ladyironchef "Freedom is being able to walk on the streets unmolested in the wee hours in the morning, to be able to leave one’s door open and not fear that one would be burgled.

Freedom is the woman who can ride buses and trains alone; freedom is not having to avoid certain subway stations after night falls. Freedom is knowing our children can go to school without fear of drugs, or being mowed down by some insane person with a gun.

Freedom is knowing that we are not bound by our class, our race, our religion, and we can excel for the individuals that we are – the freedom to accomplish.
Freedom is living in one of the least corrupt societies in the world, knowing that our ability to get things done is not going to be limited by our ability to pay someone. Freedom is fresh air and clean streets.

These are the freedoms that Singaporeans have. And we have all of these, these liberties, whilst also being one of the richest countries in the world. There was no trade-off. Not for us." - Calvin Cheng #ProudToBeSingaporean

  •   rayavelino I admire Singapore. I truly do. But the freedom mentioned is pretty one sided. There are still a lot limitations. 2d
  •   shaft1 What about freedom of speech? Is it a price to pay for all of these? 2d
  •   monanarwani Try living in a third world country with garbage traffic corruption no regard for law and crime where u can't walk on the road it is then u respect what lives Singaporeans have and what LKY did for Singapore 2d

ladyironchef As our Nation mourns the passing of our beloved Founding Father Lee Kuan Yew, it is heartening to know that in spite of our differences in opinions and beliefs, Singaporeans come together during this difficult time and stand together strongly as one as we celebrate the life and legacy of the late Mr Lee.

Mr Lee was selfless and he led a fulfilling life to build this beautiful Garden City we are so privileged to call Home, and we owe him an eternal gratitude for all that we have in Singapore today. We will turn fifty this year, and there are no words to describe our grief and sorrow of his untimely passing.

Easy access to water and electricity, crime-free streets, the ability to read and write, colourful ethnic cultures...

  •   nashhyyy @simonhuge is right, we should always be objective in whatever we percieve. There are no absolutes in life. Lky wasnt perfect but indeed intrumental in the development of our nation. He did what he needed to for the upmost stability of the country. Well if we can credit him with everything that went right, why cant we do that with what didnt? 3d

  •   simonhuge Thank you @nashhyyy that's the only thing i wanted to say and you found the right words to do so, thanks again x 2d
  •   simonhuge @hweemin i'm gay you racist little silly singaporean woman haha... 2d
  •   hweemin @simonhuge Don't know how you can drag being gay into racism.... Coming from a country that is almost homogenous, what do you know about racism. And see what I mean about the name-calling? Huge is your ego and huge is your ignorance and stupidity 2d
  •   biltsz it's not about being objective or not. i didn't say all that LKY had done was right. if i wasn't clear, what i initially wanted to say is that there's always a time for everything. and right now is not the time to criticise the one who built singapore. what that @simonhuge prick did was actually telling us not to honour LKY just because he did some wrong things during his lifetime. that's equivalent to someone saying you're not allowed to acknowledge your parents just because they commit some wrong doings in their lifetime. what kind of rubbish is this. he is being a whiny little bitch by complaining about other country's politics at this timing. Rude. 2d
  •   justsayso82 I've learnt so much about the world from this debate. Lol. 2d

ladyironchef Dining out in Melbourne is actually quite expensive, so we were pleasantly surprised by Dondon's offerings of donburi. Everything here is priced under AUD$10, and you get a huge and generous bowl of rice and topping. The beef rice bowl totally lived up to expectations. At AUD$6.30, it is not only super affordable and also very filling. This would be my go-to place for a simple and good meal if I were staying in the city. 5d

ladyironchef Huge and hearty portions at affordable prices - that is what Menya Ramen is known for. Among the many options on the menu, the gyutandon (ox tongue rice bowl) has achieved legendary status in the hearts of Melbournians.

Ask anyone about Menya and everyone would recommend the gyutandon. It was indeed excellent, with a super generous portion of meat. But if we were to nitpick, it would be that the rice was too dry.

Menya is a good no-frills eatery with most of the dishes priced under AUD$10. If we were living in Melbourne, we'd be eating here regularly.
