MyQueenstown Team would like to emphasis our position as an independent platform which serves to integrate residents and friends regardless of race, religion, language and background. We aim to preserve and propagate the heritage, history and tradition of Queenstown community and instill residents with a deep sense of belonging and pride for our Community. For residents who are less inclined socially, we will put our utmost effort to improve their living environment through our programmes such as Love@MyQueenstown, MyQueenstown SMS, etc (which we will announce from time to time).


 


We are proposing to expand our outreach programmes and community services in the next few months as a full fledged civic entity. 


We understood from sources that the People's Association classify our online portal (our team is proud that it's quite successful and we thank Queenstown residents for their continuous support!) as part of their new media initiatives. Furthermore, certain ranks in the ruling party has expressed interest in "using our portal for their upcoming election campaign." We would like to reiterate that we are residents and friends of Queenstown who establish My Queenstown for our fellow residents. This website captures our stories, our heritage and our aspirations in one true voice of the community. What's different from other community websites is My Queenstown's ability to provide a depoliticised, community-centric and genuine sentiments from the residents (we always take a photograph of the resident or shopkeepers we interview).


We are neither connected to nor established by the People's Association. Furthermore, we do not possess any political inclination so that residents can continue to use our platform to "speak up" on issues freely that concern our bread and butter, our shared heritage and our common destiny for the future (Just speak up!). We are sorry that certain groups of people from the above organisations have used our portal as their "mouthpiece" and we strongly urge them not to do so and allow residents, friends and students of Queenstown possess a credible and bottom-up approach to contribute to their community so that Queenstown can become a caring, vibrant and exciting home for all of us.


Cheers,
MyQueentown Team

I wandered onto your website and really love the pictures and memories you have encapsulated here. It would be a disappointment if this site is linked to a political party or a particular ideology. Queenstown is a place that extends beyond mere politics, being one of the oldest histories in Singapore. I am deeply saddened by the rapid changes that are occurring particularly around Margaret Drive, but am glad that this site captures some of what remains - here online, for posterity.
