About 4 percent removed so far.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who do not know any better, are looking at recent photos of 38 Oxley Road house and seeing that it looks like the same thing as the past few decades.

However, the house has been getting smaller as pieces have been removed brick by brick the last two weeks.

One Singaporean, Cai Fang Zi, said: “That is impressive. So shrewd.”

“No wonder the other day I thought I saw one man and one woman walking down Oxley Road with a kitchen sink.”

“It could have been two men, but I could be wrong.”

Other locals said this is what happens to Singapore all the time as well.

Tia Chu, another local, said: “You’d see pieces of Singapore change over time right under your nose but you wouldn’t even notice it while it happens.”

“There is nothing technically illegal with removing bricks from your own private property.”

At press time, a clay urn for bathing was seen placed down the road at the refuse collection point.

If we did, none of these hard feelings would have happened.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in the power of Majulah, are shaking their heads in disbelief and making hand symbols signalling they are terribly upset.

This after they realised they did not shout “Majulah!” to help mend the public spat between Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his sister Lee Wei Ling.

One Singaporean, Xiong Di, said: “If only Singaporeans got together to shout ‘Majulah!’ at the same time for a few hours, none of this would have happened.”

“We must start shouting ‘Majulah!’ now, so that their relationship can start to get better.”

“How come no one did a video about ‘Majulah’ to make things better? Why?”

However, not all Singaporeans are optimistic shouting “Majulah” for hours on end will aid the situation.

Another local, Jie Mei, said: “We must shout ‘Majulah!’ for more than 23 hours a day to be useful.”

“That’s when we can unleash the power of Majulah and Singapore will never have any problems or dynasties.”

Friends forever? We need Majulahs badly.

They are both diametrically opposed to something.

Lee Wei Ling and Roy Ngerng are this close to adding each other as friend on Facebook.

This after they discovered they might share something in common.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who saw this development, said they are heartened by the show of solidarity.

One Singaporean, Shang Fa Ting, said it is not rare for siblings in Singapore to take each other to court: “Roy can provide some valuable tips.”

Other locals said they understand that it is from the family that most irony in life stems.

Ai Ren Nee, another local, said: “All these things are what someone’s father would not have wanted stemmed from a point being made about how all these things are what someone’s father would not have wanted.”

At press time, all popcorn in Singapore have sold out.

… she is an atheist sent by God.

This is the gist of the real original article that appeared in The Sunday Times on March 31, 2013 that is republished here.

god-atheist

Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter, Lee Wei Ling, has a patient under her care who fell afoul of the law in 2008.

To help this patient of hers, Lee Wei Ling got a psychiatrist and lawyers to provide pro bono (free-of-charge) aid.

Her patient was eventually let off with a fine.

One day before Good Friday, the patient gave Lee Wei Ling a gift and an email calling her ‘A person sent by God’.

Excitedly, Lee Wei Ling forwarded that email to her lawyer friend who provided the free legal aid, and wrote this about herself: “God sends an atheist!”

The end.

Lee Wei Ling is the daughter of His Leeness, Lee Kuan Yew.

Daughter of founder of modern Singapore judges people according to their follicular habits.

Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter, Lee Wei Ling, went on a rampage yet again in The Sunday Times on Sept. 2. Thankfully, her editor did a fine job cleaning up after her and the only upside is that it is less bad than the last time she regurgitated in the newspaper.

Right click to open this picture in another tab/ window. Click again to enlarge so that it is big enough to read.

What you can take away from her article:

She lectures a mother about how to raise her son. When she has none of her own to speak of.

How mothers feel about Dr Lee’s advice^^

She thinks men with long hair look sissy. Regardless if they have a beard or moustache.

How men with long hair feel^^

Therefore, seeing Lee Wei Ling’s name appear in the byline every time…

Whoopee. A neurologist’s take on current affairs. I can’t express how excited I am to read her insightful analyses about stuff.

Last but not least…

For everyone who appreciates a nice hair cut and doesn’t like to be told what to do with the turf on their heads…

I don’t need a nice hair cut as validation… if my father is LEE KUAN YEW!!!

Strange musings by Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter.

Right click to open this picture in another tab/ window. Click again to enlarge so that it is big enough to read.

Lee Wei Ling regurgitated again in The Sunday Times on Aug. 5, 2012.

Her thoughts this time were on frugality. And they were bound to elicit strong responses from her readers.

Here is a list, in order of what she wrote, and the emotions she elicits:

1. Lee Wei Ling started off by saying that she and her brothers are frugal because: “We had to turn off water taps completely.”

Really? I leave all my taps on when I go out of the house?

 

2. Lee Kuan Yew washes his own underwear whenever he goes overseas. Or his wife did it for him. To save money.

Lee Kuan Yew’s memoirs sure didn’t mention these vital facts…

 

3. In 2003, Lee Kuan Yew wanted his wife to mend the elastic band on his shorts even after his wife had suffered a stroke and had impaired vision.

That’s how the founder of modern Singapore saves 50 cents?

 

4. Lee Wei Ling intervenes and says that her secretary’s mother can sew very well and will ask her to mend the elastic band for Lee Kuan Yew.

^^How secretary feels when handed a pair of Lee Kuan Yew’s non-elastic shorts.

