First Look: Toy-Wave Online Shop

Toy-Wave is another alternative online shop to look for special release or limited Japanese toys from Hong Kong. They even have something you couldn’t possibly find again in other store today as well. However, all of these come at a high price even many normal items which I can conclude the marks up are around estimate more than 15-20%.

How do I know? It’s pretty easy if you read the company details (even look at the price on the website). They reveal a hint themselves that if you visit their shop in Hong Kong, you will entitle 10% off purchasing directly. Don’t you think this is sounds like telling us we should be paying another 10% extra charges to cover their losses selling through the website? Well, maybe I am wrong and probably mean a special discount for visitor and foreigner buyers. LOL!

The worst I discover is seeing those bundling figures or plastic kits from magazines like Dengeki Hobby and Hobby Japan are selling separately with at least two times the price. My advices to buyers should take cautiously when placing your order. It’s kinda funny there are buyers willing to folk out their money for it when you can actually buy from either iShop2go.com or Walter Hobby with much lower price.

Free VIP membership card is also available as it comes with 10% discount for all items. The condition is simple, you just have to purchase over USD$300.00 to be eligible receiving this offer. It’s up to you all if this worth it or not. To me, this is just a pointless offer to be spending my money on.

I haven’t made any single order yet but there are things I probably might want to get it next year. Just a reminder, the shipping forms they done on the website are very unfriendly for the new buyers. There are many options to choose from like what kind of shipping methods and packing you want base on your own budgets. Another issue is also the information’s they provide is very unclear, so it’s recommend you drop them a message to check for availability and if the bonus items are together with it because they probably might already sold it off separately.

It is not quite a recommended online shop from my personal interest. But from time to time, Toy-Wave does doing monthly offers and festival promotions. Right now, the Christmas promotion already started. Check it out!

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.
