      Before Singaporeans get carried away over-glorifying MM Lee's contributions to Singapore, let me remind everyone that while it is true he played a part in transforming Singapore to where it is now, the biggest improvement came about in the economic arena whose contributions came mainly from Singapore's early pioneers, Dr Goh Keng Swee, Mr Hon Sui Sen and the UN-sent Dutchman Dr Albert Winsemius. MM Lee happened to have a good team helping him formulate and implement policies.
       
      And while he is "voted" one of Singapore's 7 wonders (at No 7), I hope such over-glorification will not immortalise him into "The Greatest and Most Patriotic Singaporean" without taking into consideration his role during World War 2 when compared to war hero Lim Bo Seng (see below for extracts from Wikipedia)

      MPs should tell it like it is when writing memoirs
      I READ ST, July 11th 2007, the views of Dr Chiang Hai Ding and former PAP MPs on their writing of their memoirs.
      They would refresh their memories if they read up old written materials, speeches, press cuttings, notes, letters and photos. It is worth the effort.
      MPs are important actors in determining Singapore's history. I encourage all MPs, including those who opposed the PAP, to give their accounts of the past.
      They will give a multi-dimensional view of past events and provide richness and texture to the story.
      World War II accounts, whether in books, on TV or on film, that draw on sources from all parties, the Allies, Germans, Russians and Japanese, make fascinating reading because they give a three-dimensional depth to past events.
      When writing memoirs, you are talking to posterity. Among them will be historians who will check what you write against the accounts of others. So do not shade the past.
      DON'T SHADE THE PAST
      When writing memoirs, you are talking to posterity. Among them will be historians who will check what you write against the accounts of others. So do not shade the past.
      I read Chin Peng's memoirs in English and the Plen's (Fang Chuang Pi) unfinished memoirs in Chinese.
      I respected Chin Peng, so I asked to see him when he was in Singapore.
      However, the Plen was a disappointment. He avoided the facts. Chin Peng did not.

      7 Wonders of S'pore
      People here reveal their top choices for the 'Seven Wonders of Singapore'
      By Bryna Sim
      CHINA'S got the Great Wall, India the Taj Mahal, and Singapore's got a building that looks like half a durian.
      But beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Singaporeans, when asked to name seven local wonders, beheld the Esplanade, in all its faux-fruity glory.
      To the expected astonishment of those who derided the building's design when it was first unveiled in 2002, the Esplanade was a clear winner in a Sunday Times street poll.
      It was named by 82 of about 300 people asked, trumping that other more conventional design coup - Changi Airport - which had 53 votes. Sentosa on 41 votes was next with the Merlion fourth on 38.
      The Singapore River came in fifth (15 votes), with the generic category of food in sixth spot (12 votes). Tied for seventh place were the scenic spot Mount Faber and Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew (10 votes each).
      The votes for MM Lee, who was picked by some for his founding role in Singapore , showed it wasn't only concrete and steel that made the Seven Wonders cut.
      7 Wonders of S'pore
      1 THE ESPLANADE


      'I chose the Esplanade as it is uniquely shaped, like a giant durian, right in the middle of the city.'
      MS SHARON HIEW, 27, mortgage officer
      The new 7 Wonders of the World
      THE new Seven Wonders of the World were decided by about 100 million Internet and phone voters around the world. The results were announced on July 7.

      On the list are:
      As for the Esplanade, wonder what many were thinking in plumping for it? Well, the building's unique architecture - you can say that again - and its striking appearance against the water backdrop made their mark on those polled.
      Sales manager Vincent Ng, 30, said last week: 'The Esplanade is a Singapore icon. No one can visit the place and forget about it.'
      As Esplanade chief executive Benson Puah said: 'It seems to have slowly etched itself into the community's collective consciousness. '
      The more offbeat choices included aunties selling tissue paper at various coffee shops, Singlish, 'kiasuism', 4D-Toto betting outlets and Newater.
      Undergraduate Han Xiuwen, 22, who plumped for Newater, said: 'We are probably the only country with branded recycled sewage.'

      MS TRISHA LIM, 28, full-time tutor

      MS ROSMANJA AWANG, 40, unemployed
      4 THE MERLION

      'It is linked with our country's origins - the fish part reminds me of a humble fishing village, the lion part reminds me of the name Sang Nila Utama gave us.'
      MR WESLEY TAN, 20, who has just completed national service
      5 THE SINGAPORE RIVER

      'After the Boat Quay area was revamped, the place looks more amazing than before; it brings out the vibrancy of our little island.'
      MR HERMAN SIM, 32, marketing executive
      6 FOOD

      'In Singapore, you can find food from all cultures and nations. The sheer variety is a wonder in itself.'
      MR DANIEL TAY, 29, youth worker
      7 MOUNT FABER

      'This place is the closest that you can get to a scenic and romantic "mountain-top" experience.'
      MR HARPREET SINGH, 24, undergraduate

      'MM Lee is the father of Singapore . Without him, we would not be where we are today.'
