Title: Being isolated on an island was not a problem for Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.
On the mountain: Altai [Mountain]
In the sea: A gag about being isolated on an island.
[This notes that Singapore founder Lee Kuan Yew turned a small island into the only developed country in ASEAN.
It the cartoon, Altai Mountain is a place where PM Prayuth recently said that Thai people came from. This assumption was proposed by Khun Wijitmatra who believed that the origin of Thai people was the Altai region in China. This assumption has been denied by some historians, but many people still believe it as it is the official story taught in schools.]
