Why we should be proud of Singapore 1

If you think Singapore's Straits Times and other newspapers are too fawning, you should read other countries' newspapers once in a while. This photo is from the front page of Brunei's Borneo Bulletin, 10 May 2006. The caption says,

"His Royal Highness Prince Hj Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Deputy Inspector-General of Police, yesterday made a courtesy call on Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong."

What a mouthful. Did you have a hard time even parsing that sentence?
