The Indochinese tiger or Corbett's tiger (Panthera tigris corbetti) is a subspecies of tiger found in Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand, and Vietnam and formerly in China. Tigers in peninsular Malaysia, formerly classified as Indochinese, have recently been reclassified as a separate subspecies, Malayan tiger Panthera tigris jacksoni. The "Corbett's" name stems from the scientific name of the subspecies, Panthera tigris corbetti, which in turn is named in honor of Jim Corbett. No Indochinese tigers have been seen in China since 2007, and it is believed that the last specimen was killed and eaten by a man now sentenced to 12 years and imprisoned for the crime.

The Singapore Alliance Party, or sometimes known as just Singapore Alliance, was a coalition of political parties that contested several elections in Singapore, notably the 1955 Elections of Singapore and the 1963 Elections of Singapore that was heavily backed by the local chapter of the United Malays National Organisation, and also consists of the Singapore Malay Union and a local chapter of the Malayan Chinese Association. Its campaign policy during the 1963 elections was similar to what the UMNO used in federal elections in Malaysia, and alleged the ruling People's Action Party mistreated the Malays, one of the major races in Singapore. Its participation in the elections further contributed to the then ongoing feud between UMNO and the PAP as they had earlier agreed neither side would participate in each other's elections until Malaysia, which Singapore was then an autonomous state of, was more mature. Although they had expected to retain their seats in Malay-dominated areas such as Geylang and Kampong Glam, to their shock, they did not.

The Malayan Emergency was a guerrilla war fought between Commonwealth armed forces and the Malayan National Liberation Army, the military arm of the Malayan Communist Party, from 1948 to 1960. The Malayan Emergency was the colonial government's term for the conflict. The MNLA termed it the Anti-British National Liberation War. The rubber plantations and tin mining industries had pushed for the use of the term "emergency" since their losses would not have been covered by Lloyd's insurers if it had been termed a "war". Despite the communists' defeat in 1960, communist leader Chin Peng renewed the insurgency in 1967, it would last until 1989, and became known as the Communist Insurgency War. But although Australian and British armed forces had fully withdrawn from Malaysia years earlier, the insurgency still failed.
The unit trust industry in Malaysia was first established by British investors in 1959 with the introduction of the Malayan Unit Trust Ltd. It is called unit trust instead of mutual fund because the ownership of the fund is divided into units of entitlement. Initially, the growth of the unit trust in Malaysia was very slow due to lack of public interest. The turning point for the industry was when the Malaysian government decided to enter into the industry by launching a government sponsored unit trust known as Amanah Saham Nasional (ASN). Among the strategies are personal selling,advertising, sales promotion, public relations and direct selling. Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad (ASNB) was subsequently established as a wholly- owned subsidiary of Permodalan Nasional Berhad. The primary objective of ASNB is to mobilize the savings of the individual Bumiputras through the marketing and selling of the proposed national unit trust to the Bumiputra individuals. In addition Amanah Saham National Berhad is also responsible for educating the Bumiputras on the benefits of investing.
