A week from sadness to solidarity

A week to be remembered, when a giant left us, a nation cried and awakened…

22nd April- Well wishers leaving flowers, gifts and cards at the “Quad” in Singapore General Hospital, wishing Lee Kuan Yew well

23rd April- Mr Lee Kuan Yew passed away…

24rd Nov- Lee Kuan Yew passed on.. A memorial tribute in Tanjong Pagar Community Club

 

Penning down our thoughts.. no words can describe out gratitude, sadness to our founding father

 

A photo that brought out much tears to my eyes.. A frail old man still insisting to stand up, right arm to his heart and reciting the Singapore pledge. Sir, you have far exceed the fulfilment of the pledge

 

25 April- Queuing up for State Funeral. A student giving out free drinks. under hot afternoon sun

 

Office workers, house wife, executives, retirees, Singaporean from all sort of lives queueing up, and the queue formed a long snaking queue at Hong Lim Park

 

The queue passed by Fullerton Hotel where flags at half mast

 

Final lap of the queue before going into the Parliament House for a 2 min glimpse and salute to Mr Lee

 

29 April- And pouring rain, and we drenched, and we stood firm on the muddy soil, our soil, to pay our respect.

 

We postponed our Nepal trip by a day so that we can witness the state funeral. Glad that we did .
