Room Remake: The Planning

Surveying is of course the best move before starting. Even I have to make sure setting a right budget since I am going for DIY. My room isn't that big and also not my own house too. So I'm not planning to spend any unnecessary things except the furniture’s. But I do plans on getting rid the air conditioner and install ceiling fan instead.

Problem Facing

The current lasted almost more than 10 years and now water dripping problem. Not sure if its water blocks. Next month I will need to call up the technician to check and washed. If it's going to break down sooner, I see no point continuing repairing. This is what the ceiling fan comes to play which hopefully able to make my room cool. With the electricity fee increasing, probably a good move going for it.

Paints

After watching the World Greenest Homes and learned about low VOC paint that have low risk effect on human health. I decide went to one of the local hardware shops looking for one. It's good to know they actually selling it, the Nippon Paint Odour-less Premium all-in-1 interior wall paint. It cost around less then $70 and my guess is enough for the room.

Brush and tools

What I need are paint brushes, paint rollers, scrapers and cement putty to do some fixing on the wall. However, I am still considering if I should getting the cordless drill tool. It doesn't come cheap and question myself do I really need it after finishing remake my rooms?

Furniture's

I did went to the Star Home scouting for IKEA furniture's. The primary target is the computer table and I already found one. The MICKE desk that cost $160 if I'm not mistaken. That table looks great and I really love it. It is surely a good replacement reducing the space in my room.

Other current consideration if it's a good idea putting wall shelf’s in my room. I already told myself not to make any unnecessary drilling and damaging the room. But I just realize what I can do is making use of the old computer table and do some modifications.

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.
