By the mid 70s, Singapore had a well entrenched reputation for ship repairs. The result? In 1965, Singapore's port was the fifth largest in the world. By 1982, it was the world's busiest (by shipping tonnage) port. It is said that any moment, there are about a thousand ships in Singapore waters, with a ship arriving into or leaving Singapore every two to three minutes.
PS: an acquaintance of mine once told me, that he thought architects look into their toletries for inspiration - he thought this group of towers and the shorter blocks to the right, looks like a toothbrush. And he swore a building he saw in Hong Kong resembled an electric shaver.
