    We rasied money because we wanted to help the Cyclone Nargis survivors.

    what I meant was.... we managed to raise money to help the survivors by making use of the Merlion.

    Ya. Without this mascot and backdrop, i doubt no tourists will bother going there to take photos. Shops around won't make a brisk business selling souvenirs and drinks. In fact many things won't happen around that spot without our mascot.

    Yeah, we did use that lion quite a bit and the merlioning image stuck for quite awhile. I'm sure John would fondly recall that image!

    Singapore has plenty of lightnings and it is not surprising that this happened.

    Anyway, they probably should install more effective lightning arrestors on nearby buildings moving forward.

    its a small incident. as for the omen, well, we dont need this as a sign. the bad stuff are already happening and large banks had already saw it coming before selling their shares at a steal

    Singapore style. Wait till something bad happens then put in precautions.

    I don't see what's the big deal since SG is one of the most lightning prone cities in the world.

    Merlion is a manufactured mascot.

    What's the big deal of an observation tower being struck by lighning, when HDBs, office towers are struck by lightning all the time? All because it's the merlion?

    breaking away the pieces of recession, just because we are the lucky one whose mascot got struck by the ONE up there.

    And I suppose the Parisians have it worse since Eiffel Tower is the tallest thing as far as the eye can see there.
