While most of us may dread returning to work after recovering from an illness, PM Lee was already back at the grind.

Along with news of his recovery, he posted about his meeting with Indonesian President Jokowi, on Wednesday (7 June).

He spoke at the conference, emphasising Indonesia’s commitment to sustainable development in its new capital city, Nusantara.


Hope PM Lee stays in the pink of health

Seeing PM Lee back to his spritely self again is certainly heartening, as he gets back to his duties as Prime Minister.

Hopefully, he’ll continue having a clean bill of health.

With Singapore’s presidential election due to happen not long from now, there’ll surely be lots to do.
