Congratulations to all students and their families whom I met at the Teck Ghee CCC Bursary and Edusave Awards this weekend! Snapped quite a few wefies with award recipients over the two days. These young ladies, (from left) Dyan Nurqalisya, Janece Yong and Uma Maheswari, all have inspiring stories behind their recent successes. I hope they will continue to dream big, do well, and follow their dreams! Over the last fortnight, students in other constituencies have been receiving their Edusave and other awards too. To all recipients, continue to do your best, and make the most of the learning opportunities that your schools offer. At the same time, I hope you will do more to help your peers and others around you so that together, we can build a better Singapore for all. :) – LHL #facesofsg (Photo by me)

Met Aziz bin Ahmad (in blue shirt) at the Teck Ghee CCC Bursary and Edusave Awards this weekend. Aziz came with his family to witness his 9-year old son, Adam Zafran, receive the Edusave Merit Bursary award. Aziz brought along a wonderful surprise for me – a photo of him receiving the SBC Union House Bursary Award from me, 31 years ago in 1986! So glad to know that the bursary helped Aziz and his family back then, and that he is doing well now. Also happy that Adam is following in his father’s footsteps, studying hard and doing well in school! – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

பொங்கலோ பொங்கல்! Happy Pongal to all who celebrate it! Pongal is a Tamil harvest festival held to mark the start of the auspicious month of Thai. It is also the name of the rice dish prepared for the festival. Made with milk and jaggery, the milk is allowed to boil over to symbolise overflowing fortune. Pongal is one of the many beautiful festivals enjoyed in multiracial Singapore. Little India is holding events to celebrate it. Why not head over to take in the sparkling lights and have a go at cooking Pongal yourself? – LHL (SPH Photo Singapore Press Holdings Limited. Reproduced with permission.)

Alvin Lim sent me this photo of the first sunrise of 2017, taken on New Year’s Day at the Merlion Park. The Park is a popular spot for professional and leisure photographers taking sunrise photos. The forecast was cloudy that morning, so Alvin was glad to capture this dramatic shot of the sun peeking through the clouds. He shared: “I take that as a good sign for Singapore. :) ” Thanks for sharing your photo! – LHL (Photo courtesy of Alvin Lim)

Silent and stoic, she keeps the world in motion. But our bond with her is precarious, and we are ever at her mercy. #guesswhere and #guesswho? :) – LHL ---- Many of you got it right! I photographed the ‘Force of Nature’ at Marina Barrage one evening last month. It is one in a series of sculptures by Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn, who sought to depict nature’s destructive power after seeing the impact of natural disasters around the world. Singapore is fortunate to be sheltered from many natural disasters, but we too must respect nature. With global warming, we are seeing more extreme weather, dry spells and intense rainstorms. Even man-made incidents like the oil spill in the Johor Strait on Tuesday affect us, harming the wildlife and the livelihoods of people working in surrounding areas. My thanks to the @nea_sg (NEA), @maritime_sg (MPA), @avasingapore (AVA), @nparksbuzz (NParks), and Johor Port Authority for doing their utmost to clean up the waters. – LHL (Photo by me)

Walking along Changi Beach on the New Year weekend, I saw this man sitting under a tree, alone yet not alone. He looked like a foreign worker, calling home on his cellphone. As we enjoy the festive days with friends and family, let us spare a thought for the foreign workers who have left their families behind to work in a distant land. They build our HDB flats and MRT lines, keep our roads clean and parks green, and take care of our young and elderly. They slog and save to support loved ones, but at least with the internet and cellphones they can keep in touch, and feel not quite so far away. – LHL (Photo by me)

Tomorrow is the start of the new school year. Time for our young ones to don their uniforms, pick up their backpacks, and head off to school. It is a busy and exciting time for students, parents and teachers. For those starting in a new school, be yourself, get to know your classmates and teachers, and enjoy your new adventure. For those returning to school, I wish you an inspiring year of discovery and learning. Have fun on your first day at school! :) – LHL (Photo courtesy of @moesingapore)

