Happy Bad Start 2015!

Yeah, it is to me. Life is always the 1st of everything. So for the bad start for this month, I sent my 24+ year old Toyota Corolla Wagon vehicle for full checkup since the Chinese New Year is coming next month.

The inspection on the faulty parts (last year engine) was quite bad on the front. The steering bush almost broken and the effect wear out the tires side rubber. The repair costs repairing and replacing parts are definitely going to be killing half my salary. Luckily, the mechanic boss told me the existing absorbers are good in condition after they done more testing. Still, the rest will continue to be fixing and replace even if there are extra faulty parts found.

Not like I had a lot of money in hand or at bank. My way of keeping the old car in good working condition mustn’t just fixing one by one concept mind just to cut costs. Replacing all the necessary faulty parts in one goal always recommended no matter if there even just minor problem to me. This practice actually helps you save your budget for long term maintenance cost.

Another bad start, from this year on ward there will be fewer Transformers toys and Gundam kits order online. I am reviewing what to keep and which will be remove in the HLJ listing to cut down the spending further if not needed. It was hard decision and sad but I just need to keep thinking the money is on the old car for now and future funding on the courses for finding better jobs.

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.
