    In fact, he's my favourite.

    He portrayed not as a fatherly but rather as a grandfatherly figure. I can still remember he's last NDP as the President ... the drive past ... it was really emotional man ...

    He is the best president so far Singapore has ever had... How come his passing was so low-profile one?... No news scrollers on tv at all too!

    A sad day for many...
    Indeed, he is my favourite President too. Always humble and willing to reach out to the mass, he'll be missed by many.

    "To me in the eyes of God and in law, we are all equal. I could have been President of Singapore at one time but if you take away the word President from me I'm just Wee Kim Wee, just like a taxi driver or whoever, a journalist." quoted from CNA.com

    My condolences to Mr. Wee's family.

    A humble man indeed... even after his passing...

    Quote from CNA:
    "Mr Bill Wee said his father had expressed a wish not to have his remains interred at the Kranji War Cemetery.

    Instead, he wished to be buried at the public cemetery in Mandai, where ordinary Singaporeans are buried." For full reading, click here

    For those who wishes to pay their last respect for this man, you can do so from Tue to Thurs, at the Istana.

    A sad day,

    Knowing his character, I can bet that he would not have wished his passing to be high profile

    My condolences .. he's by far my favourite President - totally no airs about him. Very fatherly, extremely humble and kind.

    The news about MRT fare (and also SBS/TIBS) price hike yesterday sucks. The subway fare in Singapore is already one of the highest in the world (besides Japan and NYC).
