Entry #9 Guess where am I (Hint: Park)

#9 – Singa, I thought you retired!

I thought Singa has retired since I saw the news. I guessed either it is rumor, marketing gimmick or forgotten to remove. In case you don’t know what Singa is. Here is the description from wikipedia.

Singa The Lion (also referred to as Singa the Courtesy Lion) was a mascot used for various public education campaigns in Singapore. It was created to educate the public on courtesy, graciousness and eventually kindness. A public education campaign featuring Singa the Lion was launched in 1982 under the National Courtesy Campaign with the slogan, ”Courtesy is part of our tradition, it’s so nice to be courteous.”

On 15 May 2013, Singa wrote a letter of resignation stating that he is “too tired to continue facing an increasingly angry and disagreeable society”.

Singa is sitting alone at the pathway from Dhoby Ghaut MRT Exit B to Park Mall. A bit irony to see vandalism on the sculpture which is to teach graciousness and kindness.
