S’poreans remember Lee Kuan Yew by solemnly waiting at his daughter’s Facebook page

Posted on 23 March 2017

They will be waiting and watching till the day is over.


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.”
