ATTENTION! To all Elgins, here is your bridge!

Yes, to all Elgins, here is your bridge, white, curved and just plain tourist attractive. And guess what? It was the first bridge to link the Chinese to the Indians and it was before 1819, where Raffles set-foot on our tiny island called singapura. That posh guy couldn't pronounce that malay name, called it tosh and changed it into singapore, much to the Malays dismay(just kidding). Okay, lets get serious, the Elgin bridge was built and rebuilt three times! And the person it was named after was James Bruce! You cant find a single Elgin in that particular name, so it was plain weird. Well, I've got to go, until next time! :)
