Sang Merlion

A grandmother is taking care of three boys playing at the playground. The boys will usually play with their nerf gun game. While they were playing, one of the boys fell down and didn’t want to continue. The grandmother then tells a legendary tale of how Singapura was originally found. Sang Nila Utama was the original founder of Singapore. In the story, Sang Nila Utama came upon an island and decides to venture in. While he was venturing into the island of Temasek/Singapore, he was stopped by the villages who told him he has to win various games to venture deeper. The games were marbles and congkak. He won both games and they were amazed by him. Suddenly a lion appears and roared loudly at them. Sang Nila Utama then named the island Singapura. “Singa” means “lion” and “Pura” means “town”. The storytelling ended and they returned home.
