Saw the Singapore flag at half mast at a mosque at Jalan Eunos.

Moving scenes on TV. I think Mr Chiam See Tong is a class act. It was heartwarming to see PM Lee greeting him.

Scenes reflecting the importance of Mr Lee Kuan Yew to the people here. Astounding crowds who braved the unrelenting Singapore blaze. I can’t imagines queues of 5 hours let alone 10. But that is the level of respect they have for our first PM.

Just didn’t feel right to blog about anything else right now. This week seems to me of tremendous historical significance and I want to observe and record that fact. And yes I can’t help but feel sentimental too. Especially watching and hearing old speeches and scenes on TV. It’s hard to witness the end of an era. Reminds me of the fragility of life.
