SINGAPORE - Residents of Moulmein can leave their good wishes for former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew at Pek Kio Community Centre (CC), which has designated a corner for well-wishers.
This comes after similar areas were set up at the Singapore General Hospital, where Mr Lee lies critically ill; Tanjong Pagar Community Club, which is located in the constituency where Mr Lee is an MP; and Teck Ghee Community Club in Ang Mo Kio, where Mr Lee's son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, is an MP.
More than 100 people have dropped by the Pek Kio CC to leave notes and gifts for Mr Lee since the area was set up on Saturday night, said a spokesman for the CC on Sunday.
The well-wishers' corner at Pek Kio CC is open from 9am to 10pm. Visitors can sign and write messages for Mr Lee on a large banner hanging in the corner.
