Hi I am Evon and this is my FYP blog!
This is a study on a series of alternative and sustainable lifestyle choices that, we, as urban dwellers can take on a daily basis. Touching on the the politics and philosophy behind the DIY culture, the project hopes to encourage mindfulness and taking responsibility in the way we live. It aims to promote the DIY lifestyle as a way toward cultivating a climate of self-reliance and creativity, such that our city can become greener, more vibrant and awesome!

(via Bike-sharing scheme back in the saddle next year)
 

Public bike sharing is making a comeback in Singapore, more than three years after an earlier scheme was scrapped due to low ridership.
A group of investors, led by avid cyclist Francis Chu, is planning to launch a pilot programme here as early as January next year. The new project, said Mr Chu, is modelled after successful bike-sharing schemes in London and Paris.
'A successful bike-sharing scheme will not only help increase the number of cyclists here but also create safer roads for them,' he said. The 51-year-old, who is also a founder of local cycling group Lovecycling.sg, said he wants to make cycling more viable as a form of transportation for commuters here.
And he believes that by promoting cycling as a ‘last-mile connection’ between a bus terminal or train station and their workplace, more people might be inclined to use public transport instead.

This just in! Most exciting news I’ve read in a while. :)
