Festive cheer

Trains no longer stop at the old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, but the national monument still pulled in the holiday crowds during its open house yesterday.

About 500 people visited to snap pictures and reminisce.

There was also plenty of festive cheer as Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife hosted a Chinese New Year open house at their home, just days after he underwent surgery to remove his prostate gland.

Several MPs posted photos on Facebook and MP Denise Phua noted he was "slimmer-looking".
