Missed HG Customize Parts Campaign Summer 2015 at Hobby Link japan

If you want to get Bandai HG Customize Parts campaign stuffs, look no further only Hobby Link Japan happen to have this promotion that offer to international customers. The third campaign finally started on August 17th. Nope I didn't manage to get any damn single out of it. You see this happen when these customize parts ran out before they packed mine. Yes, disappointed to know. But what pissed me off HLJ actually already started offering on August 8th even the graphic logo listed the exact date and put up on 17th! What the fuck?
I really lost of words and find this very upset they kept this promotion quiet while making majority waiting and browsed for the news everyday wondering the third campaign going to happen or not. Not only it pissed me off and began to question why 17th? They said because it was traditional Obon holiday (three days) and the announcement was delay. I call that bullshit excuses and the fuck we subscribe newsletter service for? Traditional Obon holiday celebrate on August 15th (wiki) and will last for three days. So what happen during 10 to 14th then?
Let's be frank about this, we all can see global economic problem does indeed affect Gundam model kits sales and has been slow down this year including those new released lines. Not only that, P-Bandai exclusive are spoiling the market itself too. You will notice if you browse the pages every few days or easy way, type HGUC or HG in the search. The list of the new released and old Gunpla stocks numbers hardly running out of stocks even after the campaign ended.
My opinions on this, probably a marketing stunt to find way clearing high volume stocks stuck in their warehouse. You see, the past two campaigns last two to three weeks and I hardly able to choose which kits to buy as majority run out of stock. The third campaign, so much in stock kit's selection and closed only less than 5 days (17th to 21st). If the promotion originally started on 8th, either they found the sales were slow during that time and the remaining HG customize parts already given out almost dry since we are talking about three parts for each HG purchase. I myself would find this golden opportunity card push to clear the stocks and make sure the “This campaign is only good as long as our stock of packets lasts!” slogan were used to protect them from hot head customer like me. Smart move.
Of course, I may be wrong. This is just speculating and no prove at all of their wrong doing. Even if it happens what I wrote above, well, they got right to do that. Still, I find this case so rare they would stay quiet and delay announce this campaign for such respectable online shop with lots of loyal customers base. I never had any problem with them before but this is the first time making me so mad wasting my money purchasing from a campaign period (the day they open) that gets nothing in return. The way they handle this announcement just wrong and left me speechless. There won't be next time blindly rush to purchase like that. Thanks to that, I actually brought wrong Nemo version. Arggg!

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.
