‘Temasek Rice’ is one of the many interesting projects I saw at the @temaseklifesciences Laboratory yesterday. The grain is naturally bred through a precise selection process developed by the lab. The result is a hardy and nutritious grain with a higher yield than other rice varieties. It can withstand extreme environmental conditions brought about by climate change, such as heat, drought and floods. But perhaps most important to consumers, Temasek Rice is softer and tastier than other brown rice varieties. I was given a packet and look forward to trying it soon. :) Enjoyed learning about the lab’s work, its focus on sustainability and on using science to improve our environment and lives. Keep up the good work, TLL! – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Here’re some of the beautiful chairs on display at Ion Orchard L3 till 15 Dec for #RainbowChairity. Can you guess what each was inspired by? They were designed and decorated by special needs students from Rainbow Centre in collaboration with artists. The chairs are on sale to raise funds to build the centre’s new extension. You can make a donation or chair pledge here: http://rainbowchairity.sg/ – LHL (Photos by me)

Met these students volunteers from @ntuhall4’s Touch of the Hearts at Ion Orchard yesterday. They were helping out at an exhibition of child-sized Louis chairs by the Rainbow Centre. The chairs were decorated by the centre’s special needs students in collaboration with artists, and are being sold to raise funds to build the centre’s new extension. The vibrant designs and meticulous details are striking. I was glad to learn that two chairs have been auctioned off for close to $50,000. Good to see such meaningful projects that create awareness and support for a more inclusive society. The chairs are on display until 15 Dec, so do drop by to see the wonderful artistry if you’re doing your Christmas shopping nearby. You can find out more about the initiative here: http://rainbowchairity.sg/. – LHL #RainbowChairity (Photo by me)

Surprised to learn of New Zealand PM @johnkeypm's resignation today. As PM, Mr Key and his team dealt with some major challenges, including the global financial crisis and the 2011 Christchurch earthquake. His leadership helped transform New Zealand into a resilient and vibrant economy, and he has now given his successor the best chance of taking over and building on his achievements. We have worked closely on defence, economic cooperation, and regional issues. Mr Key was a strong advocate of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Singapore and New Zealand are two of the four countries which formed the P4, the small FTA that led to the much more ambitious TPP. In his eight years as PM, John and I became good friends. He had lived and worked in Singapore before, and has a soft spot for chilli crabs. We saw eye-to-eye on many issues, and got on very well. I shall miss John at international meetings. I wish him and his family all the best for the future. – LHL (Presented PM Key with some packets of chilli crab sauce, one of his favourite Singapore dishes, when I visited him in Wellington in 2012. / PMO Photo)

At this morning’s @papsingapore Party Conference, we honoured party members who had worked tirelessly for the party, serving Singapore and Singaporeans. Of our PAP members, Wan Daud Embong has one of the more remarkable stories. In 1956, he was a member of the Singapore Factory and Shop Workers’ Union, and was detained for being a suspected communist. He was 17. Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the union’s legal adviser, won him his freedom. His release was a defining moment, when he decided to follow Mr Lee. Mr Wan Daud has now been a PAP member for 57 of his 78 years, and we recognised all his years of service with a Long Service Medal (Gold). I spoke at the conference about the challenges ahead and how we must prepare for them. You can watch my speech over on my Facebook page. – LHL

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! :) Went for a #jalanjalan along #OrchardRoad last Saturday and saw it transformed into a winter wonderland. The shopping belt was especially lively. Saw many happy shoppers, while others were taking photos of the pretty decorations. Do bring your phone or camera along if you are planning to visit Orchard Road over the next few weeks, to capture your own festive pics! – LHL (Photo by me)

Spoke to President-elect @realdonaldtrump on the phone to congratulate him on winning the US presidential elections. We talked about the close and long-standing friendship between Singapore and US. We cooperate in many areas – economic, defence and security, education, and people-to-people. Our relations have endured through nine US Presidents, and Singapore wants to work with the incoming Administration to further strengthen ties. I invited Mr Trump and his family to visit Singapore, and looked forward to meeting him in person soon. – LHL (American and Singapore flags along the streets of Washington DC during my official visit in August. / MCI Photo by Chwee)

