A few days after he was discharged from hospital for a suspected stroke, Singapore’s Supreme Leader Lee Kuan Yew attended a Chinese New Year Garden Party at Istana on Sunday.
In a post on her Facebook, fellow MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC Indranee Rajah wrote:
“Mr Lee Kuan Yew, A/P Koo Tsai Kee with Tanjong Pagar-Tiong Bahru grassroots leaders and myself at the Chinese New Year Garden Party at Istana – 24 Feb 2013″
“Very happy to see Singapore’s founding father Mr Lee appearing at public function. Greatest respect for him.” – Pannisamy Verrapan
“Great to see our founding father in good health, and for those that curse the founding father maythe curse be rebounce to themselves. Without Mr. Lee and the old guards Singapore will never be what it is today.” – Albert Teo
“Is so relief to see my Singapore Idol, uncle Lee in good health, taking pix with the public. This is the greatest celebration (better than striking TOTO) for whole Singapore on 元宵节 !” – Erica Ong
At 89 years of age, Lee is currently the world’s oldest living MP. He is widely regarded as the ‘founding father’ of Singapore without which it will still remain a ‘swamp’.
