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.
