Shared my personal encounter with MM Lee in 2010 at last night's Tribute event @ AMK Central Stage: "Being a young politician, I have much to learn from this remarkable statesman. My only regret is not having the opportunity to learn more from him directly. My only substantial personal contact with the then MM Lee was in the year 2010 when he made an unannounced visit to the Sengkang Floating wetland and the new Anchorvale CC.

A call to allow Singaporeans to hang the National flag from their homes for Lee Kuan Yew's State Funeral on Sunday has been rejected by Lawrence Wong, the Minister for culture, community and youth. Mr Wong said that he liked how there were ground-up initiatives sprouting up but he felt that such a gesture may not be the right tone of the day.
BG Chiang Hock Woon, the commander of the Singapore Army's 9th Division, was seen personally mashalling crowds and organising queues at the Padang yesterday evening. He was working there as the state funeral procession rehearsal was going on and he continued to stay there answer questions and making sure things ran smoothly and the mourners were comfortable.
No matter how friendly or unfriendly we are, the passing away of a man you know well saddens you. I cannot say I was a close friend of Kuan Yew. But still I feel sad at his demise. Kuan Yew became well known at a young age. I was a student in Singapore when I read about his defence of labour unions.
