Weekend Holiday Hoot for December!

I went to the capital with my family and cousin for weekend window shopping on last Sunday. Our first plan destination is the mall in Gadong. I didn’t really expect the shopping over there is quite boring now except there were some computer booths set up fill with crowds. Lucky me, it was a good opportunity first seeing the ACER gaming Predator and the high-end LCD display over there. I have to say the plastic quality build of the case looks pretty good and the design doesn’t seem that bad either. However, the downsides for my opinion are because it made of plastic and easily fill with dust. The LCD display was not bad either when it comes with fast response time and the brightness looks sharp. In the end, both of them are simply just too expensive for such setup. If you have cash to spare, get yourself a custom build.

I also drop by in Bits Computer booth getting a China cheap notebook cooler for very low price B$6.00. I have been thinking for a while getting one for years and I totally missed out the good one at AC Ryan back in Singapore PC Fair. This time, I decided to grab one without thinking so much because I’m just going to used it for my wireless router and internet modem. A little bit of advice, Kingston memory cards and USB storage does come with 5 years warranty. You should be very careful on fake copy brand.

After that, I spend B$7.00 for donuts set which contains six pieces from Fun Donuts shop in the Mall. It was quite delicious and my grandmother likes eating the Green tea donut favor which has less sugar in it. I recommended to everyone for afternoon tea and parties.

 

Next stop, we headed to Kiulap Mall. Damn boring and lots of shops closed over there. Without wasting much time, we then went straight over to the Hua Ho department store. I was at first expecting I might able to get the Network tester in Kiulap. No luck at all and just applied for Hua Ho discount card for $5.00 before heading to next Hua Ho store at another location. Well, luck was actually on my side and I was able to get two Neng Shou Network testers for B$4.30 each. Muahahaha…it was damn cheap and I decided to grab two of them before it runs out. It was an important tool requires being able use at work and especially when I was onsite. If you are looking cheap network tester, go shop in Hua Ho as they sell some of the computer accessories in very cheap price and of course, it was China made.

All and all I spend at least B$28.6 on weekend shopping. It was a bit sad when I am experience some money issue this year and thinking trying not to spend so much. I guess as long I am spending for something that can used in daily life and work. I don’t think it was a waste in the end. Happy shopping to everyone!

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.
