Singapore Day 2 – PC Show 2008

I have to thank the Singaporean guys informing me about the event at VR-Zone forum. The event started on the first day of June 12th (until 15th) in Suntec City, which is the same day celebrating my Birthday. I got an Apple iPod Nano 8GB present from my sister-in-law. I can’t really believe I am going to own MP3 player for myself.

 

The trip from Simei to Suntec City took me at least 20 minutes to reach there. You will need to take the MRT to City Hall first about 10 minutes. Once you arrived there, you have to walk from the underground to Suntec City over there for another 10 minutes to reach there. It was quite a long walk. No worry, there are TONS of shops, cafes and restaurant on the underground. It just the matter of time how long you are going to spend there. Trouble really hit me that day. It was not a really a good idea bringing family and children to the PC Show. I can see my mom and sister-in-law so exhausted as they have to watch over my nephew. They keep on insist want to follow me even they are not interested on computers and gadgets stuffs. It was very quite painful unable to enjoy the event long.

 

 

After arriving there, you are probably going to expect lots of flyers going to be handed to you once enter to Suntec. The flyers I get almost like buying a car magazine and I was having quite a lot of hard time checking out the promotions. I did not think for second because I can see at least hundreds of people going in and out from the building very second grabbing and pulling their computer gadgets out from the PC Show. I thought I was in heaven of computer world.

 

Shopping Tips:

If you intend to go on Saturday and Sunday, you have to prepared yourself and expect huge holiday crowds. However the good thing is you can get a last minute better and lower promotions items last day of the PC Show. (Next PC Show 2009 will start from 11th to 14th June next year)

 

Before you go over there, make sure you check for more information about the preview promotions from the website first like Hardwarezone.com or VR-Zone forum.

 

Also once you received the flyers, check immediately which items you are going to plan to grab. Buying directly from the distributors also one of the best choice because you can get a very good purchase and free items from them.

 

Planning your budgets is very important and used cash instead of using credit cards. But my advice to you, try not to over spend. ^^;;

 

The most interesting news I also learned last week that the PC Show 2008, were able to attract to a close record number of 1.12 million visitors and generating $51.7 million in sales end on Sunday. You can Read more there. I was one of the million visitors over there and I was excited experience such a great events. I don’t even know what to buy at all. I was so confused and stunt by the entire promotion price over there. You can’t even get those crazy prices in Brunei at all, not even once forever. I said before in my previous post, Bitex is completely nothing comparing to PC Show and not to mentions 90% of those item are quality brand. 10% of those items are unknown China brand selling over there, which are same as our local PC shop currently selling it. I did not ask the warranty actually covers over there. But I’m not stupid enough getting those there. I would rather pour down my money on the proper quality brand and gets the official warranty instead.

 

Actually I was first at lost at 4th floor until I found out that I should gone to 6th floor instead. Anyway, I grab some photos when I was there. Check out the photos at my Google Picasa Album or the small 400x size slide show below.

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.
