Walterhobby.com is Gone? Update!

Update 2: -

Okay, I have done some check on this rumors and speculation about the owner of Walterhobby.com might be running away with all the customers’ money. However, according to his website, he posted an image telling all its customers that he is currently having trouble with his internet problem so all reply are going to be very late. But that image has been up for months so it’s quite disturbing and buyers are starting to be impatient hearing their pre-ordering status. Even reports that shipping took more than months. Man, worst than my two weeks experience. LOL!

If you have read my review, I already stated the issue about the shipping and the stocks. The only thing I forget to include is about the direct payments during checkout. I didn’t include it because almost all HK online stores I shop with are using the same method systems so I don’t pay too much attention on this. But I will definitely mention it in my next review and update the previous reviews. My advice also never pre-order anything that require direct payments first, unless that site are a trusted by toys community webmasters.

Anyhow, there is currently no real answer yet so I am unable to prove anything until the investigation results are confirm by Hong Kong Authority. The complaint was originally filed by one of the members at Hobby Fanatics so I will check their reply from time to time about the progress. Nonetheless, some buyers are reporting that they received news about their order already shipped out according to Paypal (what? This is the first time hearing Walter using it for issuing invoicing for shipped out) so let see if they received it or not.

Side note: Someone actually done a free advertising for Walter Hobby just to get a discount for the toys. That’s not a really sounds a good deal to me at all. He should be receiving FREE toys for review instead. Never help any online toy stores to advertise for free if you are not getting a good benefit from it. For example like E2046 asking for a exchange link with your blog.

 

Update 1: -

I am currently looking into this rumors and investigate more about it. For the meantime, DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING from the online store. I will update it once I know more what happen.

Thanks to the Anonymous informing me in the comment from my review.

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.
