May to Now

Where’s my car? Everyone is asking me this same question over and over again until today. My answer, I don’t know. KIA Sportage 2011 is a crazy hit around the world and recently received international car of the year award. This definitely going boosts up the sales and everyone had to prepare for the worst shortage supplies by the local car company. I already feel impatient and cancel Hyundai Tucson 2010 last year waiting almost for seven months. Now I have to experience the same issue all over again. It’s time for me to move on for alternative car.

There are currently already two cars in mind after I went to KIA show room in KB yesterday. First choice KIA Cerato (Forte) 1.6 Auto five door and the second is KIA Cerato (Forte) 2.0 Auto Sedan. Both of them listed in very good price and pack with nice features compare to any other brands in Brunei. I have to say my most favorite at the moment is KIA Cerato hatchback. I like the design and the rear almost has identical design feel like Sportage 2011. Still, there is a problem. The shipment for this 5 doors model is quite few so I might simply go for Sedan. BTW, both come with same 5 years warranty or 150,00KM, not bad.

Okay, you might think I am a KIA fan. I’m not, it’s not like I never did any survey for other brands. It just almost all of them can’t meet my expectation especially the design and requirements except the Ford Fiesta Sedan 2011 launched last year on December. The new Fiesta does look appealing, good price and attractive. But there are major drawbacks for my personal taste.

Firstly, no USB port and only has line in jack. Secondly, there is only one Fiesta model available in Brunei market. Thirdly the Premier Motor sales agent has lack on information about SYNC feature built in. However, they told me it comes with Bluetooth. But they didn’t demo to me how it work even there are two display car in the show room.

When Jeremy Clarkson reviews Fiesta five door versions on Top Gear two years ago, I feel like I want to get it one day. Sadly, the new version simply just disappointed, it doesn’t pack with the cool feature that the American heavily advertises. For your information, SYNC is made by Microsoft. So I don’t understand why they don’t want to bring over to Asia market.

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.
