Residents spontaneously approached Mr and Mrs Chiam to shake their hands as they made their way through the estate. The Chiams, accompanied by party members, were clearly still much loved by residents there. "Everywhere I go," Mr Chiam told us later, "people received me like a long-lost brother."
Mr Chiam later took a short break and had "chwee kueh" and coffee at the coffeeshop for breakfast, before making his way with his party members to Toa Payoh for another round of visits.
Mr Chiam, though weakened by his two strokes he has suffered, was evidently in good spirits and good physical health.
Publichouse.sg was there and here is a short video of the Chiams' morning visit.
