Another Year of Boring Christmas and Shit happen

Feel like having a Sunday, same as usual staying at home doing all sorts of things. This month is kinda like shit to me. Passport expires and can’t even get a new car before Christmas. My life is becoming too meaningless boring if I don’t go out and enjoy soon. This does remind me one of my friends saying nothing weird about that because everyone already get used to it since the day we are born in boring Brunei.

Anyway, quite busy and tired this past week’s working on company PC maintenance. At the same time getting into trouble with an employee in other department. Thanks to my openly discussion and opinions, she quite pissed off at me. I don’t really care much if I am rude or disrespect what I wrote in the email. You may think is just a small matter, but for a big private company I working for. You got to be very careful as people loves to poke you and use email as an evidence or proof.

It’s like this. I personally hate the secretary using email as a way of communication to contact the IT department for any urgent matters or require our service ASAP. I don’t understand why they don’t bother to call us directly when there is telephone available. Don’t you find it weird and stupid without logical sense? It’s like they never take the words wrote in the email as important at all and simply ignores it.

The word urgent and ASAP use in the email are always top priority in the company rules. Imagine how fuck is that when we just get back from the office and suddenly reading the emails that require us urgently, we have to rush back there to fix it. Other shitty things are that chances they are waiting for us to solved the problem. What if we don’t? Of course, we get complains and this going for too long.

Our IT job is not just sitting in the office, we move around to on site doing servicing and multitasking on different works every day. So we usually unable to keep track all the emails and normally received phone calls a lot. Their way of action does put us greatly in trouble and get question most of the time why we didn’t follow up the issues. This is the moment I started to get heated up and decided to write back. Not sure yet what is the result of it. It feels better for me because I dislike this going forever and getting us all the blames for not attending urgency.

Happy Holiday to all!

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 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.
