Survey By UK Firm Shows The Obamas, Taylor Swift, More Admired By Singaporeans Than Power Couple, Lee Hsien Loong, Ho Ching
In a survey of the men and women most admired in Singapore, it came as no surprise to anyone that local power-couple, Lee Hsien Loong and his wife, Ho Ching, did not top the survey.
Instead, former US President, Barak Obama, and his wife, Michelle, topped the list.
The survey was conducted by a UK-based research firm, YouGov.
LHL was eight on the list, ahead of local pop star, JJ Lin, but behind global icons such as David Beckham, Mark Zuckerbeg, and Jack Ma.
Ho Ching was fifteenth on the female list, behind President Halimah Yacob, who was placed eleventh. Pop superstar, Taylor Swift, was fourteenth on the list.
We know, the question on your mind has to be - how did LHL come eighth on the list? Is there really a dearth of men worthy of admiration in Singapore? What about Tharman Shanmugaratnam?
