The Majestic

This is the former Majestic Theatre in Chinatown. I think the picture was taken just a few years ago. The picture is from this site - This site has many beautiful photos of sights and happenings in Singapore.

Last Saturday I saw this signboard and went in thinking there would be new shops after the renovation. I was wrong. All three levels have become the premises of Singapore Turf Club. It is now one of its betting centres/outlets.

What a shame. It was originally built for CO performances!

Anyway, it is not surprising. Betting outlets are found everywhere. Singapore will soon be known as a nation of gamblers.
