Sat down yesterday with ‘Focus’ 《焦点》, @ch8sg’s weekly current affairs programme to talk about the late Mr Othman Wok, one of our Founding Fathers. A firm believer in multiracialism, he and his Malay @papsingapore comrades played a critical role in building today’s multiracial and multireligious Singapore. The programme in Mandarin will air tomorrow, Thursday 27 April, at 10:30pm on Channel 8. There will also be a repeat telecast on Friday on Toggle or on Channel 8 at 10am. Hope you’ll catch it then! – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

Got a quick refresher course on the kerb drill to cross the road safely :), and took part in the reflexes test at the Walk Cycle Ride @ AMK event this morning! Glad residents, old and young, are keen to learn the road safety rules and code of conduct for cyclists and users of personal mobility devices. Pedestrian safety is crucial, so let’s all be gracious and considerate, to make our roads safer for everyone. Happy at many recent improvements to the network of routes in Ang Mo Kio. Getting around on foot, bicycle or public transport is now much easier! Commuters enjoy more comfortable journeys, shorter wait times, and better connectivity to amenities. Thanks to all residents whose feedback helped us to improve things. – LHL ([1] MCI Photo by Kenji Soon; [2 & 3] Photos by me)

Mdm Chen Yueh Lun, 81, lives alone in her one room flat. She is active, exercises regularly with other seniors, but needs help to clean high areas in her flat due to age. Fortunately, she got a helping hand when we kicked off the Silver Homes programme this morning in Teck Ghee. Silver Homes is part of Central CDC’s Silver Alliance initiative, which is looking for 10,000 volunteers to help seniors living in the Central Singapore District. Thanks to student volunteers from Teck Ghee Primary School, Raffles Institution and Autism Resource Centre Singapore / Pathlight School, Mdm Chen’s flat now has a fresh coat of paint. I was happy to see the youthful enthusiasm and passion of the student volunteers. When the community comes together, gets involved and understands residents’ needs, we truly create a culture of caring. – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

Got to see Mr Tan Swie Hian’s painting of my parents at the National Library Singapore yesterday. Mr Tan spent five years on this painting, inspired by a photo of my parents as students in Cambridge. He has generously presented it to NLB, so that more people can enjoy it. Mr Tan is a multi-disciplinary artist and a Cultural Medallion winner. His exhibition “Anatomy of a Free Mind” includes paintings, sculptures, Chinese calligraphy and poetry, as well as inspirations and processes jotted down in notebooks. I wished him much success, and hope that he continues being inspired and creating great art! – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

When I ventured into Facebook and Twitter 5 years ago, I had no idea where they would take me. I didn’t know either platform very well, but I thought it would be an interesting way to reach you, hear your thoughts, and share ideas on building a better home for us all. It's been an amazing journey. I discovered many heartwarming and inspiring stories, got reacquainted with old friends and formed new friendships! To everyone who has shared your stories and views, thank you! Look forward to many more in the future. – LHL ([Clockwise from top left] Photo by me / MCI Photo by Terence Tan / Photo by me / MCI Photo by Terence Tan / MCI Photo by Chwee / MCI Photo by Chwee / [centre] MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

A wefie with young grassroots leaders from the Youth Executive Committees (YEC) and @pafrenz Youth Movement (PAYM). Met with them and many other grassroots leaders, volunteers, activists, PA community partners, and PA staff this afternoon at a reception after the PA board meeting. It was a diverse group with a common goal – they all gave of themselves and their time to help their communities, build trust and deepen understanding among Singaporeans, and make a better home for all. We are a stronger and more caring society because of your hard work and contributions. Thank you all and keep up the good work! – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Tonight, we held a memorial service to remember one of Singapore’s greatest sons, Encik Othman Wok. Encik Othman was staunchly committed to the ideal of a multi-racial and multi-religious Singapore. Had he been less steadfast, Singapore might have turned out very differently. From 1963-1965, Singapore was part of Malaysia. Malay PAP leaders came under intense pressure to abandon multiracialism and choose race over nation. They were abused, threatened, and denounced. UMNO leaders held rallies in Singapore, and made fiery speeches personally targeting Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Encik Othman. In 1964, racial riots broke out during a procession to mark Prophet Muhammad’s birthday. Encik Othman was there, and witnessed the violence first-hand. But he and his Malay PAP comrades stood firm. They kept the dream of a multi-racial society alive. That is why today we can say with pride, “We, the citizens of Singapore… regardless of race, language or religion.” – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

