S’poreans anticipate 45-page full-coloured hagiography ST spread on LKY 2nd death anniversary

Posted on 07 March 2017

They can’t wait to read all about his life again.


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.”
