Travelling in Manila and in the nearby provinces is not easy without my music player. It keeps me going while listening to music while travelling. . As if my travel even in far away places passes with ease. It’s exciting and more fun.
Gone are the days when I used to carry a SONY Pocket radio/cassette player with AM/FM. I only purchased original cassette tapes of my favorite artists. I use rechargeable batteries instead of the alkaline batteries. When cassette tapes were obsolete, I purchased SONY discman and both original CDs and fake CDs. I carry around 20 cds.
Because I always carry a bulky sling bag, my son suggested to me that I better purchase an mp3 player so as to get rid of the lots and lots of cds that I used to carry. That time , I have no idea what an mp3 is. At a thrift shop in Baguio, I spotted a “Creative “brand mp3. The cost then was P350 so I gamble with the product. Its good. Its functioning.
While I was in Manila, I spotted along a secondhand store in Quiapo sidewalk selling used mp3. Thinking it was an original due to apple logo, I purchased the mp3 player with am/fm. Its nice but it was only at home when I’ve learned from my son that it’s fake.
Next of my player was an apple iPod which I later gave to my daughter. Then came another apple iPod, black 32 GB and finally, apple iPod Touch. Todate, I enjoy using with iPod with lots of apps. One of my favorite game is Chess.
And for update with my playlist, I have iTunes in our pc. We must admit that times have changed and so with gadgets.
