We can’t say we didn’t see this coming. Despite only offering three types of cake, the website for Jeanette Aw’s much-talked about new patisserie Once Upon A Time crashed minutes after it launched this morning (May 25) due to high volume traffic and orders.
When 8days.sg tried to access the website shortly after it (supposedly, see below) went live at 10am, we were greeted with a page stating: “Resource limit is reached. Website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later.”
According to a netizen who left a comment on Once Upon A Time’s Instagram, the website “reached its limit even before 10am”.
