Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is now in California on a working visit. Among the many personalities he met during this visit was Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.
Writing about the meet-up on his Facebook page, PM Lee said, “Mark Zuckerberg gave me a nice cube with photos from my Facebook page etched on the sides. We are looking at the side which has the Sudoku solver code I shared last May. The side facing the camera has a photo of me attempting a jump shot with NTU students.”
Mark shared about the meeting on his Facebook page saying that it was an honour to host Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore at Facebook HQ.
“The Prime Minister is one of the only world leaders who knows how to code. To recognize his technical skills, we gave the PM this artwork designed at Facebook etched with lines from a computer program he wrote,” the Facebook founder said.
Some social media users are now comparing PM Lee’s meeting with the head honcho of Facebook with Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak’s meeting with the same media mogul – especially bringing up the big boo-boo Najib made when he shared about the visit.
The Malaysian Prime Minister tweeted about his meeting with Mark in 2013, and said that he met the Facebook boss in “Twitter HQ”.
Najib later admitted that he had made a mistake as to where he met the Facebook chief.
The Internet was swift in reacting to the Malaysian PM’s boo-boo.
Now some commenters are drawing attention to how Mark has a genuine, wide smile in the picture of his meeting with PM Lee, as compared to an awkward grin in the one with the Najib.
The dubbing of the Malaysian Prime Minister as “king of donations” is especially hilarious!
