Singapore is the only country in the history of the modern world to gain independence against its own will.

On Aug 7, 1965, the two prime ministers met. Singapore was told to leave Malaysia immediately. Lee Kuan Yew, Dr Toh Chin Chye and S Rajaratnam tried unsuccessfully to persuade the Tunku to change his decision.

The Tunku, saw the situation as hopeless -- as soon as one issue was resolved, another cropped up. After much thought, the Tunku was convinced that separation was the only way to settle their differences without bloodshed.

On Aug 9, 1965, Tunku Abdul Rahman issued a proclamation that Singapore would cease to be a part of Malaysia and would become independent and separate.

The Wonder of Pictures



Arul the purchase of your lens gave me motivation to go back to the top of the hill. This time with my camera. I know you like those micro shots. Landscape has always been what I like as it is ever so inspiring. I look forward to seeing what you bring back from NZ. Have to practice more before I will invest in more lenses. Can see you already testing the new toy la. Great shots.
