A Farewell to Singapore

Just a quick post as I am leaving Singapore to return to Melbourne, I thought I would share two more photos with you.
No trip to Singapore is complete without a visit to the Merlion, the mythical creature who acts as a mascot for Singapore. 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" (thanks to Wikipedia for the text).
Here is a night view across to the Marina Bay Sand
I would love to return to Singapore soon in the form of a tourist, it is an amazing city full of vibrant energy. With Singapore National Day coming up on August 9 and the Formula One in September, there will certainly be plenty for visitors to see and do.
