    Lee Kuan Yew RIP :(

    Singapore's first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew dead - World - DAWN.COM

    Arguably the greatest Asian figure of the 20th century departs. RIP

    What a legend
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Lived in Singapore as an ex pat for 3 years growing up. I believe at the time he was still an adviser to the government.

    What an incredible mind. A visionary for sure.
