    I accept the name if they have a section devoted to traitors who collaborated

    I hope they do. It would be an inspiration to so many sinkies that jap collaborators will do well in life while anti-jap resistance fighters ended up either dead or losers.
    Do something meaningful. Join the grassroots. Peoples' Association all the way!

    With much gratitude and I'm humbled. I was checking with some kiddos around my area, they too didn't have a clue what Syonan meant, they jokingly added they knew what Syo Kan was...

    It was a pretty good name for an occupied territory. Clearly the Japanese have put much thought in it. Sinkies should be honoured their occupiers paid so much attention renaming this piece of rock.

    Doubt there would be any changes to the name for now. Pinky seemed pleased after his visit to the Ford Factory today.
