Together we can overcome

This man is Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Son of Lee Kuan Yew. I have never seen a political leader being so much respected and supported by their own people. Yes, Singapore is a FINE (Penalty) Country. But you will be surprised how much faith people have in Government and leadership. When Prime minister addresses important issues, I often see responses like “Please do NOT worry Prime Minister. We will get through this together.” This is a rare scenery to see people comforting their leader, NOT the other way around.

I still remember back in 2015 when his father Lee Kuan Yew passed away, how thousands of people mourned over his death. The sense of sadness was so deep, you could feel it in every corner of Singapore street. I am a Korean but I too was deeply saddened by people’s emotion at that time.

Lee Hsien Loong is different from his father. While Lee Kuan Yew was criticized for being too restrictive, Lee Hsien Loong is more open and down to earth. He makes sure that messages are communicated with citizens. He makes sure that his people are protected and provided. And he doesn’t hesitate to make himself available to fellow Singaporeans and enjoys mingling with crowd like a child.

Not only his personality is charming and friendly, he puts his heart and soul into running this country and Singaporeans are aware of that. Many Singaporeans are comfortable about his political decisions. It seems this strong relationship and loyalty between citizens and political leader makes the country as a whole incredibly strong especially in chaotic times like now. People feel safe in Singapore. People feel that Singapore is one of the most safest places in the world. I have seen people calling him a Hero of the nation. And this does NOT come without an effort.

I have every confidence that Singapore will get over this pandemic without too much of damage. Continue to have faith and follow the guidelines. Let’s get over this together as one. SG United!!

(I sound like a Singaporean.. lol. I am just a Korean living in Singapore. But let’s beat this together anyways!! =) )

  • Merobok:

    If the writer is a Korean, just brush aside his comments! He does not even know the beginnings of S’pore nor has he done NS, and yet wants to impose his ideas to Singaporeans! He should comment on what’s happening back in his own country and whether his leader has performed well in this pandemic!

    Is it impossible some of those flatteries are not from internet brigade or paid agents ?

    I would not be so daring to say paid agents can be disabled people paid to post praises everyday.

    Just asking. I cannot prove what i say.
    Am sure sg has mo paid agents. Call me a liar. But this is what I think.

    If you look at and observe closely, there is at least one YouTube person always posting praises to essentially every CNA video on singapore covid.

    This YouTube account is called TIM. He keep posting ” great contents dude”.

    Search all the videos he commented.

  • Shut Up:

    Inspirational enough to make one feels she must be outright hiding the conscience bullshitting and most lightly for personal gain.

    Well, she stops to mentioned the POFMA Act and the GST which makes citizen now pays almost 5 to 7 times of income tax since the old man. The casinos, the compulsory shields and shields, the CECA, the population white paper, the ill advice not to wear the mask directly or indirectly creating the situation as of today, creating more unnecessary sufferings than not and billions and billions of projected losses etc..

    FTs should like them as PAPi give away billions to foreign students by now but deprive even Singaporean poor to obtain the original school result because of $156 owing.

    I would say, being a korean, she knows little, could be biased because of foreign pass, scholarship or citizenship needing or whatever, she should shut the F up.

  • Weird !:

    Gwen, you sound like a fake person.

    Either you are a IB resource or simply using the pandemic crisis to gain advantage with politicians to become PR or Singaporean.

    With election may happen anytime, I think IB is becoming active now to gain the lost trust of Singaporeans with the PAP machinery.

    PAP is lost so much ground last few years with the unpopular CECA, jobs, POFMA, Money politics…etc

    PAP will suffer serious vote loss if election is called during this trying times.

    Fellows Singaporeans let’s face , all the faked Lee domocracy to PAP is trillionaires n arrogance to humiliatrvtheir benefactors n that is you. Singaporeans lives mean nothing to them than the $$$$ n the power to get them As Berak chan has arrogantly boasted of his power of importing any number n types of foreigners to replace Singaporeans from their jobs n dead
    So longer power term is . What if the whole citizenry is infected after they get your votes, they can always import foreigners
    That is why they spent billions to con the foreigners how great n good they r.
    if GE is on during the pandemic, boot them out n let them waste their evil in their own den.

  • He is not a right person 4 PM:

    If we are can ONLY package our foods from the eating place STARTING FROM 6 April, and we are not supposed to sit and eat over the stalks. Besides, we only got five people to die from COVID-19; it is not severe. Based on the present chaotic situation, LHL still insists to have the 2020 election, then what is the rationale for rushing for the vote for the new government. Our children are not dumb, they know to stay home to avoid infected. However, the government still think it is time to have an election, not sure what is their intention, GREEDY or POLITICAL reasons or BLESSED by COVID-19 or whatever reasons.

