The PinoyMacLovers iLove iPod Project Entry#3

Donna got her a iPod as a special gift from her boyfriend Nic - who happens to be our iPod lovin' beach bum from last May. Donna and her white 1GB iPod Nano go well together because they're just both so adorably petite (Donna stands 5'1" and weighs in at a light 92lbs). Her friends tease her endearingly, calling her the Unano with a Nano (unano means little person). Here's a photo of Donna and her Nano. Aren't they cute? :)

Lani Pillinger Photos

[UPDATE 25-July-2006]
I've finally been able to find a few Lani Pillinger photos to post on my site. Talented photographer, Carla Y. Berroya-Foster, was very gracious and allowed me to post some of the photographs she took of Ms. Pillinger. Hope you like the pictures! :)

You may get in touch with Carla Y. Berroya-Foster by sending her an email at carla_berroya [at] yahoo [dot] com. You may also visit her flickr album where you will see a diverse array of her work that includes portraits, events photos, and fashion & modeling shoots.


[UPDATE 01-July-2006]
The Apple Of My i gallery seems to be inaccessible now. I don't know if it will be up again.


I get a siginificant amount of daily web traffic from people doing internet search queries for pictures of Ms. Lani Pillinger. I actually just mentioned her once in a previous entry, where I wrote about the winners of the Apple Of My i photo contest. The photograph featuring Lani Pillinger as the subject won third place for one of the said competition's categories. I don't know much about Lani Pillinger, but a quick google search will tell you that she is a Fil-Australian model who appeared with the popular local band, Hale, in a Nescafe ad. She is also currently being linked to local actor, Marvin Agustin.

If you'd like to view photos of her, you can visit the Apple Of My i photo gallery, which is still available for viewing as of this post. Click here and here.

Buy New Underwear For The Chance To Win An iPod Nano!

Underwear is an essential piece of clothing. It keeps things in place and prevents unwanted chafing. So it's always good to keep your clothes drawer stocked with fresh pairs. If you need to buy new ones, you might want to head on over to your nearest Robinsons Department Store to get up to 50% off on selected items. This is part of their underwear fair entitled "Down to Basics" that runs for the entire month of June 2006. And for every Php 300 single or accumulated receipt purchase, you will get a raffle coupon for the chance to be one of 20 winners of a brand new iPod Nano! Never has the prospect of buying new underwear become so exciting! And you also have the chance to meet and greet some local celebrities who are participating in the event (I'm just not sure whether they'll be fully clothed or walking around in their underwear). Visit any of the Robinsons Deparment Store branches for more details.

Setting The Default Web Browser On A Mac

I've switched from one browser to another numerous times. I started out with Internet Explorer (which I hate), and eventually switched to Netscape. And then Safari was born so I started using that. I liked using Safari and stayed with it for quite some time. But I would come to realize that my browser switching days were far from over as I would eventually switch to Firefox (at that time, I thought tabbed browsing was the best thing since sliced bread). And then I discovered Camino, and wanted to know what it was like to use it. I wasn't particularly impressed, so I decided to go back to Safari (which welcomed me once again with open arms and, at that time, new tabbed browsing capabilities). Currently, Safari and I remain very happy together.

When you install a new browser, it usually asks you if you would like to set it as the default one for your system. Click YES, and the new default browser is set. If you'd like to change the default web browser back to any of the previous browsers that you have, you can use Safari. Just open the program, go to Preferences, and under the General tab, you will find an option that will allow you to select your new default browser.

*Note: Camino's General Preferences will let you do the same thing.
