Toys “R” Us Open in Brunei

Many great joy and cheers finally seeing Toys “R” Us open in Brunei. Last Sunday I (with sis and cousin) went over there after sending my mom and nephew to the airport. The location isn’t really friendly finding for KB folks. I did remember how to get there in the past (5-6 years) but needed to drive around to recall the way.

The place occupied almost half the blocks and sees tons of toys there. Damn, what a wonderland for me. But what are cost of the toys there? Seriously I don’t know if it would be correct comparing to Miri branch? My cousin can answer since he brought many toys over there. According to him, yes, most of the toys here are cheaper around 5-7+. It may not be much because you can’t compare the current high exchange rate for ringgit.

So did I get anything there? Well, I choose Lego City 4 in 1 Super Pack currently sold for BND$39.90. I was thinking about going for Nerf Stampede which price at $79.90 with extra free bullet pack. Thanks to my carelessness overly order Gunpla last month. I have to limit my budget spending for this month.

It just too bad I haven’t seen any Lego Space Defense Force Alien Conquest there yet even not seeing any Transformers Reveal the Shield. Probably because just open not long ago so may be more coming sooner I hope. Not sure if we might expect seeing Toy “R” Us exclusive toy there or not. If there are, man I am going to drive up there to hunt more toys since I got a membership card during my purchase.

For your information, you must spend more than BND$50.00 to be eligible getting free membership card. The card are usable in Asia no matter which Toy “R” Us branch you visit. If you got the card from Miri, you can also use it there.

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.
