    My opinion is that this has been going on for some time. But while the Old fart was alive, they bury it among themselves. But now that he is dead, all bets are off and its in the open. LWL has been increasingly marginalized in the last few years prior to Old Fart's death. After the death of the mother Gecko. all the assets that Gecko put in a trust were administered by her brother Lee Hsien Yang. She was not made a co-executor and I don't believe she has a much of a voice in the family fortune.

    When Old Fart was in the end stages, he had made known even publicly and I am sure to his daughter LWL (who is a medical doctor after all) that his Advance Directive was Do No Resuscitate. He had made it clear that he does not want to be hooked up to machines and kept alive like a vegetable. He just want to die. But the brother Gay Loong disobeyed this directive and prolong the life of Old fart for political gains to use in the elections. this must have irked LWL to no end, as the dear father's wishes were not respected. That the brother would make the father suffer further by dragging out as long as he can and thus having a poor quality of life, must have really pissed her off as a medical doctor and a daughter.

    She herself also went against the spirit of the father's will by continuing to live in Oxley Rise even though the father has clearly said that he wanted the house demolished and the property sold and given to 8 charities. By continuing to live in Oxley, LWL has prevented this from happening (a clause in Old fart's will allows her to do that) and thus 8 charities who could have used the money to immediately benefit thousands of people now have to wait until she moves out. This is an extremely selfish move by her. I understand from some sources that prior to the elections, she was encouraged strongly to move out by Gay Loong, so that the house can be sold. A media campaign was designed to highlight the 8 charities and how much they benefited from this gift. the PAP was planning to use this goodwill from the sale of Oxley for the what they thought would be a hard fought and narrow elections. when LWL refused to move out, Gay Loong was pissed off, further causing a schism in the relationship between the 2 siblings. Gay Loong thought he might win less then 50% of the popular vote and the sale of Oxley and it subsequent charity donation would have ensured him of some popular votes. In the end, he did not need it as he won comfortably, but the flame of discord was further fanned.

    Finally this one year death anniversary propaganda self aggrandizement and hero worship was the last straw for her. And the feud blew into the open. Anyway, that's my 2 cents on it.

    She did not. See below. LKY stated that LWL can live there as she wishes.

    Mr Lee Kuan Yew wrote in paragraph 7 of his will: “I further declare that it is my wish, and the wish of my late wife, KWA GEOK CHOO, that our house at 38 Oxley Road, Singapore 238629 (‘the House’) be demolished immediately after my death or, if my daughter, Wei Ling, would prefer to continue living in the original house, immediately after she moves out of the House. I would ask each of my children to ensure our wishes with respect to the demolition of the House be carried out. If our children are unable to demolish the House as a result of any changes in the law, rules or regulations binding them, it is my wish that the House never be opened to others except my children, their families and descendants. My view on this has been made public before and remains unchanged. My statement of wishes in this paragraph 7 may be publicly disclosed notwithstanding that the rest of my Will is private.”

    my guesstimate : it was distributed roughly this ratio :


    lky & kgc Estate -


    LHL side : 65%

    LHY side : 25% &

    LWL side : 10%

    total : 100%

    Please read it again. His will plainly says that he and his wife wants to see the house demolished immediately upon his death FIRST. That is his first preference. Or if his daughter wants to live there, she can continue to do so. This is the option. The house is to be demolished immediately after she moves out. Lets face it, LWL is a rich woman (?) and I am sure she has her pick of luxury accommodations to live in. She does not need to live in that old house. Old fart added that sentence to give face to her, but his intentions is very clear, and it is to have the house demolished ASAP if possible. And considering the proceeds of the sale was supposed to be given to 8 charities, I am sure the spirit of the will was that he hoped LWL took the hint and moved out. Otherwise, in order to prevent her from being kicked out, she was allowed to stay there.

    I am not surprised. There must have been a big money grab after the old fart died and Gay Loong made Whore Jinx take a sabbatical to kow tim the grab for assets. LWL was the big loser and hence is now bitter.

    1. Yes, and perhaps this is one of the reasons for the resentment and feud too. ;)
    2. Which crown? Do you mean which clown or clone Ah Leong should page back? :D

    inadvertently due to her intransigence and eccentricism or just a spinster's stubbornness to vacate an empty old house full of fond childhood memories, she's helping to preserve the place possibly for posterity. otherwise it would have been torn down by now. i don't think she wants the house to be torn down, thus the continued occupation, and she most likely thinks she's the self-sacrificial holdout to preserve a family legacy. she will most likely wish to live in it for the rest of her life and hoping for it to stay intact as a private family shrine forever for her to haunt in. the ultimate sinkie hantu story is starting right before our very eyes. sinkies in future will thank her for singlehandedly staying put, fighting all forces against her as she hallucinates and imagines, and keeping the oxley little shop of horrors intact for future ghost busters to infiltrate and produce video documentaries with. :D
