On the March 23, 2015, Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew was announced to have passed away at the ripe old age of 91. His demise made international news, with world leaders like US President Barack Obama mourning the Lee’s death.  

2. The Haze

Singapore, being situated in Southeast Asia, has been affected by long periods of haze caused by forest fires started in Indonesia. The capital-H Haze was so bad that some of the events at FINA Swimming World Cup held in Singapore were cancelled, due to health threats imposed by rising PSI levels.

3. Singapore GE 2015

Held once every four years, Singapore’s General Elections this year — the country’s 17th — has been an increasingly closely-watched affair for of-age citizens.

4. The SEA Games


Short for the Southeast Asian Games, the 28th SEA Games was hosted in Singapore this June 5 to 6. The last time Singapore hosted the SEA Games was in 1993, a good 22 years ago.

5. SG50
