Happy SG51!

A resident sent me this picture from the National Day dinner in Tampines Central. They remembered that when PM visited me when I was still in hospital, I gave PM two thumbs up. So now the Tampines family is giving me two thumbs up too. Very sweet of them. Cheered me up even though I could not join them at the dinner. The doctors say I must avoid crowded places. While I was in intensive care, I had a lung infection. I feel great now, been keeping up the rehab in between reading papers from MOF and the CFE (Committee on the Future Economy), but the doctors say the lungs take time to recover fully and a new infection could set back that process. Because of that, I also cannot attend the parade today. So I’ll be joining all of you who are catching the parade on TV at home! I will probably do my stretches and exercises at the same time 🙂

I thank you all for your warm wishes, prayers and words of encouragement. They mean a lot to me. Thanks too to the team of Tampines MPs, Mr Sin Boon Ann and grassroots activists for taking care of Tampines GRC, and to DPM and my colleagues for covering my various duties at MOF, CFE and other committees.

A very happy National Day to all Singaporeans! Do share with fellow Singaporeans your hopes and dreams for SG51 and beyond!
