50 years on…

A few weeks back, my Web Graphics group ‘Team Alpha’ created a tourism website as part of our first-year final project. One of the photos we featured was that of a mural with a figure of Sir Stamford Raffles overlooking Fort Canning. In our history books, he was well-known as one of the early founders of Singapore. *coughs* Though I feel we give him too much credit for work that he didn’t do himself like William Farquhar *coughs*.

From then on, Singapore progressed through colonial rule, World War II, a merger with Malaysia and separation. This year, we’ll be entering our 50th year of independence. Neat.

Let’s keep up the good work.
