In accordance with restructuring at parent company SMRT Corporation, TIBS was renamed "SMRT Buses" on 10 May 2004 along with the subsequent merger of City Shuttle Service.

 


 

The Singapore Literature Prize (SLP), which was launched on 31 May 1991 by the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS), was one of the biggest literary awards in Singapore at the time. It was initially conceived as an annual competition to encourage quality creative writing and to promote local literary works in English.  The award was presented to the best unpublished fiction work, and alternates between novels/short stories in one year and poetry/drama the next. Drama and poetry were, however, excluded in 1993 and 1996 respectively.
