Lee Kuan Yew

Singapore's most respected statesman, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew celebrated his 86th birthday, yesterday 16 Sep 2009.

I would like to wish Mr Lee Kuan Yew a Happy Birthday!

Mr Lee has transformed Singapore from a swamp land into one of the best homes in the world and a model of learning for many countries,all within a short span of 30 years!

His achievements are unparalleled and truly outstanding. However, no matter how Singapore has achieved over these past years, Singapore would still need to keep up with the times, the mind-boggling changes in this internet era to stay competitive against all challenges. There is fear that the younger generation of today have become too contented, comfortable and no longer have the thirst and hunger to achieve and compete.

There is also fear that the youths of today have become more self-centred and have forgotten all about the great effort needed to build Singapore into what it is today by our founding fathers.

Therein lies the continous search of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his team to continue searching for the best talents to lead Singapore in the coming decades after he and his cadres have stepped down. The hunt for the next Prime Minister is ongoing. The next Prime Minister is most likely to be inducted into the team come the next General Election. The General Election may be coming very soon, in my opinon. I believe the General Election may be held as early as early next January 2010.
