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.

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…
