:: about "It's My Turn" :: 

This year's Total Defence (TD) campaign, themed "Total Defence: It's My Turn", seeks to convey the message that it is now our turn to play our part for TD and build on what other Singaporeans have done to keep Singapore strong and secure.
The campaign is centred on getting Singaporeans to do two things: "Appreciate" and "Participate".
 - "Appreciate": To prompt Singaporeans to appreciate how TD has been instrumental in safeguarding our way of life through understanding our history, culture and identity.
 - "Participate": To encourage Singaporeans to step forward to do something meaningful for the community, be it reaching out to those in need and/or strengthening the community that we live in. These can range from simple actions such as inviting your neighbours for a meal to larger efforts like raising funds for a worthy cause.

Did you see a group of people running around at Greenwich V on 11 February 2012, Saturday afternoon?

I belong to the Lifestyle Team! Our team consist of Andy, Klessis, Phoebe, Sandra and myself.

Greenwich V is a new mall operated by the Far East group. 
:: about the mall :: 
Nestled within the lush leafy surroundings of the established landed residential estate of Seletar Hills, the undulating site has a serene and charming quality that is rare in urban Singapore.
It combines relaxed style, natural chic and a charming village-like ambience with a buzzing and unique outdoor concept to totally transform traditional expectations of lifestyle and shopping.
Designed to be a retail and lifestyle hub with alfresco dining and casual outdoor spaces, you will discover a vibrant blend of F&B concepts, lifestyle stores, retail shops and services, including a supermarket and food court.
Greenwich V is a relaxed and quaint village-like mall offering tantalising F&B choices ranging from Paradise Inn, The Coffee Bean, Cedele, Rakuichi Japanese Restaurant, Toastbox and BBQ Chicken to grocery shopping at Cold Storage supermarket and services including Guardian Pharmacy, 7-Eleven, Video Ezy, medical clinic, children enrichment schools and a pet grooming shop.
