You first? Nope, its me!

Singapore is a Southeast Asian Sovereign city state of the Southern tip of the Malaysia Peninsula. Historically, Singapore has been
  • Part of the Johor Sultanate in 1613 but sank into obscurity after Portuguese raiders burnt it down
  • Founded by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819 and became one of the British Straits Settlements in 1824
  • Conquered by Imperial Japanese Army between February 1942 to September 1945
  • Gained independence from United Kingdom and joined up with Federation of Malaya in 1962
  • Left Malaysia and declared independence in 1965

Given the short history of Singapore, it is also interesting to know that Singapore has scored many first and top rankings
  • World first Night Zoo
  • Largest fountain in the world
  • First Youth Olympics in the world
  • First Formula One Night race in the world
  • Easiest place to do Business in the world
  • Best Airport in the World
  • Best Intellectual property Protection
  • First in the world to use “Tissue Paper” to “chope” seats in food courts and hawker centres
  • First species of Lion-mermaid to be seen
  • First country in the world to ban chewing gum
  • First country in the world to put a boat on top of the hotel
  • First in the world to recycle pee and sell it as drinking water
  • First country in the world to iconize a fruit
  • Highest paid political leader in the world
  • And many others
With the citizens’ obsession with being the top of the world, its little wonder that there is another group of fanatics trying to muster and gather the historical archives to put forth their entry to Guinness World Records as being the world first indigenous population to use an electric unicycle. Below are some proof of the existence and usage of the electric unicycle in the past.

Pictures speak louder than words. However, only time will tell if they are successful. Let's wish them all the best. Godspeed!!