Happy 2017! Rung in the new year with Teck Ghee residents young and old at Bishan-AMK park last night. Glad to see so many join in the carnival and countdown, capped off with spectacular fireworks! A curious fact about this New Year: #DidYouKnow that for some parts of the world, 2017 started a little later? That’s because a leap second was added on 31 December 2016 at 23h59m59s (UTC) – about 8am Singapore time today – to sync our clocks to the earth’s slowing rotation. – LHL (MCI photo by Terence Tan)

“Even people from the smallest countries in the world can do extraordinary things”. The Singaporeans mentioned in my New Year Message (including the person I borrowed this quote from :) ), and many others I met this past year, have proven that we can achieve anything we set our hearts on, especially when we work together. The year ahead may look uncertain, but whatever the challenges, I am confident we will pull through. This has been and will continue to be our story – ordinary Singaporeans, regardless of race, language and religion, doing extra­ordinary things together. With this enduring spirit, we will make Singapore a better and happier home for ourselves and for our next generation. You can watch my New Year Message at www.youtube.com/pmosingapore (click on the link in my profile). – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Spent some time reviewing 2016 before I went on leave. It has been a full year. We have been upgrading our economy, strengthening ties with partner countries, and making Singapore a City for All Ages. Despite the uncertain times, I am confident Singapore will cope. Our people are resilient and united, and many are doing their part to help others and contribute back to society. Find out about them, and how they make Singapore stand out in the world, in my New Year Message this evening. As we prepare to usher in 2017, do take time to reflect on the past year and share your notable moments here with me. – LHL (PMO Video)

Karuizawa lies at the foot of Mount Asama, a volcano that last erupted in 2015. It's one of the most active volcanoes in Japan, but it thankfully stayed quiet during our visit. :) (Photo by me)

Rounding off my Japan trip hiking around Karuizawa, a mountain town about an hour away from Tokyo by the Shinkansen. It’s a lovely place to visit if you’re a nature lover. It’s home to many parks and beautiful mountain vistas (and also an active volcano, but more on that later. :) ) Pictured here is Shiraito Waterfall. The water does not actually flow down a river, but emerges from underground to cascade over the rocks! – LHL (Photo by me)

Enjoyed the bracing cold on an invigorating hike through the Bijin Bayashi Forest (beautiful woman forest) near Tokamachi in Niigata. The forest is so named because of the slender and beautiful forms of the beech trees. There were not so many visitors, so we had the forest mostly to ourselves. – LHL (Photo by me)

Spent a white Christmas weekend in snowy terrain – visited Jigokudani Yaen-koen (Snow Monkey Park) and Bijin Bayashi Forest. The Jigokudani snow monkeys (actually wild Japanese macaques) soak themselves in the natural hot springs in the park to escape the winter cold. It was fascinating to watch the monkeys in their natural environment. They are used to human visitors (who are strictly forbidden to feed them) and mostly ignore us. But try Googling “snow monkey cellphone” to see what can happen if you get too close. :) – LHL (Photo by me)

Merry Christmas to one and all! 25 December is a joyous day for Christians, as they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. We don’t get snow in Singapore, so instead of a white Christmas we have a green one! Ho Ching and I spotted this jolly green “snowman” outside the Botany Centre at the Singapore Botanic Gardens during a recent #jalanjalan. The Gardens have been beautifully decorated this season, full of Christmas cheer, with a festive green touch. And the snowmen don’t melt! :) – LHL (Photo by me)

Chilly weather, but enjoying the sights & tranquil surroundings of Mt Kugami in Tsubame-Sanjo, Niigata Prefecture. Was rewarded with a rainbow for braving the cold! – LHL (Photo by me)

