Pricing on add-ons for your tents during your special event tends to be regional. You are probably going to end up spending more than you can afford. You make sure you get pricing that includes the set up, the venue, and rental fees to name a few. Tentage Rental Singapore gets the tent delivered and set up a couple days ahead of time. The company intends this so that they have time to set up and decorate. So, what are the common add-ons you need and you can skip.


  • A Tent Color Other Than White


Majority of the people wants a white tent. Other tent colors are hard to find and can cost you a lot. That is the price you must pay to be original. An alternative to white is a clear-top tent. This kind of tent does not cost more. This will look awesome all lit up for an evening large, lively party. However, Tentage Rental Singapore recommends that you can skip this if you are having your party on a spring or summer day because it is better to party in a giant greenhouse.


  • Tent Liner


The tent liner is seen a lot in bridal magazines because of its elegance. This add-on looks like a floating parachute. Bridal magazines try to make this sound as essential as a best man and a marriage license. This is too fancy that you can skip. Instead of a tent liner, Tentage Rental Singapore will suggest a pole tent that looks perfectly nice without a liner. You can use lighting effects on a normal liner to get a similar look.


  • Tent Lighting


The lighting system comes in several flavors and varies depending on which tent company you go with. Tentage Rental Company will give you one option great for evening events. The stage lighting with color gels can be mounted to the framing structure of the tent. This looks really cool. If you are providing your own lighting for the event, the company will not be responsible in putting them up for you. Another hassle is you will have to get them yourself out of there before the company comes to take the tent down. So, if you just stick everything to the company, you do not have to worry about somebody knocking it over and look for someone to hire just to do all that hassle.


  • Generators


The power for your lights, fans and other electrical equipment will have no use unless you have an appropriately sized generator. Generators are extremely useful especially if the area you are in does not have any power source or inadequate source based on the equipment you are using. They come in many sizes and can be paired as well to share the electrical load. As a guide, if you are using low powered equipment such as lights, fans, you will require smaller generator equipment with high wattage such as vacuum cleaners, cooking equipment will require a larger generator for rental.

They are well experienced in all occasions. They know that you have a tight budget to celebrate and most people do not need such luxurious add-ons.

public transport is one of the most effective and affordable means of getting around in a foreign country. Granted you are familiar with the public transport system and have a considerable amount of time to understand the system.

Whether you are taking the bus, train or taxi. Each has its benefits and disadvantages. However, in this post, I will talk about the alternatives that you can use when overseas that will take the hassle out of your travel.

A good example of public transport

Traveling abroad can be a new experience every time despite having the same medium of transport. Every country’s transport system is unique in its way and has its different quirks and perks. For example, Japan’s public transport via the use of trains, public buses are very affordable compared to driving or hailing a taxi. Their transport infrastructure is so advanced that taking a public transport is literally quicker than driving in many situations. For example, their shinkansen can travel up to 300km/h. bringing you from city to city in mere hours while driving can take more than 5 hours including all the stops you have to take.

Example of inefficient public transport

Myanmar buses

On the other hand, places such as Myanmar or Vietnam has a pretty dismal public transport system. I remember when I was there, I had to resort to taking a taxi everywhere I went because the public transport myanmar was so unreliable. Buses and trains would come as and when they wanted and the hygiene conditions on these transport mediums were atrocious.

If you are traveling abroad, one option you can take to take out the hassle of queuing for a cab, figuring out the transport route of a bus or analyzing the train route is through an airport transfer. I would like to share my wonderful experience of using an airport transfer in Singapore.

Singapore’s Transport System

airport transfer

Singapore is akin to Japan in its transport system. It has one of the most elaborate train systems in the world. You can literally find a train station within 4km where ever you are in Singapore.  However, because Singapore has such a dense population, I’ve heard of many instances of overcrowding on their trains, especially during peak hours. On my many business trips to Singapore, I’ve gotten used to taking the train wherever I went. However, because on my recent trip I had to bring a few more luggage than usual. I decided to use this airport limousine service which I found online. While it was relatively more expensive than a taxi, they offered a meet and greet service which means the driver would meet you at the arrival hall. The kind driver also offered to help me load my belongings which I gladly accepted. The ride to my lodging was extremely comfortable. It was akin to a professional driver with years of training. Every turn, acceleration, and stop were extremely smooth. The driver was also attentive to my needs and offered some suggestions to the local questions I had about Singapore. Overall, I had a good experience using such a service and will definitely not hesitate the next time around.


