Brunei Toy Convention 2015 – Vendors

With Brunei toy convention ended on 2nd August, there are still many not realize or visit the event. If you didn't make it there, no worry, I got it covers with plenty photos and still spend time reorganize to post separately.

The event itself wasn't big compared to the last EACON 2012, but not disappointed because you got to see something different this time as the toy collectors get together contribute a lot of their great toys and effort setting up exhibition display for the public viewing. I'm not sure who owned the Hot Toys figures, looking at the impressive numbers they got there probably can get you at least a car. This shows how crazy we collectors really are. *Photos will be in separate post. 

For vendors, it sure does have some new faces turned up in the event. Hot Wheels collectors making appearance as well selling and hosting drag race competition. Sad to say, I didn't really pay too much attention to Hot Wheels products ever since from childhood. Of course for those who is a collector may find something interesting there. 

When it comes to interesting, yes, I did grab something off from one of the toy market that was very rare chance obtaining nowadays. The Lego minifig Galaxy Patrol, Samurai Warrior, Space Villain and Battle Mech all for total $20.00 (BND). A bit dusty, at least it's cheap. =P 

Yes, the Transformers. I got to admit my heart was so tempting buying Transformers Cloud Ultra Magnus from him. It just August is never good month to start with since I just got my KIA Sportage service with battery replace and upcoming old car insurance killing the wallet hard. 

Since I am nowadays very skeptic and careful buying 3rd party Transformers toy. Having a chance close up look at the Planet X products at scene gives me time to think if I should save up collecting all dinobots Cybertron version. The toy itself was really details and great for display in the shelves.

No doubt that this year is all about masterpiece series. But to me, Takara products just have design flaws and issues that continue put me off the cart. I am glad able to get rid MP Grimlock few years ago without bother thinking ever buying again. Still, collectors who love the old Transformers cartoon characters should prepare for the worst since the 3rd party companies now stepping in to bring out your favorite character into the market aggressively.

Finally, the rest of the vendors selling Gundams, comic action and trading figures. I couldn't really find anything more since they don't actually bring a lot to sell and Japanese products weren't much either. Gundams is out of question as my existing already cost me who knows how many years to finish.

One vendor who display The Walking Dead construction set series did indeed catch my attention. I can't imagine the toys itself was freaking build from Lego like and not to mention the overall looks in amazing details. Learning it was made by McFarlane, visit their website and found the upcoming construction set is Game of Thrones in fall this year. Defintely looking forward what else they might bring to the table next!

Next post, the toy exhibition!

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 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.