 

5. Lee Wei Ling says she has three Casio watches. And uses only one.

I guess I’m the only one then. Who wears three watches. At a time.

 

6. Lee Wei Ling only has two wrap-around skirts bought 20 years ago. Realising this, Ho Ching and some friends bought her 20 new skirts.

Oh! My! Girls shopping for girls!!!

 

7. Lee Wei Ling says she is training herself to be satisfied with necessities. By forgoing luxuries.

You can be frugal. But there is no reason not to groom yourself.

…to being an embarrassed omnivore.

This is a 60-second reduction of the original article that appeared in The Sunday Times on Jan. 29.

Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter, Lee Wei Ling, is in a bind.

She considers dolphins to be “celebrity” animals with a lot of people rallying in protest against their capture for exhibition by Resorts World Sentosa.

She then wonders what makes dolphins more worthy of sympathy given that there are other “non-celebrity” animals that are subjected to cruel treatments without protest?

So, she recounted an incident about how she met a Jewish psychologist in the US. He was a vegetarian. He avoided meat but ate scallops.

She found it odd, and later discovered that he ate scallops because he felt no empathy for them. Unlike dolphins, scallops are not cute.

Following which, she also questions if Singaporeans who eat meat are aware of the cruel conditions of rearing and slaughtering animals for food.

She contends that farmed animals killed for dietary purposes suffer more than laboratory animals killed in the name of medical science as established ethics mandates that animals killed in laboratories are euthanised in the absence of other animals in the laboratory.

This makes animals that are awaiting slaughter less terrified.

So she cannot understand why are people protesting against the cruelty against laboratory animals and not against slaughterhouse animals.

But that’s not all.

She is aware that two of the 27 wild-caught dolphins from the Solomon Islands destined for Resorts World Sentosa have died in captivity.

In her mind, she thinks this practice is cruel but these dolphins caught for exhibition should not be released back to the wild again as they might have lost their survival skills and might be attacked by sharks or drown in rubbish dumped into oceans by men.

They, therefore, should be kept in captivity since these dolphins can make RWS some money.

However, she also objects to killing sharks for their fin as this causes sharks suffering.

Hence, she confesses to being hypocritical for condemning cruelty to animals and yet still eating meat.

So what’s her problem? She cannot survive with a diet free of meat and eggs and finds being a vegan unpalatable after a few days.

She also dreams of a future where meat can be reared painlessly in cell culture for dietary and medical needs.

For now she will remain an embarrassed omnivore.

Lee Wei Ling is the daughter of His Leeness, Lee Kuan Yew.

This is a 60-second reduction of the original commentary by Lee Wei Ling published in The Sunday Times on Oct. 2.

That strapping young lad is Lee Kuan Yew, and that missus looking hawt is Kwa Geok Choo.

My mother, Kwa Geok Choo, passed away on Oct. 2 last year.

Her devastating stroke on May 12, 2008 was more extensive than the previous one five years ago, on Oct. 25, 2003. The second stroke involved more brain regions controlling movement. Her condition deteriorated after that.

Papa knew that if Mama survived the second time, she would not walk again independently. Regardless, he wanted her to feel she was an important part of his life so she would find her life worth living.

Before bringing her home for the final time, Papa brought Mama to the Istana to view her favourite spots.

Papa was also adamant that Mama go for swims in custom-made wet suits regularly to keep her active.

When Papa travelled, she would stay awake at night waiting for him to call. Even when she was frail, she tried to vocalise to communicate through the call.

But Mama’s condition continued to worsen.

I watched Mama pass away by her bedside. I did not try cardiopulmonary resuscitation. That would have been cruel and unnecessary.

When the Singapore Casket Company arrived, Papa passed them the jacket he wished Mama to wear and asked them to do their best to make her look attractive.

But even before her second stroke, as a neurologist, I knew that Mama could easily re-bleed. Papa sensed it too. That’s why Papa and Mama talked about death, and concluded that the one who left first was the lucky one.

The one remaining would suffer loneliness and grief.

A few days after the cremated ashes of Mama were brought home, Papa moved from his usual place at the dining table to face a wall where he placed photos of Mama and him in old age. He arranged them a few times before he was satisfied.

He also moved back to the bedroom he had shared with Mama for decades before her stroke. He had three more photographs of Mama and him at the foot of his bed.

The health of men often deteriorates after they lose their wives. I watched Papa getting frail everyday, his facial features grim, probably to hide his sadness.

However, by July, he showed signs of improvement.

My Papa is like titanium – light but strong, can bend a little but not prone to snapping unless under overwhelming force.

But Papa is mortal. Except he is just psychologically stronger than most people.

One thing obvious to me is that love transcends boundaries of time and place. Papa, my siblings and their wives will forever be bound by our love for Mama.

As I was halfway through writing this piece, I saw a note addressed from Papa to his three children, Hsien Loong, Hsien Yang and me.

It read: “For reasons of sentiment, I would like part of my ashes to be mixed up with Mama’s, and both her ashes and mine put side by side in the columbarium. We were joined in life and I would like our ashes to be joined after this life.”

Lee Wei Ling is the daughter of Lee Kuan Yew. She is the director of the National Neuroscience Institute.
