Besieged By Storms, Awash With Memories

Panneer and his brother Jayaram were among the last residents remaining in Pulau Ubin.

It’s 2050, and the island’s residents were evacuating at the threat of rising sea levels and an impending monsoon storm.

But evacuating was out of the question for them. They were born and bred in Pulau Ubin, and like their father, they lived off the sea.  It was their home.

Soon after turning away friendly advice at the door, a devastating storm raged and ripped through their neighbourhood.

Not all was lost.
