Giving a Eulogy at Lee Kuan Yew's State Funeral service, Mr Lee Hsien Yang, shared an insight into Mr Lee Kuan Yew as a family man instead of the usual public figure Singaporeans are accustomed to. Hsien Yang said that his father had always been a public figure for as long as he could remember and he felt that Lee Kuan Yew may have had a tinge of regret at not having spent as much time with his children as they grew up.
Thousands upon thousands have lined the streets today to pay their last respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew who's state funeral procession passed by today. Among those who were present included foreign workers. According to TNP, one of the foreign workers was Mr Sivalingam Raja, a 32-year-old worker from India who told them that without Mr Lee Kuan Yew, he would not have had a job in Singpaore building the big buildings here.
Lee Kuan Yew's state funeral procession started at 12:30pm to cover a path of 15.4kms from Parliament House to NUS Cultural Centre. Despite the heavy rain, Singaporeans and foreigners alike lined the streets to pay their final respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the man widely regarded as the founding father of Singapore.

Many are migrant workers abandoned by their boat captains after the government passed a moratorium on foreign fishing five months ago, according to the International Organisation for Migration, which released the figure yesterday (March 28).
One of the self-serving narratives of LKY and the PAP administration is that LKY had good, long-standing personal relations with Chinese leaders. They were “old friends”. Well then, how come it seems that China’s leaders are not giving that much face to LKY (and S’pore) by only standing Vice-President Li Yuanchao?
