EACON 2012 – The Shops

It was great to see new community and shops setting in EACON last year. Even though I have no idea why a computer shop were setup in the events. Still it is good to see the place fill up with different interesting stuffs. I got to say the Yeszone – Enterprise from Seria wins the attention to the visitors.

Probably most of you who doesn't know much about them, Yeszone - Enterprise was opened last year in Seria plaza who started selling K-pops, J-pops, mandarin-pops and toys. I didn't know the two days event, they brought in so many toys and t-shirts to sell. My heart was tempting to get the Figma Black Rock Shooter (anime version). It just too bad I spent most on my new camera. Check out their FB!

Another new toy shop started last year known as Fanboys Infinite from the capital who also sells comics and toys. What I didn't expect they also showcasing the original classics games and consoles in the booth. The classic gamers would definitely love to see this. Check out their FB!

The gallery booth is where it showcase the artist art works. Hope to see them succeed into CG and improvement works in the future.

Mega Bloks Halo toys diaroma setup at the booth are amazing by Nanyang shop from KB where I got my Tamiya spray. They did put up some toys to sell but I have no idea who taking care of it.

Now, the other side was Magic The Gathering club. I have been quite curious a long time how and why Magic The Gathering trading card game remain so popular for a long time. There are people find it funny and say ridiculous child game. Once you learned how this card game plays work, it really not as easy as you think. It took me a while to understand how to play the normal game. The advance were even more harder. This game is good for training brain on decision making.

Candy House. Never heard of them, but they sell lots of Anime goodies and accessories especially their neko headband were popular among the buyers.

CF King, the only one computer shop in EACON 2012. I don't understand why they would want to set up booth in the event not unless they sell something that might interested to the cosplayers. My guess most likely targeting the gamers. Still this event doesn't seem to be a good place to sell.

This is the Vanguard booth, the Japanese version trading card game. According to my friend, this game is much easier to learn and straight forward compared to Magic The Gathering.

Another small shops setup on the side selling Japanese books, comics, toys, figures and cosplayers costume. I remember one of my Gunpla enemy brought a Japanese English dictionary from them.

Ha! Lego display at the right side of the stage on the second days. I wasn't really onto Star Wars theme, those ships and build are huge! Not a cheap brick collections.

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.
