Dear A.S.S. Editor
To the guy who have spent more than $80,000 on collecting Singapore military paraphernalia, until almost converting his Punggol flat into a SAF museum of sorts, good job! This is how you pay your respects to the Singapore story and history, not renaming some new museum as Syonan!
Mr Alvin Lee, a 35 year old teacher, has been collecting the military paraphernalia for over two decades now. Among his collections are the first generation Temasek Green SAF combat uniform to the currently-used one with a pixelated design. Although he does keep and collect military stuff from other countries such as Japan, Germany and UK, he indicated that the most important ones are the Singapore military stuff, as he wants to keep Singapore’s military history alive.
This is how you should do it. Although we must remember our past hardships, we must always cherish Singapore history and be proud to display them. Not to honour and glorify some Japanese name given to Singapore.
