The symbol of Singapore is the Merlion (half mermaid, half lion), which is displayed on everything from national banners to cookie boxes. As we were walking down Orchard Road one weekend, we noticed a statue celebrating the creation of the Merlion. (No, the man is not real.)
Then we walked a bit further and realized that it was the Merlion's 40th birthday!
We're not the only ones getting older these days.
