What’s inside the Red Box?
“Some curious children see a crowd waiting for a man. He looks familiar and they recall seeing him carrying a Red Box everywhere he goes. What could the contents be, they wondered. After some twists and turns, they finally managed to open the box. Alas! Its contents were far from what they had imagined it to be.”
This story is inspired by Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and his Red Box which he used while he was in political office. It has become a symbol of his unwavering passion and dedication to Singapore.
