Dear TRS, Today, I made my way down to Parliament House to pay my respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew and received a bottle of free water from people who were handing them out. I am thankful for the kindness which people are showing for those queuing up but I am worried if some companies are using this as a convenient way to clear old stock.

The outpouring of love and respect for the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, our founding Prime Minister, has been overwhelming. More importantly, just as in the passing of a revered patriarch of a family, it has brought all Singaporeans together. His death caused us to focus on his life’s work and reminded us how poor we started out, how fortunate that the heavens smiled on us and gave us Mr Lee and his colleagues who persevered through difficulties to build a thriving metropolis.
The Indian National Government has declared a day of national mourning on Sunday as mark of respect to the former Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew. The Indian National Flag will be flown at half-mast throughout the country and there will be no official entertainment on Sunday, Lee’s funeral day, an official statement said.
A taxi driver was sentenced to 9 months in jail for molesting two of his female passengers. Ang Wei Leong, 37, had committed the offences in October 2013 and June 2014. He pleaded guilty to using criminal force to outrage the modesty of another person. The first incident happened on October 31 2013 when he was driving a woman home from Clarke Quay.
A Singaporean family have started a petition calling on a statue to be built to honour Lee Kuan Yew. Here is what they wrote on the petition page: Losing Lee Kuan Yew is the greatest heartbreak for Singapore. People can say whatever they like but they can never disagree that he was the pillar and foundation of this nation; a true leader who had propelled the nation massively forward.
After reading Mr Tan Wah Piow's claim that Lee Kuan Yew's death would set us Singaporeans free, a strong sense of indignation and sadness overcame me. I cannot fathom the fact that just two days after Mr Lee's passing, a fellow human being would take the opportunity to cast such a low blow and label fellow Singaporeans as mindless minions.
