Review of my Philips AJ 3115:

My dad gifted me a Philips alarm clock for my last Birthday. Since then, it has been one of my best companions. I promised my dad that I will write a review of the same and here it goes.

After the new year celebrations last night, we came back home pretty late. And, after watching some new year programs in the TV, I realized I had to go to the church early in the morning for the new year mass. I was sure I wouldn't wake up so early, but thanks to my new Philips alarm clock. I tuned the radio alarm and went to sleep with the confidence to wake up when it is time for church.

The Philips AJ 3115 alarm clock I have at home is a very cool gadget. Let me give some background on how I got it.

I still remember how long it took me to get it. My birthday was coming soon and I couldn't think on what gift to ask for. My parents told me I am going to become a teenager and there won't be anymore birthday gifts from next year since I am no longer a kid. So, I really wanted to choose a cool item as my last birthday gift. I didn't have to think a lot. I always wanted an alarm clock so that I could wake up early and put my school timetable and pack my bag. Since then, every single day I would come back from school and search all over the net for my dream alarm clock. After looking for a long time in Amazon, Flipkart and almost 13 other online shops which I had never heard of, I found the perfect alarm clock. It was none other than the Philips AJ 3115 alarm clock radio.

Even if it is offered as a gift to me, it takes a lot of efforts to get anything I like, which starts with convincing my parents about the need, then listening to their lessons about the people living without it, then finding the best deals and so on. This time, it was relatively easier because I could convince them that I can wake up early myself with the help of an alarm clock and do all the homework even before they wake up.

My dad tried to buy it online and we learnt quickly that this item is not in stock in any of the online shops in India. My dad even called Philips dealers and checked with them but even they could not help to get this item. Around that time, one of our family friends was coming from USA to India and we decided to get it from there. We found a good deal at Walmart for about US$ 15. And in a few weeks, our friends brought it for us and I was the happiest boy in the world!

Today I woke up to the radio and when I pressed the button to turn off the radio, I looked at it and appreciated myself for choosing this cool gadget. Now I can't even think of waking up without it now.