Bade farewell to Encik Othman Wok at the Sultan Mosque this afternoon. Many braved the rain to pay their respects to a man who at a pivotal moment, made a critical difference. Encik Othman will always be remembered as a man whose courage and conviction helped Singapore achieve racial and religious harmony. – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee) #RememberingOthmanWok

Deeply saddened by the passing of Encik Othman Wok, a founding father of Singapore. He was 92. Encik Othman was one of the signatories of the Separation Agreement. He was a courageous champion of a multi-racial, multi-religious, and meritocratic Singapore, and one of Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s closest comrades. During Singapore’s turbulent years in Malaysia, Encik Othman came under great pressure, and even threats on his life, for his convictions. But he stood firm, and that made all the difference to Singapore. Encik Othman was Minister of Social Affairs. He put in place measures that continue to serve the Malay community today. For example, he set up the Singapore Pilgrimage Office and the system of registration for sheikh hajis and pilgrim brokers. Encik Othman also took an active interest in the building of the first National Stadium, and also promoted motor racing in the Singapore Grand Prix years before F1 came to Singapore. For his many contributions, Encik Othman was conferred the Order of the Nila Utama (2nd class) in 1983. My deepest condolences to the family of Encik Othman Wok. His passing is a deep loss to Singapore. – LHL ([1] MCI Photo by Kenji Soon / [2] ST Photo Singapore Press Holdings Limited. Reproduced with permission.)

Keeping fit is a good way to bond with family. Happy to join cheery little faces from PAP Community Foundation (PCF) schools and their families early this morning at the Ang Mo Kio GRC and Sengkang West family carnival. We hunted easter eggs, did yoga exercises, and learnt how to make healthy sandwiches. Hope the little ones not only had fun, but learnt a thing or two about healthy eating and living. :) – LHL (PMO Video by Nurhidayah)

The #yusofishakmosque opened its doors to the public for the first time today! Happy to join Puan Noor Aishah, widow of our first President, the late Encik Yusof Ishak, and her family, the mosque management team, congregants and residents for its official opening. The mosque has a unique Nusantara (Indonesian archipelago) design. It houses a spacious prayer hall, a multi-purpose hall, an auditorium. The facilities are elder-friendly and barrier-free. The mosque also has a beautiful orchid garden! Aside from being Good Friday, today is also the first day of the Tamil calendar. So three different groups of Singaporeans – Christians, Muslims and Tamils – are all commemorating or celebrating different special events on the same day! – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Today is Good Friday, the day Christians commemorate the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and his resurrection three days later, on Easter Sunday. I wish all Christians a blessed Easter weekend. St Andrew’s Cathedral is the oldest Anglican house of worship in Singapore. Interestingly, the church stands on land donated by an early Arab settler, Syed Omar bin Ali Aljunied, a wealthy merchant and philanthropist. He was a good friend of Stamford Raffles and agreed to Raffles’ request to donate the land to build a place of worship. As you may have guessed, Aljunied Road was named after Syed Omar. :) This anecdote reflects our multicultural heritage. We are a nation of different races and religions, with a shared history of helping one another. As a uniquely Singaporean footnote, I will be attending the opening of a mosque this afternoon! – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

Met labour movement leaders over two lunches this week to find out how things are in their different industries. They represent a wide group of people, including port workers, transport workers, and professionals. They spoke about the challenges they are facing, the changes they foresee, and how they are helping workers cope. Our economy did quite well in Q1, growing 2.5%. The outlook is encouraging. I will talk about the economy and jobs at the upcoming May Day Rally. – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol [top] and Kenji Soon [bottom]) #ntucmaydayrally2017

When I visited Silicon Valley last year, Facebook’s old mantra caught my eye: “Move fast and break things”. It expressed a readiness to change existing systems, and not be trapped by SOPs and bureaucracy. This mantra came to mind yesterday at my dialogue with public service leaders. One officer asked me how the service could improve to meet future challenges. By international standards, we have an excellent civil service. But we can and must do better at improvising, and not be trapped by the silos and established ways of working that have built up over the years. Things move fast, and we need to respond with openness, flexibility, and the ability to work informally and entrepreneurially. Facebook has since updated its mantra. It is now “Move Fast With Stable Infrastructure”. A good goal for us too, I think! – LHL (MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

