Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Admiral Cheng Ho Cultural Museum (Malacca) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Admiral Cheng Ho Museum
looking down at us
an artificial giraffe

Admiral Cheng Ho brought back to China the giraffe from Africa.
Even this story is exhibited in the Cheng Ho Museum. I was surprised as to what giraffe has to do with Cheng Ho. Only after I read the brochure did I realise the extent of his travel and the tributes he got from the countries he visited.
