Mendaki launches commemorative postcard book

SINGAPORE- Self-help group Yayasan Mendaki launched Postcard Stories, a book showcasing winning entries from a postcard design competition as well as 50 messages from Singaporeans, earlier on Monday (Feb 01).

The book features the top two designs from three different categories - primary, secondary and above 18- from a competition held between March and May last year. The contest drew more than 1,000 entries.

The book also features 50 messages gathered between August and December last year at various Mendaki events as well as booths located at various locations, including public libraries and Toa Payoh East Community Club.

The messages, which come from students as well as personalities such as Speaker for Parliament Madam Halimah Yacob and singer Taufik Batisah, include well-wishes for Singapore in commemoration of SG50 as well as a message of support for the families of the victims of last June's earthquake in Sabah .

The launch was attended by Minister for Comunications and Information Dr Yaacob Ibrahim.