I was pleased to open the Asian Civilisations Museum’s (@acm_sg) new exhibition “Cities and Kings: Ancient Treasures from Myanmar” with Myanmar’s State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi yesterday evening. Many of the beautiful and historic pieces on display have been loaned from Myanmar. This is the first time some of the artefacts have travelled outside Myanmar, so we are very fortunate to have them here. The exhibition is on until 5 March 2017. Do visit when you have the time, and you can also catch the other exhibitions on display at the ACM too. – LHL (PMO Video by Chiez How and Alex Qiu)

I have never visited Bhutan, but I have read and heard much about the country described by many as “the last Shangri-la” on earth. I was also struck to read what Bhutan Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay said during a lecture in February, that 72% of its land area is forested, and that it is the only one in the world that is a net ‘carbon sink’ (meaning it removes more carbon dioxide than it produces). There is much that Bhutan has to offer, and protect and preserve for generations to come. Happy to welcome and host PM Tobgay to lunch yesterday during his first official visit to Singapore. We established diplomatic relations with Bhutan in 2002 and have built warm and friendly ties since. I was also deeply appreciative of His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck’s attendance at Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s funeral service last year. As small states with limited resources, Singapore and Bhutan face common challenges. We both understand the importance of building up our workforces through education and training. PM Tobgay told me that he visited the Singapore Tourism Board, ITE and ICA to learn more about our agencies and processes. Look forward to growing and strengthening our ties with Bhutan. – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Corporates, non-profits and individuals across Singapore are coming together to donate, volunteer, and raise funds for the causes close to their hearts. This year’s celebrations will end with International Volunteer Day on 5 December, to spread the spirit of volunteerism. But whether you choose to volunteer, donate, or simply brighten someone’s day with a kind act, there’s no limit to how you can help build Singapore into a #CityofGood! Find out how others are making a difference here: www.givingweek.sg. Or share your own ideas and photos on how you are celebrating #GivingWeekSG here! – LHL

Happy to host Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah of Brunei to lunch at the Istana today. He is here for the 4th Singapore-Brunei Young Leaders’ Programme, and to visit our defence facilities. I hear he is going to Coney Island too! Brunei has been a special friend of Singapore, since the time of Mr Lee Kuan Yew and the Seri Begawan (Crown Prince Billah’s grandfather). Our bilateral cooperation encompasses many areas – trade, foreign affairs, defence, finance, culture and education. I look forward to doing more with Brunei. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

It’s always nice to get a glimpse of the heartlands through other lenses! Audi Khalid shared this pretty evening photo of Bukit Merah with me a few weeks ago. The familiar HDB blocks take on beautiful subtle hues in the sunset. Bukit Merah (literally, ‘red hill’ in Malay) occupies a distinctive place among Singapore’s residential districts. It is home to Tiong Bahru, Singapore’s first housing estate. It is also a great place for history buffs and nature lovers, with historical landmarks like the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, parks like the Labrador Nature and Coastal Walk (not forgetting the Rail Corridor, which combines both!). Thanks for sharing, Audi! – LHL (Photo courtesy of Audi Khalid)

Happy to host Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte (or as he is officially known in the Netherlands, Minister-President Rutte) to lunch at the Istana yesterday. Singapore’s ties with the Netherlands go back a long way. The Dutch were in Southeast Asia from the 17th century, and Dutch companies have been in Singapore for more than 100 years. I recently attended Royal Dutch Shell’s 125th anniversary in Singapore! A Dutchman, Dr Albert Winsemius, had a key role in Singapore’s development, serving as our Advisor for more than two decades. He helped to transform Singapore into a manufacturing, financial and aviation hub. Our relations encompass many areas. The Netherlands is our largest European investor; our armed forces work together; and our universities and companies have joint projects in water management, marine and offshore, petrochemical, logistics, IT, and emerging areas like cyber-security and fintech. I am confident our bilateral relations will continue to grow from strength to strength. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

