DUTY FREE SHOPPING

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Don't know but one thing I know, due to strong SGDLR, you can save quite a bit of $$$ buying things outside SIN.

was in HK one week plus ago. Spore DFS prices were cheaper for the brands I was interested. HKD is pegged to USD which has strengthened quite a bit against SGD.

Nope. So is SKII still cheaper in HK?

Same price for SKII in Singapore and HK. I checked it out on my way to US.
