And now coming back to where we left yesterday, We took the Left turn from the bridge to go to see the Merlion.  
Merlion is a mythical creature with Head of a Lion and Body of a fish and is the mascot of Singapore.The Lion Head represents the original name of Singapore ‘Singha Pura’ or the Lion city.
I think pictures tell stories better, so will take you through the route from the bridge ( as mentioned in previous blog ) to the Merlion through Pictures now.

You can notice the bridge we left ( as mentioned in earlier blog post) on to the  left of pic. We are crossing a Playing field

The walk way will go towards Esplanade theater.

See Esplanade theater in Back drop. We climbed the stairs from here to reach to a cross way( turn left) towards the Merlion. However Underneath the bridge, you can see locals enjoying a good picnic ( as it was Sunday). We even witnessed the friendly Singing competition between two groups of teenagers. One became our favorite as they sang, ‘Everything I do I do it for you’ with guitar playing rhythmically. Each group used to sing a song leave at a high note for the other group to start! it was really nice!

Now on the walk way to Merlion. Enjoy the scenery behind!

Almost reached the Merlion.

As we needed to head for home now, it was time to go to the Raffles place MRT station. It was across the road, some walking and asking the way required (Singaporeans are quite helpful). So an Expat told there that we can take the underpass opening at the Iconic ‘The Fullerton Hotel’. We did the same. And fantastic is the word for the underpass!

The Lobby for underpass

The Raffles Place MRT station
From Raffles Place MRT station we took the North South Line to Dhoby Ghaut then changed to North East Line to Harbour front. It was time just grasp what we had seen and thanking god for giving us the opportunity to go on a holiday ( in the first place) AND for giving us the serenity to enjoy little joys of Life.
Do keep reading the Blog as up coming is the visit to the Singapore ZOO, Night Safari and a Pool side dinner!
