Buying a House in Brunei is Harder Than Ever

As an average income person, I don't even know how much time, sweat and stress to achieves your dream owning a house in Brunei. The more I try to save, the higher the price goes up in time or brought by the rich for renting and resale higher strategy market. This is really sucked thinking about it every day. Seeing how Brunei has change so did the Governments, economics and religion. I already gave up waiting for the citizenship result and now focus towards studying bit by bit hoping for better chance switching job with good pay. Was never a bookworm or bright student back then. You just need to try something new but age seem to be problem sooner.

It is very regretful not telling myself saving money when I was a kid working in chicken farm and then went out to buy toys for what I earned. If I knew my father would give everything away to the second wife, this could have been avoided in the first place. Things just never goes what you wanted to, and no, I don't hate my father making such decision. He's the lord in the house so he can do whatever he wants.

Everything was a past now and still living in my own father house, renting, of course. So far no movement yet from his second wife asking higher rent or robbing us for spending luxury. I told my sister we need to find ways to buy cheap house. Size of the house not our concern, as long there are three bedrooms and able to park two cars at least. Nowadays apartment only can hold one parking space. Unless you buy for yourself. Other than that, terrible idea getting it when the Brunei transportation sucks.

Not like we never look for houses or apartment less than 120K below. You can just hardly able to find such price range nowadays. No one can imagine how much further both house and apartment going to cost in the future. But reaching the target just seem to be impossible even our salary combine together. Bank loan only gives out 70% and need good deposit to cover 30%. We have no choice but to keep looking and hope for good news. I want our renting money goes to our own home not flowing everything to her.

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.
