My Car is Fix!

Waking up early on Sunday is a waste. If it wasn’t my car brake got problem. I should be sleeping comfortably like an angel. Argg…after having my breakfast and met up with my friends. I bring my car to Mastiah Tyre and Accessories car workshop to check my car in industrial area in Kuala Belait. It turns out my brake water pump (I think) is totally fuck up and can’t be replace any small parts inside the pump. My only choice is replacing it and took me at least more than two hours waiting over there because I asked them to check my brake at the same time including servicing and replacing oil filter.Everything turns out to be good news to me as my brake still can used for longer period. I remember my last replacement on my brake was one and a half years ago. Manual car really saved my money on maintenance and replacement parts if you maintain it well. It’s quite an old 90’ Toyota wagon and still working good conditions. A lot of people have asked me if I want to sell it. I never consider…

Saturday Fever - March 2008

I just read the local news today about the anti-piracy watch article at Brudirect.com. My country has been selling pirated stuffs almost more than ten years by now. Now they are still talking about copyrights for so many years that never once seeing them taking any real actions against the music and movies shop selling them in the public. Well, no one will buy the original if the movies and music are selling so expensive. Our local online QQestore do talks about the people looking for genuine products, I am one of them and Vista is in my list. But I am afraid will not buy in Brunei as they are selling too expensive, unless they pull the price down maybe I will reconsider it. For now, I am waiting for my original C&C 3 Kane Wrath expansion limited edition and DOW 40k expansion from Singapore. Damn I can’t wait to play the Red Alert 3 Beta!!!I also went to the car workshop to check my car. It just happen again my car got fuck up on the brake and I’m going to send it over tomorrow mo…

The Forbidden Kingdom

This is a must watch list movie of the year. Love it!"A discovery made by a kung fu obsessed American teen sends him on an adventure to China, where he joins up with a band of martial arts warriors in order to free the imprisoned Monkey King."

Tibet...

As part of Chinese myself, I have been watching the latest Tibet news closely on Youtube and of course, follow up the headlines on the internet. I never knew the hatred blow their mind away and started the serious protest ever and seeking for Independence in Tibet this year. While the Olympic is so damn close, the Chinese Government didn’t realize this protest would break out so badly. Well, they deserved on this originally if the bloodshed and war didn’t happen 50 years ago. This kind of things cannot be easily forgotten and forgiven. This will still pass on to the new generation.It’s hard to trace how the development from the past until now especially when Tibet is one of the best place to tour. There could be the financial issue and maybe probably the good benefit only goes to the China that causes so much heat on the Tibetans. But as far I little know about it, the China did indeed spend quite a lot of money improves the Tibet and that’s the fact. However, I was really surprised t…

Shutter 2008 - Remake!

This movie was original director from Thailand and they are pretty good. ^^ I didn't expect it there will be remake by the Japanese director and not to mention it's an English version. We will see if this new one is better than the previous one. Love watching horror movies with my light off. BOOO!!!

That's right, if you haven't know what good news is coming from Telbru. All espeed residential subscribers will be paying only B$68.00 (512kbps) for monthly rental starting this upcoming May and will be automatically change on the system, so all of you need not worried according to the official. The modem price also affected and gone down from $100.00 to B$65.00. This also includes the corporate subscriber’s monthly rental pricing which is also half the discount.The espeed pricing at the official website also have been revised and you can take a look on the official registration page. You may wonder why this sudden moved has been secretly going on in Telbru. According to some source (rumors), there is a new internet service provider coming in to Brunei soon. Not much information was told, but the company somehow offering WiFi internet services to home subscribers. If that is true, we might see yet another competition for the internet.For the time being, don’t take too much on …

Order Kane Expansion & Soul Storm

This few months has been too quiet for PC games release. I can’t play Supreme Commander RTS game because it needed high-end gaming system to run which is kinda suck. I can’t play Crysis FPS game because I can get sick easily with it. Well, it doesn’t mean I can’t play the others! That’s why today I decided to order Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars: Kane Warth Expansion and Warhammer 40K: Soul Storm expansion.Buying C&C title is totally worth it! This time around they bundle with Razer RTS mouse, DeathAdder. And it cost only S$89.00 all together. Damn this is the best collection I can’t miss out! Due to this sudden online purchase, I decided to cancel some Gundam orders at HLJ.com and control my budgets for next month carefully including replacement brakes for my car. T_T;;; Hate my sister, doesn’t know how to drive. The brakes are badly gone. Warhammer 40k Dawn of War is also one of my favourite games and Soul Storm expansion will not missed out in my list. I already figure t…

To Miri!

