About Singapore

Singapore is an island nation located on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It was founded back in 1819 by Sir Stamford Raffles and became a British Colonial possession. It only gained self governance in 1959, and thereafter independence in 1965. The Malays are the original natives of the island, but with the arrival of the British, people from various parts of the world made their way to this tiny island - the Indians from the Indian sub-continent, the Chinese from (mainly) China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Malaya/Malaysia. With the passage of more than 40 years, many of its migrant population have settled and become natives of this island, whether Malays, Chinese, Indians or of mix races, such as the Eurasians.

I am a first generation native Singaporean, born and bred. And this is about my life and times in Singapore.
