Dragons losing their fire

While this may be the Dragon Year, the dragons among us have seen better days.

In the 1970s and 1980s, various dragon structures were built in the heartlands; however, in recent years, they seem to have fallen by the wayside.

The landmark three-storey-high dragon fountain in Whampoa is in a sorry state. Over at Lorong 3, Toa Payoh, a pillar with dragon motifs greets drivers entering the estate. With paint peeling off its head, the structure does not command any attention, save for a few crows that use it as a vantage point.

The town council should upkeep these unique landmark.

It won't cost a fortune
