I always find Chinese architecture (if in decent maintenance), especially its the features and colours, very hard to pass up as photo opportunities.

 

From this view not much can be seen of the surroundings of the Haw Par Villa. I imagine that when it was first constructed, the Buddha would have been looking out to the sea. The sea is still there today and this part of the island has limited high rises to block any views.

 

However, the port of Singapore has grown tremendously in traffic, so a second port sprang up in front of this villa. Now Buddha can keep a gracious eye on the cranes of the port going about their activities, loading and unloading ships.

Much to like about this fine image, Ayush.

I also like the blue hair on the Buddha icon, and you very well written anecdote.
