On the left of the Cavenagh Bridge, along the fringe of the Singapore River, there are 5 bronze naked boys frolicking, driving off the bridge for a swim.
This First Generation sculpture halted the movement of olden days kids playing along the river while the river is still polluted by mud and garbage.  It is a common sight during those days where children swing on trees and take plunge into the river, an uncommon sight these days.

Sculptor, Chong Fah Cheong designed this lovely piece depicting scenes of early days Singapore.  You can see the scene played out all over Asia, though the young laughter of the boys were heard no more.

On the right corner of the bridge, a family of Singapura Cat rest themselves there.  Kitty mama watches over her 2 lovely kittens frisking happily by the side, though 1 of her kittens was stolen.

Kitty mama guards the heart of Singapore day and night, never missed a single movement along the busy riverside.

    • Hey, thanks for your kind words, I like your Blog too, especially the latest post “Silent Night, A Soldier’s Night”, but I can’t find any reblog button, is there any way to do it? cheers!

      • I did not see the reblog on your site either. I was told you have to go to “the reader’ on the left side and if you like the blog it will show. If you get better information Please past it on. Thanks

      • Strangely, I can see mine but I can’t see yours. You can see yours but you couldn’t see mine! I thinks is something wrong with the setting, let me figure out! Anyway thanks! have a great week ahead!
