E is for Edge
The person(s) who built these huts on an islet must love living on the edge. This is one of the islets facing an open sea, the Sulu Sea, and the huts are made of light materials like bamboo and nipa. Clearly, these huts are perched on precarious ground, and at the mercy of the elements. I was somehow relieved when the boatman told us that nobody lives here full-time because there was no fresh water. Fishermen use these huts as a rest-stop where they cook and eat their meals, sleep and take refuge during a rain storm. I couldn't help thinking what a storm surge or an earthquake would do to this islet. A 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit this area on Monday last week, and I hope this islet didn't disappear after the earthquake.
