Accidentally Wipe Out Scheduled Posts

Yeah, I did put lots of effort trying write for my blog. There are many things I wanted to lashed and talks about it. My shitty fingers just hit delete the entire pending topics after realizing I am writing in the header column. Now I have to rewrite the whole topics again. As for now, I will write short recap of the things I did last few weeks (and today) after I came back from Kota Kinabalu work trip.

First, I joined the charity run this end of the month. Since Schlumberger is celebrating its 80th anniversary in Brunei and decided to hold a charity run in Seria which is closed to my home location rather driving a long way to capital. Why not try doing some challenge for 5KM Borneo Bulletin category.
I personally not an active charity runner because I do jogging and work out on weekdays. Weekend are my days off for relaxing and building Gunpla

Next, finding plastic storage drawers for Lego to sort out the bricks. I did found 9 drawers storage at Soon Lee Mumong last month. BTW, it cost BND12.90 each. But I decided to put on hold seeking out more selections at different location this month. Good news was the 30 drawers storage model was spotted at Soon Lee, Sea View location and cost BND19.90 each.
Now for the bad news, there are price treachery. So you need to be extra careful. Can you imagine the same 9 drawers storage found at Mumong branch cost BND15.90? They add another BND3.00 more. There is possibility you could purchase much cheaper price around BND16.90 if found at Mumong branch? I kinda hate this grocery store when they do this kind of tactic. Not the first time and I’m going to hold off until upcoming Brunei ends of the year sales.

Lastly, the damn old car acting up again. The engine temperature needle suddenly pointing to dangerous high red when I hit brake at the highway before turning to Mumong entrance. After few seconds when I drive to Mumong road, the temperature drop back to normal on the way home. The next morning I did a check on the water tank and found decrease. I refill and drive around, same thing happen and arrange to send over to the workshop.
The mechanic found no leak in the water tanks and the hoses. Goods news at least. However, they did another check and suspect radiator cap might be damage causing the water leaks out including incorrect engine temperature needle reading. I got it replaces today and going for test drive this Monday morning to see if the problem still persist.

You Called Me Uncle? WTF!

I don’t know if age caught up on me but I’m still in the 30’s. However, this starting to occur very often being called ‘uncle’ in the street. What pissed me off was these cunts are in their 30’s too. I don’t know if it was intentional jokes or just a whole misunderstanding since my mom sit beside me. Still, very rude.

Okay, I do admit don’t shave my mustache during weekend. Despite even if a person having mustache, should you simply jump into conclusion calling someone an uncle straightaway for the first time you met? Of course not, I personally see it very disrespectful way of greeting someone. Don’t get me wrong, I accept my cousin and friends children's calling me uncle. They are kids and I cool with that. But by a dude? WTF? Did he even looked himself into the mirror how he looked like? What kind of generation that guy is living in right now? My flaws may not be great in fashion type and good in choosing right clothing. I fully aware how I looked and dared to say myself belong to an average grade human being.

No matter, good rule of thumb. Don’t simply call someone aunties and uncles out of nowhere. Only do that unless you are certain and known that persons very well (like relatives or friends parents etc). Nowadays we usually call people by nick names, first names or sometimes formality way using Mr or Mr’s as greeting.

So did I drive into madness getting this new free HG original weapon parts this week? Nope, not going to. I already learned hard lesson last year and just doesn’t want to get dupe by HLJ again. Despite my heart is still so itching to press the purchase button. In the end, not happening.
There are plenty of Gunpla backlog stuck in my room and hardly finished half of it. It’s best I tried to complete majority of them before start buying again. But it just unimaginable that P-Bandai just screw us again. Who knows HG 1/144 Z-Plus C1 limited release recently just announce for no reason!
Again, I don’t understand why it has to be limited release. If they previously released both S Gundam, Xeku Eins and Z-Plus A1. Why just can’t Z-Plus C1 continue to be retail release? Gosh, this Bandai.

Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV - First 12 Minutes

Impressive CG animation as always from Square Enix. Although I'm not fan with English dub in Final Fantasy and usually prefer Japanese voice, but it indeed looks pretty well done. I can't wait for the release end of the month!

