Then and now – two photos with Mr Eddie Teo, Chairman of the Public Service Commission (PSC), taken 10 years apart. The top photo was in 2008, when Eddie was appointed PSC Chairman; the bottom photo was today at lunch, two weeks before he retires at the end of July. The biggest difference is probably the amount of white hair between the two of us. :) Eddie himself was a President’s Scholar. He joined the Public Service in 1970 and has held many key appointments in a long and distinguished career, including Director, Security and Intelligence Division; Director, Internal Security Department; Permanent Secretary in MINDEF; Permanent Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office; and High Commissioner in Canberra, Australia. Eddie has made considerable contributions in his decade as PSC chairman. A firm believer in diversity, he sought and inducted commission members from different backgrounds and professions ranging from businesses, academia to social work. His belief in diversity extended to scholarships. Polytechnic students were awarded scholarships for the first time. Eddie also encouraged students to venture out of their comfort zones to pursue studies in countries such as Egypt, Spain and Thailand. For his sterling contributions to the Public Service, Eddie was awarded The Order of Nila Utama First Class last year. I would like to thank him for 48 years of service to the nation, and also for many years as a friend and colleague. Wishing you a happy and fulfilling retirement! – LHL (Top photo courtesy of Eddie Teo)

Congratulations Les Bleus! Was flying home when we heard from the SQ crew that France had won the World Cup 4-2. Some of my staffers catching a later flight back went out into the Parisian streets to catch the scenes of jubilation after the win. Enjoy! – LHL (MCI Photo by Sufina)

Heading home now. Thanks to President @emmanuelmacron and the French people for their hospitality, and I look forward to welcoming the President to Singapore next year. France and Singapore continue to have a strong relationship and I hope it will continue to grow from strength-to-strength. I shall be in the air during the match, but I wish France all the best in the #WorldCup final later today. – LHL (PMO Photo by Alex Qiu)

Happy French National Day! In the English-speaking world it is the “Bastille Day”, but in France it is “le 14 Juillet” (the 14th of July) or “la Fête nationale” (the National Celebration). Many thanks to President @emmanuelmacron for inviting me to attend the military parade, which @thersaf took part in for the very first time. It was truly a grand spectacle! After the parade, I visited the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie (City of Sciences and Industry), one of the biggest science museums in Europe. Also caught up with the Singaporean community in France at an early National Day reception at our embassy. Ended the day watching the Fête nationale fireworks light up the iconic Paris skyline from my hotel window. – LHL #14juillet #FêteNationale ([1, 4] Photos by me; [2-3, 5-6] MCI Photos by Fyrol)

A busy and productive first day in Paris yesterday. Had separate meetings with President @emmanuelmacron and PM @edouardphilippepm to review our partnership with France in defence, security, trade, culture, research, and education. We also reaffirmed our commitment to the open trading system, multilateralism, and rule of law. Also happy to launch the France-Singapore Road Map for Deepening Cooperation in Digital Innovation, Internet Governance, and Cybersecurity together with President Macron. He has accepted my invitation to visit Singapore and deliver the keynote speech at the next Shangri-La Dialogue. President Macron hosted me and my delegation to a late dinner at the end of the day. Before that, on a jalan jalan along the Seine, we bumped into a Singaporean couple, Min Yuan and Gwendolyn. Invited them to join me and other Singaporeans for the National Day reception this evening! – LHL ([1] PMO Photo; [2-4] MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Bonjour! Have arrived in Paris on an official visit to France at the invitation of President @emmanuelmacron. France was one of the first countries to recognise Singapore’s independence in 1965. Since then, France has become one of our Strategic Partners. We have strong cooperation in many areas – economy, defence, education, and people-to-people ties. I am honoured to be attending the Bastille Day Military Parade (France’s NDP) as Guest-of-Honour. Look forward to seeing @thersaf M-346s and the Singapore flag flying during the parade. Japan PM @shinzoabe was supposed to be a fellow Guest-of-Honour. Unfortunately he had to cancel because of the floods in western Japan. I had written to Mr Abe earlier to offer help in the relief efforts. Am confident that the Japanese people will overcome this disaster with fortitude. – LHL (Photo by me)

