It tarnishes the image of this hot tourist spot, says STOMPer William, who was not happy to see and smell a garbage boat parked just next to the Merlion Park. Says this STOMPer: “I was strolling along Merlion Park with my wife and kids when I noticed something very unsightly. A boat that is collecting garbage was parked at Merlion Park using ropes tied to the railings with no boat man at sight. “In the first place, I am not sure is this the proper place where the boat show be tied.
“Making matters worse, the boat was knocking and causing damage to the railings. “Adding on to that, a foul smell was floating in the air. “I hope that STB will do something about it as that area is a popular tourist spot. It will surely tarnish our image as a gracious society.”
