CNY 2011 – Celebration Day 1

Not much happy things or visiting going on for me. My new car didn’t even manage to arrived on time so I just take the holiday as an opportunity to rest and tried to do something fun (actually boring) even thinking about spending time building Gunpla. Well, it didn’t work out. However, it doesn’t I don’t have any activities.

First day of Chinese New Year, I was there in the Chinese temple in KB to celebrate the countdown. Of course I’m not alone. Luckily my friends were there to take photos so I joined in the fun. This year is a bit different compare to the past celebrations. The Chinese community and the organizers decided to throw in lots of fireworks, and then lion dance for the opening including the extra for some local singing live on the stage.
 
Everyone and the foreigners are expecting going to be lots of entertainments there for the first time. But it always just didn’t turn out the idea we are expecting. The events were called to halt after 2.00AM by the young police officer from BSB even the KB and the panaga head officer can’t do anything about it. There are already one month approvals but that is not enough because the organizers did not apply for road traffic control and got complains of road blockage. If they don’t complied, the officer will issue raid in the events.

I have to admit the crowds did actually cause the whole road jam up and the ambulance having a hard time passing through. Worst those suckers didn’t even bother to give way especially the cars parked in the middle. This is the mistake the organizers never take note or learn from the previous year’s lessons. It’s sad to see this event end like that so I hope next year they plan better and communications with the police officer in BSB.
 
Anyway, the event was ended at 2.45AM as far I remember and full of fireworks smell all over me. Damn those organizer workers putting the fireworks so near to the entrance during the countdown. Everyone first thought they were going to put up on the top. That was not the case after we realized them going to light up in front of us. No safety at all and check the surrounding if there are any children before lighting up the fireworks. Luckily no injuries among the crowds, all else there won’t be any event anymore next year I guarantee.

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.
