Neighbourhood Fit

This is a concept mimics what children do to find playmates right on their own street.
In our case, we ask everyone in a neighbourhood to select one or two (or more) activities that they would like to do.
People with similar interest come together to participate and motivate one another.

In a quiet crematorium, an old lady place flowers on a grave. After burying the last person who cared about her a decade ago, she is always living in fear that one day, she will dies alone without anyone noticing for some time. Her body may ends up in the mortuary uncollected or used for medical research. The warmth of the bright sunlight cannot drive away the chill in her heart as she drag her feet away from her good friend's grave...The same worries and fears reside in the heart of many elderly without kins.