A good meeting with South Korean President @moonjaein today. He is here on a State Visit, at the invitation of President @halimahyacob. Singapore and South Korea are good friends. We cooperate on many things. Trade and investments, and also people-to-people links, e.g. tourism. We signed several MOUs to further our cooperation, covering also new areas like technology, environment, as well as SMEs and start-ups. I’ve visited South Korea often for work, and once on holiday (in December 2015). The country bustled with people and activity despite the winter chill, and I met many Singaporeans, tourists and a few residents! Look forward to our countries working together to advance our relationship and create more fruitful partnerships. – LHL (MCI Photos by Betty Chua [1]; Terence Tan [2,3])

Asam paya buah di hutan, Ambil pelepah dibuat lidi; Tuan berbakti kepada watan, Jasa dikenang hingga abadi. (Asam paya can be found in the forest, Spines of leaves are made into rakes; Sir, you have served our nation, And your deeds remembered eternally) Recited this pantun to Mr Sidek Saniff at the launch of his personal memoir, “Life Reflections at Eighty”, yesterday. Sidek’s name is familiar to many. He has been in public service all his life – an MP for 25 years and an office holder in MTI, MOE and MEWR. Haji Sidek was a popular and respected Malay teacher before he joined politics. As President of the Malay Teachers’ Union (KGMS), he was a firebrand, unafraid to take on the government to fight for greater recognition of the Malay language, and better salaries for Malay-stream teachers. So Sidek was surprised when Mr Lee Kuan Yew invited him to join the PAP in 1976. It was not an easy decision – some of his union colleagues accused him of being “bought over” by the PAP. However Sidek accepted, and his convictions bore fruit. His efforts, with other Malay PAP MPs and community leaders, led to the formation of MENDAKI Singapore, which has done much to uplift the Malay community. I was privileged to work with Sidek in MTI. Sidek is a warm and generous person, always the first to go the extra mile to help his friends and constituents, and the last to claim credit. With the launch of his book, I hope many Singaporeans will be reminded of and inspired by Haji Sidek’s lifelong service to our country. – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

Deeply saddened to learn of Mrs Wee Kim Wee’s passing on Saturday, days after celebrating her 102nd birthday. She lived a long life full of meaning, warmth and generosity. Married to Dr Wee Kim Wee for nearly 70 years, she brought up the family and helped with his duties with unfailing good grace. Even after President Wee retired, she continued to support community causes, and raise funds for the disadvantaged. Mrs Wee was also renowned for her culinary skills, which she put to good use whipping up Peranakan delicacies. I experienced her hospitality in person when I first met her in 1976. Mr Wee was our High Commissioner in Kuala Lumpur. Mr and Mrs Wee hosted me, my mother, my future wife and her parents to a magnificent Peranakan lunch at their home, making a happy occasion all the more memorable. My deepest condolences to Mrs Wee’s children on the loss of their remarkable mother. – LHL (Wanbao Photo Singapore Press Holdings Limited. Permission required for reproduction)

Spent a full Sunday morning in Ang Mo Kio GRC. First I joined Cheng San-Seletar residents for the Be Seen, Be Safe road safety day and launched an on-demand bus service for the estate. Then headed over to Teck Ghee for the Teck Ghee Zone B Residents’ Committee’s (RC) 40th birthday. This was one of the pioneer group of RCs started in 1978, and it was good to have almost every one of the 10 past and present RC chairpersons back to celebrate with us. My thanks to Cheng San-Seletar and Teck Ghee GROs volunteers and PA staff for their work in organising the events! :) – LHL (MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

Sengkang West has grown considerably in recent years, and the estate is now bustling with young families. Last year, I joined Fernvale residents celebrating the 11th anniversary of Sengkang West, and choosing the facade design of the new Fernvale Community Club. Yesterday, I was happy to be in Fernvale once again for the CC’s groundbreaking ceremony. Once completed, residents will find it easy to shop for groceries at the wet market and enjoy meals with family and friends at the hawker centre. My thanks to @vpmlam and the many grassroots volunteers for working hard to organise yesterday’s event! – LHL ([1 & 4] MCI Photos by Fyrol, [2] Photo by me, [3] Photo by Sengkang MAEC])

