Good Bye Mr Lee.
Sunday was the last day we as Singaporeans say our good byes to our Founding Father.
As such - I didn't want to miss the only last time I can say my thanks and good byes to him. So off we went to the tribute centre in Jurong East - gave my respects and thanks.
Then - we went over to the University Cultural Centre - at the Clementi Road- at about 2 hours before he was supposed to come. And the best part - it rained. It rained so heavily and it rained long. It was like along with us - the heavens were also crying or something.
It rained twice the 2 hours we were there. There were so many people waiting along side us. And I read later on - there were 100,000 people waiting all the way from Padang to the UCC. And no one left the spot they reserved for 2 hours.

It was a beautiful day. I am really glad - that I managed to finally say my thanks to him as he passed us by. A really sad and emotional day
