Last night, I was part of the 8 hour queue that paid our last respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew at the Parliament house. What I witnessed compelled me to change my view of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) forever, and for the better. Most Singapore men, having gone through National Service, will know the criticisms made towards NS. (I was in the army.)

THEREALSINGAPORE 30 March 2015 - 4:04pm

Honoured guests, friends, and family. When the grandchildren were very little, Ye Ye would take us on walks to feed the fishes at the Istana.

THEREALSINGAPORE 30 March 2015 - 2:42pm

Honoured guests, friends and family Papa was born in 1923 when Singapore was part of the British Empire, the Straits Settlements flag fluttered over Government House, and the people of Singapore sang ‘God Save the King’.
