Meeting Merlion

July 23, 2011

Finally I had a chance to meet this mythical creature.

The Merlion (MalaySinga-Laut) is a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, used as a mascot ofSingapore. Its name combines "mer" meaning the sea and "lion". The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which means "sea town" in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore's original name — Singapura — meaning "lion city" or "kota singa".
