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.
However, with the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games coming to town and the profuse spamming of all things SG50, it seems like the nation’s ready for some closure.
But you won’t be fully ready until you’ve seen Gov.sg’s ‘A Tribute To Public Officers’ (posted 4 June):
Now wasn’t that the sweetest 5 minutes ever?
Best of ‘A Tribute To Public Officers’
Now you know why you didn’t go hungry, didn’t faint from the heat, didn’t catch a cold in the rain, and had your first late night train ride ever.
Because while you were sleeping, they were working.
Public servants were awaken from a night’s of sleep by phone calls heralding the bad news.
And attended a meeting held by the Special Forces Operation Command (SFOC) even before dawn.
Barriers broken between different public agencies
“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
Here are some buff lord soldiers transporting the sheltered tents you waited comfortably in at the Padang queue:

This is another soldier showing visitors the way:
And this two-crab placing a hand of comfort on an elderly man:
Different civil servants put their housekeeping skills from BMT to good use cleaning Mr. Lee’s gun carriage:
A cleaner picks up trash from the queuing grounds after hours:
Ah, the beauty of teamwork.
To the public servants who truly embody The Singapore Spirit, Singapore thanks you:
