Singapore Girl - An Example From The History Of Singapore
While it may seem a bit strange to compare our unique Singapore Girl perfume with the history of Singapore, the truth is that they share a lot of resemblances.
A Brief Overview Of The History of Singapore
As you probably already know, the history of the beautiful Singapore country began due to its special location. After all, it is on the major route between India and China. So, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles granted Singapore a free-trade harbor status.
Back in 1818, Lord Hastings – the British Governor-General of India – appointed Lieutenant General Sir Stamford Raffles to establish a trading station at the southern tip of the Malay peninsula. At this point, the British were extending their dominion over India as well as they were also expanding their trade with China. So, aport along the way was perfect refit, revitalize, and protect their merchant fleet. Besides, this was also a good way to prevent the advances made by the Dutch.
Eventually, Singapore became one of the most important commercial and military centers of the British Empire. However, during World War II, Japanese forces conquered Singapore to the British forces.
As it is normal, in the aftermath of the war, the country faced staggering problems of high unemployment, slow economic growth, inadequate housing, decaying infrastructure, labor strikes, and social unrest.
In 1959, Singapore became a self-governing state within the British Empire. Before joining the Federation of Malaysia along with Malaya, Sabah, and Sarawak, Singapore declared independence from Britain unilaterally in August 1963. Two years later in 1965, Singapore left the Federation of Malaysia after heated ideological conflicts arose between the Singapore government’s major political party called the People’s Action Party (PAP) and the federal Kuala Lumpur government. On 9 August 1965, Singapore officially gained sovereignty.
