National Education in Sentosa
Once upon a time, there was a GREAT king called Utama. One day, he went hunting and chased a deer up a hill. From the top of the hill, he saw this GREAT island in the horizon. He immediately was intrigued by this land in the distance and he set sail to explore what this GREAT island had in store for him. He encountered great many hurdles (blah, blah details in the actual story) but he never gave up in his quest to reach this GREAT island. And when he finally got there, he saw a lion and thought that this creature was guarding this GREAT land and he decided to call this GREAT land Singapura.
First, why is it that the history of Singapore always begins with this Utama dude? Its almost like nobody (even the indigenous Orang Asli) lived here before that.
Second, as is obvious from above, the supposed greatness of Singapore was its destiny. Funny coz if Singapore was really meant to be great and successful even from the Utama times, maybe we could have achieved all this without you know who….
Third and most important, most of the tourists watching this fell asleep.
