The visit by Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi has been widely covered by local media.
A video by Channel NewsAsia on Aung San Suu Kyi inspecting the guard of honour at the Istana generated much reponse from locals and Myanmar national alike.
Some locals pointed out that Aung San Suu Kyi was disrespectful as she did not acknowledge the state colours when she walked past them.
Others called on her to address the proverbial elephant in the Istana – the genocide of the Rohingya. They wanted Aung San Suu Kyi to learn from Singapore.
This elicited protestations from Myanmar nationals who claim that Singaporeans do not understand the Rohingya problem.
To convince Singaporeans, one even gave an impromptu lesson in Myanmar history.
This was followed by a concerted outpouring of love for Aung San Suu Kyi.
So there you have it.
Can the Rohingya genocide be resolved soon?
