Singapore is not a part of Malaysia

At least “not since 1965”!

Recently a metblog singapore reader and friend of mine pointed out something which has been eating at me for a while as well. He asked me, “if it’s ‘melbourne, australia’ on the Metblogs Melbourne header, shouldn’t it be ‘singapore, singapore’ on ours?”

Of course if you looked at the Metblogs Kuala Lumpur site, it does say “Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia”. It seems to follow a city, country format. However, being one of 3 modern city states in the world, shouldn’t we be SIngapore, Singapore?

We’re not a part of Malaysia, not since 1965! And for those who are wondering, we’re not a part of China either.
