S’poreans rejoice at announcement to build JubiLee Bridge as tribute to Lee Kuan Yew

Posted on 03 April 2015

Subtlety has always been a hallmark of our government.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who miss Lee Kuan Yew are rejoicing.

This after Minister for National Development Khaw Boon Wan revealed in his blog that a new bridge named JubiLee Bridge will be built to pay tribute to Lee Kuan Yew.

The JubiLee Bridge will be built along the Marina Bay that links Merlion Park to the waterfront promenade in front of the Esplanade.

The official excuse, though, is that JubiLee Bridge is a befitting name as Singapore is celebrating her 50th year in existence.

Zhen Zhou Dao, a Singaporean, said he is impressed by Singapore’s progress made in the area of being subtle: “Subtlety has always been a hallmark of our government.”

“I remember several years ago, Singapore organised a nation-wide competition for several months to ask people to come up with a name for the budget terminal at Changi Airport.”

“After many months of choosing and waiting, they eventually selected the winner, who named the budget terminal as ‘Budget Terminal’.”

“Immediately, I thought then, ‘Wow Singapore is so subtle with our references, we picked the most unlikely name for the budget terminal. The amount of creativity is uplifting.”

“But with the ‘JubiLee Bridge’, I see that we have reached another higher level altogether with our sleight-of-hand techniques.”

 

Singaporeans must pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew, or else:
