Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong taking a selfie with schoolboy Mohamad Rafael Effendy Razali yesterday after presenting him with a festive gift from his wishlist.

Mr Wong, an MP for the GRC, also played a game with some of the children at the event, organised by the North West Community Development Council and CDL.
