Meet Lyo and Merly - The Official 2010 Summer Youth Olympic Games Mascots in Singapore

The inaugural Summer Youth Olympic is coming to Singapore and like all modern Olympic Games, there is the friendly mascot to represent the big sporting event. Now, let’s meet Lyo and Merly the official mascots of the 2010 Summer Youth Olympic.

Young and full of energy, Lyo is a stylish lion cub with red wavy mane. Merly is a youthful and friendly female merlion* without the scaly fish tail. (*The merlion is a mythical creature with the head of a lion and body of a fish.) Close up, you can even see a Singapore island shape on Lyo’s paw. Both the mascots have close association with the host country as Singapore is also known as the “Lion City” and the Merlion is a popular iconic symbol. For those who want to bring Lyo and Merly home, you can always check out the designated Youth Olympic super stores at Orchard Road just in front of Takashimaya Shopping Centre or get them online.

The Summer Youth Olympic Games will be held in Singapore from 14-26 August 2010. The event will showcase some of the finest and brightest young athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 from the competing countries. As the date draws nearer, let’s look forward to a great show.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.

    LomoLocations: Tokyo, Japan

    Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
