Stupid Old Car

Damn my old car fooling around at the time like this. The clutch fluid suddenly went empty on the first day of May. I already refill it two days ago but never expect this coming so fast which I normally done once a week, even twice. It was lucky that this was not a serious problem but just had to park on the road side in a hot day and asked my friend for help, drove me to buy the brake & clutch fluid. The old car is getting lots of problem every each month, seem like it’s time for me to get a new car sooner.

I already recently did some survey pricing for new cars release this year. Quite a lot of impressive design and especially those SUV type cars are cheaper nowadays. Currently the new Hyundai Tucson 2010 version strikes me. It looks sporty, nice design, big space, and good price (B$27,000.00 plus for low spec). Also receives well reputation from many reviews and the local agent car servicing are cheaper compare to NBT. I haven’t check with the local agent, according to the official Hyundai statements. It comes with five years warranty or 300,000KM extended warranty of your choice.

Currently all of them were sold out within one month at the local because there was an offer. Not too much worry for me because it is undecided at the moment as I have to wait till reaching one year work with the new company before starting a car loan. Who knows someone stab my back at the sudden causing me losing my jobs. Anything happens.

My second favor is Ford Focus 2012, slightly redesign and improved version. The reason choosing Ford because this model is still going to be built in Europe. It has most of the latest advance equipments you can find on many European made cars nowadays. I really like the new design and features. Although, the new version hasn’t release yet especially the price is still unknown in Brunei. I already saw my friends driving the 2009 released version and man, I really love it! He brought it for B$25,000 (I think) during promotions this year and the price is actually more because he went for some upgrade.

I know, I know about Ford history. Sometimes you really need to give the maker a chance, not to mention Ford is actually one of the most reliable cars today in the world and the price are coming closer to beat most Japanese cars maker out there. It depends on anyone point of view, but all my relatives are so annoying kept bashing me not to buy Ford brand. Why? They are the Toyota cheer leaders.

I haven’t decided yet for the third option. However, it won’t be either Toyota or Mitsubishi. Both of them have the least new cars this year and none of them are any more had the attractive looks. The new revised VIOS 2010 version already launched by NBT last week, damn, it was so plain (as always). Only minor improvements and some extra features include this time. Not many changes to the design also except the bumper were replaced, you can check out the gallery at official site to find out more.

Not sure how much the new VIOS cost in Brunei since I don’t even care about it anymore because Japanese cars are getting more expensive due to strong YEN issue. That’s not all. The NBT servicing charges and the parts are overpriced! Trust me, even the employees asked me not to buy from them. All parts at the agent workshops are markup more than 50%. Take the VIOS plastic rim cover as example. They quote my friend each for B$160.00 and that was seriously got to be out of their mind chopping us so much. What the fuck are this made of? Carbon Fiber? Alloy? Geezz…this is why Toyota have so much problem these days around the world.

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.
