GET FOR ME: E-town comes to Bishan and Toa Payoh towns

     HDB residents in Toa Payoh and Bishan can pay their bills and book function halls and child-care places in the comfort of their homes. Yes. E-town is here.

     The town council running these two towns has launched a website that lets residents do the following:

     - pay their service and conservancy (S&C) bills

     - book function halls at the local community club

     - enrol their children at a nearby child-care centre

     - sell second-hand goods or order new ones from neighbourhood shops

     - keep an eye on people loitering in their carpark or void decks over closed-circuit cameras.
