Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are eternally grateful to Singapore’s founding fathers for building a country to become a shopping paradise with multiple food dining options, are crying their hearts out in appreciation.

This after thousands of Singaporeans saw Lee Kuan Yew appear in the sky over Orchard Road all of a sudden on Dec. 31, 2015, as he wished everyone in Singapore a “Happy New Year”.

One Singaporean, Xing Nian, said, she was shocked to see the founding father perched over the horizon delivering his year-end greeting, while she was queuing to buy the $1.20 ice cream from the roadside cart: “I was left in shock at the sight for more than 15 minutes, which caused my ice cream to melt.”

“After that I had to queue again to buy another one. But it was worth it as I saw something extraordinary that I will remember until next year, around March or April, or until another newfangled sight catches my attention.”

Other Singaporeans said they also heard Lee Kuan Yew remind Singaporeans to demolish his 38 Oxley Road house, or else, Orchard Road will be flooded again and more trees will catch fire.

Kuai Le, said: “Lee Kuan Yew said, ‘Remember to demolish my 38 Oxley Road house. I don’t want to repeat myself again this time next year’.”

“And then he said: ‘Preserving a house for the sake of culture and heritage is but a highfalutin idea’.”
