  • This is the Lee Kuan Yew eulogy the nation did not hear

    After the formalities of the Lying in State and the State Funeral Service, in this final hour Papa is with his family, his friends of a lifetime, his immediate staff who served him loyally and well, his security team who kept him safe and sound, and his medical team who took such good care of him. Actually, Papa was the head of two families.  As the eldest son, from a young age he was effectively head of his household, helping his mother – Mak – to bring up his younger brothers and sister.  He remained close to them all his life.  To my uncles and aunts, he was always “Kor”, never “Harry”. Papa made it a point to attend the Chinese New Year reunions of the extended Lee family every year, even till last year, to catch up with his siblings, to meet his nephews and nieces, and later grand-nephews and grand-nieces.  I think there are a few great grand nephews and nieces but I am not sure if they are here.

  • China's jailing of man who grew beard 'absurd'

    A six-year prison sentence reportedly given to a man in China's mainly Muslim Xinjiang region for growing a beard was "absurd", an overseas group said Monday as accounts of the penalty disappeared online. It exposes China's hostile attitude and crisis of governance." He added: "If a Chinese person grows a beard, it is a personal fashion he is allowed to choose freely. "China's goal is to use judicial means to force Uighurs to accept Chinese people's traditions and give up their own way of life." On Sunday the China Youth Daily reported that a court in Xinjiang's desert oasis city of Kashgar sentenced a 38-year-old Uighur man to six years in jail for growing a beard, while his wife was given two years for veiling herself.
