Ho Ching unusually active on Facebook, with poetry, health advice and words of thanks

The Chief Executive Officer of Temasek Holdings, Ho Ching, is not known for her verbosity on social media. In fact, it is the complete opposite. Her presence is marked by many posts shared on Facebook through out the day, but she rarely ever comments on any of them. Today however, the wife of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong shared three different posts, with a poem she wrote, health advice and a note of thanks.

In one of the posts, Ho Ching wrote to the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) to thank them. She said,
“Kudos to the folks in AVA,
toiling quietly but persistently
over decades and generations
to ensure food security
for this little red dot.

A big thank you!”

Along with the post was an article titled, ‘Singapore’s Impressive Food Security’.

In another post earlier today, she advised Singaporeans to “Stay safe”, especially those travelling.

She wrote what seemed like a poem,
“Stay safe
wherever you travel
in new places meeting new faces

Stay alert
behind the wheels
on new roads and unfamiliar byways

Have a happy holiday
and return to a happy new year
with family and friends in little SG”.

She also shared an article titled, ‘German airports on alert amid attack fears’.

Her most recent post had advice about hearing. In her post, she wrote, “Go test our hearing. Most people don’t notice until it becomes severe. The most common hearing loss is due to age”.


Ho Ching also replied to almost all of the comments on her post.
