Sayang Sembawang September 2017

 

Dear Residents

This year marks Singapore’s 52nd year of independence – an occasion that we celebrate with great joy and happiness. May Singapore continue to flourish in the years to come, growing steadfastly in prosperity and strength! 

As part of our yearly tradition, we celebrated National Day together as one Sembawang family, commemorating the years of sacrifice and hard work which have made our little red dot into a thriving and prosperous home for everyone (Page 3 -5). A little closer to home, we also celebrated the launch of new developments in Sembawang GRC, such as the BW Monastery (Page 7) and the much-anticipated Kampung Admiralty (Page 8). Kampung Admiralty especially, will function as the heart of our growing community here in Sembawang, promoting inter-generational bonding and providing cohesive care for our pioneer generation.

What also brings a community together is good food, and Sembawang GRC has no lack of it! This issue, we bring you a special feature called #MakanTrailSembawang (Page 9), which shares some of the hidden food gems in our corner of the North. Why not make a date with your family and friends to explore Sembawang GRC together and try out all this good food?

How well do you know your neighbours? Here in Sembawang, we are fortunate to be part of a close-knit community, made possible only through caring and thoughtful neighbours. Check out some of the stories of neighbours living in Kampung Sembawang, and find out some of their simple tips on how to get to know your neighbours better (Page 10 – 11).
 
Home is truly made up by the people who live in it. I believe that by working together, we can continue to make Sembawang and Singapore into a wonderful and gracious home for everyone. Majulah Singapura!
