I was logged in to Facebook while watching the parade on TV, because I'm a social media addict, and it was heart warming to see all the National Day updates from my friends on my newsfeed. All fillled with family, friends, love. And good sentiments. You know, you really choose to be happy and embrace all that is good in life. That's the way it should be.
I loved looking at their proud & happy pictures on this day. (Hope you don't mind me sharing your posts which brought me much cheer, but if you would like me to delete, just let me know.)
Another thing that struck a chord in me, was when Lee Kuan Yew arrived. He looked so frail that it made me sad to see him weak. I'm sure there were others who felt the same.Then it surprised me that some people on Facebook were posting nasty comments about him. Why are they hating on Harry? It's like these people have no sense of empathy. It made them feel good to see him old and frail. They relish it and even laugh. Someone even called him an orang utan. Even if you don't like how he ruled Singapore, such criticism and wishing ill fate upon others is very poor form. I suppose people who are helpless can only vent their frustrations through slagging. But you should feel like an ass, not feel proud about your lack of class.

I think Lee Kuan Yew has done an awesome job picking up the pieces when Singapore was in shambles 49 years ago, and building our nation to the formidable one we have today. Ok, he may not be the same race as me. And I feel Eurasians in Singapore do not get so many perks in terms of government funding. But I don't expect my government to pick up my slack anyway. So, I'm still grateful for all that Lee Kuan Yew has done.

Yes, life in Singapore is tough but there are pros and cons everywhere in this world. Blame yourself if u cannot succeed, not the government. No one owes you a bed of roses, so stop acting so entitled!
For every one of you that leaves this country there are a few thousand others (at least) who are queuing to get in and take your place here.
Pffft... if not for Lee Kuan Yew, you would be herding chickens in some shit filled kandang.
P/S - Normally, I never delete comments people make on my blog, but I will have to delete race related comments here. It's not just one race that is hating on LKY, so don't turn it into a racial thing. K, thanks!
All I know that my friends in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hongkong and Taiwan are all doing fantastically well without the albatross that is Lee Kuan Yew.
The problem is with politics. It is Rome's politics. He has not left anything that's ethrnal. Some say. ..looks good now but for how long
