The mood was subdued as the crowd waited outside the Istana. Mr Lee Kuan Yew would be leaving the Istana for the very last time, making his final journey to the Parliament House. It was mostly silent with the occasional murmurings amongst those who came with companions.
As the cortege exited the gates of the Istana, the crowd broke into applause & shouts of "Lee Kuan Yew!", "Grandfather of Singapore!", "Thank you Mr Lee!"
I couldn't help but cry a silent tear & wished this great statesman a final farewell.
Rest well, dear Sir....you've earned it.
