Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott began his two-day official visit in Singapore on Sunday, June 28, 2015.

To celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee and 50 years of bilateral relations between the two countries this year, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong taught the Aussie PM how to put on Singapore’s national headdress, as they presided over a special barbecue at Bishan Park.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “It is good to see world leaders taking time out to do something serious.”
Jiao Bin, 42-year-old florist

 

sian-half-uncle “It is hard to admit they look odd or out of place. It is as if they were born to do this.”
Dai Mao Zi, 63-year-old ex-fishmonger

 

happy-bird-girl “I wouldn’t mind wearing anything on my head if I also made a couple of million dollars a year.”
Zuan Da Qian, 19-year-old waitress
