This little Malaysian Isle has more birds than humans calling it home, but at any moment now, it would turn into a potential flashpoint in a regional power grab. According to the navy guys we spoke to, this remote outpost -located 175 nautical miles from Labuan in the waters of Malaysian shores - has many 'visitors' but they come mostly in their submarines. (Chinese & the US Navy were the regulars).
Thus it comes as no surprise that some of the daily routines for Malaysian sailors stationed in Pulau Layang-Layang involve training their cannons out to the sea. Frame this picturesque island in your mind now before it disappears in a big ball of fire.
