I have been fascinated by Singapore since I visited this city. Especially how they balance development with greenery. This blog by Shreejith is eveeverything I felt about the city. Brilliant city, Amazing blog.
Singapore, a tiny speck on the world map was an underdeveloped country back in 50s. This nation was also not blessed with any natural resources which could have been utilized for economic development.
