To be an abode for the future generation also need the thought of sustainability. The architecture is crafted to react to nature, such that the rays from the sun shines as light but not the heat, and air circulation come with views that are maximized. Plush greenery positions the route from entrance to doorstep for a greeting boulevard that leads to home. Beyond just any other structure that just integrates into the landscaping, this development brings out the continual regeneration of the town as a modern and the future cut in its metropolitan tapestry.

Here is where a new lifestyle will be found. It is not just the verdant foliage boulevard or the high-tech kitchen and bathroom furnishings in the house. It is the means to have the ready to cook materials at the doorstep within an hour or a complete buffet of gastronomic food, if that is what is needed.

Singapore is not big. It is also a highly dense city which makes proximity to amenities all the more important. Time is a too valuable commodity which cannot be wasted as such like just getting groceries by travelling for an hour.

Also location to major areas both for play and work is also a key — not only will short traveling time preserve rationality; there is also many things more worth than the time that is trapped in transit. Toa Payoh has all the right attributes. Other than being minutes’ drive away from the downtown financial district, just 4 MRT stations away from the Orchard shopping belt and situated near numerous educational institutions and recreational parks, the town is also has a comprehensive public transportation network that links residents to the various parks of the island with ease.

Still, there is little motive to go out of town with the numerous of facilities and amenities. With just walking steps away from the bus interchange will be a public library, a swimming complex, a gymnasium, a stadium with 3900 capacity as well as a vivacious blend of both traditional and modern stores.

The size of Toa Payoh is also gratefully not comparative to the substantial number of infamous cafe and hawker joints scattered among the lorongs, allowing the possibility to walk to delicious gastronomies. Despite of it, whereas the “heartware” is the thing that distinguishes a town, it has to be collaborated with the correct “hardware” such as facilities, transportation as well as a well thought out infrastructure just to sound out a few. One can barely ignore the critical role of the smart technology and the appreciation that while the projection for upcoming mobility is verdant, the view is not — the significance of sustainable transport is for sure not to be overlooked, especially for metropolises.

A green mobility may not appear as feasible right now with the huge need for speed and convenience, but with the initiatives like the construction of the 36 km long Central Urban Loop, which will extend the Park Connectors of this island to a network about a distance totaling to 300 km long. Meanwhile, have a thought about this: living with charging pods for electric car, car-share initiatives as well concierge services can be swift advancement steps in protecting the future without a major change in lifestyle.

Getting together for a luncheon has been a culture since olden days to nurture relationships, share stories, forge new friendships and revel every day and also the special occasions.The local tradition food obsession is not completely unfounded all in all. It has turned into such a large part of Singapore’s culture that if this country was to be summarize into three words, it is likely to be Singlish, efficiency and food.
