The Lighter Side: Likuan U and Lee Kuan Yew

With apology to the late Prime Minister who made Singapore a modern city state.

Filipinos are fond of witty expressions. This is one of them - a road sign along Quezon Avenue near the Lung Center of the Philippines, Diliman, QC. I saw a similar one near the Fort. Creative minds can go far, and trivial, too.

For those who have no inkling of the homonym similarity, Lee Kuan Yew is Singapore's living legend - father of this modern city state. You pronounce his name the same way you read in Pilipino, 
U-turn.

By the way, somebody has removed the sign. I miss it now whenever I make a u-turn in that busy intersection. ~
