The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

Trip to Haw Par Villa, Sunday, January 24, 2010, 10.30am

Let's take a walk down memory lane :) It's a place I go to many times growing up cos my aunt used to stay @ Pasir Panjang. To me it's a surreal place, both magical and scary. I hope you guys would take this trip with us.

Built in 1937 by the entrepreneurial and charismatic Aw Boon Haw for his brother Boon Par, Haw Par Villa is the quintessential house of Chinese folklore. Described by various visitors as "fascinating, delightful, bizarre and entertaining", Haw Par Villa is like no other place in the world.

Twenty-five clusters of original statues and figurines replicate Chinese mythology characters like the Laughing Buddha and the Fu Lu Shou (Taoist deities). A must-see exhibit is the Ten Courts of Hell, featuring the ten steps of judgement before reincarnation. Literal and leaving nothing to the imagination, the statues and sets immortalise moral values and Chinese cultural heritage for generations to come.

Meeting point: Haw Par Villa Entrance
(262 Pasir Panjang Road Singapore 118628)
Time: 10.30am
Admission: Free
Approximate Touring Time: 2 hours
We will go for lunch after that together, if you guys have any suggestions around that area, do let me know :)
