I am a stay-at-home mom with 3 young children (4,2,baby), and currently homeschooling my eldest.
I am an Indonesian married to a Malaysian, and we live in Brunei as music teachers and we also host in an online rental site.
Brunei has not much to offer 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.. especially with a baby at home, our days end pretty early..
free accommodation and breakfast for max 5nights are given in exchange of helping me doing some deep cleaning around the house (3 toilets and kitchen area), some gardening occasionally, play and read books (either in english or chinese) for 2hours daily.
You must be a native English or Chinese with a good accent to be eligible for this offer. Singles or couples are welcome. Non-smokers only.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