It will serve you well as you journey through life’s stages. :) – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Finally home after a week in Peru for #APEC2016. Still feeling jetlagged because of the 13-hour time difference, so went for a #jalanjalan at the Botanic Gardens with Ho Ching after dinner. The orchids outside the National Orchid Garden looked vibrant, back-lit against the darkness. – LHL (Photo by me)

It’s a wrap for #APEC2016. Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has been a great host. I met many friendly and warm Peruvians over the past few days, who made my visit so much more enjoyable. Thank you for posing so readily for my camera. Off to the airport now, can't wait to be home after a long week. :) - LHL (Photos by me)

Lima's Pacific Ocean coastline is very scenic. For centuries, the ocean has been a great highway linking countries and peoples. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is one way we can strengthen this connection, and build prosperity, security and stability in the Asia-Pacific. At the TPP leaders meeting on the sidelines of #APEC2016 today, I urged leaders to carry on with the TPP ratification process, Singapore is going ahead with legislation to give effect to the TPP. Hope everyone can take long view, stay the course and not undo the good work that has been done over the past six years. - LHL #sunset (Photo by me)

Found some time amidst the meetings and #APEC2016 preparation to #jalanjalan in the Barranco District – a Peruvian hipster enclave – before dinner with my delegation. The team has been working hard even before the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting started this week. My thanks to everyone who is working hard to make #APEC2016 a success. Here’s one of the many pretty vantage points at Barranco. – LHL (Photo by me)

Finally landed in @lima, Peru, after a 30-hour journey. I am here for the #APEC2016 meetings. Peru’s openness to trade and its colourful culture – where ancient Inca heritage meets European, African and Asian influences – makes it a fitting host for this round of APEC meetings. Looking forward to discussions on how we can grow and build stronger partnerships amidst a slowing and increasingly uncertain economic climate. – LHL (The Cathedral of Lima is one of the oldest buildings in Lima.

I missed the peak last night, but came out of my office at 9 tonight after hosting dinner for Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel, to find the #supermoon rising after the rain cleared. Caught this shot from the gardens. – LHL (Photo by me)

When I visited Luxembourg in 2014, PM Xavier Bettel was a most gracious host. He took me and my delegation on an impromptu walking tour of his beautiful and historic capital. So I was very glad to reciprocate his hospitality during his working visit to Singapore today. I showed him @gardensbythebay and he remarked that our current rainy and overcast weather reminded him of home! In the evening, we had a good meeting at the Istana followed by dinner. We may not seem to have a lot in common with Luxembourg, but both of us are small countries surrounded by much larger neighbours. We also face similar constraints with resources and land area. So we can learn from and cooperate with each other. Am flying off tonight to attend the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting (AELM) in Peru. It’s a long way there! – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

Had a fruitful retreat with President @jokowi (and a go at batik painting) in Semarang yesterday. I have an ancestral link to this city. A century ago, my maternal grandfather Kwa Siew Tee came to Malaya from Semarang, married, and settled in Singapore. So it meant something special for me to visit Semarang for the first time, to discuss with President Jokowi cooperation between Singapore and Indonesia. Indonesia is a close neighbour and an important partner. Our economies are intertwined. I told President Jokowi that Singapore is keen to do more. We will be celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations with Indonesia next year. Looking forward to hosting President Jokowi in Singapore for our yearly retreat. My thanks to the President for his kind and gracious hospitality! – LHL (MCI Photo by LH Goh)

“That’s no moon!” If you looked up at the sky last night and thought the moon looked a little larger and a brighter than usual, that was the #supermoon, when the full moon is closest to earth. Last night wasn’t the peak though – the moon will look its biggest at 9.52pm tonight in Singapore. The last time a supermoon was this close was almost 70 years ago, and the next time will be in 2034. Alas I will miss this phenomenon, as I shall be on my way home from Semarang. – LHL (Supermoon on 13 November 2016./ MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Just arrived in Semarang, Indonesia for a retreat with President Joko Widodo. It will be our first retreat together, following President Jokowi’s state visit to Singapore last year. Looking forward to a full day tomorrow, including opening the Kendal Industrial Park, Singapore’s latest industrial park in Indonesia. Will update with more photos then. :) – LHL (MCI Photo by LH Goh)

