Onshore Trip (to Work LOL)

It was my first time going onshore to work on a ship. I have to say not an easy ride for me as I have to take a Severn class lifeboat (likely what it was called) to board the ship for another half an hour. Imagine adding another trip from Kuala Belait to Muara required at least more than one hour. That’s why I took my camera with me. Shhh…..I almost got a sea sick after 10 minute inside there after the weather starting to turn bad and shaken the lifeboat side by side fiercely. I was like, damn, am I going to throw out the food from my stomach? I was totally lucky taking a half an hour ride only because I was told that the ship has sail nearer in order to reduce the time for me to reach there. All else, I might take at more than two hour to reach them. Not to mention I have to check every crew PC in every office too and possibly I might going to stay there for one night. Argg...Well, it ain’t going to happen because my own bed was much better and my PC is in front of me, and I need it. Maybe I would consider staying there if I owned a laptop. However, there was one thing I would never really want to miss out. It’s their cafeteria and the foods were damn good. I wish I would have “Tabao” the foods and bring it home. ^^;;;

That’s not all I have to say, there are Gym too in the ship. But I do not have any chance to visit it, unless I work there. However, one funny thing about the crews there asking me about what kind of car am I driving now. Honestly, so I said I am currently driving an old Toyota corolla wagon 1991. Do you know what reaction they show to me? They don’t believe it, which is totally think I am bullshit them. They even said IT employee normally have good salary and drive good cars. I don’t really belong to the IT field I have to say, I’m just a normal PC technician with enough salary to survive. No argument about these, I have a very nice chats to most of the crews and captains.

The most worrying is when I might go too missed out the lifeboat coming to transport me back to the port. It was already at night and it’s raining. It was totally dark in all surrounding and I only managed to see few lights coming from the distance, and freaking quiet. HA! Well, I did taking few pictures around there. But some of them are spoiled because it’s too dark out there and my setting wasn’t quite correct. Anyway, the lifeboat finally came after I get inside the ship to prepare my stuffs. It was still raining and the wave hitting quite strong. Luckily the food inside my stomach already digest almost 80%, if not I might going to throw everything out on the lifeboat on those half an hour seasick back to the port. ^^;;; I guess I have to say on and all a very good trip to onshore for one day. I really missed the food there. HA!!!

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
