Roadside deities

Spotted under some trees alongside a Caltex petrol station, next to the Mount Pleasant Flyover of the Pan-Island Expressway, near where Mount Pleasant Road joins Whitley Road:

I see a couple of Laughing Buddhas (actually a depiction of Maitreya, the “Future Buddha”), Guan Yin, Datuk Gong, and Fu Lu Shou - popular Taoist and Buddhist deities seated side by side. The best of Chinese lay religion on display by the roadside.
