Money Control Year

Well, definitely not a good year for almost everyone. Brunei oil and gas business hit even hard harder every month and price of the foods rise at grocery stores. Trying to fight hard on saving and made a good decision not to travel. Fuck I missed Japan trip!

Nobody knows when you might be next jobless victim. So better regret the fun at the moment and start having backup money in the bank are best option. Despite working a lot of effort putting money into the saving every months and less spending on toys. Both August and September took almost half just from car servicing. Damn, always these two months every year. I definitely got stress out pretty bad by it.

My mom especially is freaking stubborn and sometimes deserved some scolding to wake her up. The worst one was trying to force my nephew gave up his SG50 Lego set by giving to me. I am seriously loss of words finding out and really put me in a bad position as an uncle who only want to know if his school can made any purchase. It is unimaginable my mother would do such a thing. She just lucky my brother didn't find out about this.

Another issue is she just can't stop talking about how I missed my trip to Japan. I'm not sure if she already old or probably just stays too long in Singapore without realizing our situation in Brunei now. I just avoid her and walk off when she starts repeating the shits. Although its rude to your own mother, it has to be done from time to time avoiding family quarrels. I already had my goal in mind getting a house. Misses my travel or not, doesn't matter anymore when you got no roof of your own.

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.
