CHMS Lion Dance 2008

Every Chinese New Year, everyone will go to see the Lion Dance in Chung Hua Middle School (CHMS) at any place in Brunei. Of course for me I will go to my nearest town which is my old school in Kuala Belait. I never had been to Seria before which is until now even it takes me 20 minutes to reach there. Unless my friends asked me to go with them, but it just never happen. I also went to Tutong and the Capital to perform few years ago when I was still at school. I have to say it was the most enjoyable moment and we owed the stage when my sensei started out the dragon dance. Even it was impressed by His Majesty including other visitors from many countries on the Sultan Birthday as far I remember. I really missed those excitement days. Time flow like a wind blew.

 

Anyway, I wonder how my town Chinese school is going to entertain us this year. Last year was disappointed I have to say and the performance are same as previous year. However, I was happy I am able to meet up with my lion dance sensei at the open house and asked him to share his view on this year. He told me that there will be better and more changes in the performance including more programs added to the list. I guess missing the event is not a good idea, and at the same time I need to check out the stadium that was renovated last year.

Although the place has filled with plenty of air conditioning in the stadium, I was surprised to see the place becoming to cramp and difficulty for non-VIP to look for the empty seats. If you look at the picture, it was still around 18.20PM. The performance starts at 20.00PM and you have to be there early if you are non-VIP. I still took my time walking around and take some pictures on the lion while I can before more people coming in to take over my seats.

 

Well, I still prefer the old version. The new one look too cute for ladies. CHMS_liondance_2008 (6) (1024x768)CHMS_liondance_2008 (8) (1024x768)

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.
