I went to Singapore on vacation, and no matter how cheesy I found it to be, I still posed for a picture with that Merlion in the background. The Merlion is kind of like the official mascot of Singapore. It's just a mermaid with a lion for it's upper body part instead of a woman, hence the name Merlion. Everybody was taking pictures with the statue in Singapore, I even saw most of the passengers I flew with in the airplane taking their pictures there.
Have you ever gone on vacation, found an iconic tourist spot there, thought you wouldn't want to take a picture because it was so cheesy, but then eventually do it at the end?
