Pushing Locals to Private Companies Using Money?

This topic is quite a hit recently regarding the issue not hiring enough locals working with private companies in Brunei last year. Because of this, Local Employment and Workforce Development Agency (APTK) introduce a financial incentives scheme to all private companies by encouraging or recruiting locals to work there. What’s the advantage of this new scheme benefit for both local jobless and the private companies? According to Brudirect, it offering by providing allowance of $5 daily during skills training, 65 per cent financial incentives while undergoing on-the-job training and bonus of $1,000 in the first year and $1,500 for working for two years in permanent employment. Although it didn’t describe if PR as well getting this benefits, to me, it sound like the Government is doing the same spoiling game again what we see today. So familiar that it’s giving free allowances every month encouraging graduate students continue going to local colleges and UBD completing their studies. I…

The Eve & First day of CNY 2012

EveBoring as usual, there aren’t much celebrating going on this year. The Chinese temple in KB didn’t get the approval letter doing any mini performance and long shooting fireworks on the countdown eve day. As suspected, apparently they pissed off the head of the police officer last year so everything not going too well. Visitors and tourist’s fun expectation turn to shit, so sorry about that. Of course this have to blame the owner for the lack of traffic controls and unable moved the locals ignorance drivers causing road blockage even making the ambulance unable to pass through during the critical time. Did they learn their lesson is way beyond my reach. Hopefully next year we can expect better for celebration in KB. FirstAgain, repeating the same scenario from last and even few years back. But this time, I find Chinese New Year is now part of sadness thing in life. Maybe it didn’t happen around you (yet), now we sees misses people and less happy mood then before. Two of my aunt’s pa…

OH MY I laugh so hard on this one.

CNY Room Cleaning? Let it be!

Ha! Every year before Chinese New year, I would start doing room cleaning on Saturday or Sunday. Somehow, this year I don’t feel like doing it now. I have been thinking for some change so I prefer doing them altogether at one go. Finding nice furniture’s in Brunei is fucking hard these days. Court Furniture is no go for me especially the KB sales lady are bitches who love fucking up customers moods. If IKEA is opening officially in Brunei, I definitely ride there even it’s located in capital. Not saying you can’t find here, but damn the Mata Mata quoting the price so high something’s when it comes to furniture’s. As far I concern now, I must starts looking display shelves for my toys. The dusts are annoying and no way to prevent it. I also need to replace the office table to simple type with no drawer beside my leg and cabinet for my slowly build up manga collections. People and friends have always recommended me to go down Miri to find. For me it’s very inconvenient when you are not…

Jim Jeffries–Alcoholocaust

Warning! First of all, there are plenty of swearing and offensive materials especially on religious in this video. If you don’t like it, don’t watch. Don’t complain in the end that I never warned you!

Powered Zaku II F2

This is the final Gunpla 2011 work that I haven’t posted up yet. First of all, consider these my first experience combining both 1/100 and 1/144 size together. I never had done it before so it’s a good learning new thing and testing. The Zaku II parts you see here is the first released MG 1.0 I got from ten years plus. None painted with few broken and missing parts. The original plan is to repair and modifications. However, I choose to assemble it to the HGUC Zaku II F2 instead. I do have to admit there are few errors and mistake made during of the works. So the color is the keys for covering up the ugly side. Another problem is the weight on both legs booster. It affects the movement and posing because it’s simply too heavy which of course adding the aftermarket beam pipe putting in more. So far, the back packs is okay and I love the overall looks.

MUV-LUV ALTERNATIVE THE EURO FRONT with Limited Figure Book

I am thinking about pre-ordering this limited version of the MUV-LUV ALTERNATIVE THE EURO FRONT book with limited EF-2000 Typhoon figure. Somehow I am holding back so bad because of REVOLTECH producing it. If they contain Kotobukiya plastic kit, I definitively put my money down. But it isn’t. The limited version basically just repainted to white color base on the upcoming EF-2000 Typhoon Wilfried Eichberger release next month! Nothing special, no new stuffs and the weapons remain all the same. Don’t get me wrong, I like MUV-LUV mecha. Revoltech is just so not my taste. Not sure if you noticing, don’t you think most of the limited version books released are from Revoltech? I guess their brand is slowly failing in the market so probably the publishers are getting cheaper contracts to produce together.

The New Restart 2012

Wow! It was just so fast facing new day and year suddenly. Hopefully, something might happen and good change in my life this year. For the bad, most of it is from works and next month going to renewing road tax and insurance for my KIA Sportage. Damn fast one year old, hope the insurance not going to be very expensive. Arggg…. As for the toys, this year is going to be amazing blowing my money off. There are lots of great mecha and plastic toys recently announced especially the Gunpla and 3rd party Transformers. Luckily most of the pre-order going to be listed on March (finger cross). So still have two months to go. Although I always said to myself stop spending on Gunpla. Things just never work out. The Gunpla now in my room are not different than the last two years, same numbers and size. Since this few months going to be Gundam Seed fever, I am going to begin working on Seed VS Astray tomorrow. I already had done working on Powered Zaku II F2 today, just need more touch up finishing…
