MY SECRET LIFE IN BRUNEI DARUSSALAM By John Robert Ramos No other Filipino expat has ever stumbled upon an extraordinary life in Brunei in a short period of 18 months of staying but me. True stories of my odd acquaintances with diverse individuals in relation to work, lifestyle, nightlife, street life, love life, sex life even the life of other overseas worker and local people that I knew. The locals may never realize their own country the same way again after reading my story. The current Filipino overseas workers in Brunei might ask themselves how they could never heard of it. And ordinary readers will be astonished of what oddity can happen when you’re young, alone and fearless in Brunei Darussalam.
