S’poreans disappointed only a few hundred events to be held to remember Lee Kuan Yew

Posted on 18 March 2016

They were expecting tens of thousands of events.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who love authority and are eternally grateful, are shaking their heads in disappointment.

This after they found out that only a few hundred events are being held by individuals and groups in the coming days to remember first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew, whose one-year death anniversary is coming up.

One Singaporean, Soh Nan Guo, said she never expected Singapore to be so backward in preparing for an international event like this: “I am ashamed to call myself Singaporean when I found out there will only be few hundred events to remember Lee Kuan Yew by.”

“We have let standards drop so quickly. It has not even been one year from his passing and we are already struggling to do things properly.”

“I worry about Singapore’s future and how can we proceed if we do not buck up.”

At press time, Singaporeans who feel more should be done are considering emigrating overseas out of shame.