Attended the swearing-in ceremony of Edwin Tong as Senior Minister of State for Law and Health this afternoon. (He joins us a little later than the other new appointees, as he had to complete his work at his law firm. :) ) Edwin has served ably and with commitment as an MP for Marine Parade GRC, and I believe will bring the same qualities to his new roles. Glad to welcome him aboard as part of the new team to lead Singapore into the next generation. Congratulations! – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

Delighted to meet many friends, old and new, at the President’s Annual Diplomatic Reception, hosted by President @halimahyacob yesterday. Since 1985, each year we have held a reception in appreciation of the contributions by the Ambassadors, High Commissioners, and heads of international organisations towards our diplomacy efforts. These diplomats help us understand their home countries. At the same time, they help spread the Singapore story and bring us closer to their countrymen. Their work goes a long way to building the friendships we enjoy with so many countries, despite Singapore being just a little red dot. – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Yesterday was SAF Day. It is when we celebrate the men and women who serve in the Singapore Armed Forces, and thank them for keeping Singapore safe. The SAF began in uncertain times, as a small regular force tasked with defending a fledgling nation. From those small beginnings, it has grown into a capable and credible force, adept in many security roles beyond conventional defence! The SAF has participated in many humanitarian and peacekeeping operations. Most recently, it mounted a major tri-service operation to secure the DPRK-USA Summit. It could not have done any of this without the men and women of the SAF carrying out their duties with pride every day. For those of you taking part in SAF Day Combined Rededication Ceremonies today, thank you for your service! – LHL #HormatSAF (#SAFDay18 Parade/ MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Happy to open the new Ang Mo Kio polyclinic today. It is bigger than the old polyclinic, and has better facilities and layout. AMK has a large elderly population, so I am happy the clinic is elder friendly. There is a Senior Care Centre, where patients can go for daycare as well as rehabilitation. It is also the first polyclinic to offer a dental chair with a wheelchair tilter. This means patients can get their dental work done without getting out of their wheelchair. Besides catering to seniors, the polyclinic also has a Women and Children clinic, and offers physiotherapy and podiatry services too. My thanks to the AMK polyclinic team for working hard on the redevelopment of the polyclinic. I am sure AMK residents will benefit from this polyclinic right in their neighbourhood. I hear it is even getting “medical tourists”, some from as far away as Bedok! :) – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Had a working lunch with @moesingapore’s International Academic Advisory Panel (IAAP) today. The panel consists of heads of universities and distinguished business leaders. We talked about the role of Autonomous Universities in our education system, lifelong learning, and promoting enterprise based on university research. The IAAP was established in 1997 by MOE to advise our universities on major trends and directions. They have been invaluable in the development of our tertiary education sector. I thank the panel for their efforts and hope to have their continued advice and counsel in the years to come. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Had an interesting exchange with some of the delegates attending the inaugural Singapore Defence Technology Summit today. They told me about how Artificial Intelligence is being used in many fields, not just defence. We also talked about Cyber-Security, which is so essential yet very hard to achieve. Some 400 participants from 17 countries have gathered here. They bring their diverse views and expertise from across the public, private, military, and academic sectors. Ours is an increasingly inter-connected world of rapid technological innovation (and disruption). Hopefully this summit will encourage more collaboration between countries to deal with the many challenges ahead. – LHL #sgtechsummit (MCI Photo by LH Goh)

Attended appreciation events for @singaporemci, @mindefsg, and Ministry of Home Affairs yesterday and today. When Singapore agreed to host the DPRK-USA Singapore Summit, we knew the security and logistical challenges that lay ahead. Proud of our government officers and agencies for coming together, rising to the challenge, and getting everything ready and operational in less than two weeks. I want to thank all our regular servicemen, NSFs, Home Team officers, public officers and our commercial sponsors for their magnificent effort. You have made Singapore shine bright on the world stage! – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol [1]; LH Goh [2,3])

It’s back to school for students, teachers and their families tomorrow. I hope everyone had a good break over the last month. To the students: I hope you had a good break with your family and are eager to catch up with your schoolmates. Continue to work hard and do your best in school. To the teachers: I hope you are recharged and ready to continue to guide and inspire your students. The values and skills you impart will prepare them for tomorrow’s challenges. Wishing everyone a good first day back in school! – LHL (Students playing on scooter boards during recess at Paya Lebar Methodist Girls' School (Primary). / ST Photo Singapore Press Holdings Limited.

