S’poreans react to PM Lee hitting 1 million Facebook Likes on his page

Posted on 18 February 2016

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s has reached 1 million Likes on his Facebook page.

He achieved the milestone during his week-long trip to the United States. The page crossed the mark on Wednesday, Feb. 17 evening.

In a post on Thursday afternoon, PM Lee said he had just returned to Singapore and was “surprised” to find that his page had more than a million likes.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “I would die for one million Facebook Likes instead of for Singapore.”
Xian Shi, 44-year-old philosopher


sian-half-uncle “Roy Ngerng can sue because clearly his blog posts did not harm PM Lee’s popularity.”
Shang Fa Ting, 65-year-old court clerk


happy-bird-girl “Lee Kuan Yew was still the better prime minister despite having zero Facebook Likes.”
Lee Zhong Li, 19-year-old class president
