New Syariah Law Create Fear

As an Atheist, I wish this is not happening and sadden by it. The introduction of the new Syariah law really cause a lot of criticisms to the country every time it hit the local news. The latest articles “Wearing indecent clothing is crime under Syariah law” already become the laughing topic of all time and the arguments are still ongoing.

I got to say the majority of the locals who are Muslim does make a good points regards of this matter. Even myself also agree Brunei are simply moving backward. Everyone understand that maintaining tradition is important task making sure the new generation won't forget the old cultures. However, our tourism are poor, less developed and now the raise of unemployment’s, even worst, crimes. Such ongoing problem becomes low priority instead. It was really stupid seeing them pouring all the unnecessary resources getting Syariah law out on April this year.

The legal officials assure us that Syariah law will not affect non-Muslim and will follow same legal system during last year citizenship induction. Now they are saying non-Muslim can be prosecuted. They did mention only unless involve with Muslim. In what manners are still left unquestioned and causing more worried. Why?

“Testimony must be from at least two witnesses, and preferably free Muslim male witnesses, who are not related parties and who are of sound mind and reliable character; testimony to establish the crime of adultery, or zina must be from four direct witnesses. Forensic evidence (i.e., fingerprints, ballistics, blood samples, DNA etc.) and other circumstantial evidence is likewise rejected in hudud cases in favor of eyewitnesses, a practice which can cause severe difficulties for women plaintiffs in rape cases.” @Wikipedia

Forensic and circumstantial evidence can be rejected in favor of eyewitnesses are definitely bullshit. Don't forget, CCTV footage too were mention recently. How can we allow trusting the eyewitnesses alone without support from the forensic finding in the court? How do we even know the eyewitnesses are not related to the parties? What if the eyewitnesses are racists? This is what everyone fears the most and how the courts going handle the cases.

Of course, I do understand why HM would resort bringing Syariah law. Let's face it, Brunei no longer consider peaceful as describe. You know, I know, people took advantage doing silly things (e.g. Government job scam, remember?) and we forget our surrounding safety. The numbers of crimes are increasing and that is the facts.

No matter what, I still don't agree going such extend taken against the Muslim. Some may like it but majority (be honest) doesn't. My most concern are hoping for the news of the citizenship status because I heard serious shit and am fucking pissed learning from someone behind it. For now, we just have to wait for the upcoming HM announcement speech on the national day.

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.
