The Story of Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Cosplay
Hello everyone, I am Stephanie Snowheart, the owner of Cosfest. I would like to tell you a story about Cosplay and Mr Lee Kuan Yew. In 2007, the Singapore Cosplay Club organised a cosplay event for Mr Lee Kuan Yew at the Tanjong Pagar's Town Council Orchard Fiesta. That was my first time and only encounter with the legendary Mr Lee Kuan Yew. I received a call, notifying me "MMLee would like to shake your hand at the event" Of course I felt honored. On the day of the event, I was introduced to MMLee. He would give me a smile that I would never forget. "Oh! There's such a thing in Singapore?" he chuckles as he shakes my hands happily. "Yes, I said. It's been really fun doing this so far!" I replied him. "Keep it up!" the MMLee Kuan Yew gives us a firm encouragement. "I have a lot of plans for the future and I will carry them out" the MMLee beams at me, like a proud father. Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, for giving us a country where Cosplay and cosplayers can walk the streets freely and safely. This man who have loved life and Singapore so dearly. Thank you for supporting Cosplay.
