How many of us take our greenery for granted? I had never seen the true beauty of the lushness of our HDB estates and public urban spaces until I started travelling to other cities. I wished I knew about the deliberate intention behind our tree-planting, the desire of our late founding Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew: that our commons should be beautiful and enjoyable no matter one’s socio-economic class. Ever since I read about the legacy behind our green city, I have never looked at a tree in Singapore the same way again.

LKY had some good ideas. Greenery is one of them!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
