, seolah-olah raja rimba itu di depan kami. Seronok juga melihat kucing hutan yang terhendap-hendap seperti memburu mangsa, begitu juga peluang memberi makan badak air. Seronok sangat.

Kami menggunakan tram untuk bergerak dalam zoo pada sebelah malam tapi sesekali saya turun untuk berjalan dan ternyata lebih seronok kerana dapat melihat haiwan lebih dekat. Dalam cahaya bulan yang berbalam-balam, saya boleh melihat ada haiwan yang hanya berkumpul dalam kelompok mereka seperti rusa dan seladang.

Dalam kunjungan kali ini turut diadakan pelancaran Pakej Lawatan Pendidikan Zoo Taiping dan Night Safari disempurnakan Pengarah Bahagian Pembangunan Pakej Tourism Malaysia, Syed Yahya Syed Othman selain kehadiran Penolong Pengarah Kanan bahagian Pembangunan Pakej, Tourism Malaysia, Muhamad Aminuddin Abdul Majid.

Selesai pelancaran, kami dibawa ke ATV Adventure Part Larut untuk menghilangkan ‘ketegangan’ akibat jadual padat seharian di Zoo Taiping. Pelbagai perasaan ketika pertama kali berpeluang memandu ATV melalui jalan ‘offroad,’ antara takut, teruja dan seronok. Aktiviti sebelah malam, lebih santai apabila menyaksikan pemandangan kelip-kelip di kampung Dew .

Destinasi lain sempat kami lewati adalah Kuala Sepetang dengan mengunjungi Pusat Pembelajaran Hutan Paya Bakau di Matang dan kilang membuat arang kayu. Kuala Sepetang antara pembekal utama arang kayu di negara ini dan dieksport ke luar negara. Arang kayu di sini, antara yang terbaik di dunia.

Kami meneruskan perjalanan ke Tasik Bukit Merah Resort untuk melihat spesies Orang Utan. Menaiki bot menyusuri Tasik Bukit Merah memang mengasyikkan dan dari jauh sudah kelihatan kelibat orang utan yang dibiarkan hidup bebas di pulau berkenaan.

Melengkapkan siri pengembaraan ini kami berkunjung ke destinasi bersejarah seperti kilang kopi tertua, Kilang Kopi Antong yang diasaskan Tiah Ee Mooi pada 1933, Muzium Telegraf Taiping dan Taiping Heritage Trail.

Mengenai Taiping Heritage Trail ialah lukisan mural tiga dimensi terbesar di negara ini dan pernah menerima anugerah The Malaysia Book of Records menerusi ukuran 14.60 meter tinggi dan 27.44 meter lebar.

Lukisan mural ini juga memberi penghargaan kepada juruterbang solo wanita pertama merentasi Lautan Atlantik, Amelia Earhart yang dikatakan singgah di Taiping untuk mengisi minyak pada 20 Jun 1937.

A 50-year-old mentally disabled man from Vietnam has to look after his ailing mother who had always taken care of him all his life.

According to China Press, the woman, now in her 90s, had five children. Two of them passed away while another two got married and started families of their own.

Her youngest son has been mentally disabled ever since he was a child and has always been dependent on her. He grew up under the care of his mother.

However, now that that she is getting older and has many health problems, it has become very difficult for her to not only take care of her son, but to take care of herself.

Without sufficient money for medical bills, she just lies in bed thinking that “sleeping is just fine”.

Seeing his mother’s condition, the woman’s mentally disabled son decided to take up the responsibility of caring for his mother by himself. He knows that she has been the one taking care of him all these years and says that it is now his duty to honour her.

However, due to his mental disability, there’s no way for him to find work. So, he goes to the market every day to find work to make a living.

And because he’s worried about leaving his mother alone at home and afraid that something bad would happen to her, he would wake up before the sun rises while his mother is sleeping and return home by dawn.

He earns money by picking up rubbish and buys food for his mother. But because he knows that she is too sick to have solid foods, he would buy milk for her instead.

Additionally, he would change her diapers for her and clean her body.

News about this man and his dedication to his mother spread online where it touched the netizens in Vietnam.

We certainly are touched by this story too! Hopefully after news about this has spread, someone would be willing to help this poor family out.

Let’s be honest here. Almost all of us have taken an airplane blanket before. What, they very comfy lehhh!

Taking to Twitter, netizen @Hazrey shared an image of a passenger returning a blanket he took nine years ago, folded neatly and wrapped in plastic with a note on it.

The image which was taken by Leading Crew for Malaysia Airlines, Kamarulzaman Abd Karim (a.k.a. Kay) happened during a flight from KLIA to the King Abdul Aziz Airport in Jeddah.

Sharing his story with Harian Metro, Kay said: “We would routinely check the cabin after all passengers have left the plane, just to check whether or not personal belongings are left behind by the passengers.”

“Upon check-up, we found a parcel wrapped in plastic, which turned out to be a MAS blanket with a note on it.”

What was the note?

The note writes, “Sorry, I didn’t know at the time. I took this blanket when I boarded your flight in 2011 if I’m not mistaken.”

“I’m sorry for the inconvenience and it is my favorite blanket.”

Well, isn’t that nice?

According to Kay, it is common practice that the blankets are returned when the plane lands, but there are some who take the blankets home as souvenirs.

“It would’ve never occurred to me that there are those out there who would return it.”

The original tweet which has garnered 1,478 retweets, witnessed netizens commending the passenger for doing the right thing, and recall their own MAS blanket story.