Why are these statues wearing hats and scarves? Once upon a time, a kind old man thought the statues would feel cold, so put hats on their heads to protect them from the chill. The statues were grateful, and one night visited the old man at home, bringing him gifts and good things. And that is how the custom began. A Buddhist tale, but just right for Christmas! :) The statues are at the Kokujoji Temple 国上寺 in Tsubame-Sanjo, in Niigata Prefecture. The town is home to scenic parks and shrines, which saw visitors (including us!) despite the freezing rain. Uploaded some of my photos over on my Facebook page. Hope to share more soon! – LHL (Photo by me)

I will be on leave until the end of the month. Will update as and when I see something interesting. :) Meanwhile, here’s a #mirrorimage picture I recently snapped at the Botanic Gardens. I have read how the existence of a real Santa Claus has been mathematically disproved. But in quantum physics virtual particles can momentarily exist (especially around Christmas time), and even be in two places at once. So perhaps I discovered a virtual Santa? :) P.S. And have a happy 冬至, or Winter Solstice Festival! Today is the Winter Solstice by the Chinese calendar, when the sun is furthest south in the sky, and the day is shortest in the Northern hemisphere and longest in the Southern hemisphere. I read the Zaobao story today lamenting how 汤圆 (rice dumplings), a traditional food for the festival, seemed to be less popular nowadays. So I got some 汤圆 for the Ministers as dessert after our usual weekly lunch. They were good! 祝大家冬至快乐! – LHL (Photo by me)

Best wishes to all of you who received ‘N’ Level results today. If you have done well – congratulations! If you did less well than you expected or hoped, take heart. Use this opportunity to reflect on your journey thus far. Take time to recharge and thank your parents, teachers, and friends who have stood by you. Whichever path ahead you choose, find one that fits your passion and strengths. Stay hungry, driven, and never stop trying. With that, success will follow. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Went for a #jalanjalan at Upper Peirce Reservoir Park around sunset last weekend. Our reservoirs play an important part in our lives, not just as a water source, but also beautiful places to relax with friends and families. As we work to provide enough clean water for all of us, please help take care of our wonderful green spaces, so that we can all continue to enjoy them. – LHL (Photo by me)

Indulged in durians for the second time this week. :) Hosted Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and his delegation to a nasi lemak lunch today. Mr Duterte is here on a 2-day official visit. We capped off our meal with some excellent D13 and Mao Shan Wang durians. Also enjoyed some very good Malaysian durians when PM Najib hosted dinner for me and my delegation in Putrajaya on Tuesday. International diplomacy is indeed dangerous for waistlines! :) – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

I first met Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte at the ASEAN Summit in September. Happy that he accepted President Tony Tan’s invitation to make an official visit to Singapore. He told me he was last here 30 years ago, for a court case! Singapore and the Philippines enjoy a long-standing friendship. We have strong economic ties and warm people-to-people links. There is a lively Filipino community in Singapore and many Filipino tourists come here to enjoy our food and attractions. At our meeting today, Mr Duterte and I discussed terrorism, the South China Sea and the US role in the region. Look forward to the Philippines’ Chairmanship of ASEAN next year, which will also coincide with the 50th anniversary of founding of ASEAN. – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

When countries work together, their peoples benefit. The KL-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) Agreement we signed yesterday is a major joint project. It will transform the way Singaporeans and Malaysians do business, interact and socialise. It’s still a long way to go before the first train runs in 2026, but there is a strong political will to ensure its completion and success. When completed, there will be more exchanges between our people and our ties will grow even closer. Long may this continue. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Received my new PAssion Silver Concession Card yesterday. I am now a certified senior citizen! :) This new card was launched last week and replaces the purple Senior Citizen Concession Card.

Ishaan Khanna sent me this photo of a beautiful sunset at the Chinese Gardens. The place is tranquil and serene, a perfect spot to wind down your Monday and recharge for the week ahead. The Chinese (and Japanese) Gardens will be revamped as part of the Jurong Lake Gardens development masterplan. Familiar features such as the pagoda, tea house and connecting bridge will remain, but visitors can look forward to larger green spaces and more recreational facilities when construction is completed. – LHL (Photo courtesy of Ishaan Khanna)

‘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)
