Active Agers

15 Dec 2011 – And HDB Hub…

Wed: three students of Year 4 Communication Studies from Nanyang Technological University/NTU, working on the topic of Active Ageing for their Final Year Project were at the flat to have a chat! The final product will be a multi-part Chinese news feature published on their independent news website.

With SIN ageing population, there is a need to explore how seniors can be effectively engaged to remain active contributors to our society, and to promote the notion that seniors can and ought to live in a meaningful and purposeful manner. Through our Chinese news feature, we hope to address ageing issues and debunk stereotypes of the aged by profiling active seniors who will inspire fellow seniors and younger Singaporeans too.

Let’s hope that what has been communicated here for nearly 6hrs yesterday will be of help, especially for the younger generation to learn enjoying & living life to the fullest. Good luck and appreciations to the 3 charming young ladies, SieYen, KiaHui & ShiYan for their patience with this senior citizen! LOL 🙂

Tkx to nephew Clem for dinner. The new Bedok Bus Interchange is undergoing constructions but the varieties of the food stalls are still worth a visit in spite of the mess! The three above pix are uploaded from various sites.

Today: met with Pat@HDB Hub in Toa Payoh to make some enquiries. Nice lobby with JuMing’s ‘Tai Chin Boxing’ and a mural ‘HDB Storeys’ contributed by 4,800 staff. Two new interesting projects SkyVille@Dawson & Tiong Babru View might be worth to look at.

Living & enjoying a full life for me being with family & friends, tasting all kinds of food & beverages, exploring and discovering what is new either by visiting or surfing online, hiking, swimming, movies, music, reading, etc is what active aging is about! Of course at this stage, will be at a slightly! slower pace 🙂 🙂
