Get a Smart Pass now


Sometimes you will have to experience something that will opened up eyes and help others along the way. This is what Aaron Sitai, owner of GadgetPlus Store, shared during his bad experience when he was victim of car theft a few years back. This is pretty common in Brunei where you just simply leave your car unattended when you leave your engine on and take for granted that no one will enter your car. Unfortunately things may not be as peaceful as you think it is.

So walaa….. in come the idea of Smart Pass where it kinda solves the issue of security even while leaving your engine running. The Smart Pass and KeyFree Touch are pretty handy and now thanks to Aaron, these Korean made products are made available in Brunei.

So how does it work? Simple actually.. It’s like a RFID tag and just place the Smart Pass on the censor from your screen of the car and your doors will be unlocked or locked for that matter. If you want to know more about the Smart Pass, you can go down to the Indoor Stadium and check out the demo for both the Smart Pass KeyFree and also the KeyFree Touch. The Fair will be ongoing at the Indoor Stadium from 10am to 10pm until 1st January 2013.

Movie reviews


Jack Reacher. Such an untimely movie especially after the Sandy Town shooting and those who have watched Jack Reacher would have known what I’m talking about. Tom Cruise still has what it takes to be an action hero. Though I have to say the opening scene may be a bit disturbing for some due to the graphic violent nature. The plot may be a bit unrealistic but I don’t mind giving this an excuse and enjoy this entertaining popcorn action movie. Perhaps the style of execution was the biggest draw for me in Jack Reacher. I won’t be surprised if there will be a sequel for this. It didn’t open that well in the box office but I still find it as an entertaining thriller. Not all of you will have the same views as I do. The movie also has some good sense of humour to make the thriller in a lesser serious mode. Verdict: 8/10.

Chinese Zodiac 2012. As the Miz of WWE would say, “Really?… Really??” I’ve been catching most of Jackie Chan movies and they have been mediocre as of late. The only that stands out for the past three years was The Karate Kid and if you count his voice as the Monkey in Kungfu Panda movies. CZ 2012 was simply terrible almost 3/4 of the movie. There are so many talking points here that I don’t know where to begin. I think for sure is the unnecessary switching off language from French, Mandarin and English. And who the hell is that French woman who was perhaps the Jar-Jar Binks in the movie – totally annoying.

The plot was far, far thin and normally I would say leave your brains at home for some movies. For this, even if you leave your brains home, you will still find this movie ridiculously absurd. I didn’t even know that the duration of the movie was pretty long (2hr 20 mins). Jackie Chan, your time is up!!! If this was your last movie (Expendables 3 aside), please please make it the last. Your stunts were truly amazing in CZ 2012 but it’s not even good enough to save this movie let alone the short cameos by the other celebrities towards the end of the movie. You have to ask yourself, what’s your intention of making this movie? Verdict: 5/10.
