Dear Readers,

Welcome to Issue 22 of Life Storeys! This issue, we highlight the spirit of volunteerism of our residents around the island. Check out the innovative ideas Woodlands and Sembawang residents came up with to create friendly and lively neighbourhoods at the HDB Build-a-thon 2019 in Talk of the Town!

Find out how the Tampines West Merchant’s Association brought the Lunar New Year festive spirit right to the doorsteps of Tampines residents in Around the Block! For this issue’s town feature, we travel to the northern town of Woodlands to discover its unique attractions. We also introduce HDB’s EASE programme, which improves the comfort and safety of your home in your golden years.

In Our Life Stories, our young eco-warriors share with us their motivations for volunteering to guide their peers around Punggol, Singapore’s first eco-town. Also in this section, esteemed architectural photographer Darren Soh reminisces about his childhood days growing up in Queenstown.

Finally, we admire our beautiful HDB blocks all around the island in Livin’ It Up! From retro images to sleek modern designs, feast your eyes upon the Instagram-worthy facades of our flats.

Remember to participate in the Readers’ Survey to stand a chance to win some shopping vouchers! We hope you enjoy reading this issue of Life Storeys.
