The team captains of the 2022 HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens experienced a taste of Singapore and gave a preview of their sporting prowess on Wednesday (6 April) ahead of the event this weekend, as they demonstrated their skills in popular traditional games five stones and chapteh. The players also sampled some well-loved local snacks – ondeh ondeh, curry puffs and kueh lapis – and sipped teh tarik (translated to mean pulled tea), a drink whose name is derived from the process of pouring (or “pulling”) tea with milk between two cups during its preparation. These activities took place on the sidelines of a photo shoot for the captains at the Dragon Playground at Toa Payoh. Featuring the head of a dragon decorated with terrazzo tiles and a spine of colourful steel rails, the Dragon Playground is one of the few remaining vintage playgrounds in Singapore. It remains a staple playtime feature for locals since its completion in 1979.
