1965 Singapore separated from the Federation of Malaysia, which it had joined three years earlier, and became an independent Republic on August 9. On a televised press conference, Mr Lee Kuan Yew was visibly upset by the failure of the merger, which he believed was Singapore’s hope for survival apart from the British empire.

Logically speaking, Elle could be living a life like yours right now if she didn't get married and have a baby. And logically speaking, if you got married and had a baby, you could be living a life like Elle's.
So what was it like for a 20-year-old to be on the other side?

It's Chinese New Year again and this year is the year of the pig! So what does Chinese New Year mean to you? Youth.SG wanted to find out so badly that we ambushed ourselves on Orchard Road and asked random strangers about it. We're not satisfied with just interviewing our Chinese friends... We need to know what our friends from the other races feel about the Chinese New Year as well.

the real drama came after the fireworks ended. there were thousands of people crowded on the road facing the singapore river. so naturally nobody could see past the people they were surrounded by. imagine the dismay people felt when they discovered they couldn’t go beyond the strategically placed barricade that was right smack in the middle of the road, dividing the crowd into two camps. one who wanted to go back to the esplanade area, one who wanted to go towards the raffles place area.
