Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong made a keynote speech at a dialogue organised by venture capital firm Sequoia Capital at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore on Friday (Feb 24). Mr Lee shared pictures from the dialogue in his Facebook and among them was a picture of some staff from the hotel holding up umbrellas for him.
Mr Lee captioned his picture saying: “It poured during the dialogue, so The Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore staff formed this line of umbrellas ☔ to keep me dry as I left. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! :)”
Other than the typical comments from apple-polishers, this share got hilarious responses in the Prime Minister’s FB.
Responding to a query if Ritz-Carlton did it “just for show (or if) they do this for ordinary people or guests”, Seva Kumar Selvaraj, Bell Captain at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, said the hotel treats all its guests equally.
Facebook user Wilson Teo however ridiculed that the hotel’s gesture was “Productivity at its best!!! Waste of manpower. #epicpalmface”
