9 Aug 2015 – My Birth-Country
Appreciations to all for sharing these interesting links –
Many of the pix in this link below are still vivid in the memory!
My admiration and respects for LKY and the PAP for building up SIN. Today it is one of the richest countries in the world with the same ruling party for half a century, what will be of the next half century?????
There are 50 different designs on one side of the bag and the map of SIN is the one I was given – very appropriate, maps are an important part of my life journey!

SINGAPORE – What a journey it has been. From the “moment of anguish” when Singapore separated from Malaysia, the first generation of leaders convinced the pioneer generation that Singapore could succeed as a sovereign country.
Together, these lions and a lion-hearted people built a nation through a lifetime of unwavering determination. After them, younger generations picked up the baton and took Singapore further…
In fond memories of LKY – the person I will think of most today. Thank you to LKY and SIN would not be today if not for your leadership and your group of people. You are truly missed but may you RIP…
And some of my favourite pix for the NDP downloaded from various postings and sites –
