No Cash No House in Brunei

It is good news for us PR resident able to buy house and apartment for 90 years or less now in Brunei. But if you are just average income employees, we have two problems to face. Since, our country is not same as other countries offer better housing because of the small land and also applying national housing is impossible if you are not holding yellow IC. The alternative is tried look for apartments or finished built housing.

Thanks to my lovely father, giving everything away to the second wife and ended up paying rental in our own father house. I have been trying finding a affordable for housing to loan so it will be easier to invest rather continue giving the hard earn money away to step mother for free.

Finding is easy, when it comes to money, we totally have none. It comes to my attention the owners and contractors are interested more on cash rather than allow paying in bank loan these days. It was a nightmare even an apartments owners heading the same direction. Of course, some of them do in the end offering bank loan without my knowing. Things weren’t goes so well for us either.

Even if I got house, I got to worry about bank loan because rule is not friendly as it used to be. From what I heard from friends, they require you working with Governments sectors, school or Shell. Otherwise the loan can’t be approved. I haven’t drop by HSBC to enquiries about the housing bank loan yet so my information may not be true. But for those who got the national housing, they also need two guarantors. I’m not sure about us.

The previous land my mother got from Government is gone now because those lands given are belonging to Shell for drilling location. We have no idea what’s the story and I have to follow up myself after getting the documents.

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.
