Dear Readers,

We are pleased to present you with issue 34 of HDB’s community publication Life Storeys.

In this issue, we show you around HDB developments that boast amazing views in Talk of the Town. Check out the story to explore the sights that residents in these areas enjoy on a daily basis.

Yishun town may not have world-famous landmarks, but this constantly evolving northern town hosts numerous fun and exciting spots worth making a trip for. Find out more about these interesting places and the array of delicious food options within the estate in Around the Block.

The home is the most common place for accidents to happen. A Nurse Clinician from Outram Community Hospital offers handy tips on treating minor injuries in Our Life Stories. Also featured in this section are important information on the proper disposal methods for both everyday trash and bulky items. In addition, we have onboard local singer-songwriter Tim De Cotta to share about his post-pandemic comeback and anecdotes of his everyday life in his neighbourhood.


To further improve connectivity and encourage greener modes of commute, the cycling paths in Punggol and Sengkang are undergoing expansion. At the same time, new measures are being introduced to enhance the safety of pedestrians and riders. Read about them in Livin’ It Up. In view of World Diabetes Day in November, we recommend some lifestyle and dietary modifications for people with the condition to continue living well and staying active.
