Dear Readers,

We are pleased to present you with issue 33 of HDB’s community publication Life Storeys.

In this issue, we bring you highlights from HDB Community Week 2022. In its 10th edition this year, the annual event comprised both physical and virtual components, with a theme that honours acts of neighbourliness. Read all about the various programmes celebrating this meaningful event in Talk of the Town.

Most of us have been to Serangoon for one reason or another, but there is much more to uncover in this town besides its famed food spots and cafes. Join us to explore Serangoon’s unique landmarks and even an area dedicated to pet stores in Around the Block.


Ensuring your windows are safe and secure is every homeowner’s responsibility. In Our Life Stories, find out how to keep your windows in good condition and how to apply for the Enhancement for Active Seniors (EASE) programme. Also featured in this section are two former MasterChef Singapore contestants who have gone on to make a name for themselves in the F&B industry, as well as national athlete Thiruben Thana Rajan, who recently won a bronze medal at the 31st Southeast Asian Games.


As National Day approaches and excitement builds with celebratory events around the island, you may want to relax and unwind on the Coast-to-Coast Trail, which offers many opportunities to engage with nature and history. Check out some points of interest along this 36-kilometre route in Livin’ It Up. And if you are planning to switch to a digital lock for your front door, we have summed up the key things to look out for so you can pick the right one for your household.
