Agunnay and his nephew at home in Mabul island, Malaysia. Agunnay has 5 sons and two daughters. It took two days for him to build the hut when they came here from Philippines and decided to settle.
Agunnay not only built a small house for his family, but even got a wrist watch, to look like a more modern man. “I have the watch, but I don’t know the numbers. So if I need to know the time, I go to my neighbours, show my watch and ask what the time is”.