I was off to the neighboring country last Thursday. It’s been a long time since I step out of my house and went for some visit after two years. That’s why my passport pages are so clean without any stamps. Since it’s been a long time I didn’t travel to Miri. I decided spend my public holiday down there for little fun instead enjoying only watching animes and playing games. I really need some new air to relax and also look for my Utada Hikaru latest album recently just hit the store.(Photos Taken by Nokia N80 & Resize to 1024x768) We first head over for lunch at 2020 place, around 10.30AM before we headed over to Mega Mart for doing exchange money. I really missed the foods there and I was like an idiot who hasn’t eaten for a few days. It was so damn delicious (sorry the picture is a non-MUSLIM food). After that we head straight over to Goldsmith for exchange money. The exchange rate is 2.29 (Thursday), which is quite good for us, Bruneian. I decided to exchange for B$100.00 for ju…

I think this time around I will focus more on buying spray paint and accessories.

Free One Year McAfee VirusScan Plus 2008

HA!!! Another free full version anti-virus from McAfee. I'm not sure if they allowed Bruneian to used it. But I somehow manage to get it free download and account including printable receipt. ^^ I will install it once I reach home after work.

This is full version contains VirusScan Plus 2008 6 in 1 PC Protection from viruses, spyware and hacking so you can safely surf the web. I recommend using it on Vista or WinXP and also make sure you have enough memory ram loaded in your PC, at least 1GB is required. It might overkill your PC and laptop performance if you only have 512MB. Good luck with the free download while it still available.

Will I Buy DIY PC Parts in Brunei?

Probably for some accessories, but my answers will always "hell NO!!!" for high end parts when it comes with buying in Brunei. I have been monitor Brunei PC markets for such a long time and it just causing more nightmare for me running away to neighbouring countries instead. It’s not like I do not want to support local business. They just make the price like a joke or something especially when it comes with worst warranty ever. I will never buy a hardware warranty carry only three to six months which is ridiculous and imagine you are paying for a high price for it. I think the worst warranty ever I have seen so far is the CPU sold at QQeStore. I laugh so hard when they told me they only cover only for ONE month warranty. I wonder if there are idiots in Brunei would buy it. Luckily QQeStore decided to remove from their list, I check few days ago. If QQ want to dominate the PC market in Brunei, the only simple way is get the original warranty cover directly from the manufactur…

Sad News In Town 2

I just read the full news on Saturday BB last weeks. They finally responded about my earlier post about the public complained the fire fighter were late for one hour. Here’s the response:On web site reports of late arrival of fire fighter during the KB fire that killed seven people, Assistant Director of Operation Awang Shabandi bin Hj Halim said: "We received the call at 3.51am from a policeman using a mobile phone. The KB fire station responded to the call and arrived at the scene within three minutes. The account of the fire happened one hour before the Fire and Rescue team arrived is not true. The time of the emergency call was recorded in a device."Well, not sure if they are referring to my blog. >_>;;; But are you satisfied with their answer? My concern is not the emergency call. Phone call and arrival time is totally a different story to me. Only the witnesses at the scene know the answer very well. Since I was not there, I do not want to accuse the fire departm…

Offensive Comments in Your Blogs

I can’t believe somebody actually writes and complained about the users leave offensive comments in Borneo Bulletin Opinion page. I find it very funny about this blogger, I wonder if he or she really knew about the feature called comment moderations system? Here’s the funny complain post::I am a frequent blogger and have been blogging for years. Recently there have been some offensive comments originated from Brunei posted on my blog.I am unable to track down who posted the offensive comments but only know they are Bruneians.Does Brunei deal with cyber crime like this like in Malaysia or Singapore where the offenders can be jailed or fined?This incident has made me emotionally disturbed and I am too afraid to go to school to face everyone who knows me.Luckily, my family and friends gave me strong support to ignore the offenders and face them.They are wondering why don't I just shut down the blog but why do I have to end my hobby just because of some unknown offenders?For your info…

avpo/avmo.exe Removal - Revisit

I just got my SD G Generation Spirits PS2 game not long ago and I was totally addicted with it without realizing to write something on my blog. Anyway, as for now, I believe many of you out there might have problem getting rid of these nasty avpo.exe and avmo.exe viruses from your desktop PC and laptop especially the flash drive in Window XP. Not many anti-virus program able to detect it (even today), even if they do, it only manage to cleans or delete certain files only.

