Alhamdulillah, I just finished my SPA interview few minutes ago (around 9:30 am). The interview took about 15-20 minutes. 

Basically, there were 2 panels; 1 from KKM and another one from SPA. Both of them were ladies.

Note: The whole interview was in Bahasa Melayu. 

So first thing first, the panels asked me to introduce myself. 
They asked me whether, being a medical doctor is my passion since childhood? Any family members in medical profession too? 

Then, the KKM interviewer asked me a question regarding :
  1. What is the role of medical doctor? 
  2. How to approach to an asystole patient if you're the HO incharged during on-call. 

  1. Danger. Ensure no danger around patient, yourself and surroundings.
  2. Response: Ask patient, "Hello, sir. Are you okay?"
  3. Ask the staff nurse to call/inform MO and specialist on-call.
  4. Ask the staff nurse to bring the emergency trolley.
  5. While waiting for MO/specialist, do CPR & bagging.
  6. Make sure MO/Specialist come to the scene.

As for SPA panel, it was more laid-back. She asked me how I go to the interview (I asnwered that I drove all by myself here). Then she started to ask me about:

  1. In your opinion, why do you think many of HOs quit during their HO training? 
  2. What do you think about the criminal rate (kadar jenayah) here in Malaysia
  3. Who's our Menteri Kesihatan, Ketua Setiausaha & Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan.

That's all for today. Good luck and all the best to all my comrades for your interview!
