It's been a while since I last posted.

The Sentosa Merlion was a prominent landmark and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore, situated on Sentosa Island. It was a towering 37-meter-tall statue that depicted a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, which was the symbol of Singapore. Visitors could climb to the top of the statue and take in the breathtaking views of the island and the surrounding sea. However, in 2019, it was announced that the Sentosa Merlion would be demolished to make way for new developments on the island. The demolition was completed in early 2020, and the iconic statue is no longer a part of Sentosa's landscape. Though it's no longer standing, the Sentosa Merlion will remain an important part of Singapore's cultural heritage and history, and will be remembered fondly by locals and tourists alike.
