On this I totally agree with you.....,common 'man........Genting 40
yrs survival is largely due to their environment (ie. the changes of
environment .ie. cool climate)....and the support of the malaysian
chinese gambler coming from all all the malaysian states....right up
to the east malaysian side.......can say that their population of 17
million malaysian are able to support the survival of Genting
comparing to 4 million sgian will be supporting this not 1 but 2
Presently, Genting not only depend on casino taking for
survival......they got 4000 plus rooms and that is another source of
income foe Genting.....almost every weekend packed with
tourist..beside the usual asian tourist (ie. thai, Indon,sgian and
china)....nowadays, they got Indian and middle eastern patronising

Eventhough Genting got a very large pool of tourist patronising them
when you gamble during one of the weekday's nite @ 3am........out of
10 tables they (Genting) closed 8 tables.....reason is.......no
players around to justify all tables to be opened.

Sg........a tiny island with 4 million ppl and a new kid on the block
in this casino biz........and with 2 casinos opening soon......you
think sgian got alot of money to gamble there meh?.....halo....to
gamble at casino hor.........you must bring 'cash' lor........you
think can gamble on credit meh?

As one can see that........nowadays, due to the slow economy....every
average and below average sgian.......all waiting for the govt to
handle out money lar............if not all, sooner or later got to
hang around the void deck.....even avoid sitting at coffeeshop
lar.........cos, sitting at coffeeshop got to pay for the cup of
coffee lar.

In this situation, you think those ah peks and ah sohs got money to
gamble at casino ah?

Don't believe....just go around at nite with loudspeaker at Toa Payoh
and shout.......'.halo who want to gamble'................hardly ppl
respond lar........well, most chinese want to gamble......but where

Time changed. The seas of events had changed our lives. Our wants and
needs have changed. The excitement of having some fun of gong to the
casino in style is over. The thrill of ringing jackpot machines is
lost. The idea of making money from casino is lost, too. People lives
have changed. Wants and Needs are different now and are in differrent

Singapore's perrienal problem of being identified as the only country
with unstable economic problems - recession in and recession out,
makes singaporeans jitters with "fear" and foreign talents "worries"
about Singapore's instability of jobs and no income and no salaries
and no social benefit and flat being downgraded by foced sales, etc.
All these are hugh "fear making problems" in comparsion to other
nearby countries. In short casinos will not save our country.

Times have changed...but the character of people don't change..

Two behaviour trait in human have not changed for thousands
of years....lust (sex), and greed (gambling). That the reasons why
prostitution and gambling had existed from early days...Prositution
and gambling will not be with us until the end of mankind.

In good time, people gamble for the fun of it...in bad times more
people will gamble...try their luck.

The casinos will survive...but the resort hotels and spas...and
venues for high life may not survive.
