Only 38 people live in this offshore island in Singapore. Who are they?

 

New York Times calls this 10.19 km² island ‘an oasis’ as nature overtakes the granite quarries that served the Singaporean construction industry since the mid-19th century.

Its one of the last rural areas in Singapore, popular with daytrippers, nature lovers, biking enthusiasts.

Its population has dwindled from 3,000 to 38 in last two decades. Who lives there today?
