A lot can be said about Singapore’s most polarizing leader, Lee Kuan Yew. Ask any local and you’ll get a very passionate thesis that is either strongly for or against him.
But as a tourist, I only have good things to say about Singapore’s founding father. Singapore is the city I adore because of him. I feel safer in the little red dot than I do in my own country without it being so far removed from the familiarity of the Asian culture. And for this, I will always remember Mr. Lee Kuan Yew with fondness.
The well-planned, beautifully designed city-state is such a refreshing refuge.
I wish you a peaceful rest, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew. Thank you for the Singapore I adore.
