156TH CARD ~ SINGAPORE
Sent by Stanic from Singapore
Traveled 14,763 km
"The Merlion symbol of Singapore, guarding the waterfront"
What an interesting card! I think this statue is super cool. I need to do some research to see if it is as big as it looks! According to what I have read so far there are many Merlion statues in Singapore .
The fish body comes from Singapores ancient name back when it was a fishing village "Temasek" "sea town". The lion head represents Singapore's original name "Singapura" meaning "lion city".
