To have tea with any foreign leader is very exciting. For most of us, meeting the president of Singapore, Tony Tan, was not only memorable, but a first experience. We were able to enter the Instana which would not have been possible without APYLS. Everyone was very impressed by both the beauty of the house and the warm welcome by the president himself. Before the president arrived, seeing all the delegates from all 13 countries positioned in the room was surreal. This morning, Mr. Bilahari Kausikan talked about the importance of the international community in the first Summit Dialogue. Seeing all the countries lined up made the notion of international interaction seem real.
