Ending the vicious Globe billing cycle
This afternoon, I got an SMS from Globe saying my phone bill for the month was P5,068.97. I was surprised. I knew I had not made any international calls nor went abroad recently, and I had a sneaking suspicion that the extreme excess (my bill is usu just at P3,500) was from mobile Internet. The thing is, I’m on a high iPhone plan which allots me 100 hours of free Internet a month, which...
$2.99 worth of fun
I couldn’t sleep last night and while going through the App Store, saw this game called Doodle Find Pro. It was like Where’s Wally meets Bejeweled. The Free version lets you find selected items from a screen filled with random stuff. The objective is to find as much items as you can for points in a span of 1:30. I liked it so much that I wanted to get the Pro version. The Pro...
KitKat & Kitty
It’s been a long-ish time since I posted anything here because I have a new toy that’s been distracting me (more on that in another entry). I also realized that I need to post about something else other than my purchases. After a shared Twitter craving of ramen & Serenitea between K, C and myself one Friday night, we decided to meet up tonight to have a Konbini/Serenitea...
Tank vs the Sausages
Work today starts early so Grace had a breakfast tray ready for me on a bedside table (vienna sausages & an egg). I went to the bathroom to pee and Tank as usual heard me and I heard the tinkle of his collar bell as he sped up the stairs to greet me. As I walked back to the room, I saw him perched on the bed hovering over my plate, but I was too late the hero. The sausages were gone (if...
Tempted By The Fruit Of Another: My Blackberry...
I never knew how everyone thought of me as a die-hard Apple fangirl until I sent out my first tweet from my brand-spanking new white Blackberry Curve 8520 courtesy of Globe’s Great White Eyeball held recently at Republiq. The event was a congregation of Blackberry messenger chat buddies. It was dim inside the club, but every guy from my vantage point looked cute despite the presence...
Vets in Practice, Second Time's The Charm
Last March I recounted my not-so-stellar experience with Vets in Practice here. After receiving a follow-up call from one of their senior doctors and owners, I warmed up considerably (entry here). Earlier this morning, Grace had told me that Gucci had been peeing with blood for the 4th consecutive day. I was alarmed because I am an alarmist and the presence of blood in bodily fluids is never...
Twilight Comes To Barbie: Mattel Not Spared
Mattel x Edward Cullen What is Mattel trying to say about their boys? First, a flamboyant, clothes-loving, swirly purply penmanship Ken steals the scenes in Toy Story 3. And then, on a pullout trip at Rustan’s toy section yesterday, I saw this: Twilight, Barbie-style! I only saw Edward. Mattel stayed very faithful to the series. They even made him (snicker) sparkle. I wonder...
Review: NARS Multiple Tint (Turks & Caicos)
I’m a big fan of NARS’s Multiples. They’re multi-use creamy sticks that can be used for the eyes, cheeks and lips, but I mostly use mine as a no-fuss, quick-swipe blush. Plus, I’m highly tickled that I carry a Multiple in Orgasm in my handbag. When I came across a review of NARS’s new limited iteration of their Multiple in tint form on Temptalia, I knew I had to...
Liberty of London and other notions
After a meeting at Powerplant today, it was really sad to come across a Fully Booked in the process of downsizing. (Seems like they are getting rid of half their floor space.) I promised myself I was just going to browse, but I felt so bad for these notebooks being stuck in that sad place that I had to take them home with me. Like this adorable embossed art doggie notebook: ...
