I am a stay-at-home mom with 2 young children, and currently homeschooling my eldest (preschooler).
I am an Indonesian married to a Malaysian, and we live in Brunei as music teachers.
I run a few children music classes at home on weekends, and we also receive paid guests in our 2 guestrooms thru other site.
Brunei has not much to offerr in regards of tourism compared to other countries in SouthEastAsia.. many travellers found this country a bit boring, lodging is expensive and public transports are inconvenient.
But this place surely good for taking a short rest from your busy travels, especially we live in a quiet housing area with greeneries around.
My family is early risers and early sleepers too..
We'd love to bring you around in the evenings to see some landmarks like mosques, parks, and night market, simply bcoz my husband would bring my eldest to drive around every evenings (remember, petrol is cheap here!).
We offer 4 nights of free stay (MUST include thursday&friday nights) in exchange of helping me doing some deep cleaning around the house, some gardening, babysit while im teaching, and 30mt a day reading aloud/story telling to my eldest.
You must be a native English with a good accent to be eligible for this offer. Singles or couples are welcome. Non-smokers only.
