HDB Community Week 2013 aims to revive the kampong way of life among HDB residents, said National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

In his blog post, Mr Khaw noted that every Singaporean has at some point experienced HDB living and that it is to citizens “like apple pie is for the Americans”.

He added that the four main events spread out over the week saw a strong turnout of participants.

Around 700 residents participated in the Amazing Heartland Race which gives them a chance to re-discover iconic features of the various towns they live in. 

“Indeed, everyone can do their part in community bonding. Start by getting to know your neighbour, and together, discover the rest of your community – the place we call home,” said Mr Khaw.