Singapore is known to be one of the most expensive countries in the world to live in. The things that contribute this are the cost of living. Prices of houses are known to exceed 1 million dollars and cars well over 100 thousand dollars. Contrast this to America where the houses in suburbs can cost 100 thousand and cars cost a mere 20 thousand. The government also imposes strict laws as well as government taxes and these too add to the overall cost of living.

Driving is one of the necessities for many people. It is a form of transport and livelihood for some people. However, the cost of learning how to drive in Singapore could cost you well over 1 thousand dollars. A single lesson alone from the driving schools can cost up to 100 dollars and the driving test alone will set you back about 300 dollars.

Cheap Driving Instructors in Singapore

One way you can mitigate this is by learning from private driving instructors. Cheap driving instructors in Singapore usually charge between 40 dollars per hour which is far from the cost of driving schools. In addition, Private driving instructors can offer you the flexibility of their schedule and you are assured to have the same instructor every single lesson. In contrast, the schedule from schools are fixed and you have to book way in advance before you can secure a slot. In addition, you are not always assured the same instructor so it can be really difficult to track your progress.

One way you can find private instructors is within the vicinity of the driving schools, they are usually located around the area during their break times and their cars are usually fitted with a “L” plate. This denotes that they are driving instructors and they have a learner under the wheel.

How many lessons do i need in order to pass

The amount of lessons solely depends on how long you take to grasp the concept of each step. Most learners require about 15-20 hours of lesson before they are confident to take their traffic police test. However, if you do need more lessons, please do not hesitate to take up more lessons. Reason behind this is driving test cost about 200 dollars and failing a test can be quite costly in the long run. You will have to take more lessons after failing and worse of all, your confidence in driving will surely decrease.



Driving is a core skill that everyone should have and it is important to choose where you learn how to drive. While driving schools provide a systemic approach to learning how to drive, if you prefer an accelerated route, then perhaps private driving lessons are the way to go

The world is never protected against financial meltdown and the most recent one that occurred between 2005 and 2015 has shown us that we need to create alternative sources of income as there is a growing trend across the world , of people losing jobs. Here are some of the most important reasons you should quit your job and start your own business in 2016, or perhaps stick with your job and create a second stream of income.


#1 : Modern technology is taking over paper works

Many office cubicles are becoming empty and the middle class is being wiped out because advancements in technology is taking over most paper works. The demand for more output has forced many organizations to adopt more efficient technology that can provide higher output for higher profits. This is the main reason you should quit your job and start your business this year.

#2: Money is not always happiness

Studies have shown that increase in salaries create little or no improvement in personal happiness. The reason is simple, the more you make the more you spend. You don’t have to stay in your job  just for salary increase all the time, when you can make more and even save more on your own business.

#3: You need extra source of income

Even if you don’t want to quit your job, chances are that taxes and rising costs of living are not helping you to save money. One job is just one source of income, but starting your own job will give you the financial freedom you deserve.

#4: You hardly have time for yourself, family and friends

Many people force themselves to wake up in the morning and go to their regular 9 to 5 jobs because they don’t have any alternative. Most people are just too tired to visit friends and family members after a hectic work week. If you want more time, you need to have a job you are in complete control over.

#5: You may lose your job at any time

The harsh reality of going to work every day is that you may get used and dumped sooner than you think. If you don’t have a backup business, you may lose everything you have worked for, over the years.

#6: your business provides more flexibility

When you are in charge of your own business, you decide when to wake up and when to relax. You also decide how much you want to make constantly, your regular 9-5 job does not provide such benefits.

#7: No terrible bosses who make life miserable for staffs

Bosses don’t like junior staffs, they make life miserable for them by giving them too much work to handle at a time. This can trigger stressful conditions that may cause decline in your health. If you don’t want this kind of situation for the rest of life, you better start thinking of starting your own business.

#8: Build a massive wealth rapidly with your own business

When you build your business and watch it grow over the years, you expand your network and when the quality of your products and services are good, people will hire you . This will help you build massive wealth over the years.

