Casino visit limit on financially vulnerable to take effect on 1 June
By Sara Grosse
POSTED: 28 May 2013 10:55 AM


The casino visit limit on financially vulnerable Singapore citizens and permanent residents will come into effect from 1 June 2013. The visit limit, if imposed, will set a cap on the number of times an individual may visit casinos at the integrated resorts each month.

SINGAPORE: The casino visit limit on financially vulnerable Singapore citizens and permanent residents will come into effect from 1 June 2013.

The visit limit, if imposed, will set a cap on the number of times an individual may visit casinos at the integrated resorts each month.

Three types of visit limits will be introduced.

A Voluntary Visit Limit means individuals may apply to the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) to limit their visits.

Family members may apply to NCPG through a Family Visit Limit to limit a family member's visit.

Persons found to have poor credit records or are vulnerable to financial harm due to gambling could have a Third-Party Visit Limit imposed on them by a committee of assessors appointed by NCPG.

The committee will evaluate the individual's financial vulnerability, taking into account factors such as frequency and pattern of casino visits, credit record, work situation and information provided by him and family members.

Before the committee imposes a Third-Party Visit Limit on any person, there will be an opportunity for the individual to object to the proposed visit limit.

Swim with sharks at RWS
By Dylan Loh
POSTED: 13 Jun 2013 10:31 PM


From 15 June, the integrated resort is introducing new underwater programmes at its aquarium to let people take a dive of faith.

SINGAPORE: Swimming with sharks may not seem a great idea to many but Resorts World Sentosa is encouraging its visitors to do so!

From 15 June, the integrated resort is introducing new underwater programmes at its aquarium to let people take a dive of faith.

For S$238, you can dive into the Sea Trek Adventure -- a 20-minute journey where you walk among all types of marine life, besides sharks.

You have to wear a wetsuit and helmet and experienced divers will guide you.

And don't worry about being a fish out of water.

Rezza Khan, team manager (dive operations) at Resorts World Sentosa Marine Life Park, said: "Children as young as eight years old and adults as old as 93 years old can participate in the programme. You do not need to be a diver, you do not need to be a swimmer. As long as you can breathe and you can walk, you can participate."

A cheaper alternative will set you back S$88, where you immerse yourself in a tank and come face-to-face with sea creatures.

For experienced divers, the integrated resort has an Open Ocean Dive programme, where participants head to a 12-metre depth to marvel at sea creatures.

The cost? S$1,280.

Battlestar Galactica ride at Universal Studios Singapore closed
By Vimita Mohandas
POSTED: 09 Aug 2013 10:09 PM


According to reports, the Battlestar Galactica ride at Universal Studios Singapore has been closed since July 21. In response to queries from Channel NewsAsia, Universal Studios would only say that the ride has been closed for an attraction review.

SINGAPORE: According to reports, the Battlestar Galactica ride at Universal Studios Singapore has been closed since July 21.

In response to queries from Channel NewsAsia, Universal Studios would only say that the ride has been closed for an attraction review.

No details were given as to the reasons why nor would it say how long the review would take.

Battlestar Galactica is the world's tallest duelling roller-coaster and a star attraction at Universal Studios Singapore.

This is not the first time the ride has been unavailable.

Just a week into the theme park's opening in March 2010, a seat on the ride became "detached" during routine tests and the ride was thereafter closed for nine months.

RWS launches marine education programme for students
By Ayesha Shaikh
POSTED: 13 Aug 2013 9:07 PM


Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) has launched a marine education programme for primary school children.

SINGAPORE: Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) on Tuesday launched a marine education programme for primary school students.

The first marine education session was attended by students from Maris Stella High School at the Marine Life Park.

The event was graced by national swimmer Joseph Schooling, who joined in the learning activities.

The students also got close to the rays, fed them and learnt more about the marine environment in the process.

Schooling said: "They knew some things I didn't know. During the slide shows and stuff like that, they were classifying the seahorse -- I had no idea that they had a vertebra, so those guys definitely know a lot of things."

Biswajit Guha, the director of the Marine Life Park Education Unit, said: "A lot of students are aware about general issues concerning pollution, recycling, environmental sustainability.

"But I think what's lacking still and still needs to be raised is how they can actually contribute -- because you know about the situation but you don't really know what you can be empowered to do."

Is that really the whole story? I remember reading that the decreased visitorship to both casinos was across the board (although if I'm not wrong, gambling revenues still rose indicating higher yielding gamblers, aka high rollers), both foreigners and locals, and not specific to the latter per se.

Optical illusion museum to open at Resorts World Sentosa
By Melissa Chong
POSTED: 03 Jan 2014 21:36


An optical illusion museum from Seoul, South Korea will be opening at Resorts World Sentosa in the middle of this year.

SINGAPORE: Visitors to Resorts World Sentosa may soon be forgiven for thinking that their eyes are playing tricks on them.

An optical illusion museum from Seoul, South Korea will be opening at the integrated resort in the middle of this year.

The Trickeye Museum is an art gallery filled with 2D paintings that give the illusion of being three dimensional.

Each painting is interactive and visitors are invited to be part of the landscape and snap photos.

There will be 80 paintings in total, featuring six different themes.

Sujin Seong, director at Trickeye Museum, said: "We've been researching about the character of Singapore, which is the most cosmopolitan city in the world.

"So we take the idea and transfer it into sections in the museum -- which will be love, circus, safari, adventure, masterpiece and fairytales."

Based on this theory, they should release all wild animals especially Panda from the Zoo as well.

May be shouldn't eat fish as well because you're chasing them in the sea for their meat. Very stress, imagine someone chasing you & trying to cut you into pieces
