    I would like to know the fate of the two lion statues which were at Margaret Drive and the Buddha statue too.

    I've looked at the photos and the lions are very small at the Balestier food market. The lion statues at Margaret Drive were about 2 metres tall.

    Cheers.

    Sbs99,

    I concur, that is the replica of the Merdeka lion, the original is still at OCS.
