With numerous gelato joints opening up in Singapore in recent years, it’s safe to say that our country is going through a serious gelato fad. But, nobody’s complaining. In this hot and humid climate, we need a lot more than just chendol and teh bing to deal with the heat.

Did you know that Haw Par Villa’s name derives from the Burmese-Chinese Aw brothers’ personal names?
Boon Haw means “gentle tiger”, while Boon Par means “gentle leopard”. The Aw brothers were behind the renowned household brand Tiger Balm, and Boon Haw had created Haw Par Villa as a gift to Boon Par in 1937.
Haw Par Villa holds a piece of Singapore’s treasured past with a thousand statues and dioramas telling the tales of Chinese folklore, mythology, legends and history. It is hard to imagine that the theme park was a major local attraction during its peak in the 1970s and 1980s; particularly when Jewel Changi Airport just opened earlier this year.
Both of the attractions were created to draw in the masses. However, the stark contrast in the values of the different generations between the traditional cultural heritage site and Singapore’s latest dazzling crown jewel could not be more obvious.
