Singapore, May 19,1988
I saw some more things in Singapore that are worth relating.
One of those things was the zoo.
Once within its gates I was presented with a high concentration of life in many different forms. Some of the animals I looked at, and who looked back at me,
posessed natures I had never encountered before.
For instance, the Tapir. I also stopped at the Haw Paw Chinese
mythology gardens, packed with multicolor statues depicting Chinese
myths and stories–as well as those from different cultures.
The most interesting, I thought, was a vivid portrayal of the 16 layers of hell
in popular Buddhist mythology. Plenty of graphic tortures to be seen.
