SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is back at work after a two-week break from Dec 12 to Dec 25.

When he was on leave, he kept his Facebook followers - more than 926,000 of them - updated by sharing holiday snapshots taken during his nine-day private trip to South Korea, including pictures of scenery and interesting Korean dishes he tasted.

He also spent time around Singapore - including going to Sentosa for "a jalanjalan" - before heading back to work on Dec 26, when he was at the opening of Downtown Line 2.

Here's a look at what PM Lee did during his break, via the posts he and his wife Ho Ching put on Facebook:
