21 Times Lee Hsien Loong Totally Nailed The Whole Social Media Thing

It’s always a risk posting anything remotely positive about the Singapore government – the anti-gov sentiments are so darn strong online! But I can’t help but marvel at prime minister Lee Hsien Loong’s social media efforts. From food pics to humblebraggin’ posts, LHL’s various social media accounts have got all of them covered. Seriously. Props to his publicity team LOL.

Believe it or not, here’re 21 times Lee Hsien Loong totally nailed the whole social media thing:

1. That time an owl flew into his office and he tweeted AND instagrammed it like a regular person would.

I can almost imagine him going “omg omg omg it’s an owl. GUYS, IT’S AN OWL!!!!” Much like a regular person would!

2. That time he humble bragged about sitting next to Aung San Suu Kyi

What he said: “At the Singapore Summit this evening, I shared my optimism about prospects for Asia… blah blah blah”

What (I imagine) he’s really saying: “CHECK IT OUT I’M SITTING NEXT TO AUNG SAN SUU KYI YO!”

3. That time he was really proud about LKY receiving an Honorary Doctor of Laws from NUS.

^^ See how his face shines with pride!


4. Look! He even instagrammed a pic he took on his own phone!

5. That time he shared a #throwback pic of him and Tan Chuan-Jin from way back in ’89! Note the #nostalgia hashtag!

6. That other time he posted a #throwback pic. This time of him and his wife, Ho Ching, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! He even joined in on the #Royalbaby and #Itsaboy hashtags!

7. When he took the train and was garang enough to stand right in the middle of the cabin where there are no train handles to hold on to! Fierce.

8. The times he posted touristy pics just like the rest of us do! For instance, there was the “view from my hotel room window” pic in Tokyo,
