Several MPs posted photos on Facebook and MP Denise Phua noted he was "slimmer-looking". PM Lee, who with his wife Ho Ching was dressed in festive red, also posted on his Facebook page, writing: "Had my AMK GRC and Sengkang-West SMC team over for my usual CNY makan today. I couldn't spend as long with them as usual, but it was good to meet everyone, and see them in cheerful spirits. Thank you for all your good wishes!"
