They can’t wait to read all about his life again.
This is so as Lee Kuan Yew’s second-year death anniversary will take place on March 23, 2017, causing Singaporeans to look forward to a 45-page full-coloured special spread in ST celebrating the life and times of the republic’s first prime minister again.
One Singaporean, Kua Sin Boon, said: “The reporters in ST must be working long and hard, day and night, these few weeks putting together a comprehensive blow-by-blow account of the life and times of Lee Kuan Yew.”
“Not only do I look forward to the newspapers that day, but I am also anticipating a new book that will shed more light on our first leader’s life and times in an even more intimate and sentimental way.”
“I also hope Channel News Asia telecasts a 24-hour special on how Lee Kuan Yew defeated the Communists with his bare hands.”
Other locals said nothing can beat this feeling of anticipation.
Another local, Da Jia, said: “Many Singaporeans are looking forward to the ST spread.”
“But I’m just sitting here waiting for the prime minister’s sister to write something on Facebook.”
