But what about the Casinos? Tasi Tolu Redux

As discussed in the Insider in December 2008 the Tasi Tolu moonbase looks like its moving forward. New Parliament, Hotel/Golf Course, Moonbase, its all the same.

Whose land is it?

I wonder if they have discussed the matter with the endemic species bird that can be found in savanna habitat (such as around Tasi-tolu) .......near Dili (Díli)) including the Yellow-eared Honeyeater Lichmera flavicans, the brilliant Flame-breasted Sunbird Nectarinia solaris, and Streaky-breasted Honeyeater Meliphaga reticulata.
East Timor: Singapore group to build tourist resort with golf course in Dili [ 2009-03-30 ]

Dili, East Timor, 30 March – Singapore's Ock Group plans to build a luxury tourist resort in a coastal area on the outskirts of the East Timor capital of Dili, Asian Gold Business reported citing the company’s chairman, Edward Ong.

The resort will have a hotel with 350 rooms and will be the first five-star accommodation in the country, with a business centre and a 27-hole golf complex.

The resort will be based on the model of the Sutera Harbour resort in Malaysia, which was opened by the Ock Group in 2000. The resort has two hotels with a total of 956 rooms, a marina and a 27-hole golf complex.

The resort will initially focus on attracting businesspeople and Ong expects that East Timor will attract enough tourists to build more rooms and other attractions. (macauhub)
