EA Con 2011 – First Brunei Gunpla Competition 2011

If you remember the previous CH-Toy Nation Gunpla survey, they are now open for registration. Expressive Art Convention (partner with CH Toy Nation) will host the Gunpla contest on July 16th (Saturday) and 17th (Sunday) 2011 at Asma Hotel, Jerudong. For your information, the competition is divided into 3 categories which you may refer below.
For category A and B, I am a bit confusing but disappointed as well. They didn’t seem to mention clearly if you can work on scratch built and use Kotobukiya option parts or weapons units on the Gunpla idea. I already sent email for clarification so expect latest update from my blog.
I do understand they wanted to restrict modelers using 3rd party resin and conversion kit. However, I don’t see why Hobby Japan and Dengeki Hobby exclusive/limited kits have to be restricted as well in 1/144 category. Those kits were officially made by Bandai, not to mention they are Furoku and High Grade kit too which does not consider as resin listing. I do not see any reason why it will harm the competitions anyway when you can see more great 1/144 challenging work compare to 1/100 category.
What I am saying may offend the judges and organizers. However, as a modeler, I am hoping to see others can unlock their full potentials and show their Gunpla idea work in both A & B category because those parts of the important key resources. Why only open categories get all benefit and make both A & B category boring?

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.
