This is a rickshaw on display in Tiong Bahru Shopping Mall earlier this year. We dont see these rickshaws in Singapore anymore cause they were replaced by better mode of transport. In old Singapore, rickshaw is one of the popular mode of transport. The rickshaw were imported from Shanghai, China during the 1880s.
Rickshaw had to be pulled by a man and running from place to place and the rickshaw puller must be very strong cause sometimes there were be two passengers in the back. Rickshaw was so popular that a station was built for them called Jinricksha Station. You can see a photo of the station which is no longer a rickshaw station that I posted here.
These cute mascots were part of the Chinese New Year's decoration in Parkway Shopping Mall to welcome the year of the Ox. I thought they looked like my piggy bank...lol. I like the pink ox. I used to made a paper mache piggy bank of a pink pig and I think I might make one again. :)
