Welcome to the 24th issue of Life Storeys!
The Singapore Bicentennial marks the 200th anniversary of Sir Stamford Raffles’ arrival on our little red dot. Besides the centrepiece event at Fort Canning Centre, celebrations extended to the heartlands through a series of roadshows islandwide. Read all about them in Talk of the Town.
In Around the Block, we take you on a tour of iconic food finds in Bedok, as well as social enterprises that have set up shop with the help of HDB’s initiatives. National Day may be over but patriotism remained strong at the Stand Up For Our Singapore event featured in this section.
Find out how residents’ days were brightened by the lively Chong Pang Fun Fiesta 2019 and Bedok South Secondary School students’ mass block visits in Our Life Stories. We also caught up with FLY Entertainment artiste Suhaimi Yusof for his thoughts on turning 50 and what humour means to him.
Arts continue to be the focus in the next segment, with creative spaces in Singapore, and a range of locally produced art and literary works taking centre stage in Livin’ It Up.
Last but not least, stand a chance to win shopping vouchers by participating in our Readers’ Quiz!
