D
id you know the Town Council has built a fenced-off
dog run at the N4 park? Dog owner Victor, who lives
nearby, looks forward to more people using it.
“We were delighted to find the construction we saw
was a dog run. The next nearest one is at Bishan Park
– quite a distance away from us.” He has already mailed
the Town Council with some suggestions, like lighting for
night-time romps, grass-cutting and ant control.
The dog run is ready – all it’s missing is your dog!

F
orty students from Ang Mo Kio
Secondary visited three blocks in our
town on 15 April on a tripartite mission.
Armed with posters designed by their
peers, they went door to door to tell us
about the dangers of high-rise litter and
corridor clutter. And after they had delivered their message, “Do you have any
plastic recyclables for us?”
Our clean and green
Superheroes
S
tudents from Jingshan Primary
learned through litter – well, the
litter they collected – on 24 April,
when they cleaned up around our
blocks. Getting up close and personal with the things people throw
on the ground, they got quite angry
with litterbugs, and some declared
they would make sure their parents
didn’t litter. Afterwards, the litter
they collected was sorted, weighed,
and the data used to plot a graph
for a worksheet. They learned social
graces and math in one morning!

Rhythms W
in Unity
e held our annual celebration
of Indian music and dance on
26 May at Xinmin Secondary. About
a hundred – all ages, all races – came
to sample Indian culture and cuisine.
We saw rangoli and pookolam,
the traditional flower and floor art.
We listened to kids recitations and
watched a wonderful variety show of
music and dance.
Mr. Inderjit Singh said that this
event “teaches us a lot about Indian
culture. It also helps welcome the
new residents from India into our
multicultural community.” He said our
“unity is an advantage in a world torn
apart by racial intolerance.”
Arts at Cheng San
A
ll across the island, the
PAssionArts movement has been
bringing crafts and colour to the
heartlands. On 13 April, it came to
our neck of the woods.
Called PAssionArts with a
Thousand Hearts, the festival turned
the Cheng San CC and AMK 3G
Centre into a cultural feast for the
night. Some five thousand of us
enjoyed the tunes of a 100-man ukelele group, performances by bands,
dances of all flavours (including the
now ubiquitous Gangnam Style), and
a huge variety of arts stations you
wouldn’t believe.
Prime Minister Lee joined us
for the night, learning pottery, and
contributing to a community artwork.
He was also presented with an outstanding caricature of himself, by a
Nanyang Poly student.
Some events are more hype than
substance, but we’ll testify to that night
being truly Arts with a
Thousand Hearts!

Gagoogaboomheehee!
That was what one of the babies we interviewed had to say about taking part in our baby
show. We think he was trying to tell us he quite enjoyed himself. Or that he was hungry.
E
very year since 2008, babies
across Singapore have been
proving that it’s possible to be a
sensation at just six months. Well, if
you enter a Baby Singapore contest
in Category A.
Our Teck Ghee Healthy Baby
show, held at the Teck Ghee CC on
7 April, saw 120 babies competing
across three categories for the title
of Healthiest Baby. We also had talks
on child care by experts, and a host
of activities for the whole family. The
family portrait contest that required
three generations to take part was
especially popular.
Most of the babies we spoke to
were excited to be there. Some told
us to speak to their representatives.
Two fell asleep.

An alarming
Anniversary
T
o celebrate seven years of
Sengkang West, we had a community celebration on 1 June. Held
at the hardcourt across the road
from the Anchorvale CC, we enjoyed
performances from school groups,
games and snacks.
Taking the chance to spread an
important message, the Civil Defence
staged an evacuation drill at our
Emergency Preparedness-themed
party. Community volunteers and
firefighters stood steadfast through
heavy rain to show us why being
prepared is important.
Hundreds of us stayed through
the evening. And not just because we
forgot our umbrellas.
As part of our celebrations, goodie bags of
groceries were given to residents in need.

A
joint effort between the
Town Council and Central
CDC has resulted in a helpus-help-you programme that’s
unique. The programme was
launched during Minister Grace
Fu’s walkabout in Jalan Kayu,
held in April.
Residents of our Town who
are in need can sign up to make
inspections around their estate
for the Council. They will be
paid $5 per report, up to a maximum of $310 a month. 60% of
the money will be used to pay
their outstanding S&CC, and the
rest paid to them direct.
The Council gets timely reports on their neighbourhoods,
and those in need get help.
Everyone ends up ahead.
Since last December, 56
families have been helped. The
Council would like to help 200
families. Find out if you qualify
for PROGRESS by looking
through the criteria to the right.
The walkabout started with a brisk...walk.
If you want to join PROGRESS
you must be
 physically and mentally fit.
 willing to take steps to become
self-reliant.
 a Singapore Citizen (or a PR with
an immediate family member a Citizen).
 living within our Town (Ang Mo Kio
GRC or Sengkang West SMC) for the
contract period.
You must have
 Approached the Town Council, a
GRO, FSC, VWO or Central CDC.
 a monthly gross household income
below $1,700 (or your household
income per person must not exceed
$550.00).
 relevant supporting documents
(payslips, S&CC arrears notices, etc).
 at least 6 mths of S&CC in arrears.
 paid the current month’s S&CC.
And you must agree to let staff visit
your home to assess your needs, and
keep up with S&CC payments when
you’re on the scheme.
Now, there’s

