AK had been in touch with me since my early days as an educator. Although I was in overseas for some time, he never failed to send me EDMs on AKT's programs. (Till this date, even when I was back in teaching, he still sent me the EDMs to reach out to people.) That is how I got in touch with him again when I was back in Singapore in LKYFB. Through my conversations with him, I found that he was a very down to earth person and a wonderful human being. I am glad that I had an opportunity to work with a humble being who was very easy going, jovial and always presents himself with a smile. He has this positive energy which makes him a people's person.
I recall the time where I met up with him to discuss about funding matters and can still hear him thanking me. I look back at our tele-conversations and cant help smiling that he forgot to serve me a drink while we met for a long conversation.
I am impressed at his passion for the Arts and language. He was a person who treats everyone with upmost respect and this did not change over the years.
I am pleased to see the many lives he has touched with his energy, love and care. Thank you AK for spreading love and laughter into our lives! We miss you dearly.
