Couple renovates 4-room Punggol HDB flat to look like interior of LKY’s 38 Oxley Road home property

I stumbled upon this post and this really amaze me....

One thing to note; seems like this picture is photoshopped; superimposed a couple onto the original photograph of LKY's living room.

Nonetheless, I wonder if our founding father is still alive....what would he say?

 A Singaporean couple have renovated the interior of of their four-room HDB flat in Punggol to look exactly like Lee Kuan Yew’s 38 Oxley Road home, complete with 1940s wooden furniture, tiled flooring and a clay urn that holds water to be used for bathing with a plastic scoop. The couple said this is the ultimate tribute they can pay to Lee Kuan Yew in honour of his legacy. To further pay their respects to the first prime minister of Singapore, they declared their intention to raise their one-year-old son to be the next prime minister of the country to follow in Lee Kuan Yew’s footsteps: “We feel that most Singaporeans are not going far enough with their words and deeds for Lee Kuan Yew.” “To show that we are not like that, we even named our son Lee Zhong Li in honour of our founding father. We are going to put him through the paces with multiple language classes and make sure he goes to Cambridge to study law.” Interior designers and home renovators said there have been no shortage of such queries these past few weeks to customise Singapore homes with Lee Kuan Yew’s favourite spartan look. One interior designer, Pai Mah Pi, said: “In our current climate, there is no such thing as going too far to show your respect and gratitude to Lee Kuan Yew.”
