Dear Readers,

We are pleased to present you with issue 35 of HDB’s community publication Life Storeys.

As you look forward to making the best of 2023, HDB continues to make every HDB town more sustainable and liveable through the Green Towns Programme. One of the initiatives in this programme is to support LTA to install more EV chargers in the HDB car parks by 2025. Read about it in Talk of the Town.

Besides the many dining establishments Geylang is known for, did you know that it is also home to several historic buildings and charming specialty shops? This issue’s Around the Block shines a spotlight on some of them.

While the common spaces in HDB estates could help to encourage social interactions, some residents require further support. Find out how social prescribing improves the health of socially isolated residents in Our Life Stories. What do you do when you experience spalling concrete, leaky ceiling, and faulty windows? Another article in this section offers solutions. This section also profiles Fauzie Laily, a Bedok resident and all-round entertainer who can sing, act and host.

What else can you do to woo your loved one this Valentine’s Day apart from chocolates, roses and a fancy dinner? Livin’ It Up suggests some alternative heartland-based places and activities. Also in this section are tips on how you should react the next time you encounter wildlife.

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.
