Just heard that former Singapore premier Lee Kuan Yew is seriously ill.
The 89-year old was said to be suffering from serious urinary problems and other complications.
It was said that Lee had been suffering several bouts of serious illness over the past months but his current health problem seems to be the worst.
It was however not yet known whether the Istana or Lee's family will make any public announcement soon on the condition of the former long serving leader.
Sources in Singapore said Lee's health had actually started to deteriorate after the death of his wife Madam Kwa Geok Chew two years ago at the age of 89.
The couple must be true soulmates.
Despite the news blackout on Lee's current condition, it was learnt that preparations are being made in the event the long time patriach of Singapore could not recover from his ailment.
Personally, I hope Lee will recover. The Malaysia-Singapore love-hate relations would never be the same again without him around.
