Nathan pays ‘sentimental visit’ to Muar
MUAR: This town received a distinguished visitor yesterday.
Singapore President S.R. Nathan and his wife Urmila Nandey arrived at 11am and toured several places, including two temples.
It was a “sentimental visit” for Nathan who had lived here for several years.
He said he wanted to revisit all the places he had known since he was six or seven years old.
