Every day, I come home from work at 3 in the morning. Crazy.. I'm telling you. Haha!

The weather opposed it unfortunately. It rained all dang day. The party had an Easter Hunt for my nieces and nephews so I had to tell my family that there won't be any celebration but will save all the decor and props for next year.

I have a SECOND job!!

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Hi there! 

Yikes! It's been almost THREE weeks since I have done anything on my blog and I am so, so sorry about that! I have definitely been busy with my hostess job these past few weeks! However, I am so excited to tell you another great news that I just recently received and that is I have a new job AGAIN! Yay! Please celebrate with me! Cheers! Yes, I still have my hostess job at Amalfi's Italian Restaurant and I can say that is my morning job if that makes any sense. Haha! My new job is being a poultry trimmer at a widely known food processing plant called Tyson. Tyson is a plant that processes mostly of poultry. So Tyson is my night job because I work at 5 in the afternoon to 2 in the early morning. Yes. It's going to be long weeks ahead of me but hey, I'm not complaining at all. I am very blessed to even have a family who believes in me when they tell me I will get the two jobs I have right now. Speaking of these jobs, I have thought about my blog these days. I decided that I will only have sponsors for the month of April and that will be the end of sponsorships for my blog because I am sure that after April, things will get busy and hectic. I would not find time to help my sponsors out as much as I would love to. I think I will be fine with that though because I know I can now thoroughly support my blog on my own! Ah. Now, I am starting to loving the independence of being a blogger! How nice! Haha. Now to the actual content of my blog, I have NEW reviews and fun posts on many products that I have received the past few weeks from many companies! I will start posting this week so be on the lookout! Here are a few hints: Fit Snack, Frangipani Body Products, Pura D'or, A&M Treasure Box and more!

There ya go. Now you know a bit of what's happening in my life so far. If you like to know how my interview went with Tyson, it was a really long (4 hours) interview, then let me know in the comments! I am more than happy to tell you all how it went down. Haha! So yes, thank you so much for reading. I hope to see y'all next time. Until then, bye!!

MSA 30X Sound Amplifier Review

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

MSA 30X Sound Amplifier

Price: $29.95
Available in stores!

Hello there! Good evening. I'm back with another review on a new, different "hearing aid". So let's get started! My brother-in-law and my sister surprised me by getting me this single sound amplifier on one night. I was so excited because I haven't really liked the previous one that I reviewed HERE because the volume wasn't as loud as I wanted to be. So I immediately opened it. There were a lot of items in one package. I was impressed!
What I received in the box were:
  • 1 MSA 30X device
  • 6 silicone ear buds
  • 1 charging cradle
  • 1 adapter
  • 1 cleaning brush
Then my brother-in-law informed me that I didn't need any batteries for this sound amplifier. Instead all I need to do is to recharge the amplifier with a charging adapter. I was even more happy because batteries were a bit expensive if amplifier drains the batteries too quick that it didn't last long! I went on ahead to see which the ear buds were right size for my ear. I realized the ear buds were the same as the Walker's game hearing aid because all doesn't really fit into my ear as I wanted to. The small bud were perfect yet it doesn't really protect my ear from the plastic part on the hearing aid which it really hurts! Ouch! Of course, the large bud were too big and won't fit into my ear. The medium were a little tight but it fitted anyway. I waited about 15 minutes to let the amplifier to be charged and I was done being patient. Haha! So I went straight on ahead to put it into my right ear. Man... You guys. Seriously, it was soooo relieving to be able to hear again!! I can tell you that I really like this better than the Walker's game ear amplifier. The volume isn't too bad yet I can hear small, simple sounds like my nephew's toys playing, the water running in the sink, or even my own cat's meows. Nice, really nice!
What I also love about this sound amplifier are the basic components on it. Not too fancy. Just a simple buttons of volume and an on/off. The numbers, 1 to 4, is the lowest to highest volume and I love it because it's easy to find it with my finger. However, the only con about this product is the wire that connect the ear bud to the actual sound amplifier. I have really small ears and man, the wire is too long to fit along my ear. I have to use bobby pins and an elastic tie to hold my amplifier to my ear. What annoyance is that! Ugh... If only I had normal size ears, I would have been good but no, the years of wearing large hearing aids as a child have taken a toll on my ears. So yes. I am sure this would be a good amplifier to have if you are like me which is moderate to severe hearing. 

PROS:
  • Easy to set up.
  • Simple Controls
  • Good power output
  • Good sound quality

CONS:
  • The wire is too long to fit on my ears.
BEST USES:
  • Watching on TVs, laptops, or computers.
  • Talking in small or large rooms, (restaurants, homes, etc.)
  • Even can use in movie theaters!! 
Finally, this amplifier is a month old at least and the bobby pins I used to hold this onto my ear have started to damage the wire. So I'm afraid to say I have to invest into a new hearing aid for myself. Not a sound amplifier but an actual hearing aid! Whoo! Sucks that it's very expensive to get ONE even with health insurance, the price doesn't budge! Although, I am happy to get a better equipment than previous sound amplifier to be able to hear. Well, there you go. That is my review on MSA 30X sound amplifier. Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you next time. Until then, bye!!!
