Visa Card Just Got Block - Update

Apparently, it was Hobby Search mistake causing confusion on my HSBC credit card transaction. I just received the information that my item was shipped out while ago and after checking the amount. It was 2,116 Yen that was mention by the operator and damn, because of their system made a big mistake on my order. I told the HSBC guy that was not the order I made yesterday because the amount is more than 2,000 yen. This got me into a mess and now my Visa card has to be ban and require replacing for a new one. Geezzz!

God damn it, Hobby Search. Now I have to wait for their response on their ordering system mistake and also either going to HSBC bank or wait for their call if it possible to lift my Visa card ban. Argg…

Man, just now, I thought who is calling my hand phone when seeing the unknown number. Didn’t expect that was HSBC operator (whom I thought is the kidnapper) and inform me that there are unauthorized transactions charges made from Japan. I have no idea who was that company and I can’t get clear information about the person trying to charge me because the operator act like a deep shit talking to me.

When I try to confirm and asked him to check the amount, it doesn’t add up. In the end, I have to get my card ban from using it and require replacing it in the nearby bank. Fuck, I have two more upcoming pending payments and it suddenly come to this. This is not good!


  1. Hahahaha.... my advise;

    1- When u report such problem to HSBC, try to be careful about the way you make the report... try avoid saying such thing as "that is not my order or my transaction" as the bank view this as a real serious matter (credit card fraud is a popular crime) and thus they immediately block your card and you get all the trouble to get a new card again. If you tell them that the seller charge wrongly and they will make adjustment or something like that then maybe that can save you the trouble from getting a new card. I worked in the bank's credit card division last time so I know how it works back there. Honestly if its me, I will just keep quite first as it is good then if Hobby Search charge lower than they suppose to do and you still end up getting all your items accordingly. Though honestly I don't really know the real fact about your problem here so my opinion could be totally wrong.

    2- Maybe you can consider to switch to StandChart Bank, they are pretty nice and understanding with online transaction and you don't have to carry that small black gadget that HSBC give u.

    3- Hobby Search shipping charges is always slightly higher than HLJ.... in fact they use same style with AmiAmi but at least AmiAmi give great discount. So shop more with HLJ coz for sure HLJ never make such stupid mistake. Hahahaha...

    Cheers man... hope you can solve this issue ASAP and in the best way possible.

    And as for your question about the sword stand, this is my answer;

    Starboykb, u go to Gadong, in front of Center Point Hotel, on the corner have Ayamku restaurant on the normal shop lots building... this shop with no name is just next to that Ayamku.

    It's something like a gift shop but also have cheap toys inside.

    They also have plenty of Tamiya car model kits selling at half price now (about below $20 after discount)

    Too bad they only accept cash... no credit card machine at the moment :(

    Cheers and good luck...

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.
