    Default Aranda Lee Kuan Yew marking the passing of an era in Singapore

    As a proud Singaporean, I feel I should share these special hybrids created in honour of our founding father (who just passed away) and his wife.

    Thanks, Jervis - a sad time for us but an incredible legacy we have to treasure indeed - including the emphasis and investment in creating the garden city and our wonderful National Parks! Living in HK, this is something I miss a lot!

    thanks for sharing this.
    His departure is a great lost to Singapore, he had brought up Singapore so much and may his legacy continue on
