Performers from this year’s Chingay Parade welcoming guests at the annual Chinese New Year Garden Party for grassroots leaders at the Istana on Sunday.

At the event was Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who had skipped a Tanjong Pagar event last week as he had been warded in hospital. He joined Tanjong Pagar GRC grassroots leaders for a group photo, along with fellow Tanjong Pagar GRC MP Indranee Rajah. Some 4,000 grassroots leaders and spouses attended the party hosted by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Cabinet ministers.
