Life is a Mixtape

“This collection is a magnificent necklace, every article in it, a pearl. Ignatius embraces local life to the max, but keeps an eagle’s perspective. Jolting our memories at every turn, we will appreciate ourselves differently afterwards.” - Otto Fong, author, cartoonist, playwright and blogger

“From a flood of memories and pop culture commentaries to national issues, his essays are articulate, warm and relatable to the times that defined us. Re-reading his columns in this collection thrills like a long overdue meeting with a confiding friend. Insightful, occasionally poignant but never without humour. Life is a Mixtape is a charmer.” - Ng Peng Hui, managing director, Warner Bros Singapore

LKY ON GOVERNANCE, MANAGEMENT, LIFE
“Why did I insist on Singaporeans all needing to learn their mother tongue? For the Chinese, why did I insist that they learn Chinese? ...
Because I believe language transmits values. Learning the Chinese language means imbibing the core items of Chinese history, tradition and culture. The Confucianist values of loyalty, honour, discipline, filial piety, emphasis on family, respect for authority – all vital for nation-building and for cultivated citizens with honourable personal attributes. These values will provide cultural ballast to our people as we adjust to a fast-changing world.”

– Mr Lee Kuan Yew,
quoted in My Lifelong Challenge:
Singapore’s Bilingual Journey

Politician, prime minister, statesman, husband, father: Lee Kuan Yew was all these things and more in a life spanning 91 years and a political career that lasted more than half a century. In that time, he and the other first-generation leaders of Singapore catapulted the country from the backwaters of the Third World into the ranks of the First.

This three-volume set brings together quotations from Lee’s speeches, books and interviews that sum up his views on subjects ranging from the political to the personal. LKY on Governance, Management, Life: A Collection of Quotes from Lee Kuan Yew serves both as an introduction to the man widely regarded as Singapore's founding father, as well as a reminder of what he stood and fought for. It is the most accessible compendium ever published on the man, capturing his most piquant aphorisms and views. For every section, relevant photographs of Mr Lee are also featured alongside the quotes.

MAJULAH MOMENTS 50 YEARS OF NATIONAL DAY PARADES
A collaboration between Straits Times Press and Singapore Post

In 1966, a year after it separated from Malaysia on August 9, 1965, Singapore celebrated its first National Day as an independent nation. This year, in 2016, the country holds its 50th National Day Parade. To commemorate the occasion, Straits Times Press, in collaboration with Singapore Post, is launching Majulah Moments: 50 Years of National Day Parades – the first of a series of exclusive postcard books featuring 20 iconic moments from past parades. Within the book are unforgettable vintage images of crowds braving the pouring rain as the contingent marched through the streets during the first parade of 1968, soldiers standing ramrod straight under the scorching sun during the 1993 parade, and the young and old bonding over the Kallang Wave in 2015. They reflect the special moments and collective joy of a people proud to be identified as Singaporeans.

Only 1,500 of these limited edition Majulah Moments postcard books will be printed. Each book contains 20 postcards with local pre-paid postage. Grab your copy now.

About the NDP Postcard Book
