This young man and his toddler niece weren't the only ones who brought joy to Singaporeans amidst the pandemic. Mothership's tweet about the Singapore Zoo's penguins also made it into the top 4 most-retweeted tweets related to COVID-19.
This cat also went viral for flouting the rules, prompting the poster to scold it with a Malay expression translating to "don't you understand what I'm saying?"
Gov.sg's star-studded "Test, Trace, Vaccinate" music video also made waves amidst tweets about cute animals and kids.
Goodwill Efforts Also Went Viral
People in Singapore also tweeted about helping others, in particular, our frontliners and migrant workers.
While the past 18 months haven't been easy, it's nice to know that Singaporeans are still willing to spread joy and a helping hand, even in the form of something as simple as a tweet.
