Singapore – It was only in November last year when the late Lee Kuan Yew’s youngest son, was seen having breakfast with Dr. , a former presidential candidate and founder of the new political party called Progress Singapore Party.

Amidst speculation that the two are forming an alliance, the two were seen once more sharing a meal together on February 2, 2019 (Saturday) at Teck Ghee Market, thanks to an anonymous tip sent to The Independent Singapore. They were joined by four other men, presumably Dr. Tan’s trusted advisors. During their meal, the men were approached and greeted by the members of the public and asked to take some photos.

Last November 4, both Lee Hsien Yang and Dr. Tan Cheng Bock were seen having breakfast at a famous hawker centre in Blk 726 West Coast Market. Dr. Tan gave an update on the encounter via a Facebook post and said: “It was a good breakfast, not only the food, but the sharing we had on world affairs and the current state of politics in Singapore.”

More on the recent on goings between the two men can be read below:
