This shows that Singaporeans embrace creativity.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who embrace creativity by coming up with imaginative names, have successfully renamed Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son.

This after they learnt that creativity can be expressed by renaming Compass Point shopping mall as 1 Sengkang Mall in a bid to showcase a flair in thinking out of the box.

One Singaporean, Gai Ming Zi, said: “Singaporeans are beginning to embrace the culture of being more creative by performing their own name changes and they are doing this out of their own volition.”

“Therefore, a group of Singaporeans have decided to rename Lee Hsien Loong as 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son, following the rich culture established and precedent set by 1 Sengkang Mall.”

Other Singaporeans said the name change will mark a shift in thinking about 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son.

Chuan Tong, another local, said: “We Singaporeans took a long time to conceptualise and approve of this new name.”

“To name him as 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son will better help younger Singaporeans situate him within a historical context so that we don’t forget his roots.”

At press time, there are plans to rename President Tony Tan as 1 Popularly Elected President Who Barely Won The Popular Vote By A Few Votes.
