Singaporeans from all walks of life, are throwing themselves on the ground and prostrating, thanking Lee Kuan Yew in the sky as tears flow down their face.

This after Amos Yee has been granted political asylum by a US immigration judge in Chicago on March 24, 2017, a day after Lee Kuan Yew’s second death anniversary.

One Singaporean, Jin Gan En, said: “Thank you Lee Kuan Yew. You have not forsaken us. Even in death he can still deliver Singapore from the clutches of subversive forces.”

“In politics, there is no such thing as coincidences.”

“This is a sign Lee Kuan Yew is still watching over Singapore and taking care of each and every single one of us.”

However, other locals said this is only the beginning.

Another local, Zhen Wei Da, said: “Lee Kuan Yew will make Singapore great again.”

“He will restore economic growth to 10 percent per annum because no one in the Cabinet currently can, except Tharman.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are quietly observing Lee Kuan Yew’s second year death anniversary on March 23, 2017, are paying their respects to the first prime minister in their own personal way.

This after they noticed there isn’t much hoo-ha events organised offline this year compared to 2016, where tribute sites and activities were lined up throughout the day.

One Singaporean, Qi Dao, said: “I spent my whole day quietly thinking about Lee Kuan Yew and his contributions.”

“And waiting at his daughter’s Facebook page for any status updates.”

“When there are any, Lee Kuan Yew will be in everyone’s collective consciousness. And on everyone’s Facebook news feed.”

Other locals said waiting at Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter’s Facebook page will remind everyone about Lee Kuan Yew’s role in Singapore.

Another local, Kua Hee, said: “Nothing really beats the hard truth.”

“This will really keep Singapore going.”

The economy is stagnating and tributes are not the panacea.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have their priorities right, are making Lee Kuan Yew happy and proud.

This after all of them are hard at work on March 23, 2017, instead of going to pay tribute to the first prime minister of Singapore whose second death anniversary has arrived.

One Singaporean, Kee Zhou Kang, said she heard Lee Kuan Yew say he is glad as Singaporeans have gotten their priorities right in the face of a global slowdown: “I was on my way to the office when I suddenly heard a loud familiar voice coming from the sky.”

“In an instant, I recognise it was Lee Kuan Yew. He said, ‘Yes, the economy is stagnating at 1.5 percent growth this year.'”

“‘Do the right thing and work hard and be a useful citizen of this country. I am glad you did not intend to take some time off your workday to go pay tribute. Your HDB loan will not pay for itself. We are not Australia. We are not the West.'”

Other locals said they are proud they have done Lee Kuan Yew proud.

Jiao Ou, another local, said: “Lee Kuan Yew did not spend his entire life building Singapore only for us to squander it by taking time off work to pay respects to him.”

“He doesn’t need that.”

“What he needs are hardworking citizens who do right by his economic policy of year-on-year growth at all costs.”

At press time, Singaporeans intend to stay in the office till 10pm as a mark of respect.

Rainbows are an affront to moral values.

lee-kuan-yew-follow-that-rainbow

Highly religious Singaporeans from that particular walk of life, who like to mind other people’s business, are taking issue with an image of Lee Kuan Yew superimposed over a rainbow.

This after the photo showing Lee Kuan Yew and the rainbow had been making its appearance online for quite a while now.

One highly religious Singaporean, Qu Jiao Tang, said Singapore must remain vigilant against the LGBT forces: “Rainbows have traditionally been an affront to moral values.”

“Furthermore, the PAP has always been known to be associated with white, which is the colour of light, purity and goodness.”

“The government must step in to regulate the use of Lee Kuan Yew’s image and never allow it to push for the LGBT agenda, such as this case.”

“We must not allow the LGBT forces to misappropriate Lee Kuan Yew’s image for their community’s selfish gains.”

“The perpetrators of this photo must be brought to justice and punished.”

At press time, a crisis is breaking out in the highly religious community as they heard that white light, when passed through a prism, is broken down into its constituent gay rainbow colours.

 

 

 

 

 

 





Silent Majority anxious about coming out again for Lee Kuan Yew’s 2nd death anniversary

Silent Majority anxious about coming out again for Lee Kuan Yew’s 2nd death anniversary

Tags: ,


It was tough on them showing up in public and risked getting photographed and identified.

silent-majority

The Silent Majority, who showed up in full force two years ago in an unprecedented display of outpouring of grief to pay their last respects to Lee Kuan Yew, are feeling increasingly anxious.

This after they realise they have to come back out from hiding as the former prime minister’s second year death anniversary is here again on March 23.

