I don't know why this particular manhole cover and the ones nearby, are decorated. Most aren't. They are outside the Bishan bus interchange. Love the colors. The picture is actually printed on plastic and glued onto the manhole cover. There are a few different pictures, and they aren't unique. The same picture is used on more than one cover.
Manhole covers in Singapore are square, not round. The black line in the middle is where the cover's double doors open up. The little teardrop shapes are raised bumps on the steel, so that you don't slip when walking on the cover.
