Mr Goh wrote on Facebook:

"Just dropped in at Mr Lee Kuan Yew's office to wish him happy birthday. He was dressed smartly in his casual red jacket.

"He looked well and sharp and spoke with a strong voice. Unfortunately, he was having one of those hiccups triggered off by some allergic irritations.

"Even then, he was getting ready for his Chinese lessons. I cannot help but marvel at the spirit and fight of The Singapore Lion.

"More good years to you, Mr Lee."
