[What seems like] 10 years and 10 freight tons’ worth of sweat, blood, and tears later, TV5′s lifestyle-slash-recommendations portal, Kristn.com, has finally gone live. Now you know why TechLokal.com has not been updated as regularly as it should be; I’ve been working on Project Kristn with TV5′s New Media team for months.
It’s still in beta, but I’d appreciate it if you could give the site a whirl, check out the directories, read the articles, and leave comments during your free time. Please follow the live blogs, too. We’re covering the Samsung Galaxy Note II launch tomorrow, for one, and have live-blogged events like Research In Motion CEO Thorsten Heins’ visit to the Philippines.

P.S. Below is my TechLokal.com partner’s write-up on Kristn.com—without me holding a gun to his head, surprisingly.

Wondering what to wear, where to dine, and which movie to see on a special night with your loved one? Why not ask the new girl in the metro, Kristn?
Kristn.com is TV5′s go-to girl for almost everything life-related. That includes fashion and beauty, food, travel, and our clear favorites, tech and gaming, to mention a few. Even guy stuff. You know, pro and collegiate men’s basketball, and cars—there’s plenty of them locally available 4-wheeled machines to keep your pulse racing.
Among the things that make Kristn.com inviting are its product and establishment listings, bar and restaurant menus, reviews by industry experts and celebrities, and rewards-based interaction mechanics. Think a localized Yelp with perks.
Swing by Kristn.com and see for yourself. (And do make the tech section one of your priorities. Heh.)
