:: do you want to bet?::

suprise, suprise....

just as it was announced by the SM Goh yesterday that the Singapore Cabinet has make a decision on the casino issue, the ministry of community development, youth and sports has announced today that in its survey, only 2% of the half of Singaporeans who gambled, risked addiction.

it is to say, like, you know ah, not all gamble can be addicted one....only 2%, so we can work it out on the social costs lah.... but you know ah...gays ah, cannot, they are more than 2% of the population, so cannot have parties for them one...wait they have orgies at public places and parks, then how? it's against family values leh...

the timing is all too close for comfort, isn't it? when it was supposed to be announced officially on 18th april. see, i even had a clockticker in my blog to count-down the actual day itself.

WTF?

almost everybody know what is the decision going to be? so why play propaganda? like having a 'tv special program' on the casino debates, flying off diana ser to macau for the 'get real' program, getting feedbacks from the ground lah, etc etc etc.....

i have no qualms about having the casino, but please...please...don't treat it as if we are all kids.

with all the 'wayang shows' that have been going around for months, i had enough.

have a damn casino in singapore, for all i care. after all, then you can then recruit the experienced staff from genting highland to save on your re-training program.

to provide more jobs to locals? are we kidding? take a good look at the hospitality and service industry, do you see lots of locals?

what the heck! i give up....be a Sin City if we need be, just don't f**k with us with the charades.

if you want to have vice in the city, just do it, no need to gloss with the same argument with "family values advocates" or to appease to the "conservatives".

and please, spare me the act-virgin philosophies....i am peeved today, can't you tell?

agree totally. When I was back last week I kept seeing that stupid "SMS your ministar" advertisement again and again. Bloody hell, not interested in the layman's view never mind, still want to make money out of it some more...

Hee, ask my army buddies, whenever I am in camp, I am always the dealer but not the player. Practising to be a croupier lah for the up-coming casino in singapore I always tell them.
