Review: Soundfreaq Sound Kick Bluetooth Speaker

I know many of you are like me who can’t go anywhere without music. Sure, there are affordable and yet decent earphones or mobile phones that provide us with the quality of sound we want, but if you’re a traveler who enjoys playing music out loud, you might like this as much as I did – Soundfreaq’s Sound Kick Bluetooth Speaker.

SoundFreaq Sound Kick Bluetooth Speaker Review

The audiophile in me looked forward to reviewing this Bluetooth speaker. I’ve heard so much raves about it being one of the top affordable portable speakers around which offers impressive sound quality. And, look, it’s all black! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Sound Kick is a very good option for music-loving travelers because it’s light, wireless and compact. Well, unless you’re planning on bringing just a purse with you. ๐Ÿ˜‰


If you’re ready to play music, you HAVE to pull out the extension chamber at the back. Otherwise, it won’t function. Also, doing this will produce full sound with a well-balanced bass, voice clarity and UQ3 spatial enhancement that can further give you much better audio.

Review: Crumpler Dry Red No 3 Luggage

I SUCK at packing. I swear, that’s one of the worst things about me. I guess it’s that hoarder in me who seems to have a hard time just packing what I need and I almost always end up bringing everything but the kitchen sink. My bro usually loses it and will do the packing for me just to keep me from bringing a huge bag on a short trip. I feel like I just need to find a luggage that can force or make me comfortable about packing light. And I think my search is over with the Crumpler Dry Red No 3 luggage.

The Dry Red No 3 is a 2-wheeled carry-on luggage. It’s a slick and compact bag that I can bring with me when I fly and not want to go through the hassle of checking in and waiting for my luggage when I land.

The outer part of the luggage is made of water-resistant fabric. You can tell the quality of the materials used here – something you can rely on when you buy a Crumpler bag.

The neoprene grip trolley handle can be retracted to full height, half or completely out of view, depending on how you want to carry the luggage with you. This is why my mom loved this bag too. She’s a little vertically-challenged. ๐Ÿ˜€

The retractable trolley handle is integrated into the luggage bag

The dual-padded grab handles on top and side are made of quality and comfortable neoprene. They’re already integrated into the whole bag, which is the top reason why I loved the Crumpler Dry Red No 3 luggage. I’ve always been concerned about handles of my luggage breaking off, which actually happened to me once when was I was traveling to Cebu. The grab handles of this bag make me feel more secure. ๐Ÿ™‚

Plans for My Future Home

Over seven years ago, we moved out of our old home in Navotas where I spent my childhood and most of my young adult life. I refused to live here in Malabon, so we were forced to buy a new house and lot in Bulacan, far from the places most familiar to us.

We had a plan laid out for that house. Because I mostly watch American TV series, I’ve always envied how kids in the US get to play at their backyards, and how adults barbecue or just leisurely spend time at their gardens, grow plants or relax under a tree. I wanted that. So, it was my idea to make sure that we have a front yard at our home in Bulacan.
