She also rain in the 2014 elections but was disqualified for the event she organized where she demanded the government return the CPF to Singaporean citizens.
Alvinology previously wrote about her in two separate articles and mentioned her on our Facebook profile using a meme.
The mention on the Facebook profile with with the following photo resulted in a Facebook ban for our Editor in Chief, Alvin Lim, and suspension of his account on the social media giant for 24 hours.
Facebook said that by posting the photo below, Alvinology violated its community standards, which was why Alvin’s profile got taken down. Do you think this violated Facebook community standards?
In another article, Alvinology featured a girl who looked very much like Han but going by the name of Hui Ying explain a social situation called AMDK in a short video.
Some netizens said that the woman could be Han’s younger sister but this is mere speculation.