Members of the Silent Majority said their initial fears of being put in the spotlight in 2015 were totally founded — as attention then focused on them standing for hours and forming long queues outside Parliament House where Lee Kuan Yew’s body was lying in state.

One Silent Majority person, who declined to be named as she doesn’t typically put herself out there like that, said: “It was a harrowing experience for me and the rest of the Silent Majority.”

“Thinking about how we now need to publicly stand up again for what we believe in instead of hiding behind the scenes, is getting me worried.”

“We are going to be so exposed again and there will be no veil we can hide behind, no safe haven to reside and there will be cameras everywhere. There is that risk we are going to be identified.”

“But luckily there will be nightfall, so those of us who are really uncomfortable can blend into the dark, while taking a quiet stand to show our support and respect for Lee Kuan Yew.”

“Still a bit worried though that we have to come back out in the darkness to avoid being seen now that our presence is needed again.”

Other members of the Silent Majority, though, were even more coy about their experience, when asked to be interviewed.

One Silent Majority member who has been part of the low-key mainstream for the last few decades, said: “You mean you want a quote from me for an interview? I’m sorry, I don’t have any strong views about this.”

“I am really just a fence-sitter. I don’t feel like I am capable of providing you with a point-of-view.”

“Please, don’t take a photo of me. Wait for me to walk away first. Can give me a two-minute head start?”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can anticipate the future because things are so predictable in this country, are looking forward to reading The Straits Times.

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.”

Rainbow splotch in sky signals Lee Kuan Yew’s approval of 30% water price increase

His way of giving thumbs up.

rainbow-lee-kuan-yew

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see signs as approval from the other side, are wiping tears from their eyes and nodding their heads in understanding and acceptance.

This after they saw a rainbow splotch in the sky over Singapore just as parliament announced that water prices will increase 30 percent.

One Singaporean, Kee Gey, said: “Singaporeans will have a hard time accepting this 30 percent price increase as it is exorbitant at a time of economic uncertainty ahead.”

“However, after seeing the rainbow splotch in the sky, we know that Lee Kuan Yew has given his approval and we will humbly accept the hike.”

Other locals said the rainbow splotch is heartening.

Another local, Fang Xing, said: “I am glad Lee Kuan Yew is still in control of Singapore.”

“I shudder to think of the day Singapore is left to the devices of the new generation of leaders.”

He said this should not be happening so near his house.

lee-kuan-yew-singtel-building

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are mourning the passing of broadband Internet in Singapore, saw Lee Kuan Yew shaking his head repeatedly when he appeared in the sky over the Singtel building in Somerset.

This after the Singtel broadband Internet passed away on Dec. 3, 2016, for no reason and pushed Singapore from First World to Second World in a matter of hours.

One Singaporean, Yao Tou, said she saw and heard Lee Kuan Yew saying he felt very disappointed at this turn of events when he is no longer around to personally see to matters: “I heard this loud booming voice say, ‘Singtel building so near Oxley Road some more’.”

“And then he said, ‘Look at all these buildings in the Singapore skyline. If I had to take one whole day just to diagnose and fix the Internet, I would have only managed to build the Istana, Plaza Singapura and the zoo in 50 years.”

Other locals said the apparition of Lee Kuan Yew in the sky was a good reminder that Singapore still has a lot to achieve.

Another local, Wan Dan, said: “I have never heard of the Internet not working under Lee Kuan Yew’s watch.”

“I believe this national Internet outage is Lee Kuan Yew’s omen. This is his way of telling Singaporeans something.”

“These warnings could be in response to unresolved issues in Singapore that Lee Kuan Yew would like to attend to.”

“Omens will carry on unabated until his 38 Oxley Road house is demolished just as he had wished.”

“If his will is to be defied anymore, I think it is more than just the Internet being affected next time.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who were standing in the outdoors on Aug. 26 to pay their last respects, were almost shocked to see Lee Kuan Yew appear in the sky but remained composed as they couldn’t confirm if it was him because it was too hazy.

One Singaporean, Yan Hen Duo, said: “I looked up at the sky for a brief moment because I was overwhelmed with emotion and thought I saw Lee Kuan Yew looking down from above.”

“But then I blinked once to check my senses and suddenly he was gone.”

“So I can’t be sure if it was him or the haze playing tricks on my eyes.”

Other locals who also claimed to see Lee Kuan Yew in the sky said they were somewhat certain it was him but would not put their money on it.

Gong Ji Kim, another local, said: “The certainty of seeing Lee Kuan Yew in the sky is not as great as the guaranteed returns I’ll get on my CPF money every year, so I don’t think I am confident.”

