Dragon Playground

Abdul Raziq Bin Abdul Rahman (11, Rainbow Centre Yishun Park School)

When learning about icons of Singapore, Abdul Raziq realised how “dragon playgrounds” are quintessential to the Singapore story in the 1970s. He was so impressed, he even planted a Singapore flag on the top of his dragon, not unlike a flag of pride atop Everest! The most famous of these dragon playgrounds is in Toa Payoh; it has been spared the bulldozer and preserved for Abdul Raziq’s generation.
