Before we head down to Haw Par Villa, the husband made a call to the office to enquire about its opening hours.
Husband: Hello, is this the Har Par Villa office?
Man on the other line (sounding really bored): Yesssss, we are opennnnn, seven days a weeeeeek....
Husband: Erm ok thanks, bye!
He must have answered it a gazillion times, hence the bored tone, haha!

Just a word of caution. As the villa is built on a small hill, be prepared to walk up slope and climbed lots of stairs. We were huffing and puffing while carrying the son up and it was a very hot day to boot too. And don't forget the mosquito patch, umbrella or sunscreen.
Har Par Villa is open daily from 9-6pm, I think. And with the Circle Line now opened, it's so much more accessible than before.
P.S: You can try calling the office to ask for the operation hours. Or just to get a kick out of hearing the man's bored voice.
