    Haw Par Villa

    Visited Haw Par Villa with Chloe. Chloe is my 'jalan-jalan' mate in Singapore. Whenever I spend my weekend here in Singapore, for sure I will go out with her.
    Visited Haw Par Villa in 1991, hmmm, 17 years ago. I remember there was a Dragon tunnel, there are boats where you can ride to visit the hell. But, there are all not there anymore. It was another hot and sunny day. Can't really open my eyes while taking photos.
    Haw Par Villa aka Tiger Balm Gardens. It has a colorful collection of statues and lots of tableaux centered around Chinese folklore, legends, history, and Confucian ideology. Nice place!
