d other good Dr

Postby Way2GO » Fri Jun 08, 2012 9:55 pm

TCB was known as d gud dr of Ama Keng
He was well loved n he rightly deserved so.

There’s another in Balestier.
Whatever his ideology, he had d ppl at heart.
Served d poor n underprivileged without reservations
He passed away 5 days ago,
Nary a word of his passing in dis forum :shrug: :(
VB paid tribute to him,
Hah VB, u were a bright spark,
But how ur star has dimmed. :sad:

There's a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

Heavenly hurt it gives us;
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the meanings are.

None may teach it anything,
'Tis the seal, despair,-
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the air.

When it comes, the landscape listens,
Shadows hold their breath;
When it goes, 't is like the distance
On the look of death.

- Emily Dickinson

Eh, got a shock leh :yikes:

The only doctor I know who has a clinic in Balestier is our family doctor. Thought it was him. Then I realized, unlike his sibling, he is not 'high profile.'

You talk in riddles again, my friend :smile:

VB = Vivian Balakrishnan???

and the doc is ? ....

Sorry, I donch read the local news. Usually DH fills me in. But this time, he was stumped :?

My family knew him. He was a wonderful man who lived life with zest after his release. I used to see him in the estate as a small child; he would be larger than life, joking and talking to people. To me, he did not let his years in detention embitter him. May his family find comfort in knowing he was greatly respected by the people around him.
