The Worst Nightmare Having iPad 2 3G

Sometimes owing an iPad 2 3G are convenient for browsing the internet and download application directly. However, bad thing do happen if you are not very careful. Never mind about the Foursquare app (or others) in your phones or tablets which many of you already know telling others where you at. But the worst part is paying high price on your 3G phone bills which is the shittiest financial blow to your life.

My mom and nephew flew back here not long ago. Apparently they bring along the iPad 2 3G version with them because my nephew is so stubborn wanted to play games. What they didn’t realize is the Singtel services are continue charging the roaming fee mad after they arrived in Brunei. Totally a big nightmare to my brother after realizing the Sim card didn’t pull out from the device. The charging kept jumping to S$2000+.

Some of you may suggest turning on the flight mode or switching off the sim mode are going to stop the roaming. Let me tell you IT DOESN”T WORK. I have no idea what online applications did my sister-in-law installed in the iPad 2. These applications are doing something silly by turning on the sim mode automatically in the setting without realizing.

I double check the setting and yes, it was fully off. But my brother still calling back to turn off the iPad 2 because according to the Singtel, it is continues charging. I choose the best option to solve this issue by taking out the sim card completely.

My brother is entirely now in a fury mode. I understand his situation due to the rise on taxes and increase standard of living in Singapore. Well, they both are going to get scolded when getting back there this week badly. Nonetheless, this is very important lesson not to forget taking out the sim card if you are using service plan before going for vacations. Otherwise, better off using prepaid card for safer way if you are forgetful person or just get non 3G iPad 2 instead.

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.
