An attitude we should learn from.
As Lee Hsien Loong stepped down as Prime Minister, people are reminiscing about a moment years ago, when Lee was photographed queuing for 45 minutes to buy famous chicken wings at a local hawker stall.

This scene took place in 2014 when Lee was caught patiently waiting in line for his turn at the stall renowned for its delectable fried chicken wings and stir-fried rice noodles.

According to him, he queued patiently for 45mins for the first time and 30mins for the second time.

Refused to cut the queue

The stall owner shared that despite his high office, Lee insisted on queuing.

“When he first came in 2014, we told him he didn’t need to queue and could just tell us what he wanted. But he refused, insisting on being treated like everyone else.

Even when other customers tried to give up their spot, he wouldn’t accept it,” the vendor said.
