Singapore and Malaysia really amazed me, being such small countries, they are developed to great extent. The roads in Malaysia are very clean. The credits of keeping Malaysia clean entirely goes to the citizens. Citizens of Singapore are really disciplined which lead to development of their country. After this trip I took an oath to keep my country neat and clean and hence made my contribution towards the development of my country
