This strong people’s voice cannot take back CPF though.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe you can be the change you want to see in this world, are patting one another on the back and giving praise to themselves.

This after they compelled the Singapore government to backtrack, say sorry and change the name of Syonan gallery to something more innocuous after making some noise and threatening some things online.

One Singaporean, Jiak Leow Bee, said: “This episode has taught Singaporeans that we as a people still have a voice to demand for our rights and ultimately effect useless change in society.”

“Our collective bargaining power is able to make the most rudimentary of changes and make the most useless of changes.”

“Can our collective voice demand our CPF back? Can we use Hong Lim Park as a venue to get more of our rights back? Of course not.”

“We can cause a museum to change its name though. One-nil to Singapore people. Thumbs down government.”

Other locals said this is a good lesson to empower Singaporeans.

Another local, Fan Dui Dang, said: “This really shows the government listens to the people when they want them to effect changes in society that don’t matter.”

“Nothing screams ‘People’s Power!’ than changing a museum name and later going back to the polls during general election and voting for PAP.”

Singaporeans debating if it was really Lee Kuan Yew’s voice they heard.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who watched Lee Kuan Yew’s funeral carried out all afternoon, said they saw a rainbow appear over Marina Barrage at the conclusion of the procession on Sunday, March 29, 2015.

This led to scores of Singaporeans to post on Facebook photos of the rainbow and an account of what happened.

In many of these posts, Singaporeans said they heard a loud booming voice accompany the rainbow’s appearance, saying something along the lines of “I will take care of you all!”

One Singaporean, Cai Hong, said she saw the rainbow with her own eyes and heard the voice with her own ears: “It was a magical moment. Almost as if it was surreal.”

“I thought it was a pretty Care Bear moment, but I know I heard the voice of Lee Kuan Yew ring out across Singapore.”

Other Singaporeans, however, were more sceptical about the social media posts.

One Singaporean, Bu Xiang Xing, said: “I doubt the authenticity of the posts. How did they know the voice was from Lee Kuan Yew?”

“I personally thought I heard ‘I go Tekka wait for you’.”

“I believe the rainbow photo though. As long as it is on Facebook, it must be real.”
