June 8th, 2014   •   no comments   

The June school holidays are here! What should frazzled fathers and manic mothers do?

Johor Bahru (JB) can be fun for families who watch their budgets. With our rising Singapore dollar and the high costs of air travel (taxes and fuel surcharges particularly), there are more reasons than ever to consider a Malaysian holiday.

Enjoy Year Long Offers With The Entertainer App

April 2nd, 2014   •   2 comments   

Recently, my family (two adults and one 10 year old) “broke” our record when we paid $91 for breakfast of egg benedicts, pancakes, and fine coffee at a popular cafe. While we were mentally (and financially) prepared for that enjoyable meal, it seemed quite clear that dining out and entertaining can be costly. Especially when we are only free on peak periods – Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays.

Since time immemorial, we’re told that our network of friends and family members are vital to our success. Who haven’t heard that “a friend in need is a friend indeed” or that “blood runs thicker than water”?
