KNN!!! Haven't Enter Casino, Lose $100 Liao?!...

Thanks to Ahmad In Taiwan who had referred us to a posting by Tigerprawn2 in the *Ahem* infamous Sammyboy's Dephi forum(The decent forum lah!).

Yes, I too share similar sentiments. The $100 per day/$2000 per annum does not sit too well with me. We understand that it is to curb possible problems related to gambling addictions, mainly to discourage people who cannot afford to dish out this dough, from betting their family heirloon away. However, we must note that similar problems will exist with or without such "curfews" even as we speak right now. And I do not even need to fork out $2 to step into a Singaporepools booth.

Probably its about time that the government opens up its eyes wide open and see the "real world" as it is(Aien't our scholarly elite leaders from the Ivy Leagues?), and try not to pretend that Singapore's image is that of Alice's Wonnderland where everything is ideal(Want the money and yet not quite willing to face up to its repercussion). Anyway, from what I had seen, money had been set aside to deal with the social problems that may come with this Casino deal. Couldn't this $100 entrance fee be a redundant step towards the same goal?

Given the intentions behind this move, I do not feel that this entrance fee issue will be overturned(not anytime soon anyway). Still, I fucking hope that all the foreigners( Yellow, White, Red, Black, Brown, whatever) will come here, bring in the chucky piece of tourism pie and LOSE ALL OF THEIR FORTUNE(Both liquidated and unliquidated assets). At least, it may come back to us indirectly in the form of ERS or tax rebate whatsoever. Hur hur hur...

This is to screen off undesirable characters.... isn't it good? You can be assured that there would be illegal booths lurking behind the casinos! haha
