And while he's in Singapore, he also appears to be busy meeting different folks from all walks of life as well.

Met PM Lee

In a Facebook post, Prime Minister Lee said that he caught up with Cook and had a "lively exchange on how the tech scene has changed" since the previous time they met, which was about four years ago.

Apart from meeting PM Lee, Cook also met some secondary school students in the Swift Accelerator Programme, where students learn how to code.

He also met with game developers:

Met local musicians

Cook also met up with local musician Sezairi Sezali and Jonathan Chua from the Sam Willows.

According to Cook's tweet on Dec. 12 morning, he said that Chua showed him around Zendyll Productions. He also got to listen to a preview of Sezairi's new track.

Met Theresa Goh & Mr Brown

Cook also tweeted about his meeting with Paralympian Theresa Goh, where they chatted about the Apple Watch.

During that meeting, he also spoke to local Singaporean blogger Lee Kin Mun, also known as mrbrown.

Lee posted a photo of the three of them on his Instagram, saying that it was an "honour" to meet Cook and Goh.

Cook has often held such impromptu meetups all over the world.
