An American tourist was visiting a temple in Singapore when he noticed two statues of a man and a woman by the altar.

He asked the monk what was the significance of the two. The monk explained that in the Chinese system of yin and yang, positives must always be balanced by negatives, and having the two statues ensured that the universal balance was maintained.

‘This statue of the woman is the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan-Yin.’

‘What about the other one?’ asked the tourist.

In a hushed voice, the monk said, ‘This one is the God of No Mercy, Kuan-Yew.’

PS: There is a malays saying ‘siapa makan cili dia yang terasa pedasnya’ translates, he who ate the chilli will feel the hots.  I wonder if the former PM of Singapore gets this type of sarcastics much in his face? hurm.. hehe
