Mel

Founder


What can I share about myself? I've been many things - a lawyer, a marketer, a traveler, a procrastinator, a TV binger, a wife - but where I have really felt my calling has been as a mother. After living outside of Brunei for several years, I returned to Brunei in 2016 to give birth to my daughter and grow my little family. I found that, while there were a lot of resources available in Brunei for parents and expecting parents, finding the information on what was out there was missing. This is how BabyBrunei was born. To read more about the birth of BabyBrunei, check out my blog post.
