Fadmom Status

posted by constance

For you information, if you are still following Fadmom from Fadaboutfood, do not go to the ‘dot com’ but go to http://fadaboutfood.blogspot.sg/ instead. I had forgotten to renew my domain and found out that some website buyer had bought over my domain address and if I wanted to get back my blog, I would have to pay them a premium price for that… HA! whatever for.. Not that I use this blog to make money. But I know I have traffic but still, I would never let someone make me pay that premium price. Moving on to a BlogSpot also free up stress that I do not have to worry about renewing my domain, ever.

Also, the blog was for myself, my own recipe collection that I gladly share with people so if you still want to look for any recipes that was accessible, just add in ‘blogspot’ and you can access my recipes online again.

Now that I am busy and no time to bake or cook at least my food blog will be a memory to me, and when I have time, who knows, I can continue with this free BlogSpot again.

Oh quite cool that now that I changed the layout a little.. a pictorial blog… check it out and you will find out.

No Spa Holiday

posted by constance

I had been longing to try out a spa holiday. And I had won myself and my spouse Spa services at Fullerton Hotel recently, inclusive of a weekend stay with breakfast and dinner for two. We went for the stay and meals but no, we didn’t go for the Spa. As much as I wanted to, I didn’t make the appointment because I wanted to spend the good day with my children too. It was a good weekend charger for me not to have to abide by all the appointments if I had made the appointment. I know, the massages would have been great but I decided not too. My kids couldn’t wait to get into the swimming pool. Much to our dismay, although this is a luxury hotel, the pool was just a big disappointment. It was just a lap pool, nothing for kids, no frills and very small. I think they should have just taken it away and replace it with a relaxing garden instead. Perhaps Fullerton hotel is just not totally meant for family holidays but I still feel that no matter how adult or childish you are, the pool is a must for one to just melt your tension away. You need to find that space that makes a hotel away from the bustling concrete. I brought the kids early in the morning for a good swim and it was a little too cold… wishing they had installed an indoor pool with a raypak heater, would have been a tad nicer.. No one seems serious to go for a morning swim, save for a Korean couple who just wanted to dip in the waters. But the pool is meant for laps so, dips are not really practical since this is a really narrow pool, probably the most two person side by side doing their own laps….

How Mobile is Your Mobile

posted by constance

Remember the old school telephone? The big black dial phone? Can’t seem to find it around anymore. The last one I saw was a digital piece displayed like an old phone. But no dialing-abled. I guess I can’t use that anyway as my phone is connected via digital network. Not the usual phone cable wire.Nowadays we are mostly using smartphones. iPhones, Samsung, Sony, LG and etc. One person in a family, at least, uses it. And many people also seem to be carrying a tablet instead of the usual laptop. But one thing for sure, using the tablet to answer your phone calls and take photos are really silly as we are moving towards the portable era. I saw few people using the Samsung Tab to take photos… gosh they do look silly using such a large piece of product and some even tried to talk by putting the tablet to their ear and shouting out loud in reply… are they showing off or just being ridiculous? hahahahha

No you will never catch me doing something like that! I prefer the good small sized mobile phone that is more comfortable to my ears!
