Headhunting in Brunei? Nah…

There are a lot of speculating and brought up again from the past about headhunting news. Since the day I was born until parent divorce. I have been wandering around the KB town with my bike for 10 years at night and when started working until mid-night never get chase once. So what’s the deal with the rumors?

Take it as bullshit or whatever you wanted to call it but me going to be straight to the point. There is NO headhunting in Brunei. It was never ever happen and any photo surface showing single proofs a head in the bridge or currently in the construction. Many of my cousins and relatives are living in area far from the police stations since they were born and the easiest target. I never heard single news of their death, getting chase or words worrying their head cut off at home surround by forest. Government covers up? No such thing that this is small country can hide many things from us people.

Even if there are head hunters in Brunei, they are going to be end up dead. Why? Cars are affordable in here right now and half of us willing to call the police first before chasing them and ram the suckers to death, take it as accident. However this won’t be easy day for the local Iban because they are cultural link to it so the police will definitely start from there.

Let me explain Headhunting was part of the tradition and ritual by Dayak tribes. Apparently Iban was known as Sea Dayaks people who once practice it in previous generation. I’m sure many of you find it hard to believe. It’s true and even recorded participates in World War II beheading many Japanese army.

Brunei is now living in modern day so I don’t really believe our local Iban would practice such reckless culture and went off becoming head hunters. Unless they were crazy thinking they would become immortal. The only recorded last event is in Kalimantan 2001 because of rioting and religious conflicts. Brunei doesn’t have any so stop worrying getting your head cut off.

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.