Delighted to celebrate Eurasian culture and heritage at the Eurasian Festival this morning! The Eurasians are one of the smallest ethnic groups in Singapore. But the distinctive community has made many contributions in the arts, public sector, business, and sports. They are an integral part of our history and multicultural society. @The_eurasian_association (EA) has done a sterling job rallying the community to serve one another, and preserving the tradition and culture. EA organised this festival with @pafrenz at Our Tampines Hub today. EA is also upgrading its Heritage Centre with support from the National Heritage Board. Through such celebrations, we appreciate one another’s culture better and strengthen our harmonious multi-racial society. – LHL (Photo by me)

A good meeting with Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, here on a 2-day working visit. He had visited Singapore before, but this is his first visit as President. He was keen to see what could be adapted from our policies, such as our public housing, for Afghanistan. He also spoke at the NUSS Dialogue this evening. We also witnessed the signing of an MOU on Technical Cooperation. Hundreds of Afghan officials have visited Singapore to study our public service agencies and anti-corruption measures. We will continue to support Afghanistan’s development through the Singapore Cooperation Programme. – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

The Council of Presidential Advisers (CPA) advises the Elected President on the exercise of his powers. The President has to consult the CPA on matters concerning the reserves, and key public service appointments such as the Chief Justice and Attorney-General. After the recent Constitutional changes, the CPA now comprises 8 full members and 2 alternate members. At this afternoon’s swearing-in ceremony, Mr Lim Chee Oon and Mr Stephen Lee Ching Yen became full members, and Mr Chua Thian Poh an alternate member. Mr Bahren Shaari was also appointed an alternate member, but will be sworn in later. The CPA and the Elected President together make up the ‘second key’ that protects our reserves and the integrity of our public service. It makes for a stable political system that secures the future for Singaporeans. – LHL (L-R: Mr Chua Thian Poh, Mr Lim Chee Onn, President and Mrs Mary Tan, Justice Chao Hick Tin, and Mr Stephen Lee Ching Yen. / MCI Photo by LH Goh)

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. Autism is an 'invisible' disability. Many people with autism show no obvious signs. No two have exactly the same symptoms, abilities, or problems. Quite a few have amazing talents, in music, mathematics or art, like Xandyr Quek, who created this elaborate clay landscape of Woodlands. But many need help to do basic things the rest of us take for granted. Some cannot even speak, or communicate their needs to caregivers. We have support systems for people with autism, from early intervention to workplace training. These help people with autism live as independently as possible, but they need our support and understanding too. With more awareness, we can help bring the 'invisible' disorder out into the open. – LHL #SGCares ('City in the Works' by Xandyr Quek - a clay model of Woodlands town displayed at the opening of the National Gallery Singapore in 2015./ Photo by me)

Celebrated Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) 150th Anniversary (!!) yesterday. The AGC was formed on 1 Apr 1867. On that date, Singapore ceased to be controlled by the British East India Company in Calcutta, and became one of the Straits Settlements under the Colonial Office in London. The AGC has multiple roles. It is the public prosecutor, the Government’s legal advisor, legislative drafter, and international lawyer. It ensures that justice is administered fairly, advises the Government on its legal rights and obligations, prepares and updates legislation, and protects Singapore’s legal interests abroad. Thank you to all AGC officers past and present for your service to Singapore! Your passion for the public interest will continue to contribute towards Singapore’s future success. - LHL (With Attorney-General Lucien Wong (left) and Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon (right)./ MCI Photo by LH Goh)

How better to experience being up in a giant Tembusu tree than while lying on a Canopy Web? Tried out this new feature at the opening of the Botanic Gardens’ Learning Forest – 10 hectares of wetlands and forest habitats. Staff at the Gardens and @nparksbuzz have worked hard to recreate and restore the wetlands based on old 19th century maps and geological surveys. Visitors can stroll along boardwalks and elevated walkways, view swamp orchids and giant rainforest trees, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the 200 species of wildlife found there. My thanks to the sponsors, volunteers, and staff for their contributions to the Learning Forest. Admission is free, so I hope that many more Singaporeans will enjoy this green gem with their loved ones. – LHL (Photos by me)

Took a walk on the wild side at Jurong Bird Park last month, and dropped in on some fine, feathered friends. While our nature reserves are great for nature lovers, the Bird Park has much to offer too, especially to young kids! Here’s some of what I managed to catch on camera. I particularly liked Rocky, the Malay Eagle Owl, whose handler Chandra helped me get a good photo! – LHL (Photos by me)