One netizen writes, “When I was on my flight to Beijing, there was this baby who was freezing cold. It was 1 am and probably the clothes that the baby had on was not thick enough.”

“One stewardess came by and provided the blanket. She said to just keep the blanket and not return it.”

Malaysian hospitality at its best right?

Another shared a story while boarding MAS’s A380 whereby the staff told the netizen that he can take the blanket as a souvenir, but he did not. However, they got free peanuts too!

Truly the best representation of Malaysian hospitality, we applaud both MAS and the passenger alike for showing the best attitude that we Malaysians have to offer.

What were you doing when you were 12-years-old? For most of us, we probably recall fond days of playing on the PS2, or maybe going out cycling with friends to the nearest taman or playground, then buying snacks from the pak cik who parks his motorbike nearby. Whatever the memory may be, we probably weren’t doing a lot of adult-things at 12-years-old, kan. But you will be surprised to know that one 12-year-old boy has managed to defy his peers with his sheer talents!

In a Facebook post that has recently gone viral, it is revealed that 12-year-old Airiel Haziq is already capable of drafting up incredible architectural drawings and layout plans, despite his young age and not having any formal training whatsoever! His father, Mohd Hardy, had only started noticing his son’s impressive talent when he was about 10 or 11-years-old.

“I would always find a lot of sketches of very modern building or home designs on his desk, so me and my wife decided to support his passion and bought him a proper drawing board, a T-square set and all.

We even started buying him Form 4 and Form 5 reference books for perspective drawing and engineering when we noticed his talents really started advancing.” he said.

So how talented is he today? Well, apparently Airiel is so good at what he does, he even knows how to use professional 3D architecture design software on his computer, just like a proper architect!


Knowing that they had intended to renovate their kitchen and bathroom, Airiel’s father decided to let him take charge of the renovations. Again, remember that he’s only 12-year-old! So what was the end result? Incredible, of course. See for yourself!

After his talents became viral, many netizens heaped him with praise for his incredible work, as well as complimenting his parents for allowing him to pursue his passions and nurturing it as he went along. After all, family support is what truly makes a child’s dreams come true!

We definitely have to say we’re impressed with Airiel’s skill, and hope to see that his family continues to support his interests and allow him to truly flourish with them! After all, talent like this is hard to come by and definitely shouldn’t go to waste!

Sneakers are expensive, that much we can all agree on. Most ‘decent’ sneakers from popular brands can cost upwards of RM300 to a mind-blowing RM1,500, which are supposed to be enhanced with unicorn tears and phoenix feathers to make you feel like you’re walking on the heaven’s clouds. Or at least, that’s what we think. We dunno, we don’t have sneakers that expensive.

Well for some underprivileged teenagers, the idea of buying expensive sneakers wouldn’t even cross their minds. After all, it’s practicality over all else and if it works, it works, as this Facebook post goes to show.

While some of her peers may be sporting (did you see what we did there) the greatest and latest from the biggest sportswear brands to get themselves ready for a sprint to the finish line, Rhea Bullos of Balasan, Philippines had a completely different approach when it came to her running shoes.

As a representative for Salvacian Elementary school participating in the Iloilo Sports Council Meet, you can expect the competition she had to face was stiff. However, here’s a twist.

Instead of sneakers, she wore only surgical bandages that were wrapped around her feet and ankles, resembling the shape of a shoe. And then, just for the sake of branding, the Nike ‘swoosh’ was coloured on the top of the bandages.

And with these ‘running shoes’, she won 3 gold medals.

A 400m dash, a 800m dash, and even a 1,500m dash were all conquered effortlessly by Rhea with her makeshift running shoes with ease, leaving netizens impressed and her competitors in the dust! In an interview, she says she aspires to represent the Philippines in the South East Asian (SEA) Games someday.

Remember that RM10 note that went viral over the weekend with a heartbreaking message that was written on it? Malaysian netizens all over went on a full-scale search to return it to its owner, with the post being shared left, right and centre.

As it turns out, the owner of the RM10 note has already been found after the weekend-long search all over the wide expanse of the internet! Yes, its owner at long last was found through the power of social media.

The owner of the RM10 note is revealed to be Anne Malar Yesudass, and the story behind the RM10 note may just prove to be as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming. Anne shares with WORLD OF BUZZ that this RM10 note was given to her by her late father on 21st May 2010. She was only a 17-year-old high school student at the time.

As most parents do, her father dropped her off at school and gave her RM10 as her allowance for the day. She says she still remembers the exact time when her father left her at her school: 7.10am. Tragically, that would be the last time she saw him.

 “Unfortunately, that was the last day and last time I met him in my life. He met with an accident on that day and returned to our Lord in that accident.

“I kept this cash with me in my purse since that day.”

However, her wallet, which contained the invaluable RM10 note, was stolen from her when she attended a camp in Melaka on 1st September 2019. Since that very day, Anne had been on the lookout for the note and its return.

“I was terribly sad that this valuable thing of my life was stolen together. I always remember about this the past one year. There was always an ache in my heart whenever I think of it.”

At long last, after almost a year, Anne was finally reunited with her RM10 note with the help of Hyza Ezany and Malaysian netizens everywhere.

“I thank so so so much sis Hyza Ezany. The word thank you alone is not enough, actually.”

“Thanks for all those kind-hearted people who shared it as well, and all the thoughtful comments.”

She also reminds would-be thieves that sometimes, it’s not the monetary value that victims of theft mourn the most, but the loss of things that carry truly sentimental value and importance, and stresses that thieves should always think twice before committing their crimes.