Caught a scenic view of Punggol River and Fernvale after the Ang Mo Kio-Sengkang West Tree Planting Day this morning. The kayakers were taking part in the Celebrate PAYM! Waterway AdvenTour’s Amazing Race. Participants had fun and enjoyed nature while helping to clean up the river at the same time. The Sengkang-Punggol region has flourished over the past 10 years – no longer an ulu part of Singapore. :) The eco-town is home to many young families who enjoy ample outdoor recreational options. Credit goes to HDB, @pubsingapore, @nparksbuzz and other agencies who made this happen through vision, planning and hard work. – LHL (Photo by me)

Singaporeans have diverse tastes, but we all share a love for food! Indeed, the way to many a Singaporean’s heart is through his stomach. :) Teck Ghee’s Active Ageing Committee (AAC) was inspired to organise cooking competitions to show off our seniors’ culinary talents. There were so many good recipes that AAC partnered students from @nanyangpoly to publish a cookbook. Titled “Food for Love, Love for Food”, the cookbook promotes healthy eating among seniors and their families. This was one of many AAC activities that keep our seniors active and engaged. The seniors worked with NYP students to choose the recipes and cook the dishes, while the Teck Ghee Senior Photography Interest Group took the photos. Glad the project could bring these two generations together - perhaps, a different way to a Singaporean’s heart. :) – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

“In a boat, fully loaded with stinky beans, Let’s row the boat to the island yonder; If our teachers are Arif Budiman, Our future will definitely excel.” Congratulations to the five recipients of this year’s Anugerah Guru Arif Budiman (Malay Language Teachers’ Award)! The Award recognises their outstanding contributions to teaching and learning Malay. Our mother tongue links us to our roots, and strengthens our multi-cultural Singaporean spirit and identity. Being fluent in more than one language is also a competitive advantage. We can use English in the global economy and our mother tongue to engage others in Southeast Asia. I am glad schools are actively promoting Malay Language and culture to students. Teachers play an important role helping students to learn, understand and appreciate our mother tongue. I hope this year’s award winners will continue their exemplary work, and inspire their students and fellow teachers. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Did you know that Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery is Singapore’s oldest Buddhist monastery, more than 100 years old? Today, I joined the Buddhist community at the official opening of the Dharma Hall, the latest addition to the monastery. The Hall is the result of twenty years of hard work. Buddhists form the largest religious group in Singapore. The community strongly emphasises values like selflessness, compassion and tolerance, and makes important contributions to our racial and religious harmony. Congratulations to Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery for your newly opened Dharma Hall! Thank you to all members of the monastery for your continued support and valuable work done to engage all Singaporeans, regardless of race, language or religion. – LHL (Photo by me)

Tried out the Google Tilt Brush, which lets you paint in 3D in virtual reality. This was one of the new tech I was shown this morning at the launch of Google’s new Asia Pacific headquarters. @google's APAC office in Singapore has grown from 24 employees in 2007 – just like a startup – to 1000 today! Having the campus here is a step on our #SmartNation journey, and will hopefully attract more people to become engineers in Singapore. Tech is disruptive, and we expect to be disrupted. But with partners like Google, Singapore will come up on the right side of the disruption. – LHL #googlehousewarming (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

We don’t often see a birthday cake decorated with 20 red chillies! This pulut kuning cake was served at the 25th anniversary charity dinner of the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP – @amp_singapore) last night. The AMP has played a valuable role in the Malay/Muslim community since their formation in 1991. Aside from their education, youth and social assistance programmes, AMP has also invested in innovative projects such as Common Space – an incubator to groom start ups from the community. In a multi-racial society, our goal is for everyone to progress and leave no group behind. Congratulations to AMP, and thank you for your contributions! – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)
