I thought this was a work of genius. I’d love to see someone attempt this for Singapore history.

Can you imagine?

Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles and the Temenggong are now friends.

Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles starts a Town Plan page.

Incidentally, it’s Raffles’ birthday tomorrow and his death anniversary today. I don’t know why I remember such things. This particular fact has been ingrained in my memory since a Primary Four Social Studies project on Raffles some 20+ years ago… It just goes to show you that the brain can remember the most random bits of information.
