MERLION!…

That is, MERmaid-LION: it’s Sigapore’s symbol, an odd syren with a lion’s head (Singa in fact means Lion, an animal that apparently was quite common in the area in the old days).

Singapore: a heart-stroke to arrive here, crossing one of the busiest sea-lanes of the world and then one of the largestr commercial ports in the planet, to arrive to a marina with dirty water and a bad swell due to the traffic of service boats.

The town instead, is nice: modern, of course (the settlement dates back only to 1819) but airy and with many spectacular views, and full of literally HUNDREDS of shopping-malls, where one can find everything at competitive prices (after a lot of bargaining!!…).

After a week of intense shopping, we left with a good memory (and a lot of new gadgets on board!!) bound for Port Dickson, our first stop in Malaysia.
