Blog Action Day 2008 - Poverty

Wow, I can’t believe it was so fast. I didn’t have the time to prepare my post and I know it’s late, thanks to my recent car broke down and my late work stress me out. Anyway, it’s very hard me to explain what is poverty really like in real life. Watching TV and news doesn’t really help including imagine it because I never experience it before. However, I do hope one day poverty will disappeared in the world.


Poverty around the World

What is poverty exactly? I’m sure even kids who living in good life won’t even bother to understand these days as they will only learned from school like in Geography class or maybe watching Discovery channel. I’m one of them, you can’t blame me that I born in peaceful country.


There are many types of poverty can be found different category, I believe it’s a lot. The quality of life, foods, safe drinking waters, poor shelters and home mostly can be found in developing countries especially like Africa, Cambodia, North Korea and many others in South East Asia. Developed countries do have such issue on poverty like homeless and income problems related.


Of course, ongoing war also can be one of the worst to be listed in the categories. Let’s not forget that governments ruling and corruption is also another main biggest raise on poverty.


How hard is Preventing Poverty?

This is one of the toughest issues everybody around the world can’t solve today and can be impossible even in the future. Volunteering, donating money, clothes or foods are no longer the best solutions lower poverty problems. Let’s face it, world economies are dragging everyone down to foreclosures, bank loan and even increasing on jobless are facing hard time of their own thinking to survive next day.


Spending billions of dollars will never solve the problem and everything still goes back from the start over and over again. I’m sure people will eventually fed up on donating and even won’t bother about the poverty issue anymore because there are many can’t even take care themselves and how do they suppose to take care of other people facing poverty. You may disagree my way of thinking like that. Believe me. This is actually happening more and more soon.


How can we help and improve?

Other than just donating, I believe education is one of the important roles to help the children or next generations to improve and open their own way to better future. I also believe abandon traditional way of thinking can help to improve their life as they can seek for newer way and understanding the environment they are living today. How they themselves able to stop the ongoing war conflict, corruptions, politics and rules they believe is wrong. This is currently what I believe it should be done.

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.
