My choice is NONE.

I'll simply pack my kids for an overseas trip - maybe Cambodia . :D

Me too. Sometimes it is good for the kid to go overseas and learn about different culture. They can not learn that from tution centre or books.

Go overseas for hands-on experience. Or buy her books, and save the rest in her account.

$1000 can't bring us very far...probably can pay for a 3-5 day trip nearby bah so I will probably:

1. get a 3 in one zoo pass for a year: $430
2. Sign up for Art boot camp: $340?
2. Take a cable car to Sentosa and go to the attractions like underwater world and Songe of the Sea: $200?

If it is $1000 per month then we will go travelling every quarter and experience the culture overseas, 2 weeks in Japan or Europe will be nice for a start :love:

I would send ds for personal chess coaching to learn on strategy. It's something that will make him very happy. And dd for modelling course as she loves clothing.

Or both my kids to science camp during school holidays. They will like this one too.

I will also bring my kids to an overseas trip for a different experience. The rest of the money I will let them sign up for a 3 days short course during the holidays.
