We didn’t know how zai the public officers who served during national mourning were…. until now

We also didn’t know Gov.sg had a sentimental side.

Anyway, it has been 2 mournful months since the passing of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.

But you won’t be fully ready until you’ve seen Gov.sg’s ‘A Tribute To Public Officers’ (posted 4 June):

“Many agencies were involved in that message (about free train services) transmission. They (the public) don’t really care if you’re SAF, SPF, LTA or NEA. They see us as one public service.”

– Deputy Commissioner (Operations) Lau Peet Meng, SPF