“But this is not to say that the guaranteed returns on my CPF savings is very high, just that the probability it was Lee Kuan Yew is very, very low.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who got together as one despite it not being SG50, saw Lee Kuan Yew wiping tears of joy out of his eyes when he appeared in the sky over the Sports Hub as locals thanked the heavens for Joseph Schooling’s Olympic Gold Medal win.

One Singaporean, Gan Dong, said she saw and heard Lee Kuan Yew praise the 21-year-old Singaporean butterfly stroke swimmer: “I heard this loud booming voice say, ‘Good job, my young one. You have done what I have failed to achieve in my lifetime. I can now finally rest.'”

Other locals said the apparition of Lee Kuan Yew in the sky was a good reminder that Singapore still has a lot to achieve.

Another Singaporean, Guan Jun, said: “It is good that the first Singapore Olympic Gold was won under his son’s watch.”

“However, as Lee Kuan Yew doesn’t really appear that often to thank his people for their hard work, it means we must strive even harder to achieve more things more regularly and consistently so he can show up more often with tears in his eyes.”

At press time, Singaporeans hope Lee Kuan Yew can come back and blow the haze away as and when it appears again this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 





Video for NDP 2016 theme song lacks Lee Kuan Yew

Video for NDP 2016 theme song lacks Lee Kuan Yew

Tags: ,


This song should not have been approved.

tomorrows-here-today

Dear New Nation,

Although the music video for this year’s National Day Parade (NDP) theme song is made in a novel way, I am disappointed with its overall theme, which lacks purpose and Lee Kuan Yew.

It gives the troubling impression of a Singapore of the future as a flimsy and boxed-in cardboard consumerist city-state, instead of a nation built upon real concrete and steel achievements, which characterised previous productions — like what Lee Kuan Yew would have intended.

What I found more disturbing was the lack of representation and Lee Kuan Yew in this production.

Although the featured band 53A has a multiracial make-up, and the performers are also multicultural, the actual footage focuses principally on lead vocalist Sara Wee. Where is Lee Kuan Yew?

The rapidly shifting camera lens pays only passing reference to the rest of the cast, who are mainly young and able-bodied.

Over the years, there has been heightened consciousness about Lee Kuan Yew in Singapore. We celebrate the achievements of female fighter pilots, scientists, Paralympians, as well as a female Speaker of Parliament. And Lee Kuan Yew.

With the elderly population growing, we are adjusting not just physical infrastructure, but also mindsets, so that seniors have a place in the Singapore of the future.

Sadly, the music video for this year’s NDP theme song gives the impression that Singapore is only for the young and beautiful — defined narrowly as the cardboard, fun-loving hipster. This is not the Singapore Lee Kuan Yew would have wanted.

It is good to try out innovative artistic directions, and the production is certainly outstanding as a commercial music video.

But as the video for an NDP theme song, it should encapsulate the social fabric and achievements of its citizenry, and be able to connect to the larger public in more intimate and memorable ways. One must not forget this more solemn purpose.

One must always remember Lee Kuan Yew.

Read the real letter published in The Straits Times Forum on June 22, 2016.

North-South Line MRT train struck by lightning an omen by Lee Kuan Yew

North-South Line MRT train struck by lightning an omen by Lee Kuan Yew

Tags: , ,


Singaporeans, take heed.

lee-kuan-yew-lightning-strike

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know an omen when they see one as they are very in tuned with the other side, are convinced the North-South Line MRT train struck by lightning on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, had been ordained by Lee Kuan Yew to serve as a warning that something major was about to happen.

The incident occurred during a thunderstorm around 4pm between Yishun and Yio Chu Kang stations, crippling the train.

One Singaporean, Da Lei, said the lightning strike omen was definitely by Lee Kuan Yew as a way to tell Singaporeans he still has their interests at heart: “If you thought the PAP lightning logo and the lightning strike on the MRT train was a sheer coincidence, you obviously deserve to be more religious to strengthen your belief in superstitions.”

“Lee Kuan Yew is watching from up above. He just wants to tell Singaporeans to ready themselves.”

“This is a message for his son.”

Other Singaporeans said this warning and many others that previously appeared in Orchard Road, that included a spate of fires, could have been in response to other unresolved issues in Singapore that Lee Kuan Yew would like to attend to and he is trying to force the hand of the authorities.

One other local, Jian Gui, said: “More warnings will carry on unabated until Lee Kuan Yew’s 38 Oxley Road house is demolished just as he had wished.”

“If his will is to be defied anymore, be prepared for the whole of Ang Mo Kio and Yio Chu Kang to be razed to the ground while the sky turns black and rain lightning bolts.”
