Harry's Island

"Harry's Island is not a blueprint for a project that we intend to build
anywhere else in the world. There will only be one Harry's Island, and it
will belong only to Singapore." - Mark Advent, chairman of Eighth Wonder.

Is 8th Wonder trying to suck up to you-know-who?

Mickell,

Agree with you about them sucking up to anyone they deem influential. I don't respect such move!

To Xorpheus: Precisely what i was talking about :)

To Joepsc: I guess when it comes fighting tough international competition to win a multi-billion dollar project, some businessmen would do anything, including dumping respect out the window.

To Fantasyflier: The 1st PM of Singapore :)

xI respect the name of Harry Island. Since Lee Kuan Yew created Singapore and accoomplished tremedous missions to bring up Singapore of past and today, he deserves his "Harry" name on the IR Sentosa.

To Serendipity: Ha, ha, ha...! :D There has been jokes about how Singapore still hasn't sunk yet even though so many countless tons upon tons of earth has been dug out from underground to build the MRT tracks, expressways, etc. And all the digging is still ongoing with "everlasting" fervor.

To Righteous: It would be an irony if the 8th Wonder does eventually win the bid and get to call it Harry's Island because LKY said it was not him who decided to have the IRs with casinos in Singapore but his son and the current government who made the ultimate decision.

To Robin: Singapore is indeed too small. Only way to get attention is to create all these buzz full of hot air. As usual, more hot air than actual substance is the rule of the day.

To See Fei: But it would be an irony to have it named after the man who claimed it was not him who decided to finally allow casinos to run in Singapore.

To Dukester: I never knew anyone nicknamed as 9th Wonder.

There r many wonders abt it 9th wonder. It wld take many hrs to explain. Best is the "wonder"ful creativity to create new "titles" for this wonder.

To Dukester: Wonderful creativity is needed to create new titles for this wonder indeed.

To Mark: I would love to be able to work as a car-critic. Being able to drive at 340km/h legally as a police officer is extremely cool! :D I wish i have the credentials to get a job with them though.

cocky indeed!

Why do we need a Harry's Island?

Harry Island on Sentosa Island?

I like this design. Hope Sentosa will transform into a futuristic island of wonders.

To Spellbound: Not so much on being cocky. More so being an outright oxymoron. 8th Wonder calls its other resorts around the world Harry's Island too.

To Lao Xing Zhou: If it's being futuristic you want, then Kerzner is the one that's the most futuristic. Lots of robots inside it.
