 Some Singaporeans I spoke to at the reception after the cremation:

Desmond Tan, 19: JBJ is an inspiring figure. It is a pity that I do not have the chance to meet him when he is still alive.

Yong C L, 44: JBJ has done a lot for Singaporeans when he was a MP during the 1980s. The PAP borrowed many of his ideas such as the Town Councils we have today, do you know that ?

Kumathy, 23: There is only one JBJ. After him, I do not think there will anybody who is passionate enough to sacrifice so much for his beliefs. God bless his soul !

Mohammad Khari, 40: He was always seen in the ward (Anson) even during the weekends. Though he is a lawyer, he never carry any airs about him. He is truly a MP of the rakyat.

Gan S E, 60: We all know Cheng San was fixed. The PAP cannot afford to lose a GRC. It was very real then as many of us are damned pissed with the (PAP) MPs. They are really a useless bunch, jiak liao bee ! When the results are announced, we couldn’t believe it ! Every one of our neighbors say they will vote for JBJ.

Christina Lee, 36: JBJ has given his best for Singapore. We don’t deserve his love…….(burst into tears)