#9: Leave a legacy with your own business

Your regular 9 to 5 gives you a little chance to leave a strong legacy but your children and grandchildren can inherit your business and that is a great legacy you will always be remembered for.

#10: You have many business options to choose from outside of your regular job

Whether your business is online based or not, there are demands for many services and products and you need to choose the one that you are really good with.


As an entrepreneur, certain toxic behaviours will not only harm your goals and objectives, they can drive committed business partners and clients away quickly. Here are some of the most toxic behaviours you must get rid if you want to become a successful entrepreneur.

#1: Taking criticism too personal

Many entrepreneurs often believe that negative things said to them by their clients are direct assault on them. The fact is that what people say to you is mostly about them and not you, therefore you must learn to take criticisms constructively. Take feedbacks constructively and work on them, in order to retain your clients’ loyalty and trust.

#2: Not taking criticism seriously

Oftentimes, young entrepreneurs take feedbacks or criticism with levity and that may cause them to lose clients gradually which in turn means losing income. When you don’t take feedbacks serious, you will not be referred by your immediate clients for future jobs.

#3: Not keeping up with deadlines

Though, missing deadlines occasionally, especially on completion of tasks may be tolerated by clients but when it becomes habitual, your clients will eventually lose interest in doing business with you, and this may cause you to lose jobs, referrals and income. It is very important that you give your clients reasonable deadlines when you can meet up with tasks completion, instead of trying to make excuses and fooling them.

#4: Cheating and cutting corners often

Just because you want to make more profit does not mean you have to cheat your customers often. When your customers discover that the quantities and qualities of your products and services are suddenly deteriorating, they will move somewhere else to do business, this will lead to loss of income and potential future clients. Always stay truthful to your clients no matter what.

#5: Bad customer services

Not responding to enquiries and complaints can be highly toxic to your business. Some customers get angry easily and they want your response and reassurances immediately, therefore, you must be ready to answer their queries at all times to avoid long term conflicts.

#6: lack of self-control

Though, self-control should be a personal issue but many potential clients do not see it in that way. It is easier to trust and do business with an entrepreneur who does not indulge in negative social practices that one who is involved in much anti-social behaviour. For instance, your clients don’t want to see you get drunk or involved in many fights socially. If you want to attract more clients and grow your network, you must learn the act of business etiquette and improve your self-control.

#7 improper communication skills

Small issues such as ability to remain names and addresses of clients can help you build trust and confidence in them but lack of adequate communication skills may mean that you are unserious and not ready to listen to their plights. Try as much as possible to return their phone calls, emails and other contact media if you want them to take you serious.

Everyone wants to create wealth and sustain it for as long as they wish, but In order to create something out of nothing, there are some pointers you need to keep in mind.  Here are some ways to go by it;

#1: Resell something

You don’t have the capital to start a business but there are a handful of things you can re-sell , if you look around very well. Reselling products that has already been made has become one of the growing and successful business habits in the world today. Think about some channels such as Drop shipping, Thrift stores, and garage sales, as your potential avenues to sell your products. Drop shipping is a reselling avenue where someone else can help you drop the product at a very reduce rate. Garage sales, antique shops and flea markets also offer a huge avenue to resell something and grow your business from there.

#2: Trade batter to get what you need

One way of getting supplies for your startup business is by trading what you have with what you don’t have.

#3: Choose a niche you are versatile in

You need to identify a niche for yourself, if you want a business you can start from zero. Many services or business such as dog walking and baby-sitting may not require capital set up but you need to convince potential clients that you are capable of taking care of their pets or kids. You need to ensure that you understand all it takes to be successful in your chosen business, and make sure you have any necessary license or certification, if necessary.

Certain business advertising services cost around 5$ just to launch your business online. Websites such as Fiverr and Elance, for example will cost you that little just to put your products and services on the internet and start receiving customers immediately. You may also watch out for some coupon codes at special websites such as, if you want to save even more on selling items such as clothes and accessories.

#5: approach a friend or family

Assuming you still don’t have sufficient capital to start your business, you can solicit the help of a family member or friend for a small loan. Banks and some other financial lenders rarely offer individuals with no collateral, any form of business loans, and the interests payable on a bank loan can be too much for you. Chances are that you will find a family member ready to sponsor your business plan , especially if you have a strong business proposal.

