Back to Normal Transmission : Last Daily Dose


Daily Dose: Back to Normal Transmission

It had been a year since we had channelled our focus to bringing you the latest news and updates on Covid19 related matters. 

Despite being a family lifestyle website, we decided on pivoting so we can bring awareness of the pandemic to more people. Along the way, we set up a new column - Daily Dose. Daily Dose was set up to bring you the daily updates on news related to Singapore with a  focus on Covid19.

Now, with Covid19 on the back foot and the introduction of the vaccine to the general community, this pandemic has become less than compared to a year back.

During this one year, there were over 300 Covid19 related posts vs less than 100 posts related to family lifestyle on A feather in our cap was an indirect mention during last year Budget. Many of our suggestions were also adopted during the fight against this virus. 

With the situation under control, we think that Daily Dose would not be necessary... for now. As such, we will be ceasing daily dose on the website. Instead, updates on Covid19 will be on Facebook as it has been the platform that had served us well in reaching out.

It is time to go back to normal transmission. 

For those who had joined us due to Covid19, we hope you would continue with us as we bring you the latest Family Lifestyle News and Reviews. Also, we will be turning our focus on Family Finance under Money Matters. Thank you for staying with us all this while. We look forward to your continuing support!
