RIP Mr Lee Kuan Yew..

Today is a sad day for Singaporeans.

The first Prime Minister of Singapore passed away at 3.18am.

I woke up from interrupted sleep at 6.30am and overheard Blueberry talking to my father-in-law about his passing. My heart ached upon hearing the news.

Not just our first Prime Minister.. he was our Founding Father. The man who made Singapore.

Amongst the many things Mr Lee had done for Singapore, two things impacted my life the most.

He changed the housing situation for Singaporeans.. and he was passionate in greening Singapore, thus helping Singapore to become a garden city.

I’m grateful for what Mr Lee has done.

Blueberry and I wouldn’t able to own our first home.. and my blog wouldn’t be filled with pictures of the trees/plants from our neighbourhood.

Flags flying half mast.. seven days of national mourning for Mr Lee Kuan Yew's passing.
