Farewell, Mr Lee!

Today, I am pausing my weekly “I Love Series” for the most respectable man, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

There was a time when people said
That Singapore won’t make it
But we did

There was a time when troubles
Seemed too much for us to take
But we did

We built a nation
Strong and free
Reaching out together
For peace and harmony

-National patriotic song, We Are Singapore.

He envisioned a better Singapore and he did it.

I was able to draft “I Love Singapore” because of all his hard work.

It is totally worth it to spend 4.5 hours under the hot sun and even a sudden drizzle just to bow to him for less than 10 seconds. This is nothing compared to what he did for Singapore and all the Singaporeans.

My favourite quote of his:

I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up?

My life.

Thank you and goodbye, Mr Lee!
