Brunei Slaps Harsh Laws on Christians. REALLY?

While I don't really like commenting too much on religious, unless it's ridiculous or stupid daily stories passes down by generation (and by books). From what 30-days.net claim in their website regarding harsh law on Christian article really quite new to me for a person living 30 years in Brunei.

No one knows how or when did this kind of story actually happen in Brunei. But I do have to say it was totally baseless statement posted by this Admin without doing careful research into this. Perhaps could be this person went to public openly illegally promoting Christianity who got kick out from the country. Otherwise how do they wanted to making up such story from the beginning? However, this person have to be grateful that it didn't end up staying in jail and get harsh punishments by the Brunei law.

Let me correct this one of the biggest mistake statement about “...Christians seeking opportunities for higher education must leave the country to access universities.”.

Well, not unless you are seeking and your future must only choose Christian's University. The ministry of education never picky over what races or religious you are. As long you are doing very good in your educations and willing to continue contribute your effort helping Brunei growth. His Majesty and the governments will sponsor those to get scholarship and even sent you to foreign University to studies.

“Evangelism is strictly forbidden and some local Christians have been arrested and detained for planning outreach to the population.”

Again, not unless you stupidly head on approach Muslim to convert Christianity. That is really the biggest mistake that shouldn't be done in any Islam countries. Even I who didn't have any highest education background know this simple rule that they can never in life convert to other religious as long you (Muslim) are staying here.

“Christian based (expatriate) schools must give instruction in Islam to all students and are not allowed to teach Christianity.”

For your information, this is a must and long time passed down restricted rules for private or international schools in Brunei. These are not just applied to Christian, other religious too. I think the instruction in Islam could be referring to MIB (Melayu, Islam and Beraja). It is every schools nowadays compulsory subject but know that it's not trying to asked us to become Muslim. MIB is simply given us more insight information that this country are only governing by Malay, teaching in Islam and rule by monarch.

Lastly, it's quite interestingly that mention “...a foreign English teacher simply prayed for blessings on a Malay family during the Eid al-Fitr celebrations (at the end of Ramadan) was given 48 hours to leave the country.

That I really like to know how and why in full details. There isn't any news mentioning in the search so I take it as fake until we found evidence from the news and truth.

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.
