My friend doesn't like LKY and thought I share the same sentiment.
My answer to him was that, it's my condolences for Singaporeans, plain and simple.
LKY is the father of Singapore and what he did for the island state is admirable.
That, despite him being a thorn in Malaysia's side for so long.
Looking back, I believe LKY was just another guy who tried to do good for himself and others.
|My favorite picture of LKY and wife Kwa Geck Choo when they were students in UK. LKY was in love just like others. Anyone capable of falling in love can't be too bad.|
LKY did what he had to do for his people.
I have no quarrel with Singaporeans and wish them well.
In fact, half of the younger members of my family are Singaporeans.
So, today, I share their sadness.
May Malaysians and Singaporeans always be good friends.
