Another card from Singapore...addressed to me ;-)
This card here shows the Singapore's most famous symbol - The Merlion - part fish, part lion.
You actually DONT want to know, to what this figure reminds me whenever i look at it...nope, i aint saying....its ridiculous :) well, its cos seen from the back, it does look to me like it....when seen from the front its as if its a totally different image.
Singapore comes from the Java name, Singa Pura, which actually means 'Lion City'.
There are five official Merlions in Singapore. The one on the card is located in the Merlion Park.