It's the Dragon Boat Festival today. In Singapore, the dragon boat races are in July, but around this period many of us tuck into glutinous rice dumplings (‘bak zhang’) stuffed with delicious fillings and wrapped in bamboo leaves. Now, there is a healthier alternative – brown rice dumplings. They are more nutritious and can help reduce the risk of developing diabetes. You can feel a bit less guilty about indulging. Do give it a try :) You can watch the full video at sg.sg/kitchenkungfu. – LHL

Becoming a father is one of the key moments in a man’s life. The responsibility of shaping and guiding your child as they grow up may seem daunting, but how rewarding it is! I am glad fathers these days are more involved in raising their children. Every dad has a different approach to fatherhood, but we all want to see our children thrive and do well in life. Whether you’re an old dad, a new one or soon-to-be one, I hope you have a very happy Father’s Day with your families! – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Tomorrow marks the start of the month of Syawal and also the beginning of Hari Raya celebrations. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslim friends! Went on a #jalanjalan to the Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar and Wisma Geylang Serai over the weekend before the DPRK-US Summit. Nice to see the crowds out and about shopping for food and festive outfits, and enjoying the lights. Of course, no Hari Raya celebration would be complete without a little bit of delicious kuih Raya. ;) Will be on leave next week. Enjoy the long weekend everyone! :) – LHL (Photos by me)

Met US President @realdonaldtrump at the Istana this morning, before his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un tomorrow. Mr Trump hosted me at the White House last October, so I was glad to reciprocate his hospitality. Also took the opportunity to catch up with him, and discuss developments in the region. I wished him all the best for tomorrow’s summit, which we hope will be a first step on the path to peace. Looking forward to a positive outcome. – LHL ([1] MCI Photo by Betty Chua; [2] MCI Photo by Kenji Soon; [3] MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this evening. Mr Kim is here for the DPRK-US Singapore Summit due to take place on Tuesday.

The SAF and Home Team are busy putting in place security arrangements for the meeting between US President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday. MCI has also set up an International Media Centre at the F1 Pit Building, for the journalists covering the summit. I visited them this morning to check things out and thank them for their hard work. Singapore has hosted major events before. But this highly anticipated meeting has put our little red dot under an intense global spotlight. From the time we were asked by both sides to host this event, many Government agencies and private sector partners have worked closely with the @mfa_sg to make this happen. Thousands of public officers and personnel, including NSF and NSmen, have been mobilised. They are planning and working on the logistics, security, and media management for the summit, often working round the clock to meet deadlines. For Singapore to have been chosen as the venue for this meeting testifies to our reputation for neutrality, efficiency, and security. I am confident you will help us to be good hosts to all our visitors. May this summit lead eventually to a peaceful resolution in the Korean Peninsula. – LHL ([1, 2, 5, 6] MCI Photos by Kenji Soon; [3, 4] MCI Photos by Chwee)

