Sungei Rengit Seafood

Sweet and sour fish, crunchy, crispy and we can even chew on the bones (rated 3.75/5). Sungei Rengit Seafood (Desaru) is 28km South from Lotus Desaru.
Sungei Rengit review

After driving out from Lotus Desaru, turn left at petrol station. 25min drive at 80kmh but do take note the road will be dark in the evening, watch out for potholes.

While navigating for dinner, we came across a popular 100 year-old biscuit shop, Lim Choo Seng (聚成中西饼店 GPS n01.35059 e104.22256). A lot of cars came up to buy Mai3 Tai3 Sou1(马蹄) and prawn crackers, we heard the Lao Poh (wife) biscuit is famous too.

The boss recommended Beautiful Village to us for dinner. From our previous visit, we had wanted to find Jade Garden but apparently this restaurant has either closed down or upgraded. (the other popular stall is You3 Ji4 at GPS e01.35116 e104.22432)

Beautiful Village – (GPS n01.35024 e104.22208).

Kang Kong is too spicy (rated 2.5/5)

铁板豆腐 Hotplate Tofu (rated 3/5)

Cereal Prawn (rated 3/5)

Wildboar a bit too tough (rated 3/5)

Total damage, RM113. Only the fried fish (first photo) is above average.

On the way back to our resort, we took the coastal road (in red) by mistake, traveling 25km in total darkness. Absolute darkness as in you-cannot-see-your-own-hands-dark, rear view was dark except for our car rear light.

In the evening, this might be the best spot for stars gazing if you dare to camp overnight. In the day, this track should be ideal for cycling. We drove between 60 and 80kmh, as we did not want to drive off a bend into the sea.

Unless you like to highbeam away :) remember to head back to Lotus Desaru on Route 92 (blue line).

POSB National School Savings Campaign is back

[ Advertorial ]

Boon Yee’s piggy bank.

Times have changed, our school going kids know what they want and they sometimes negotiate with parents about rewards for behaving well or obtaining good exam results (just like MBO or KPI)!

Children might not treasure toys or gifts which come free. Sometimes, they forget parents have to work hard to bring in the money.

POSB’s National Savings survey results indicate that Singaporean still believe savings is still important and virtuous.

We sometimes remind kids to buy less sweets and ice cream (and pencils from bookshop), and that their savings will grow faster. Every savings start from a coin, a dollar note.

We encourage our own kids to save for their wishlist (be it toys, balls or books). If they really want something, they must save for it. As a form of motivation, we sometimes match their savings dollar for dollar.

Besides sharing positive values of savings, we also hope to impress on kids the importance of thrift.
Teaching kids to save money

I am happy to find out that POSB will be bringing the National School Savings Campaign back at a national level. Remember this squirrel? POSB’s mascot Smiley is trying to encourage more school-going kids to save.

To quote from POSB :
POSB National School Savings Campaign will be a 10-month long initiative by POSB, supported by MOE. Together with Smiley the Squirrel, parents can pledge their support for this campaign here.

A main element of the campaign is the savings stamp card as a tool to save. Each primary school student can get their POSB National School Savings stamp card from any POSB/DBS branch, SingPost outlet and at Pacific or Popular bookstores in schools from 02 February 2015 onwards. Stamps will be sold at Pacific or Popular school bookstores and at SingPost outlets.

The student will then deposit the stamp card into any POSB/DBS Quick Cheque Deposit location upon completion (20 x $0.50 stamps). The bank will then credit the full value of the stamp card ($10) and a $1 bonus (the bonus interest is limited to one stamp card per child, per month and only valid for POSBkids account holders).

Digress a bit, our POSB runs over the year. The next time our children see Smiley, they will remember POSB’s National Savings Campaign.

Get on board this campaign today!