    It is not for us to speculate, just jook at some of this comment from Lee Hsien Yang. You can guess the answer. Sad to think that LHL has no intention to take care of people well being and health safety.

  • Educating Singaporeans:

    Let me educate you, Singaporeans.

    This Korea chap is correct. PAP SG will overcome this pandemic.

    We urge all 80% PAP supporters to go down to Korea supermarket and buy up all their products.

    example Koryo Mart Seng Kang Square or other location.

    The Koreans got good hygiene habits compare to Singaporeans.

    Let go buy buy buy at Korea supermarket.

    Thank you, Gwen Myung.

    Singaporeans only whine and criticize only. They offer no solutions.

  • Harder Truths:

    People do not understand this COV is not the real problem. It is only a trigger for the world economic depression. The USA, EU and China all all going into a long cycle of no real growth. Low oil prices means no recovery of the US bind market and this in turn will halt all banking activity.

    You have not seen the real pain that will come after this CoVID is over – but be prepared for the oil market shutdown in $G as many companies will simply shed jobs or relocate. Shutting down means the clueless $G will be queuing at job banks or government food outlets for their daily take-aways.

    The FT will simply get stronger – they are not expendable – locals are.

    $G has done a fine job making India into a IT hub, using $G’s know-how. It will not come as a surprise if local banks move their HQ’s to MY or India to avoid the downturn.

    Will the $G citizen go to MY to work instead? The policy of the 4G is survival of the fittest. If you cannot perform it is your fault.

    This is why the pappies need the election now – but it seems they have waited too long. But they will do it to make sure their power is maintained before the locals figure what is really going on. The ballsless will surely vote them in again.

    Nothing we can do from here on. Just hope to survive if you can.

    Moon is anytime better! He is a mature Politician. I have been to Korea no less than 5 times. Each time I am impressed!

    Was there in Dec 2019 and I don’t know what the Koreans were protesting in Cityhall?

    The only setback for Koreans is their Govt does not speak England so the world hardly knows them.

    But then again…….why should you bother………….the Europeans are poor performers?

    I don’t even need to read the name, I knew the writer is a foreigner, when she wrote; “When Prime minister addresses important issues, I often see responses like “Please do NOT worry Prime Minister. We will get through this together.””

    Does the writer know when this clown wanted to address the nation, everyone starts going supermarkets to stockup with essential? Only he himself consoling himself with “We will get through this together.” and ended up he did not know what to do!!

    When she mentioned; “… he puts his heart and soul into running this country”, she has no idea it was all for himself and his cronies. Did she know his wife is the CEO of Temasak, having an undiscloseble salary?

    I know she want to keep her job in Singapore, please do it with her professional talent and not in ball-carrying, unless that’s her profession!!

    FACEBOOKWHATSAPPTWITTER
    JORHAT, INDIA (NYTIMES) – For nearly two years, Mamoni Rajkumari, a lawyer, spent her days deciding who was an Indian citizen and who was not, as part of a tribunal reviewing suspected foreigners in the state of Assam.

    Then, she says, she was dismissed for not declaring enough Muslims to be non-citizens. “I was punished,” she said.

    Rajkumari, 54, has found herself on the front line of India’s citizenship wars. In addition to the tribunals, which Assam has operated for decades, the state has also recently completed a broader, separate review of every resident’s paperwork to determine if they were citizens.

    That review found that nearly 2 million of Assam’s 33 million residents, many of them desperately poor, were possibly foreigners. Now this group – which is disproportionately Muslim – is potentially stateless…. “Unquote.

    Response :Muslims are foreigners in India.So India don’t recognise Muslims as citizens but as foreigners in their country?

  • opposition dude:

    Goondu Loong can appear as charming or smiling or whatever. But when his policies are revealed it’s us who suffer. Never ending transport fare increases and an upcoming 9% GST are starters.

    I have no issue with people who want to praise him but as with all things in life, you won’t please everyone all the time.

    This Korean thinks goondu is doing well but I’m sure a significant proportion of the population don’t think so. If PAP was doing as well as they say they are then why have we got so many cases per day all of a sudden? Why have we got 4 deaths IN A SINGLE WEEK??

    Easy to criticize but the careful policies of the govt are what is saving Singapore today. I remember reading a lot of articles here saying that Singapore’s reserves should be distributed among its citizens and why maintain such reserves. Today, it is those reserves that are being used to bail out the economy and help people survive. Singapore should be very grateful for its competent political leadership…
