Mount Vernon was a sea of white yesterday as hundreds of mourners dressed in white showed up to pay their last respects to Indonesian tycoon Liem Sioe Liong.
At the Choa Chu Kang Cemetery, where he was buried at 2pm, the mourners numbered more than 1,000.
More than 30 buses, each carrying about 30 passengers, and a large convoy of mainly luxury cars made their way to the cemetery.
It was the biggest funeral he had seen, said an employee at the cemetery.
Mr Liem, at one time the richest man in Indonesia, would have turned 96 next month. He died here on June 10.
