will you pay S$50 to own a piece of history?

the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) will be held from 14 - 26 August 2010. i admit i have not been closely following news on the YOG but i am very happy and proud that Singapore - despite our tiny size - gets to host this first ever YOG in history, and even though the excitement and festivities have not quite drummed up yet, i'm sure that will get more intense as August draws near... especially when the symbolic olympic flame passes from Greece through the 5 cities and finally arrives in Singapore :)

131 more days to go...

how will you show your support for the YOG?

have you met our YOG mascots - Merly and Lyo?

there are many YOG souvenirs and merchandise up for sale by now, but this is one i really really like - DBS Visa prepaid cards printed with the YOG 2010 mascots - Merly and Lyo (S$50 per set / S$28 each - initial card value S$5 only). these pretty cards can be used as a Visa (prepaid) debit card or ez-link card too!

a very nice keepsake or gift for someone special or even as a corporate gift - elegant, practical and memoriable too.. think of how you will be owning a piece of history in some way :)

"Share your pride for the nation with Lyo and Merly as they grace the world's first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. Proudly featured on our Mascots Edition Prepaid Card, Lyo - the lion cub with a mane as fiery as his passion for sports - stands for Singapore, the Lion City.

While Lyo's best friend Merly - a mythical sea creature inspired by Singapore's beginnings as a fishing village, is featured on another.

Get more than just these adorable mascots on your Cards when your purchase our Gift Pack.

Enjoy the convenience of cashless spending, special privileges and payment acceptance at all Visa Merchants worldwide, and ez-link functionality. Simply top up and you're good to go."
