The vision for this book and others like it was born a long time ago in my living room. I was going through a series of videos on Pioneers of Singapore when I realized the lack of heritage materials for young children in Singapore.

If we cannot remember our roots, we will never develop our identity.

When Mr. Lee Kuan Yew passed away in March 2016, this book finally came together, line upon line in quick succession, trying to capture the spirit, the passion, the integrity of one man, his life and his vision. For the past two years, it has been in the making, picture by picture and word by word. Many hands and hearts have been involved in seeing it to fruition.

I had the great pleasure of presenting it on 27 August at my book launch.”One Man and His Life” is out! You can order a copy through this website or drop me a line at A growing list of bookstores can be found here. Stay tuned and see you soon!One Man and His Life
