headphnes are an essential part of me. i always put it on every time I need to listen to music or watch videos or simply, wanted to zone out. and just recently I got the chance to review the Philips A5PRO headphones just a few days before the year ended.

one of the features that i love is the quality f the sound. hnds down, it’s really good. I can really feel the music blasting through my ears. the soft whispers from the movies were like love note note gently blown in the air. sweet.

another thing I love about this headphone is its coiled wire. i can easily extend its length without much worrying that it might break or snap. (I know it’s never gonna happen!) and another thing that I like bout this headphone is its ease of transferring its cable from the left earpiece to the right, depedng on your preference.

Oh wait, did I mention that you can easily fold its sides? this means it saves a lot of storage and can fit well in a smll pouch. neat!

Easy-to-eat protein source: An adventure must-have

Going out of town can be quite an adventure and challenging at the same time, especially if you are not familiar with the place you are visiting. Whether you’re heading to the beach, mountains, or to a relatively new urban center, looking for a place to eat is always a part of the excitement. And being at a new place is not a guarantee that there will always be healthy (and delicious) food that’s readily available when the hunger pangs strike in.
