On this day 195 years ago, Sir Stamford Raffles signed a treaty recognising Sultan Hussein as the rightful Sultan of Johre in exchange for Singapore and modern Singapore was born, out of English commericial wit and cunning no less. (Explains why we Singaporeans are so clever in legal matters, we learnt from the best! 😀 )
Happy Colony Day Singapore!
(And I wil go berserk if anyone brings up that stupid city under the Malaccan sultanate before Raffles came. The Portuguese burnt it down to the ground! Forget it man!)
