So much complains from the chinese about foreigners yet they forgotten their roots, this video definitely make them reflect at themselves and stop acting like this country belongs to them. I definitely against alot of policies such as “mandarin speaking only candidates” etc!. Singapore wouldnt have been what it is without the difference in cultures and mixes.
Thank you for your time but you guys are under new management, we run things now.
Join the club, too many nippers in my country its been that way for years
Impressive Film.. learned so much! Thank you!
That may be true, but if the foreigners left (taking their investments with them), Singapore would be in trouble. Besides, if your Chinese you don’t really belong there either, do you?
Britain is where it is because of the riches of India and other former colonies. It works both ways.
The reference to the World War is the First World War (1914-1919). The Cenotaph was completed in 1922. The “stately Municipal Building, one of Singapore’s newest constructions”, was completed in 1929.

This film was not shot in the 30s for sure. WWII and Japanese occupation was in early 40s. It’s better for the uploader to edit the year of the film or it tarnishes the facts of such well-preserved video – smdragon Jan 14 2012 (Singapore)
The foreigners are the reason your country is where it is. Appreciate it.
Well yes. Perhaps I wasn’t that clear. British & commonwealth forces.
u meant the british forces in singapore…