After a long search for tools on the web for solutions, this is currently the best tested utility known as Dr.Web CureIt tool manage to clean many related avpo.exe and avmo.exe. But I still find some lacking in cleaning remaining left over related unknown files in system32 folder. Restore the previous Window XP hidden folder setting and unlock back the Task Manager including remove from the startup programs is not a problem for me. Only for those who have no knowledge on computers might have a hard time dealing with t…

Why Mac Book Air Is Not Likely A Good Choice

I don’t hate Mac Book Air or dislike it as a Window fan boy. I simply don’t like the concept of its design and how it ended without any DVD drive with it or upgrade might eventually causing it problems in the future. People might think that it’s a cool gadget to own. But to me, I would rather prefer go get normal laptop that have a room expansion and upgrade in the future long run. Cool looking laptop doesn’t really worth buying as it doesn’t last long for years and not to mention everyone knows Mac book Air hardware are expensive. Well, unless you have money to burn then Mac Book Air is for you. But I would rather get an iPod Touch if I am going to burn my money.

News has been floating around everywhere complaining or talk about bad thing on Mac Book Air. But I still like this Gone, Without a Trace article on how he lost his Mac Book Air, which is quite logically and understandable why it’s call ‘Air’.

Room Cleaning For March 2008

My Cooler Master prizes are coming shortly and my current room is quite occupying especially by the storage and old table. It was annoying actually. Both of them take so much space and causing very dirty on the floor and hard to clean up sometimes. So I decided to do some adjustments and extra work space for PC repairing including better access to my parts. What I did here is just simply put my storage cabinet on top of the old table. Since it’s not heavy and I don’t use the table often. I better off putting there, not to mention old table still not shaking for more than 30 or 40+ years which I got it from my Grandmother when I moved into my father house. Imagine those days the furniture are actually a top notch quality and handmade.It took me at least four to five hours to finish it moving and rearrange the stuffs and throw away the useless stuffs. I also spend time packing my clothes on to the box for donations. Of course it’s the old one. Others, I also do a testing the ceiling lam…

Sad News In Town

I just got words from my sister and friends that there is fire in the old house (nearby St John’s school) in Kuala Belait today which occur at the morning around 3.00AM. It was reported that at least seven people have burn to death. There were survivals (number were unknown) who made it and no serious injured were reported. However, the most serious issue has happen at the same time. No one knows if this is true or false. But this public’s voices were raises and very concerned when everyone heard this.According to the survival, our local and the only nearest fire station firefighters were late for at least one hour. How did that happen and the distance can be reach between six to seven minutes? I was really shock and disappointed to hear this kind of news because they were actually should arrive at the scene the earliest. Not to mention they hit the biggest rock ever on their faces because the first arrived firefighters were actually came all the way from Panaga at Seria which took th…

Support Anti-Aging Research

Have you ever think about living more than 100+ and enjoy seeing what changes might happen on this earth and new discovery on other planets? I am the person who is really interested if there are chances to prolong my life (not immortal) and prevent many diseases like cancers and heart diseases or any other worst scenario where children’s born still carries the same diseases from the previous generation. I really wish to prevent that happening or even wanted it happen. That’s where it comes with longevity research and anti-aging research had to be happening now, not just only in the future.

However, they are still many people don’t agree on such research these days. Truly, I don’t know why and not even really see much blogger really voicing or bring up any articles about the research. But Scott Wainer from wrevenue.com was the only one I read so far, wrote a very good post about anti-aging research articles yesterday and I believe everyone should spend sometimes reading it including blo…

Cooler Master Kode5 Prize Update!

I just got my mail today directly from Cooler Master Event teams and asked for confirmation on my prize. Hell YEAH!!! I can’t wait to receive my prize next weeks. Well, the problem here is that, CM still owned me two more prizes that they didn’t send last year which is known as X-Craft 360. I already giving a quick reply for an answer and hope I will be getting good news later. ^^;;;I am still planning on what should I do with the extra chassis, but I am going to check it out first if it there will be any different build version. I already prepare to sell off my Hyper212 CPU fans as I have four of them. Not I will keep two with me until another two sell off. I hope I can generate much money to save more from it to do a best upgrade ever on my next gaming PC. Anyhow, still waiting for reply…

Brunei Going For World Cyber Games Rumors

Alright this is just a rumors, it seem like someone in the local companies have received the license to organize the popular gaming world known as World Cyber Games (WCG). I do not have any information on the name of the company. If this is true, that will be good news to all local gamers and those of us who wish it so hard for so many years to make it happen. The reasons are pretty simple, if they organize the tournament and start qualifier players in Brunei. We will be heading straight towards to the WCG stage instead wasting your money and time going to other countries for qualifying which is truly rubbish when I heard these stories about it. Do you think other countries would allow someone from other country take over their seat? Comon!However, since so many well know cyber cafés have been closed for so many years. I wonder how many gamers were still playing Counter-Strike Source, Warcraft III, Starcraft or maybe Halo. Even if they are many out there still playing, I have to say t…
