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.
