The Healthy Institution, Singapore. 1959, Sixth anniversary publication, 60 pages, pictorial wraps, text in Chinese with occasional English captions, black and white photos.

Niu Kong was a fad in the Chinese overseas community at the time, comprising a combination of traditional Chinese health and exercise practices.

Each testimonial is accompanied by a photo of its author. Includes the words and music for the "Niu Kong body-strengthening song."
