Demerit Points System Trial Start on May in KB

DPS (Demerit Points System) trial announced coming on May this year for Belait district. No one knows where they plan to installed this hardware's at. But you guys better start learning driving slowly not exceeding speed limit. There aren't any single bonus 1 or 2 KM/H so this is a bit challenging for most of our behaviors changes especially without cruise control support in some older cars.

I get this information from the officers when they hand out the handbook during the safety check last two weeks ago in Anduki industrial area. I spend some times reading it and did find some questionable rules that doesn't make sense to me. For example, crossing lines and other markings on carriageways are stated as offense. Now, when our roads conditions in Brunei never well maintains, fuckup and holes around that would put us in danger. We have to force to cross the lines to avoid self accident. Are we going to get offense ticket or minus DP?

Another one, failure to stop when accident occurs. It didn't explain clearly in what scenario, it is when accident occur after the drivers hit another cars or we see other drivers' cars accident when passing by? If there are already people render assistance those people in car accident. Do we need to get down as well to help? If yes, aren't it going to cause major traffic jam when more and more drivers get down busybody checking out?

Meh, there are many unexplainable scenario that would occur every day. If those police or officers simply rate the drivers' offenses without proper evidence or even understand what's going on. I grantee locals are going to pissed off and burn down that system. We will see how it goes.

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.
