Not only does Mrs Lee make elaborate quilts and masks, she also attaches a “birth certificate” to each mask.

They each have a name, with the “birth certificate” of each mask containing the following details:

“I was born in: September 2020, Singapore.
DNA: I was made from Liberty of London tana lawn and Japanese cotton fabric with German thread. Latex free elastic.
Use: Protection against Covid and other airborne diseases, but I am not a surgical mask
Care: Gentle wash, medium iron. Careful not to iron the elastic. Send me to my mother for repairs or elastic replacements.”

During the Covid-19 Circuit Breaker, Mr Lee would share photos of the masks and quilts that Mrs Lee made him.

In a Facebook post on April 2, the younger brother of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong shared a photo of his very own homemade mask and captioned it: “My reusable mask, just made for me.”

While the younger Mr Lee did not state who the mask was made by, many netizens who commented on his post assumed that it was made by his wife.

In March this year, Mr Lee also revealed a small slice of what goes on in his household during this Covid-19 outbreak period when Singaporeans are all advised to stay at home.

“Quilted while locked down. By my talented wife,” Mr Lee captioned, sharing a photo of a quilt made by his wife. /TISG
