Singapore is in South-East Asia sandwiched between Malaysia,Indonesia and probably the Philippines. The closest Caucasian country is Australia,in fact,many actually have stopovers in Singapore before going to the land down under. Singapore was occupied by the Japanese during World War II.During that time it was colonised by the British.Singapore suffered alot just like any other war victims.Speaking of which,there should be more female rulers,then this world would have everlasting peace!!!!
