In the video, a person could be heard asking the politicians to do a microphone check.
Ms Harris got the ball rolling, choosing the conventional mic test of counting from 1 to 5.
When it got to PM Lee’s turn, he decided to have a little fun.
He said “hello” a few times before comically saying, “baa baa black sheep”.
For a second, Ms Harris looked at PM Lee in confusion before bursting into laughter.
The crowd at the Istana could also be heard laughing in the background.
Ms Harris then continued the nursery rhyme, saying, “have you any wool?”, eliciting chuckles from PM Lee.
Netizens enjoyed the light-hearted moment
Watching the video, netizens found the moment between the 2 country’s leaders very cute.
Some even joked that PM Lee seemed to be as nervous as one would in front of a crush.
This netizen shared that we hardly get to see such funny and light moments between the usually serious politicians and it made his day.
Candid moment during a serious event
PM Lee’s casual joke turned out to be a nice and heartwarming moment of shared laughter between the 2 leaders.
Politics can often been lofty and distanced from the humans behind it and it is nice to catch glimpses of such candid moments.
US Vice-President Kamala Harris is slated to leave Singapore for the next leg of her Asia trip to Vietnam today.
Although it was a short 3 days, we certainly hope she had a fruitful and good stay here.
