MRS. BUSH: President Bush and I are so happy to have this opportunity to visit Singapore. We went this morning to the Asian cultures museum and had a great visit there. He's making a courtesy call right now on your Deputy President, because your President is out of the country. And tonight we'll see your Prime Minister and be here for a dinner.
