SINGAPORE – The Merlion will have to wait longer for its regular bath.
The iconic statue was supposed to have its quarterly cleaning from last Thursday (Aug 26) to Saturday, but this has been postponed to next week, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) said in a statement on Friday (Sept 3).
“The cleaning works were postponed due to manpower issues faced by the appointed cleaning company,” an STB spokesman told The Straits Times.
