Tiger in the making


Just went by today December 31 and they had added this huge Tiger face over the entrance to what they are going to call Tigerland, and it looked like they were having a private New Years party , we couldn't go in . Malcolm









One thing for sure , when you are driving around the country side here in the LOS, you never know what you are going to see. This was the case just the other day on the way home from Kanchanaburi, I looked off to the left and down a road that I had not noticed before and saw that something big was being built out of concrete , sooo I had to turn around and take a look . To my surprise there in the woods was being made out of concrete the biggest Tiger I had ever seen , only a few workers were around sooo could not get any information , but from what I can guess ,it looks like a hotel being built and the huge Tiger will be some kind of attraction , I plan on stopping by again soon for more pictures and hopefully ,be able to see someone who can tell me whats going on here . This tiger is huge and I'm sure when it is finished and painted , it will be a must see for lots of tourist. Have you ever seen a tiger this big , I've nicknamed him "Tony "after one of my favorite tigers. Malcolm

Malcolm I can't resist saying Tony the Tiger looks gggreat.

The tiger is magnificent and with a lick of paint will make a big big tourist attraction. More news please.

I wonder Malcolm, whether tigers are native to your piece of paradise? Otherwise, it's quite the attention getter, all right!

It will be interesting to see what colours they use for the reclining cat. Kind of hope it's emerald green. It would be just too obvious to stripe it.

Malcolm, great photos and a very cool thing to have in your backyard so to speak.

Maybe while you are renovating you can have the contractor add something like this to your yard :)