Slowly Call for the Passes to Attend a Citizenship Presentation Ceremony.

Not an official news, mind you. This is just a rumor head up for those who already pass their citizenship's examination previously. Chances the letter (or phone call) might be coming requesting the applicant to take up an oath to renounce all former nationalities and date attending citizenship presentation ceremony. It is unknown for now which year’s batches we are looking at, so don’t get too excited yet. You won’t know they might skip and choose those who had more promising background.
Don’t ask where I got the news from. It just happens reaching my ears when someone gets so cocky making ‘Baju Cara Melayu’ ready for the ceremony. =) As always, make sure none of your phone numbers and addresses change. Don’t forget, the Governments also need background checks on your activities again staying in Brunei. If you frequent travel, let your families knows to help you follow up.
I will wait and see if my step-sister receives official call as well since she took the test quite way back. For the examination news, there is NAHTHING to report.

Pokemon Go Craze!

Everyone says it’s a waste of time and stupid if you look at it. I was one of them but once I started playing after see the game landed in Apple app store, the crazy starts walking around my office and visit the public parks to catch the damn Pokemon monster as long it shows up in my GPS radar. For now I mostly go to Billionth Barrel Monument in Seria because currently one of the good places with three PokeStops there. Not to mention, my one stop jogging location after work.
Man, ‘Pokemon Go!’ really forces everyone out from home. You get to see tons of different people and even long time friends hardly see these days including some elderly and seniors joined the party. No one gives any damn laughs at anyone. Everyone just do their things, busy catching monsters walking around and battling at the gym on their phones.
Majority still skeptic about ‘Pokemon Go!’ game. Of course I too have issue especially players with no sense of safety while driving in highway and at towns. I encounter few sudden braking their car and then pull over just to catch the damn monsters. Worst, forget or without signaling light. Parents as well to worry their young children’s wander (some alone) in dangerous places and late nights catching monsters outside.
I do have to admit these games actually help players to be more active outside, sometimes making new friends and at the same time making you exercising just by walking, all for the sake of hatching the eggs (me, when jogging). But we just need to aware the surrounding and safety. Well, time for hunting adventure!

Bandai Continue Nightmare Release Limited Kits

I just don’t get it! How the hell Bandai continue to screw modelers like that releasing those limited kits that grantee to be long term popular? It just not cool playing such card on us especially the exchange rate already 76 YEN against our 1.00 dollar. To be honest, it doesn’t really looks so good for plenty of us if it continues to drop and in case you haven’t notice, the price of the normal Gunpla kit does indeed increase.

The toy market are slowing down definitely and I see several online shops having hard time clearing them off. Even they slash half the price of the toys, whether I should pick up or not because the limited kits are in the way.

So what are the new menus got for me to hunt? Let’s see...

 RAG-79-G1 Waterproof Gundam

Dream comes true for me. Bandai really up with their sleeves reusing the same mod knowing the retail release Gundam The Origin MSD Local Type not doing well in the market. This change, I am going to get it.

RGM-89S Prototype Stark Jegan

I already brought CCA-MSV version, why not this?

Ghost Jegan F & M
Thinking! Thinking!

GM Sniper II Lydo Wolf Unit

Nah, skip! I still like White Dingo version.

Gundam Thunderbolt Expansion Unit “Weapons & Armor Hanger”

Gundam Thunderbolt Anime and comic without doubt my favorite. So I am making excuses getting MG. Now waiting for the full preview of the kits and the price.

Where Is Da Missing Persons?

Quite long, yes. But question still need to ask. Where are the missing persons reported missing in Brunei? Are they found, suspect kidnapping or dead? Although I hardly buy newspaper, it doesn’t mean I never follow up reading local news every day online and peak at the newspapers if found at my company reception.

Brunei may continue to be peaceful country, I slowly find it very disturbing the police hardly follow up with the public regarding the missing persons. If they require public help, the police need to be responsible providing an update or better way setting up a website for us to check whether they are found or not.
