A quick stroll through history:
Pre-1819: Was known by a bevy of names: Temasek & Singapura among others. A small (thriving, some historian suspected) fishing outpost.
1819: Modern Singapore entered history. "Founded" by Sir Stamford Raffles on behalf of the British East India company. Purchase island from the Sultan of Johor.
Till 1942: British colony.
1942-1945: WW2. Annexed by the Japanese who renamed the island "Syonan-to".
1945-1959: British colony once again.
1959: Gained self-governance.
1963: Joined Malaya to form independent Malaysia.
1965: Booted out of Malaysia and independence forced upon.
Walk off the beaten path and see my country from other angles.
