Funeral of Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Suituapui was asking me if i attended the funeral of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.  Newspapers, website, etc.  has the route in which the cortege will passed by for the State Funeral in University Cultural Centre.

I did not arrived early as i went to Church in the morning.  Usually i do not have the habit to check the weather forecast about the weather.  When i arrived at 12.30pm, it was raining very heavy, with me is only an umbrella and i did not bring raincoat.


There were already many people there, but i manage to stand in one spot and catch the last glimpse of the cortege pass-by.


Crowds on the opposite side of the road


Some were on the void deck of the flats
