SPH launches bilingual pictorial book on Lee Kuan Yew’s life


More Lee worship, as always printed by SPH.  ST:

A bilingual pictorial book that chronicles the life of Mr Lee Kuan Yew was launched on Friday, to commemorate his 90th birthday on Sept 16.

Titled Lee Kuan Yew: A Life in Pictures, the 268-page book contains a curated collection of about 480 photographs.

It includes more than 100 never-before-published pictures, some from Mr Lee’s personal and family albums that capture private moments between Singapore’s first prime minister and his late wife Kwa Geok Choo, as well as their three children.

The book is published by Straits Times Press, the book publishing subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings. A copy was presented to Mr Lee at his Istana office on Friday by SPH CEO Alan Chan.

    Dear Founding Father of Modern Singapore Mr. Lee Kuan Yew,

    Here’s wishing you a happy and blessed birthday.

    Happy Birthday, Special Treasure
    God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
    a person who loves, who cares,
    who sees a person’s need and fills it,
    who encourages and lifts people up,
    who spends energy on others
    rather than himself,
    someone who touches each life he enters,
    and makes a difference in the world,
    because ripples of kindness flow outward
    as each person you have touched, touches others.
    Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
    because you are a special treasure
    for all that you’ve done.
    May the love you have shown to others
    return to you, multiplied.
    I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
    and many, many more,
    so that others have time to appreciate you
    as much as I do.

    Happy birthday:
