Most people here in Brunei do speak English at some level, but many of them not so much or not very good. They are still keen to chitchat though all the time, everybody from the pizza delivery man to the post office employees - with the result of very funny conversations from time to time.
The other day I went to have my hair done for a party, together with a couple of friends (who shall remain unnamed...), and the girls in the salon asked one of my friends (who is the same age as me) if I was her daughter...
Let's just say it made my day.
Not so much hers.
Just making conversation.
