“Hey check this out, look how many shares it has reached”
I think I must’ve sent this to the co-writer of Brublahblah (BBB) when our post “Things People Say When They Hear You’re From Brunei” was shared (1700++ shares) beyond expectation. The comments and shares came flooding in.
In 2014, I started the website BBB with a local ThoughtCatalog (TC) writer. I found it amazing that a local writer could reach such a broad audience, their writings have reached thousands on TC to an international audience. I wondered whether it could actually work in a local context.

Jamit anak Lasah remembers coming to Teraja when he was only a little boy. His father had brought him along with his other family members as well as friends from Marudi in Sarawak.
As Jamit tried to recall all that happened during the migration, he paused for awhile and sat still. His hooded eyes appeared to be looking into space but it was evident they were looking at scenes of his past, that were replaying in his mind.
