new button

I haven’t been posting this for the past few months as there has been lots of action here at Dominique’s Desk.  The kids are having their mid year exams soon and I have to prepare them for the upcomming exams.

Achievements for April


  1. Dominique’s Desk Fan Page has already broken the 10,000 fans mark and is slowly edging upwards to the 11K mark.
  2. Alexa ranking is down further and I hope that it remains the same or reduces further. Last glance it was 61,317
  3. I’ve secured a few new corporate sponsors and am continuing new campaigns with existing sponsors. Look out for my posts on items from  Philips, Drypers, Lifebuoy and Comfort.
  4. I’ve completed 4 book reviews, 8 giveaways and 5 product reviews on top of the normal daily posting on the blog. I still have quite a few book reviews to be completed but will finish them up months to come.
  5. I did my first media coverage event this month and had fun covering the #mozziewipeout campaign launch by NEA.
  6. I’ve attended my first baking class for the year and learned how to bake Hokkaido Chiffon Cake.
  7. I’ve completed 1/2 of the photo books which I have planned to do this year. MIL’s mother’s day present has been given to her.
  8. I’ve manage to have more couple lunches with R when he is in town 🙂 Love it!!


Major Fail area

  1. Weight has remained at 64-65kg. I have tried adjusting the portion size of my food and cutting out all the unwanted calories from junk foods. I need to step up on the exercise routine
  2. The year end  2012/2013 photobook has yet to be done and I schedule it to be done before June.
  3. I have yet to read all the  DSLR camera magazines which I bought back in 2012. However  I have been reading the photography books which I borrowed from the library.
