Avoid Using Sensitive Words

I never like to be a racist person in life. Although I am an Atheist, also very straightforward person who can talks many different subjects that are very sensitivity issues. I always try to keep the rude words away and very careful what I am talking when other races were just beside you. Of course, unless they don’t really mind so that’s different stories. But to me, it won’t happen, because every 98% races are going to be very curious what subjects are you really into that make them think you are racists.

Probably most of you already know that when it comes to racisms, Malaysia is the most in trouble because of the political issues. I am not too worried about Brunei. We all know that it won’t be happening because even if there are, it just going to be estimate 1-3% only. It’s a small numbers and won’t affect our relationship between Chinese and Malay.

Today, we just happen chatting about the situation in Malaysia between the Chinese and Malay. The only people who can give us the slight ideas and answers are those come from there. No, please be reminding that there is NO racist subject involved. It just that the words Malaysian-Chinese’s uses are way very sensitive and too open in their discussion causing misunderstanding. I was totally freak out sitting with them when the local Malays were just beside us and start glance at us. Yes, they were unhappy and quite pissed off.

I am so damn worried about their misunderstanding because one of my friends kept using ‘Halal’ and ‘Melayu’ words in the subject too often in our mandarin conversations. Luckily I was able to put it to stop continuing using those words but they simply think it’s normal. I don’t know how Malaysian-Chinese discusses these topics in Malaysia. To me, it just too risky for them so straight forward in Brunei and it’s bad if anything goes wrong.

Again, nothing racisms subject involved, we are simply just asking what happen when Chinese going to Malay shops and restaurants in Malaysia and how they would feel. Well, only two states I can gather so far. According to them, Malay in Sarawak is one of the friendliest with other races. But not in Sabah from what I heard, because they dislike Chinese very much and don’t serve them. I don’t know if that are true, since I never been to these two states before in my life so can’t gave exact answers to this subjects.

But anyhow, I do not have the power to stop people being racists or too open minded in their discussions. When you chat about any sensitivity subjects in coffee shops or restaurant, my advise always avoid using those words that others understand it sitting beside you even you are trying to be racists. It may not be good ideas but it’s better than getting involved into fights for misunderstanding forever.

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.
