Dear Readers,

We are pleased to present you with issue 30 of HDB’s community publication Life Storeys.

In this issue, we bring you highlights from HDB Community Week 2021, which has returned after a year’s hiatus to celebrate the community spirit in our heartlands. Find out what took place during the virtual event in Talk of the Town.

We headed west to discover popular dining and shopping spots in Bukit Panjang, as well as interesting landmarks worth making a trip for. Follow our journey in Around the Block.

While the pandemic has increased our time spent at home, it does not have to stop us from staying fit and active. In collaboration with SingHealth Community Hospitals, we share some simple exercises that you can try at home in Our Life Stories. Also featured in this section is local DJ-host Joakim Gomez, who talks about his growth since his Singapore Idol days and his love for Bishan.

We pay homage to Singapore’s hawker culture, which was added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity last year, by visiting five hawker centres across the island. Check out our recommendations in Livin’ It Up. Whether you are applying for a new flat or buying a resale flat, learn about the Enhanced CPF Housing Grant to help you secure your first home. In the same section, we show you how to maximise storage space via fuss-free and affordable ways.

Last but not least, stand a chance to win shopping vouchers by participating in our Readers’ Quiz!

We hope you enjoy reading this issue of Life Storeys.
