Unseen Photos of the Lee Family

The Straits Times has featured some interesting photos of Singapore’s leader, Lee Kuan Yew showing him in a different light from the stern unflinching persona we are used to. I never realized that Lee Kuan Yew married in secret or that Mrs Lee was 3 years older than him. How romantic!  What I love is that he clearly admired her and she was truly his equal.

The Prime Minister of Singapore was quite a cute little boy and it looks like his parents doted on him.

I really liked this portrait of the Lees looking soft, like any other indulgent grandparent, with their grandkids.

    It’s so much nicer to see them in this way. It makes me feel a little closer to them, instead of the strict, stern, pragmatism all the time.