We need innovation to stay ahead of competition. So I was happy to declare 2018 the France-Singapore Year of Innovation, together with French President @fhollande today. Mr Hollande was in Singapore for a two-day state visit. We will strengthen our innovation ecosystems, e.g. programmes to promote R&D or to support entrepreneurship. Also witnessed the signing of 4 MOUs in research, space technologies, sustainability, and public affairs. France and Singapore have enjoyed excellent cooperation, and I look forward to doing more. – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Happy to open an #ABCWaters project yesterday evening – Pang Sua Pond in Bukit Panjang. We started improving Sungei Pang Sua long ago, de-silting it in the 1970s, and building Pang Sua Pond in the 1990s to collect stormwater. This ABC Waters project involved building a 480m boardwalk around and over Pang Sua Pond, and a stage for performances and activities. Our ponds, canals, and reservoirs are beautiful and fun places for all to enjoy. But water is a serious matter in Singapore. We pour :) huge effort and resources into water projects, to build a secure water supply for Singaporeans. Let’s enjoy our ABC Waters, but never forget how important and precious water is. – LHL (MCI Photos by Terence Tan)

Economic ties between Vietnam and Singapore are strong, and we’ve made progress since our 2013 Strategic Partnership. So far for 2017, Singapore is Vietnam’s top foreign investor. The seven Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Parks (VSIPs) all across Vietnam are a good example of our longstanding economic collaboration. Had several meetings in Hanoi yesterday. Met my host Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc and other leaders, and witnessed the signing of 5 MOUs. I presented PM Phúc with a copy of Mr Lee Kuan Yew's memoirs. The Vietnamese translation was launched yesterday, on the second anniversary of Mr Lee's passing. I thanked the PM for his warm hospitality, and invited him to make a visit to our shores soon. Heading home later today! – LHL (Welcome ceremony at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi./ MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

KC Low (on my left) showed me some of the organic products he sells in his shop, 5th Element. He grows them on his farm – beetroots, bananas, and even strawberries! He was one of the Singaporean business owners I met at VivoCity yesterday. Not the VivoCity at HarbourFront though, but in Ho Chi Minh City! Visited SC VivoCity and Mapletree Business Centre, just two of the familiar names from home that have made their way to Vietnam. Both developments are located at Saigon South Place Complex, and reflect our strong business presence. Singapore is the top foreign investor in HCMC, and I hope to see bilateral trade and economic ties continue to grow. – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

A busy first day in Ho Chi Minh City yesterday meeting both Vietnamese friends and Singaporeans based here. It’s been 10 years since my last visit. The city has developed tremendously, fueled by the energy and industriousness of its people. Had a good meeting with Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Chairman Nguyễn Thành Phong at the Reunification Palace, followed by lunch, where I took this pic of the elaborate table decoration (made of pumpkin), and the traditional musicians entertaining us. Later, we met 300 overseas Singaporeans, young and old, at a get together. Glad to see them flying the high in ! – LHL ([1-2] Photos by me / [3] MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

Have arrived in Ho Chi Minh City for an official visit. I was last in Vietnam in 2013, and the city is as bustling as ever! Singapore is a good friend of Vietnam. Look forward to meeting the Chairman of the HCMC People’s Committee, Mr Nguyễn Thành Phong, and in Hanoi, President Trần Đại Quang (whom we hosted last year) and PM Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, along with other Vietnamese leaders, to explore ways to strengthen our friendship. Will also be meeting many Singaporeans over the next few days, both here and in Hanoi. Will update with photos soon! :) – LHL (PMO #Timelapse Video by Alex Qiu)

We cannot tell when a crisis or a terrorist attack will happen. While our security agencies are trained to detect and stop such incidents, all of us must also be prepared. Attended an Emergency Preparedness (EP) Day in Teck Ghee today. @Singaporepoliceforce, @myscdf, and volunteers simulated a “live” exercise right in front of the market at Blk 415. Glad that residents found the exercise useful, and learnt some CPR and AED techniques at the exhibition. The terrorists aim to divide us. We must never let that happen. We must stay close to our neighbours and friends of different races. The stronger our kampung spirit, the less chance the terrorists have. You can watch my speech today via the link in my profile. - LHL ([1] MCI Photo by Fyrol/ [2-3] Photos by me)

We can now admire pretty cherry blossoms, also known as sakura, right here in tropical Singapore! More than 20 varieties have made their way to @gardensbythebay for the second year running, for the Gardens' ‘Blossom Bliss’ floral display. When I visited last Saturday, the Flower Dome was adorned with blooming cherry blossoms in shades of pink and white set in a Japanese-inspired landscape. Glad to see the visitors enjoying the stunning blooms, many with cameras and handphones in hand. :) The floral display will be on until 24 March. Do visit the Facebook page for blossom updates if you plan to visit the Flower Dome for your next #jalanjalan! - LHL (Photos by me)
