Estimated population of Singapore
citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.
Other ethnic groups 1.4%
Working Language: English
Other official languages: Mandarin,
Malay & Tamil.
Planners expect the
population of Singapore to reach 5.5 million by 2040 or 2050, taking
into account an expected increase in the number of foreigners working
here. From just 3 million in 1990, the number has swelled to 3.9 million
today, including 700,000 foreigners.
A high-level working
committee is now looking at ways to encourage more couples to have
babies. Demographer Saw Swee Hock says that if the fertility rate
continues to stay below two, the population here, minus the foreigners,
will peak at about 3.3 million in 2025 and then begin to drop.
Singapore's water is
clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

Monday with the Editor: World War 2
It's been 55
years since World War 2 ended. A generation of soldiers
and civilians who fought or grew up in that traumatic era has
grown old. These survivors of that horrendous war are now in
their seventies or even older.
It's been a
blessing that these people have come so far, and are still
around to help us remember the past - a past which I hope my
generation (I was born after the war) - as well as future
generations of people, will never get to live through at all.
All those who
have lived through that harsh reality, no doubt, have plenty to
tell us. Time is not on their side, for no matter what manner of
man they are, they will still leave this world, just as we will,
in time to come. Many of the war survivors have written books on
their experiences. A great many are still writing.
Some of the
writers have e-mailed getforme.com seeking information on World
War 2. We have tried our level best to accommodate their
requests, and in doing so, we have also picked up a little of
the history of Singapore during World War 2. But we feel we
ought to do more. Therefore, we have started an e-mail group for
all like-minded people - who are interested in the happenings of
World War 2 - to mingle and share information.
veterans owe it to posterity to leave behind their legacy - our
children and their children need to know what happened during
World War 2. And the future generations need to understand that
mankind must never go through such a calamity again, for in war
there is no winner - everyone suffers whether immediately or
We hope the
war veterans, as well as those who lived through that period,
will come in and pen whatever thrills their minds. We hope they
will leave a part of themselves in our logs, for the benefit of
future visitors to this website. War veterans, I repeat - you
owe it to posterity to leave behind a record of World War 2, as
seen through your eyes.

e-mail group, click SingaporeWW2.
