What advice would you give your daughter about falling in love?

The late Mr & Mrs Lee Kuan Yew

While researching for materials for the earlier article titled “Lawyer Kwa Kim Li: I did not prepare LKY’s last will“, TRE stumbled across a very touching video made by Cong, on “Big Ears”.

Although it concerns the famiLEE, it wasn’t about the current dispute between the siblings, but about the late Mdm Kwa Geok Choo, when she was alive, when the famiLEE was one.

It was supposedly a letter Mdm Kwa had written to her daughter, Dr Lee Wei Ling on the subject of “love” – a loving mother’s advice to her daughter.

With the famiLEE feud dragging on for days now, Singaporeans, rightly noted by Law Minister K Shanmugam, are “sick and tired” of the never-ending stories.

It is time to take a break and what best way than to take a few minutes to remember and honour the late Mdm Kwa Geok Choo, affectionately known as the “Mother of Singapore” by most Singaporeans – the woman who stood by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew till the very end?

    Never marry a MIW or a PAP running dog. Our ancestors will never rest in peace. Better live a normal life rather than having a husband who is cursed every day by citizens.

    Many were “sick and tired” of the never-ending Aljunied Town Council stories. But the gov persist. Why? Because integrity in public service cannot be compromised. It is the right thing to do.

    hahahaaha…it looks like the advice given from the mother to the daughter is a breeding program. LKY wanted smart, healthy and tall from his generation….hmmmm…I wonder what happened to the first wife of LHL and their children. I felt sorry for the first wife who must be under enormous pressure to take her own life…ooospps..error.. “heart attack”.
    Remember, the phrase, behind every strong man there is a stronger woman, behind every evil man there is a more evil woman. The wife of LKY knew of operation coldstore and operation spectrum. So please do not be fooled by her silence. She could have been the silent killer.

  • PATRIOT of TEMESAK:

    Mother advise daughter on her marriage to her father LKY…CONDITIONAL…like all his AGENDA in Life..to suit HIMSELF and its always I first all else second…..”Love the woman you MARRY and NOT MARRY the woman you love”

    If you seek a public life with an agenda than by all means follow the ways of LKY & Wife “A Facet NOT a REALITY” living a life of Lies

    OFFSPRINGS turn out the way he planned it according to his AGENDA..tall & brainy

    BUT….look at the end result

    Eldest…. married and wife died after the birth of albino son..remarries and the rest is HISTORY as it is TOLD today in the famiLEE Feud???

    Second…. married the woman he love and having a blissful marriage with a BRILLIANT son with no political agenda NOW working @ Harvard the TOP of the HEAP in Tertiary Education

    Third….filial daughter NOT much of a looker but stuck to her principles a blessing or a curse??? only she knows and she WILL live with it “respect”

    Poor LWL did have a suitor once. But he was not Chinese, and papa did no approve because of his genetic bais. Mama made sure guy would no longer be in the company. And that’s that.

    Anyone remember the lift that ho ching set up in lky’s house so that lky can take the lift instead of the stairs & how lky refused to use it.

    It can be seemed that lky utterly dislike ho ching or he dislike the lift.
    Either way lky just hates it, the lift installed by ho ching or the installer herself. Could be both.
    Note also the lky took his idiotic son lhl as executor of his estate in 2011.
    Could it be made after the said forced meeting lhl made lky meeting with the cabinet to talk about the old house.
    Remember lky was totally passed off with lhl then. That could be why lky took lhl name out.
    What a ness

    —————————————————————————–

    Is it true that Singaporeans are “sick and tired” of this saga?
    Or is this big arrogant mouth trying to misrepresent the thoughts of the public. And hoping that by saying such, everyone will be influenced to put it out of their mind. A subtle way to say that those who wants an investigation or some form of inquiry are not to be entertained?

    The PAP is trying to frame the discussion through the release of such statement. What they are trying to say is, this is a non issue and nobody cares.
    Wake-up!

    Francis Seow called her Iron Dragon lady. Then in lky obiturary to her , recall he said something about she was the one to tell him not to trust lim chin siong who was subsequently amongst those arrested under Operation Coldstore n detained without trial for years. Isnt she as dangerous as him”.

    LKY wanted lhl to remarry a stronger woman n he made the “stronger woman” head of TH to bcome among the topmost powerful woman in the world. Now after lky died , his 2 younger siblings accused the “stronger woman”, jus a wife of big brother, meddled with state affairs. Who ask their ah papa made her TH head , so she think she is emperor dowager likr that?

    Seems like the parts are taken out of context – to use a usual PAP ruse.
