S’porean family of 5 to undergo plastic surgery to look like Lee Kuan Yew as tribute

Posted on 21 March 2016

They feel that most Singaporeans have not gone far enough in respecting Lee Kuan Yew.


Declaring the need to respect the late Lee Kuan Yew and keep him in their memory for all time, a Singaporean family of five will undergo plastic surgery to look like the first prime minister of Singapore.

The family, consisting of the father, mother, son and grandparents, will all undergo plastic surgery simultaneously so they will look like the late prime minister at the same time before the one-year anniversary of his passing on March 23 and also to preserve their family resemblance.

Zhen Rong, the mother, said her family is just doing what they can to pay their respects: “Singaporeans are letting the late Lee Kuan Yew’s memory slip away barely one year into his passing”

“We know that it is difficult to embody the principles that Lee Kuan Yew espouse, so we thought it is easier to just look like him and it will remind Singaporeans that Lee Kuan Yew is still here around them today.”

Other Singaporeans who heard of this family’s decision to look like Lee Kuan Yew, said they feel heartened.

One local, Tao Nao Pai, said: “I hope the family can impress upon the current PAP members and MPs that they too need to look like Lee Kuan Yew if they wish to run Singapore in a way befitting of their founder’s legacy. That way, they can start to really be like Lee Kuan Yew.”

“But so far, they have failed, but this doesn’t take away from the fact that this is perhaps one of the better tributes this week.”