At one of the stations, ministerial food was made.
Questions were fielded at the Hwi Yoh CC at the

The way we play
S
ports are fun. And there’s a sport
for everyone. You would have felt
that all through our Inter-Generation
Sports Day, held on 28 April at the
Mayflower Mall.
The Kebun Baru CSC, supported
by Kebun Baru GROs, led the first
Sports Day in 2011. The annual event
has grown rapidly and this year, it
saw a crowd of some 3,000 people,
and had its own partners, sponsors,
official beverage, apparel and designer – the works!
Along with fast-paced martial arts,
our Sports Day had telematches, exercises, games and booths everyone
could enjoy. All our MPs joined us for
the hearty morning, and to launch a
rather different sort of competition –
the fight against dengue!

Yio Got Talent
T
here was singing. There was
dancing. There was even a magician at the grand finals of our very
own talent show here in Yio Chu
Kang, held in April. Two hundred of
us cheered friends and family on as
they put on the show of their lives!
Experienced judges picked
three winners at the end, and the
popular vote picked the top five
crowd-pleasers.
All yours, mum!
W
Mr Yeo Guat Kwang came to wish all mothers
well, and we all enjoyed talking to him.
A Jazzercise instructor put us through
some fast beats.
Strange and vibrant inflated characters had us
Gangnam-Styling.
e celebrated Mother’s Day a
little early, on 27 April, at the
multi-purpose hall at Block 956A,
Hougang Avenue 9.
We had games, crafts, colouring
contests and special deals for mums
across a spectrum of services. It was
our way of trying our best to tell our
mums how much we loved them.
There was even a flea market.
Most mummies picked up some
food and a cold drink, and enjoyed
performances at the hall. At the void
deck of the next block, kids folded
paper carnation bouquets. Daddies
joined in too – especially the ones
who knew what was good for them.
A cosy, cool, comfortable afternoon with the family. What better way
to celebrate Mother’s Day?
A massage instructor
had us perform
a session on our
mothers on the spot
– which they quite
enjoyed!

S
ongkran is the Thai New Year,
falling across 13 to 15 April each
year. Our celebration was held fashionably late, at the AMK 3G Centre on
20 April.
Some 300 of us enjoyed Thai food,
culture and arts. It was a treat when a
Thai dancer in full costume took our
little ones through the steps of her
dance.
Then the Super Soakers came out,
and no quarter was given. Not even
for Mr Ang Hin Kee, who made the
perfect target, dressed in red. Not
a bit of him was dry when we were
done!
There are few better ways to celebrate the
new year than with a huge water gun.

ddressing issues that Malay
youth face, Sepetang Bersama
Anak Muda, meaning High-Tea with
the Youths, was held at the Cheng
San CC at the end of April. Malay
youths between 15 and 35 years old
had an afternoon of dialogue with Dr
Intan Azura, Mr Ang Hin Kee and Mr
Zaqy Mohamad.
The 60 youths, from every walk
of life, asked questions about Malay
Muslim affairs, family and education, and employment. Most felt the
dialogue to be useful – the small size
and informal setting meant everyone
was at ease to speak.
The event was organised by
the Cheng San CC MAEC, and, as
everyone found it fruitful, the MAEC
intends to try its best to hold another
session soon.
U
ntuk menangani isu-isu yang
dihadapi oleh belia Melayu,
sebuah majlis dialog yang dinamakan
Sepetang Bersama Anak Muda telah
diadakan di Balai Rakyat Cheng San
pada hujung April. Belia Melayu yang
berusia antara 15 dan 35 tahun telah
berdialog dengan Dr Intan Azura,
Encik Ang Hin Kee dan Encik Zaqy
Mohamad.
60 belia ini, yang datang dari
setiap lapisan masyarakat, telah
mengajukan soalan-soalan berhubung hal ehwal masyarakat Melayu
Islam, keluarga dan pendidikan, dan
pekerjaan. Kebanyakan berpendapat
Speaking
with our youth
Berbicara dengan
belia kita
bahawa dialog itu berguna – saiz
yang kecil dan suasana tidak formal
bererti setiap orang berasa selesa
untuk menyuarakan pendapat
mereka.
Majlis tersebut telah dianjurkan
oleh Jawatankuasa Eksekutif
Kegiatan Melayu Balai Rakyat
Cheng San, dan, oleh kerana setiap
orang mendapatinya berfaedah,
Jawatankuasa Eksekutif Kegiatan
Melayu balai rakyat tersebut bercadang untuk mengadakan satu lagi

