One-for-One Main Course at Morganfield's with the Entertainer App

We do dine out quite a bit.  On weekends usually.  With family and friends.  And with the year-end festivities coming, it meant more gatherings and more dining out.

We were introduced to the Entertainer App, which, many of our friends did not know about.  We did not know much about it too initially but realised so many of the F&B merchants that we love and / or going to try in their merchant partner listing.

The Entertainer is in fact a leading provider of buy-one-get-one-free incentives across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe and is full of offers for restaurants, beauty salons, health & fitness, leisure activities etc.

Find it on the App Store, Google Play and Samsung Apps

One of the F&B merchant offering one-for-one main courses at their Star Vista and Suntec City outlets is Morganfield's - the place for good old fashioned, prime pork ribs slowed-cooked and smoked to tender mouth-watering perfection. 

Called "Sticky Bones", their signature dishes of smoked ribs is sure to blow one away.  Both by it's size and tenderness.  A full slab ribs is definitely good for 2 persons (no kidding) and if you prefer something spicier, there is always the Spicy Asian BBQ Spare Ribs or the maybe the Smoked Peppercorn Spare Ribs.  I like the basic Hickory BBQ Sticky Bones.

I think my younger son can finish this Crayfish Mac & Cheese on his own.  Yup, it's good.  Creamy and delicious.

By becoming a member for S$85, I believe I would have easily saved half of that price paid in 1 meal just at Morganfield's.

If you think Morganfield's is only good with their ribs, the above Mac & Cheese and this Beer Battered Fish & Chips will prove you wrong.  Simple, non-pretentious, crispy fish & chips fried to a nice golden brown.

If burgers are your loves, here are 2 of the few options:  Smokehouse Bacon Cheeseburger and Chicken BLT.


Though desserts are not in the one-for-one offers for Morganfield's, do try their Chocolate Lava Cake and end a good meal with a happy tummy.

F&B merchants aside, I saw quite a few beauty and fitness merchants that I am very interested in : BBounce Studio, AsterSpring and how can I forget recreational attractions and leisure for children like Bounce Singapore and Kaboodle Kids.

If you would like to download the Entertainer App and give it a try for 2016, be sure to use the promo code SGBLOG2016 as it gives a S$10 off the retail price of the app.

Where Your Children can Learn to Handle the DSLR

Have your kids ever said, "Dad, Mum, can I take photos with your camera?"

I get that all the time.  From both boys.

It is apparently a growing up thingy.  They love to explore, they want to try.  Sometimes, they are fascinated with it.

But parents are very beware of it, as some cameras are not cheap!  Some parents pass the older version, or a cheaper version of a compact, snap-away camera for the child to explore.  My boys sometimes use my iPhone, sometimes we give them the older compact camera.  Much often than not initially, we had to try to teach them how to use, where the object of interest should be etc.  And of course, many will agree that sometimes parents are not the perfect people for this job.  :D

So, was I glad when one of the activities at Kidzania Singapore is to be a photojournalist!

Waiting patiently in line for their turn.

Brought to us by Canon, in the 20 minutes, they were taught how to handle a DSLR, where the viewfinder is and what some of those buttons are.  Basically, it is about learning proper camera techniques.

Like a professional!
In the Imaging Academy, there were different backgrounds and objects for them to try taking photographs of.  

They were then brought outdoors, around Kidzania to take some monuments.  Look at how at ease E is handling that DSLR.  And how proud he was, showing me the photos he took on screen everytime he took a shot.

Definitely a good place for the children to learn about handling the camera.  What's more, they were paid (KidZos) and given a certificate each!