Happy to join @masagosz, @dramykhor, Maliki Osman, and congregants at an iftar (break fast) at @masjidmaarof last night. The mosque has a long and interesting history. Built in 1870, it was originally located at the Kampung Jawa district (now Arab Street) and served Javanese residents. The current Maarof Mosque was completed in 2016 in Jurong, quite a distance away from where the original stood. The new mosque can accommodate 4,500 congregants. Visitors include not only residents of Jurong Town, but also NTU students and workers from the Tuas area. There are facilities for families with young children, as well as the hearing impaired. My thanks to the mosque chairman, Ustaz Rashid, for showing me around. Many thanks too to the volunteers helping out in the distribution of food during this month. Hari Raya is only a week away and I would like to wish all Muslim friends a blessed #Ramadan! – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Saddened that Mr Jek Yeun Thong, a member of the @papsingapore Old Guard, has passed away. Mr Jek was one of the ten ministers who signed the Separation Agreement in 1965, and played an important role in Singapore’s history. Mr Jek worked closely with Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He drafted Mr Lee’s first Mandarin election speech, and was Mr Lee’s Political Secretary from 1959 to 1963. After entering Parliament, he served in multiple roles in the Cabinet and in public service until he retired from politics in 1988. Mr Jek made significant contributions to building modern Singapore. His passing is a deep loss to the nation. To honour his memory and as a mark of respect, all state flags are being flown at half mast today. My deepest condolences to Mr Jek’s wife and family during this time of sorrow. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

If you were a student in the 80s and 90s, you probably remember singing “We are Singapore” with your classmates and friends in school. The song has remained a favourite at National Day Parades over the years. So this year’s organisers decided to adapt the 1987 classic and make it the #NDP18 theme song. Homegrown artiste @wherewascharlie wrote a new introduction to the song. Coming from the new generation, his feelings for our home, Singapore, are just as strong. This video takes a look at the story behind the original song, and how a new generation of writers and singers have interpreted its themes. The song was inspired by Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s 1966 speech and is best remembered for incorporating our National Pledge in it. – LHL

Indian PM @narendramodi gave the keynote address at the Shangri-La Dialogue (SLD). He is the first Indian PM to do so. It shows his commitment to “Act East” and engage the region. The SLD brings together defence ministers, military chiefs, and policymakers from around the region and beyond to discuss security issues of the day. Over the years, it has become a significant platform for exchanging views and fostering understanding and cooperation. I am meeting several of the participants over the weekend. I hope all who are involved have a fruitful and productive session. – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee) #SLD18

A good meeting with Indian PM @narendramodi at the Istana today. PM Modi was last here in 2015, when we signed a Strategic Partnership. Since then, I have visited New Delhi twice. I was glad to return the warm hospitality that PM Modi extended to us during our visits. India is a long-standing and cherished friend of Singapore. Our people-to-people ties go back centuries. Our ties in other areas – defence, economic, technology, smart cities and skills development – have also expanded over the last few years. One new area of cooperation is fintech. India is a significant market for Singapore fintech companies, while Singapore – a fintech hub – can be a gateway for India to the Southeast Asian market. We agreed to establish a Joint Working Group on Fintech. We have also launched a link between our payment systems – NETS and India’s RuPay. Indian tourists can now use RuPay cards for e-payments at Changi Airport and selected shops. My thanks to PM Modi for agreeing to deliver the keynote speech at the Shangri-La Dialogue tonight. I look forward to our two countries working closely to build a prosperous future for our peoples and the region. – LHL ([1] MCI Photo by Fyrol, [2] Photo by @vivianbalakrishnan)

E-payments are a powerful tool. We can buy anything from food to movie tickets simply, swiftly, and safely with a simple tap of our phones. But as we push for e-payments, we must make sure not to leave behind less tech-savvy Singaporeans, such as seniors. It is no good having a #SmartNation if not all citizens can benefit! I am glad that @imdasg is running workshops to show seniors how to do e-payments. I dropped in at one workshop this morning, for seniors from Teck Ghee. I was happy to see a good response – the workshop was over-subscribed! A big thank you, too, to the industry partners and volunteers who came to help guide seniors. IMDA will be running more workshops in the coming months. I hope we can all do our part to help those around us! – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Today is Vesak Day. For those who took an extra day of leave yesterday, I hope you enjoyed your extended long weekend! Vesak Day commemorates the birth, enlightenment and nirvana of Buddha. Many devotees will head over to Buddhist temples to take part in prayers and rituals, such as bathing the Buddha with scented water, which Buddhists believe will purify the mind and body, and lead to a blissful and enlightened life. Wishing all Buddhists a peaceful and blessed Vesak Day. – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)
