Dear Readers,

We are pleased to present you with issue 32 of HDB’s community publication Life Storeys.

In this issue’s Talk of the Town, we showcase a series of HDB blocks that are not only photogenic, but have also won accolades for their outstanding designs. Follow our journey around the island to capture these aesthetically pleasing buildings in their full glory.


From a new halal food court to an award-winning taekwondo studio, we uncover some hidden gems of Pasir Ris in Around the Block. While this eastern town is now known for its various recreational facilities, you can still find traces of its rich history in the natural and built environment around the estate.


Aimed at providing residents in Clementi and Bukit Timah conducive spaces to work or study, the “Switch Work Booths for Community” initiative is a collaboration between HDB, People’s Association, and workspace provider Switch. Find out more about this year-long pilot in Our Life Stories.


Home maintenance begins the moment you receive the keys to your flat. We share tips on minor maintenance works that homeowners can easily carry out to ensure a safe and comfortable living environment. Also featured in this section is calligraphy artist Ryan Loi, who tells us about his passion for this art form and his enduring love for Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.


In the spirit of SG Together, the Love Our ‘Hood Initiative encourages residents to co-create solutions that address municipal issues. Check out some of these ideas in Livin’ It Up. To wrap up this issue, we share some ways to keep cool during the hottest months of the year without turning to the air conditioner.


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