I Got An Idea Starting Company But Kinda Tricky...

Over the years of dreaming, I really wanted to start my own product and company. I see myself falling behind in the IT path and still seeking ways to switch. Back to study is no go, I truly don’t have the motivation focusing unless I am working projects and testing several systems. It just I can’t think of anything other than selling toys and computers these days in Brunei. People always told me if you are good at these, go for it.

The answer in my mind says ‘nope’. Many locals are already doing the same thing I am good at so why bother wasting time? This is the reason I need to seek something new and different. My mind is looking at creating and rectifies an existing product to be more useful in any environment. Things are not looking exactly simple.

Producing the Prototype

Making a prototype is not an issue anymore since there is one local company pops up in the newspaper headline last year offering 3D printing service. How well their 3D printer can do is later because I haven’t start designing and even sketching the idea yet. Even if I did prepare the designs, the probably most important thing must do is register intellectual property first to prevent getting stolen or copies. I have to remember we are now in digital era.

Are There Any Green Manufacturers in Brunei?

Finding the right manufactures to produce my idea prototype are tricky because I want it to be made with green technology and able to use recyclable material to reproduce again. Most importantly to be able to made in Brunei. Overseeing the progress, QC and made changes directly are much easier if you plan to cut the costs flying around.

I’m not really sure if there are any well-known local companies have this kind of manufacturing green technology machine available. My search shows up empty in the yellow book and web search. I may have to start searching from oversea…

Dealing with Intellectual Property (IP)

I don’t have any experience with the IP when it comes to registering. What we need to know Brunei is the member of ‘World Intellectual Property Organization’ (WIPO). But my main concern remain is how much do you really need to pay for to get protected? Some countries (like Australia, USA etc) IP law only stated cover at their own not including overseas. Does this mean we need to register the IP separately as well? This is where I am kind of stuck and needed to go through the information bit by bit more at BruIPO. Headache…

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.
