SINGAPORE: Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has some advice for Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin as he recuperates from his recent surgery: “Eat in moderation, but no need for any ‘pantang’ (taboo) about food.”
Lee, who posted a photo of him visiting Muhyiddin on his Facebook page yesterday, said the minister was recovering at a hospital in Singapore following an operation.
“Glad that it was successful, and that he is doing well.
“I shared with him my own doctor’s advice when I was ill – eat in moderation, but no need for any ‘pantang’ about food. I remember even enjoying durians!” he wrote, adding that he wished Muhyiddin a speedy recovery.
Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean had also visited Muhyiddin on July 30.
Muhyiddin underwent an operation to remove a growth on his pancreas that was detected at an early stage.
He went on leave on July 12 to undergo follow-up treatment and is expected to be back at work in a month’s time.
