Thank You Mr Lee
This morning, the first thing the man did was to turn on the telly and tuned into Channel News Asia. Something quite unlike him. It was like there was something we needed to know, only to realise that the greatest leader Singapore ever had has left us. I never took an interest in the country's political state of affairs. But being the history student I was, I am fully aware of the struggles this nation has gone through. Perhaps this is the very reason, I sometimes take the comfort and safety of our country for granted because I was born during a time when we were beginning to enjoy Mr Lee Kwan Yew's fruit of labour. Reading tributes to Mr Lee that flooded social media today, I thought back to the time I lived overseas as a university student.
