An Afternoon at Haw Par Villa 

22 Feb

Out in the western part of Singapore is a place called Haw Par Villa. They call it a theme park but it’s more like… a bunch of bizarre statues. Here’s what Wikipedia says about it:

“The park contains over 1,000 statues and 150 giant dioramas depicting scenes from Chinese mythology, folklore, legends, history, and illustrations of various aspects of Confucianism.”

It was built by a couple of Burmese businessmen who had made a fortune by developing Tiger Balm,  and who wanted to do something with their fortune in their adopted home of Singapore. Since Mommy and Phwa Phwa are of course Burmese — and Nyan is half Burmese — it seemed a great place for a visit. So with a few other local Burmese women, off they went one Sunday afternoon. 

There were plenty of group photos:

But mostly it was Nyan running around, being wowed by the exhibits, and being goofy with some of them. 

There was also a sort of wrestling ring, which Nyan put to good use.

A bizarre but cool place!
