Speak Up on Tragedy Photos

There are a lot of (pointless) opinions and complains lately on Brunei Times newspaper regarding the photos published on 7th September news about the Muslim family girls in car accident at school. The readers are unhappy because the photos are either disrespectful or whatever they can think of and even call it cultural sensitivity problem at Twitter.

Honestly, neither I see anything wrong in the photo nor do I find anyway that insults the Muslim family. That just my personal opinions and rest of the locals are mixed to this issue. Most important question of all, did the family agree the photos can be published by the BT newspaper on that day? According to them, yes, the family gave permission to the photographers to go ahead. End of story.

Since I involved in the discussion, I decided to ask around Malay colleagues today and let those sees the BT news photos. I did point out is it the photo shows the body of the girl that make them feel too sensitive’s and disrespectful to the family? They didn’t find that is the problem and as long the families allow BT publishing on the newspaper. Of course they are some find disturbing and unable to describe what makes them feel uncomfortable after looking at the photos.

Photos can mean anything. It just the discussions sometimes went overboard even involving culture sensitively issue which I find it really stupid. So it’s pointless continue debating who is right or wrong and give the family a break.

If you would like to (or continue) express your concern and opinions on the BT photos, discuss this using hash tag #BTpix and #brunei (if you wish) in your Twitters. Check the guidelines for more information.

Brunei Second Online Store - Shopping.com.bn

I was actually surprised finding the second online store in Brunei other than QQeStore. I have no idea when they started their online business. But it’s good to have a competitor around, right? You might ask how it compared to the current rival QQeStore. Shopping.com.bn is still a long way competing to their rival. You will be able to find out easily why I said that once you visit the Shopping.com.bn.
Good things about Shopping.com.bn No registrations fee required Many of their products price can be comparable to QQeStore They bundle free extra accessories (selected items) Doing international ordering Now, why I won’t buy at Shopping.com.bn

Simple, their warranty for the products makes me laugh after I look into the camera and Dell section. Many look alright for me. However, it seems like they never done their homework properly before listing their product information online. Check out the pictures I snap online, what kind of mistake did they made after looking at it?

HAHAHA!! Are you …

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…
