Tattoo, the leading authority in broadband, introduces the new Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini.
With speeds running up to 10 mbps, the Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini Stick comes with the revolutionary HSPA+ device—all in with the Tattoo Postpaid Plan 2,199 with Unlimited Data and 200 SMS to Globe/TM monthly.
Subscribers may also choose a MyFi Device (speeds of up to 5Mbps) at an additional +P50 per month, so they can share their Tattoo Mobile Broadband connection with up to five devices.


It is the first internet device commercially available running on the largest 4G Network in the country for every user to enjoy seamless connectivity anytime, anywhere.
In a Philippine first, Globe announces a major expansion of its current 4G footprint by becoming the first carrier in the Philippines to launch the commercial roll out of 4G mobile technology.
This rollout, the first phase of which utilizes the global standard HSPA+ or Evolved High-Speed Packet Access, will complement Globe Telecom’s existing 4G WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) network.
The rollout of Globe 4G mobile network will provide its subscribers high-speed broadband access with the added convenience of full mobility.

Currently Globe 4G mobile technology is accessible in Marikina, Quezon City, Makati, Pasay, Las Pinas, Taguig and the city of Manila.
By end of 2011, Globe expects to increase its 4G presence dramatically with continued expansion planned into 2012.

The swag boxes are for media only, but you can buy the pieces separately at Watson’s or SM department stores.
My favorite product is the mascara, which has a built-in comb, so your eyelashes don’t come out clumpy

Last Expander Frame Plus Mascara - Majolica Majorca

The eye pencils glide over with solidly colors and are easy to apply


I also love the Aurora Tear Liner, which adds that sparkle to the corners of your eyes


The collections, colors, and packaging are very Japanese. Wish we had these when I was younger.

Are you a Complicated Girl?

“Filipino men like uninteresting girls because they’re intimidated by anything they don’t think they can control. Kasi if the girl is rather unique, it means they have a strong personality. From my observation, Filipino men cannot handle girls with a lot of personality. Mahilig sila sa sunod-sunuran. Think: a girl who will look pretty and occasionally give a ladylike laugh as she looks on while you and your drinking buddies have a drunken good time. Actually, better yet, she’s the one serving the drinks to you and your buddies. From what I’ve seen, Filipina girls with strong personalities are either single, married to/dating foreigners, or married to/dating Filipino men who are quite unconventional themselves.”

According to this Complicated Girl Index, I am only 79.5% complicated—shocking!!
Now take the quiz. Give yourself 1 point for each of the 100 traits listed below.
Give yourself .5 if it only half applies. If you score 75 and up, you’re complicated.
Post your scores below and tell me what I missed.

Pretty love birds Daniel Matsunaga and Heart Evangelista chose customized pieces.


I got a personal tour from Cheryl Lee to see for myself. I was very much amused by the vast charm selection, which you can customize into bracelets, necklaces and more as gifts to friends, loved ones or to yourself!

Wagyu burgers for Father’s Day

In my experience, Dad is harder to find a gift for than Mom.
As a girl, I really have to guess what men want. I’ve given up buying stuff for my husband because he’s really a simple guy.
Or maybe he’s complicated. I can never can tell if he will like this shirt or that shoe.
When he left this morning, he said he would take the Simple Guy quiz in the car.
One thing he does love are steaks and burgers.
Just like my Dad. If burger is on the menu, he’ll have that. If it’s Wagyu, so much the better.

For Father’s Day, Melbourne Prime now offers 100% Premium Australian Wagyu Burgers as a new addition to its Wagyu range.
The burgers are finely textured with a rich Wagyu flavor.
At 180 g. per portion, they’re large enough to satisfy even those with a hearty appetite.

The burgers are easy to prepare. Even at the last minute you can cook them straight from the freezer.
Just pop them into a hot, smoking pan, cook until juices run clear—which means they’re well done (or to 75ºC if you have a digital thermometer). Apart from being convenient, cooking from frozen also means you get a nice, crunchy crust.
Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy.

Melbourne Prime’s Signature Wagyu Burger Gift Box is available at Php 2,975.
What’s In The Box:
A stack of seven 100% Australian Wagyu burger patties
Murray River gourmet salt flakes
Melbourne Prime’s own legendary burger seasoning
A portion of choice French Brie cheese (Quick tip: pop a couple of slices on the burger patty while the last side is cooking so you get that nice cheese “melt”.)

Father’s Day is fast approaching, so order your gift box by emailing or messaging them on Twitter or Facebook.

You can also buy them at the Melbourne Prime store, open Monday to Friday from 10 AM-6 PM only.
