Description

How was Singapore sold to the British for 60,000 Spanish Dollars? Discover the man who did it, and the man who forced him to do it. No one remembers the sultans that used to rule, except us. The old Royal Palace, the Sultan Mosque, the Tombs of the Malayan Princes: they all carry an air of royalty snatched away too quickly.
