We really should get to know your neighbours. They can be our best friends and also a great resource for any needs. I still remember a PSA in the past in the form of a song :
Neighbours are the people
who laugh and smile at you........ ( tak ingat the rest of the verse but the chorus is below )
So be nice to your neighbours
smile at them and lend a helping hand
Kind an friendly neighbours are the best friends in the world
