Who is this Kwa Geok Choo?

with 3 comments

For one day now, I’ve been reading news about this Kwa Geok Choo who passed away yesterday. Does anyone know who she is to deserve to have her wake placed in Sri Temasek, in the official state residence? Ling Siew May, possibly the wife of the most respected Singaporean President ever, had her wake in the President’s home – when he was still in office. I certainly don’t remember Ling Siew May getting any kind of media coverage like what this Kwa Geok Choo lady did.

Who on earth is her husband by the way? He’s so shameless as to use the state’s premises to place the body of his wife – someone who’s not ever held any political office in Singapore – i in the Istana. Even Ong Teng Cheong showed more dignity in his obvious grief.

  1. I found that Sri Temasek is the official residence of the Prime Minister. Perhaps in this light having the wake there is not so offensive afterall?

      OFFICIAL residence of the Prime Minister means that his PRIVATE matters [like the death of his family members] are not supposed to be held there. If it were a former political leader it would be more understandable.

      Note that when Ong Teng Cheong was president, his wife’s wake was held at his private home.

  2. When others like CSJ was accused of some petty mistakes, he was publicly admonished as dishonest and called a liar even before he was found guilty.

    Remember the SIA plane ? Are we having double standards or what ?
