#thankyouLKYTuesday, March 31, 2015
Last week has been an eventful and a sad week for whole nation, Singapore. One week ago, our founding father of Singapore, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, passed on. It was a shocking news to me when I woke up on last Monday's morning and saw the news on my phone. I didn't know why I felt sad then, when I didn't know him personally. However, I realised that we would not be what we are and where we are now, had it not been for him. Had he not build this great and successful nation, my family would probably be in Malaysia and I would not be where I am now, receiving good education and living already-good life. We, the people who are living in Singapore, get to travel around Singapore without needing to worry about bad things which might happen to us. And, that’s FREEDOM. Had it not been for him and his strong firm, I wouldn’t had been able to realise and pursue my dreams. Look at around us. Look at what we have. Look. Then, think about those people living in poor countries where they even afford food or water. We’re fortunate, right? I hope that we will all stop complaining about living in Singapore, which Mr. Lee Kuan Yew spent his life, so much of it, building this country, even though it’s ranked first in being most expensive city in the world. He even elevated Singapore from a Third World to a First World nation in one generation. The reason I write all these is because I really wanted to express my gratitude. Even though I am not a Singaporean, I have been growing up, living and studying in here since before I was a year old. There’s one I am upset about. Why is it that after he passed on, only then we realised how great man he was and how much he went through to build this great nation and finally made it successful? It’s just sad. But, I am glad that many Singaporeans stay united during whole of last week and even queuing up to pay their final respects. I hope that Singaporeans will always remain united, even after the period of mourning. Oh yes, one more thing before I type about another thing. I truly respect Mr. Lee Kuan Yew’s eldest son, Mr. Lee Hsien Loong. For delivering his speech even though he had to hold back his tears when it’s his OWN father who passed on. Yet, he could not cry. Deepest condolences to PM Lee and his family.
"I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life."Rest In Peace, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. You will always be remembered by us; the great man who built our country from the ground up.
In this next paragraph, firstly, the tone of this may differ from what I typed earlier on. I would like to blog about photo shoot I had last week on Friday and it was really great experience. I have really definitely learnt a lot from this person, who is a fashion blogger, I was shooting. Check out the photos I took of her with her camera which is EOS 5D Mark III.

Who Am I?
Hello, you can call me Evelyn. I am currently pursuing Diploma in Computer Engineering at Temasek Polytechnic (AY13/14). Also a photography enthusiast. I am mostly into portrait, modelling and fashion photography. However, I don't mind new challenges as I am open to them such as, maybe, art. I have done few collaborations with few clients. You can look at my portfolio which can be found in some of my blog posts. Having passion for photography since young, I would like to note that I am still learning and I would gladly love to learn new more things about photography.
