It's a brand new merlion.

What's this? This is a Singapore icon. It's called the Merlion. It consits of the lion head and fish body. Do you know it is built in 1972? Which means it is actually older than me!

You can wikipedia it to read more :-)



This merlion looks brand new because it underwent a manicure and pedicure for 5 weeks last year :-) haha...

All of you guessed the right thing in yesterday's comments. All so so clever! hehe..

Not so lonely now it has been moved from its old site by the harbour entrance -- see my 2001 picture -- http://www.geraldengland.co.uk/nz/nzp004.htm

Love this weird animal! So original... can you image to find someone like this? It would be more like a fish than a lion I think... Nice contrast with modern buildings far away :)

It doesn't matter how often I see this one, it IS the symbol/landmark of Singapore, and as far as symbols/landmarks go, it's a good looking one, I say.
