For info : Merlion statue closed for cleaning 15/3 to 7/4

hiya folks, just a short note to inform everyone that the Merlion statue will be closed for its annual cleaning from 15 Mar to 7 Apr. During this time, the statue will be hoarded so you won't be able to take any pics of the lovely landmark, You can read more abt it here :

(aside : well, with the haze coming back, it's not much of a sight to take photos anyway....)

Of course, THIS is quite understandable - everyone, even *the lovely landmark* needs a bath....from time to time.

253SA, thanks for the info.

I agree, actually I pity the Merlion as he is always a victim of lightning strikes.

Is the Merlion definitely a "He" ?

From my understanding - definitely a * HE*, as gender ( feminine/ masculine/ neutral) in my language has a grammatical meaning.....LOL

For example: airplane is a HE

travel is a IT

hat is a SHE

I know it sounds crazy, but.........it is as it is...LOL

The head of that creature looks more of a lion than a lioness so he is a he, what you think? But of course he is an "it" ;-)
