Face-Off: BamBoomPh vs LoudBasstard

Bamboomph and Loudbastard

If you have noticed, the world is slowly going back to basics. The popularity of using all natural products swept the world from food, to clothing and even gadget accessories.  One of the innovations for gadgets include the bamboo made mobile phone amplifier.

Bamboomph vs Loudbasstard

While I have no personal knowledge who came first and I am really not sure which is the clone and which is not. But the hype for these babies are phenomenal.  Loudbasstard was more popular in my universe when I heard of all natural mobile bamboo amplifiers. I only heard about Bamboomph when it was given to me at the ISI Mixer party and I was told it originated from Cebu. Loudbasstard was a gift from AyosDito.ph now OLX.ph.

Bamboomph and Loudbastard

Well, while makers of these genius invention will say their product is the original, I just recently heard of customized ones like these a few days ago.  While they are the same in terms of they are made of bamboo,  they differ in some specifications like the cut, the finish and the sound quality. Let me show you why.

 

Bamboomph is thickicker in width Loudbastard is slimmer.

IMG_20140901_140304BamboomPh has a glossy finish while Loudbasstard has a matte finish.

Bamboomph has a few centimeters wider phone slot compared to Loudbastard

And if you look closely, BamboomPh has a wider base and the side openings are placed a little higher compared to the Loudbasstard with very slim base and low side opening. Because of that the sound quality is also different.

Bamboomph vs LoudbastardYou may also notice that the base wrap is different.  Bamboomph uses what seems to be an abacca weaved rope for the base wrap, while Loudbasstard used rattan strips.

Loudbastard vs BamboomphAs for the size of the bamboo used for both product you make take note that the size variations are creationa of Mother Nature.

 

But because of the width of the base and the placement of the side sound exit points, the sound quality is different.  I like the sound from the BamboomPh than Loudbasstard. It’s all about the base.  Mas buo yung sound from BamboomPh sa loudbastard mejo sabog. Gets? 

If you want to try the two products come see me lol!  Or if you want to buy either of the two, they are priced almost the same nothing above Php1,000.00. You may visit www.bamboom.co for Bamboomph and www.loudbasstard.com for Loudbasstard.

Stay gorgeous everyone!

There’s only one reason for me to stay in your life, if you are happy when I am with you. Because there’s no reason to stay if you are unhappy with me. I don’t want to be the one to hold you back and find your happiness. We all deserve tp be happy.  I will only be happy if the people who I’m with are happy when I’m around, if not then there is no reason to stay.

Juat like these two characters, Cony and Brown. We all like each other when we first met. Hugs and kisses for everyone!

WIWTD #32: If I Stay
And then one day, Brown was happy no more.

WIWTD #32: If I Stay
So, I stick with Cony who is always happy and loving while losing my grip with Brown who was drifting away. I tried to hold on but I felt it was gone.

WIWTD #32: If I Stay
Mateo Guidicelli saw everything, so he came over and said. “Hi, I will be happy to be around you.”

Teddy's Bigger Burger Manila

Teddy's Bigger Burger Manila

I’ve tried the Teddy’s Original Burger 5oz patty and I can say I liked it. Taste like gourmet but better (kinda salty for my taste maybe because of the combination of the black pepper while grilling the jalapeno and blue cheese I had with it but generally it is better than the fast food burgers because of the 100% US ground chuck patty and their famous sauce we will never know what it is!

Oh another tip if what’s in the menu, their milk shakes are delish and filling, try the peanut buttwr shake it taste like Snikers!

Stay gorgeous everyone!

WIWTD #31: Goodbye and Hello

2014-08-16 08.25.36

When there’s goodbye, there’s always hello. After poking along for a few weeks moving stuff one by one,
We finally bid goodbye to summer and our summerhome and said hello to our new place in Mandaluyong.

This is what I’m gonna miss the most the pool area abd the huge grass area like in a resort. So I just had to say goodbye the proper way, with a crazy photo shoot!

2014-08-16 14.48.23
Sigh the pool area I’m gonna miss it!

2014-08-16 15.01.21
And the playground!

20140816_074506
But really am gonna miss the pool!

2014-08-16 15.01.05

And the green grassy area

20140816_072745

And yes the playground!

20140816_074557

But seriously I will miss the place because of all of the above plus the fact that it’s just a few step away from the MRT.

Why are we moving? Because the unit is too small for us it can’t accommodate all the awesome stuff we have and want to have and all the gifts I get here and there.

2014-08-16 08.25.36

What I wore:
Top: Forever 21
Jeans: Trifted
Belt: Mango
Flipflop: Havaianas MYOF2014

Here’s me looking at our new place. And we will be there for good. We got a bigger unit with 2 bedrooms a laundry area, 2 big bathrooms and a nice big kitchen! I love it!

2014-08-16 14.46.05

Stay gorgeous everyone!
