Borderland is a land of complexity. Before the establishment and expansion of the British North Borneo Company in the late 19th century, the Tawau District was under the influence of sultanates in the region, i.e., Brunei, Sulu, and Bulungan in Kalimantan. In a map published by the British North Borneo Company in 1888, the territory under its control covered the entire Sebatik Island as well as Nunukan Island. The land borders were later fine-tuned several times after the Anglo-Dutch treaty was signed in 1891, with Sebatik Island politically dissected into two parts and Nunukan Island transferred to Kalimantan. This had changed the fate of the local people for generations, as the territorial arrangement was subsequently adopted by Malaysia and Indonesia after gaining independence from the colonists.

With the pandemic engulfing the globe, there is seemingly no escape for the Malaysian business community and everyone who depends on the economy — practically every Malaysian — from the consequences of frequent lockdowns, reduced demand for goods and services, business closures and the resultant unemployment except for some fortunate sectors that have benefitted from the opportunities that this unusual time has offered.
