Happy 51st Birthday!

In a world of uncertainly just shy more than 50 years ago, a little nation was born.

Singapore_240-animated-flag-gifsLike many former colonies of western powers, the newly independent small state was vulnerable. Having not hinterland, the tiny island of barely 700km² has grown and indeed morphed into one of the world’s better known cities. Not quite London, Tokyo or New York, but close enough.

This reminds us though of the sharing we were due to bring to this blog on the sights and sounds of Singapore’s lesser known wonders. So much journeying recently that this has been neglected! Sorry…

Through good times and bad times, the little red dot has preservered against all odds. Mel and Suan are beneficiaries of this phenomenal rise of an otherwise backwater should fortune had taken a different course. Today we celebrate by being at home watching the national day parade, passive folks who do not seem to be outwardly patriotic.

But you will know that whenever and wherever we place our handprint, surely the little red and white flag is planted too. Read more about our Singapore page, google up the web about this little island. Find out why we have become what we are, and more imporantly – the arduous journey it took.

Author: Mel & Suan

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!