A cafe in the park
“Let’s go to the park!” To walk and talk? For the greenery? To take
some photos? For the tranquility? To let the kids blow off steam? For
whatever...the park is great. And the Mushroom Cafe is in the park.
W
e visited Sengkang Riverside
Park in the middle of the week.
The sky was overcast and threatened
rain. It was not the kind of day you
head to the park.
But, at the wrong time, in the
wrong weather, it was still great. The
air was fresh. You were surrounded
by green hills and trees and paths
inviting you this way and that. It
seemed you could see further. And
every now and then, a bird sang.
Bliss.
And the food?
It's excellent. The Mushroom Cafe
offers most of the local favourites.
We tried the laksa, curry chicken and
beef stew. And when you learn the
cafe is run by Old Chang Kee, you
realize why it all tastes so good.
NParks is particular about who
runs the cafes they build. Old Chang
Kee has this Mushroom Cafe and
another beside MacRitchie Reservoir
because they've won a solid reputation for good taste, dependable
quality and the effort they put into
producing healthier local dishes. The
laksa and curry chicken, for example,
are cooked without coconut milk. It's
amazing, after just a few spoonfuls,
you don't miss the coconut.
So, next time you say, “Let's go
to the park!” skip packing drinks or
a picnic. Before or after your walk or
workout, you can enjoy a really wide
selection of freshly prepared local
treats – all halal! – quality guaranteed
by Old Chang Kee.
The Mushroom Cafe is at the
Sengkang Riverside Park, 50
Anchorvale Street, #01-02. Open
11.30am-9.30pm, Tuesday to Friday;
7am to 9.30pm Saturdays, Sundays
and Public Holidays; closed every
Monday.

A helping hand
from the ITE
E
ighty seniors from the activity
centre at 420 Ang Mo Kio Ave
10 visited ITE College Central in
January. The next day, dozens of
students helped in the launch of the
All C.A.R.E Harmony Trail. Then in
February, Lions Befrienders brought
seniors from our Town to celebrate
Chinese New Year with ITE students.
All these community actiivties
are part of ITE’s brand of Hands-on,
Minds-on, Hearts-on® education for
well-rounded development.
While the students have all modern
learning facilities on campus, they are
encouraged to go out into the community and meet with people in less
fortunate circumstances.
It’s a two way street. ITE also
encourages you to go into the college and look around. Check out the
range of food and retail outlets on
campus. The child-care facilities.
Banking services.
And find out about all the
upgrading and personal enrichment courses available for adults.
You’ll be amazed.
A Mayflower Secondary School community outreach project
Bye-bye
Mozzies!
W
ith the number of dengue cases
in Singapore soaring, staff and
students at Mayflower have developed, made and distributed samples
of an insect repellent derived 100%
from natural ingredients.
Bye Mozzie contains goat’s
milk, lemon grass and citronella, but
no DEET – the N,N-Diethyl-metatoluamide you find in many repellents
that can cause skin irritation.
It was part of their Project Dengue
Awareness, supported by the Kebun
Baru CC and NEA.
Students, teachers and parents
visited over two hundred flats in
Blocks 105 and 106, Ang Mo Kio
Avenue 4, on 17 May to deliver the
samples, an NEA guidebook that
explains how dengue is transmitted,
the symptoms to look out for ... and
the importance of using an insect
repellent when dengue breaks out in
your neighbourhood.
The project benefitted the students
as much as the residents. In doing
their part to keep the neighbourhood
dengue-free, students learnt the
meaning of “active citizenry” and
“strength in unity”.

More care needed in
this dengue outbreak!
D
engue itself, while an extremely
painful flu-like sickness, is
seldom fatal. But it can develop into
severe dengue which is often fatal.
There is no specific treatment
and no vaccine for dengue or severe
dengue. Developing them has proven
extremely difficult because, while
infection by a dengue virus gives you
immunity for life, it is only immunity
against that particular virus.
And there are four. DEN-1, DEN-2,
DEN-3 and DEN-4.
For example, if you have been
infected and developed an immunity
for DEN-2 – as many Singaporeans
have – you can still be infected by
DEN-1.
The big problem is that if you are
infected a second time, by a different
virus, you are more likely to develop
severe dengue.
Severe dengue
Severe dengue used to be called
Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever. It was
first recognized in the 1950s during
dengue epidemics in the Philippines
and Thailand. It is a potentially deadly
complication due to plasma leaking, fluid accumulation, respiratory
distress, severe bleeding, or organ
impairment.
Today, severe dengue has
become a leading cause
of hospitalization and
death among children in
most Asian and Latin
American countries.
