Haw Par Villa

Posted on

Haw Par Villa, formerly known as the Tiger Balm Gardens, was originally constructed in 1937.

Aw Boon Haw created the park which depicts Chinese mythology, heroes, folklore, legends and history to teach and preserve Chinese values.

Do you know why Haw Par Villa was named as such even though there was no Villa anywhere in the park?

Actually, there was.

Initially, Aw Boon Haw bought the site to build a grand Villa for his brother, Aw Boon Par. However, distraught by the loss of his brother after the war, Aw Boon Haw had the Villa demolished but continued to improve and expand the grounds until his death in 1954.

Haw Par Villa was later sold to STB (Singapore Tourism Board) in 1979.

I talk to him when I’m lonesome like;
And I’m sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
And gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
But I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
But never a friend like that.

What Is Wrong With The Education System?

Posted on

I chanced upon a blog today, which belonged to thirteen year old Thomas. 

When I first read it, I couldn’t believe that a thirteen year old boy actually did those things mentioned.

In his September 16 entry, Thomas was giving “sparring” lessons to his classmate after school. Apparently, he was coaching and preparing Shawn for the showdown with someone from class 1A3.

This is real easy peasy. Just follow the instructions behind the Laksa Paste.

A Lost Dog, A PRC Guy And A Pack Of Lies

Posted on

For the past week, I was appalled to learn about this PRC guy who goes round adopting rescued dogs for a minimal fee, and then reselling them for a profit.

Read the first story about the Great Dane here and the second story about the MBT (Miniature Bull Terrier) here for some background information.

According to the PRC guy, his Mum’s friend (another PRC guy) brought Xena, the MBT to his factory in Tuas where she was tied to a lamp post and left in the rain overnight. By the next morning, Xena ran away.

Did Xena really run away like he said? Did he come up with this story because she has already been resold and he could not get her back? Or worst, did she ended up in the claypot?

Whether it’s the truth or not, the utmost task at hand is to continue the search for Xena.

Help Xena come home!

S$1500 reward for her safe return!
