Chinese Bingtang Hulu
While waiting for a cab outside Yue Hwa emporium in Chinatown Singapore, I saw a little cute clay figurine of a Chinese boy in the window display and I just had to get it.
He was enjoying a moment with his bingtang hulu. These are candied hawthorn fruits on a skewer and are popular Chinese snacks in China
The little Chinese kid was also wearing a little cape which showed the face of a lion. Based on tradition, this was important for warding off evil spirits which can make a child sickly.
