Mr Leong was the central topic of the SG Talk conversation, with netizens noting his attributes and character.

3. PAP poster fumble has Redditors laughing.
After a Redditor shared a photo of a PAP sign over a road sign, netizens on the online news forum had a good laugh. The PAP logo was seen to have been placed over a road sign that read “Out”, which some took as an amusing inside joke.
While many poked fun at the implied “PAP Out” fiasco, others contemplated over who must have been responsible for putting the sign up. It is not certain whether the photo was edited but one person pointed out that the Elections Department Singapore (ELD), in its handbook for elections, stipulates that posters “must not obstruct any other existing banners, traffic signs, cameras or any other related road infrastructure”.