Starting a business out of nothing is possible , if you follow the right channel, and you have a plan to execute alongside your main goals and objectives.


Task prioritization is a necessary habit for entrepreneurs who aspire to be achieve their goals and objectives.   Task prioritization helps us manage our time more effectively. Most entrepreneurs often become confused when prioritizing , especially when it comes to “importance” and “urgency” of tasks. One rule of task prioritization is that you must prioritize urgent tasks ahead of important tasks, and at the same time, you need to dedicate your time to urgent and important tasks on daily basis. You need to rank your tasks according to their degree or urgency and importance, then allocate time to each tasks accordingly.

Task prioritization offers the following benefits;

#1 It reduces stress and increase productivity

Knowing that you don’t have to finish all tasks at once, or in a single day will give you a more flexible time to focus on the most important things first. If you don’t prioritize, you end up trying to handle too many tasks at the same time and that may result in failure and low productivity. When you achieve your tasks steadily and slowly, you end up getting positive results .

#2: It helps you create room to check your errors

When you don’t prioritize your work, you hardly have time to check for errors and that means  you will have little or no time to edit your works. When you don’t have time to check for errors, you spend extra time later when you don’t achieve the results you hope for. Task prioritization ensures that you allocate sufficient time to complete tasks and also make necessary changes in order to save time and become more productive.

#3: It gives you more time to relax

When you complete your scheduled tasks ahead of the time allocated, you have sufficient time to relax and recharge your body for future tasks. You may even allocate breaks in-between your tasks . Completing tasks on scheduled time will definitely allow you ample opportunity to check your friends and family or even indulge in your favourite TV shows and hobbies.

#4: It helps you avoid procrastination

Procrastination is the number one hindrance to productivity. It is an habit that forces you to re-schedule tasks until the final hour when it becomes very difficult to complete such tasks. If you want to become a successful entrepreneur, procrastination is one habit you need to deal with, because it forces you to waste your time and become lazy. Task prioritization helps you allocate task completion deadlines for yourself.

#5: It keeps you motivated

When you prioritize your tasks and see positive results, you will become motivated to handle even more tasks because the positive feedback you receive will motivate you. Staffs who have learnt to prioritize their tasks often end up getting promoted than those who are in the habit of procrastination. As an entrepreneur, it is quite easy to give up on your dreams and aspirations when you are not getting results,  but when you achieve little successes, you become motivated to achieve even more.

Understanding Potential Customers and Clients

It is virtually impossible to create an effective communication with the audience without understanding their expectation, concern, interest, and needs.  This can be considered a golden rule in business.  The initial step that you have to take as a business owner is to understand what your audience values and the objection and concerns that they have.  After understanding them, you need to know how to approach them by conveying the essential messages. Your marketing needs to be concentrated on addressing and meeting their concerns and needs.

Being Prepared

Those who proceed in the stage of communication abruptly, without any concrete foundation will understand how important a comprehensive preparation is.  Your level of preparation will depend upon the importance of the communication and the particular situation.  There will be instances that will require you to be more prepared compared to others. Some communication that requires an intensive preparation includes business presentation, marketing, requesting for the increase of payment, answering the complaint of the client and analyzing the yearly performance.  Your preparation will involve a complete analysis of the message that you want to deliver, creating several scripts and asking the input of the decision makers regarding the message.

Effective Listening

Effective communication of the businesses in Singapore will require effective listening.  You need to listen first to the point of other before you can communicate efficiently.  You may start your conversation by opening it with a question, listen carefully to the answer of your client and you can adjust your response depending on his answer.  A huge part of marketing requires a thorough understating of the specific needs of the client.  By asking critical questions, you will be able to get an insight on the current challenges.

Professional Communication

Being professional can help you to win the contract.  Before you send your e-mail or start with your business presentation, take time to proofread, use a company domain e-mail address and talk competently and articulately.  Businesses in Singapore need to act professionally if they want to be treated as a serious business.


Finally, utilise body language and be confident when marketing your business.  Shake the hand of the client firmly, give a big smile and have an eye contact while you are talking to your client.  Just relax and stay as you are and everything will be just fine.
