Thanks, Stew!

We have it on ChannelnewsAsia webpage... CNA

"restauranteurs told MediaCorp they would still continue to serve shark's fin as long as there was a demand for it.

Jumbo group's general manager Ang Kiam Meng, who is also the president of Restaurant Association of Singapore, said: "It's a question of demand and supply and people are looking forward to eating the dish this New Year".

He told MediaCorp that several customers had walked out of Singapore Seafood Republic - a combined venture among The Jumbo Group, Palm Beach, Tung Lok and Seafood International restaurants at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) - when they learnt that shark's fin was not served.

RWS is one of the resorts in the world with restaurants that do not serve shark's fin."

I think it should be RWS is one of the resorts in the world with seafood restaurants that do not serve shark's fin... Anyway, if you are passing thru S'pore & looking for the famous chilli crab, this is the place to go...

I guess those guys were not part of the casino because I know for a fact SSR does serve shark fin in private rooms. They just don't have it on the menu and will only serve it in private rooms on request. They have it in stock in the kitchen. Still, having it off the menu is a good start.

The casino will serve it to their VIPs/ high-rollers (who may like to die young, or dun have many good years more - non of my biz though?)...

We, the locals (permanent residents & citizens) will need to pay an entrance level of $100 each time we step into the casino/s but the restaurants/shopping areas Besides the casino are "freely" accessed...

How I wish the Marina Bay Sands Resort will follow RWS & take it off the menu!

Well seeing how the last of the proponents of removing shark fin, the CEO, quit a few days ago, I think we'd have to convince Sheldon Adelson to make that move. The Chinese high rollers are a significant portion of the profit in MBS. I seriously doubt they'd want to piss off their core market. There are other ways being made to push them to drop it.
