Give kids early start in bilingualism: Lee Kuan Yew
Lee Kuan Yew gets a head start on celebrating his own birthday. ST:
Although he was feeling unwell, former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew yesterday continued his perfect record of turning up at every National Day dinner of his Tanjong Pagar ward.
Mr Lee, who turns 90 next month, was feeling weak yesterday but refused to miss the dinner with his residents.
While there, he then went through the entire planned programme, which included delivering a 10-minute speech.
Mr Lee’s effort was clearly appreciated by the gathering of 900 people who broke out into loud cheers and applause when he arrived.
