Whenever I meet our leaders, I never offer my hand first. It is always them who take the first step, even PM Lee. I know my rights. And when there is eye contact from afar, they smile and nod. I'm not talking MPs, they are Ministers Ng Eng Hen, Teo Chee Hean and Vivian Balakrishnan. I almost fell when Minister Ng Eng Hen smiled at me because the people around him told me he's a tough guy.
