Month earlier, my ah ma passed away. As per chinese traditions we held our funeral at our HDB void deck for a weekend.
I remembered very clearly on that Sunday night, Low Thia Khiang dropped by unannounced alone. For the record, we did not know him personally.
Mr Low paid his respects to my ah ma, signed the condolence book and spent an hour plus talking to my family. No media, no reporters around at all. Just himself.
This is what I call sincerity, and for that we are extremely grateful. He wasn’t wayang-ing or trying to score publicity points unlike so many other PAP MPs.
For that, Mr Low, you can count on my entire family to vote for you in the upcoming GE.
