    A (Founding) Father who cares is all about that. Never Forget.
    Very well said. A real man in a real world, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, may God bless you.
    Home is where the heart is.

    Mr Lee Kuan Yew is an ordinary man, like anyone of us. He uses his intelligence and dedicated his life to build this nation. No man is a perfect human. Whether it's 3rd or 1st world, I'm grateful to Mr Lee for what he has done that I can sit comfortably and safe to write in this forum. A Great Man of our time!

    well said!

    How true. And worrying as a child whether today we have one meal or two meal.

    i think there is a bit of herd behaviour in this "long queue" phenomenon.
    Even tourists also join in.

    This is a once in a life time opportunity.
    I was also in the queue yesterday. Fortunately, they keep changing the system until the queue speed up. I manage to pay my respect to Mr Lee after 4 hours of queue. Some people queue for 8 hours or more.

    Our current PM came out to the queue to shake hands with those in the queue. I was fortunate to have a snap shot of the PM and his brother.

    Queueing is SG No.1 national sport
    Every day, at certain point of time, you are in a queue.

    Queue for food/drinks
    Queue for transport (bus/trains/taxi)
    Queue for hello kitty dolls
    Queue for K-pop stars overnight
    Queue for book out during NS
    Queue for banks/ATM
    Queue for passport at ICA
    Queue for Toto/4D
    Queue for custom to go to JB
    Queue for cashier at supermarket
    Queue for boarding budget airline to travel oversea

    And the list goes on and on ...

    It seem like we queue to kill the time

    We are well train and condition for queueing. Therefore, 4 hours queue is no problem lah

    Not me. I remember. I am one of his critic and also supporter. But here is a man who did it his way with his team, did good things but also willing to do the necessary dirty work that mere men will shy away from. He's not about wining the popularity contest. He does what needed to be done and if it needs a cruel hand so be it.

    For the Good of the Many (far out weigh the few) a few shall fall. So while those of us who stand here now doing well in life, you are part of that "Many" that benefited. So spare a heart for the few who fall. The history of a country, any country is not all about the niceties and all that romanticizing notions that we like to remember. But it is also of things we sweep under the carpet of our minds as it is too harsh to think about. But someone has to take out the trash each day to keep the house clean.

    But I agree. Lots of hypocrites and sadden to see the amount of "commercializing tactics used" disguised as sincerity but that's the world we live in. "How-to-profit-from-moments-of-weakness". Let's keep the usual politics out this 7 days out of respect for a man we might not appreciate what he had to do to get us here. You have to at least respect him that much for it. No. I am not for the present crop of politicians but for Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his pioneering team, I owe them my deepest marked respect. We all should.

    Anti Selfie here. Beside I need no photos to remind me of what I experienced under his time and see with my own eyes the changes.

    I have only superficially studied Mr. Lee so I cannot say anything about him other than maybe to offer my condolences to your nation and his family. So R.I.P. Mr. Lee!

    Perhaps this is his greatest legacy maybe?

    (edit * author of this piece is sort of a ding dong spinner but his point about respect and tolerance in Singapore is one of the things I find interesting about Singapore)
