Singapore favour for merger with Malaysia because for common market and for independence.
Singapore lacked natural resources and faced a declining trade amount. More jobs were needed to meet the demands of the population. The Malayan government imposed import and export tariffs on goods traded between the 2 countries. Singapore also faced Communist threat and that made the British not grant full independence to Singapore. Singapore hence felt that by merging with Malaya, the British would grant Singapore full independence and Malaya would share natural resources and jobs. Trade amounts might also go back up and the tariffs could be removed.

Singapore has four official languages: English, Malay, Chinese (Mandarin), and Tamil. The national language of Singapore is Malay, although it is not spoken amongst most Singaporeans. The official languages are English (British), Mandarin Chinese and Tamil. English is the most commonly spoken language and is used as a common language amongst people of different races in Singapore, as Singapore's population is vastly multiracial.
Malay is the national language due to Singapore's history, when the natives were Malay, until the British came along and transformed the island into a port, attracting people form all around the world due to employment prospects. Majority of these immigrants were Chinese and a large number of Indians were present as well.
This formed the multiracial social landscape of modern day Singapore, and also raised the need of a common language for people to communicate so as to better prosper the nation. Having Mandarin Chinese and Tamil as official languages is to allow the Chinese and Indians to feel as if they have a place in Singapore, not as if they are being excluded. This is important as Chinese make up around 70% of the population and their dissatisfaction will greatly affect the nation.

i'd say English. non-Chinese people might not be able to speak in mandarin or other Chinese dialects, non-Indians might not speak Tamil or Hindi or other Indian dialects, non-malays might not be able to speak Malay since it's not compulsory for students to study the 'original' language of the island but practically everyone knows how to speak English to cross the cultural divide
The main language would be English with only a handful, mostly the older generation, that don't speak it. so if you can speak English, there should be no problem.

How are you in the 4 official languages of Singapore:
Tanglin was a densely wooded area until the 17th century when settlers began clearing the hills to make way for nutmeg, gambier and pepper plantations. In 1860, a 210 acre site in Tanglin, comprised mainly of a nutmeg plantation, was purchased by the colonial government, to provide housing for military troops. It was first established as barracks for the British Army in 1872. The buildings constructed for the military then, were large and airy, to give respite from the tropical elements while providing maximum ventilation. From 1934-6, much new construction took place within the camp grounds, and the barracks were fortified. Some of the buildings were torn down to make way for new concrete buildings, while modifications were made to others, thus preserving the square support columns and French-tiled roofs of the original buildings. The buildings of Tanglin Camp have previously housed various important military offices such as The Medical Classification Centre, Officers' Personnel Centre, Naval Training Department, SAF Careers Centre and the Central Manpower Base of the Singapore Armed Forces. Presently, the buildings at Tanglin Camp are decommissioned.

The Singapore government wants skilled foreigners to become PRs to help sustain their economy. As for what Aunty NG down the road thinks about foreigners, you'll have to ask her directly.

First there is politcal benefits. Singapore wants to be independent. 1963 federation of malaysia constitution, through merger in 1963 with an independent malaya, singapore achieved full independence from British. Before the merger, British is unwilling to grant singapore independence giving the excuse that singapore is not strong enough and have limited resources to be independet. For malaya, merger was a way to check rising threat of communism in Singapore which might result to a threaten to the safety of malaya. Malaya is very successful in handling communist problems, one example is The Emergency.
Secondly, there is economic benefits. Singapore has limited resources and by merging with malaysia, malaysia acts as a hinterland for singapore and provides singapore with the resource. Furthremore, singapore has a small market and by merging with malaysia, it increases size of market and hence benefit singapore economically. Malysia on the other hand also wants to be benfited by singapore since singapore has more than 2500 firmst and a population of 1.7millon and is the most important port in south east asia.
However, because of the merger, federak government's fear of PAP's domination in malaysia politics. The failure of Alliance leader in KL to enable the Malays in Singapore to gain more seats in the Singapore Legislative Assmebly during the 1963 elections caused the alliance leader to feel very bitter about the defeat. Tunku even came to singapore and expressed his disappointment,this resulted to tension and bitter relationship. Furthremore, singapore promised not to participate in federal elections but did not keep its promise. Lee Kuan Yew and others participated in the federal election, although they only won a few seats but malays felt threatened by Singapore. Moreover, malaysia keep emphasizing on Malay being a superior race but Singapore felt that everyone is equal. Hence, the fear of Chinese domination in Malysian politics was a dominant threat felt amongst malay leaders. There are many riots for example the Geylang gaswork riot on Prophet Muhamad's birthday which resulted in injuries and the damage of properties.
Singapore did not benefit as much in the common market because the Central government was not convinced to promote new industries in Singapore. When foreign industries want to set up industries in Singapore, the centre government always delay and disagree. Singapore also recieved very few certificats of pioneer status. Singapore leaders felt very frustrated to threatened to boycott british goods. Resulted to upsetting relationship. Tax charges to protect malaysian industry is very frustrating. Singapore's light bulb industries suffered because of the imposition of duty on imports of light bulbs just when light bulb factories are going to be set up and 50000 people are unable to get their jobs because of this.
