Part of a series inspired by a visit to Singapore a few years ago. A wonderful old theme park lay deserted, through my western eyes the place was magical, especially as my Dad had visited there forty years ago. The attractions depict scenes from Chinese mythology, folklore, legends, history, and illustrations of various aspects of Confucianism.
The fact that it was deserted made me quite sad. Legends like this, from all cultures, are things that give us our dreams and fantasies as children. Things that spark off our imaginations, from minotaurs to spacemen.
