Catch Willy & Make Him Do Tricks

A bit late, but here’s what I wrote about the whole “cyber-bullying” RWS thing:

It was decided a long time ago, that we would have an Asian twist to the attractions afforded by Integrated Resorts like Resorts World Sentosa. Our Asian, twisted types need our fill of beauty pageants, sharksfin soup, performing circus animals and if we made our version of the movie “Free Willy”, it would be titled “Catch Willy & Make Him Do Tricks”.


Singapore’s last resort island

So Resorts World Sentosa opened its many doors to 75,000 people over the CNY holidays, and judging from the things I’ve heard, it hasn’t been pretty.

They’ve been charging Singaporeans and PRs $100 a day to get in, so that they’ll only get the right kind of people at the 500 tables.

And I heard from a friend whose house we visited this afternoon, that these right kinds of people have been lying, sleeping on the cheap ugly tiles on the floor outside the gambling halls, waiting to be let in.

Oh well. At least the air-conditioning works.
