My hubby has gone for a business trip to China last Saturday. He'll be home away from home for two weeks. Although hubby has left just a few days ago but the kiddos have been counting down the days like crazy until Daddy comes home. As usual, I've been preccupied with work, things on my own, with the kids and I am thankful to have my supportive family that helps out.
With today's fast paced high technology, the world has become easily connected with just a click of a mouse. Although we're physically separated, Skype is the system we used to chat when hubby is overseas. It's the the most popular VoIP (Voice over internet protocol) service and the best part is it provides excellent sound quality unlike other VOIP services.
Skype is user friendly, supports webcam and allows you to call other Skype users from your computer for free. Ironically enough, it seems to be the saviour for the family. We've been using this service since 2004. In the past, it would not have been possible to keep in touch like we do today what with the rates of phone bills being so incredibly high.
So if you have friends, relatives in overseas or spouse who goes on frequent business trips, then download Skype. The best part is you can see, chat and stay connected with your loved ones for free.
