In the Facebook live video, Ms Tin gave a update on what had transpired earlier and said that the President’s address was next. She also introduced the people with her. When her father appeared in the picture, she said with a hearty laugh: “The one video-bombing at the back is my dad.” With her encouragement, he waved to the camera and said “hello”.

She said: “We just did our swearing-in. It’s an exciting time. Clearly, Parliament now is a lot more diverse — a lot more colourful — get the pun?”

Although the live feed had a candid vibe, Ms Tin did not fail to deliver a substantial message. “We really need to beat this pandemic — overcome it — so we can return to normal life soon, but also to emerge stronger,” she said. “More than that, as we look ahead, as our economy transforms — as the whole world transforms, how can Singapore stay relevant? How can we maintain our position in the world? And therefore create more opportunities for Singaporeans — that is what is really important to us.”

Ms Tin added her belief all of that would begin with the country’s new 14th Parliament.

Many commenting on the live feed congratulated the MP for her active engagement of her constituents and Singaporeans on social media.
