How Eveready Batteries Became a part of my Life

My favorite Eveready Gold Batteries

Eveready batteries had always been a part of my life.  Believe it or not, it had actually made my life more memorable. With its 110 years of existence, it remains to be helpful for every Filipino household. Eveready is a brand we have trusted for years and continues lighting up lives even up to this day. With long-life exceptional performance backed with five years guaranteed shelf life, Eveready provides reliable, longer lasting power in our devices.

When I was a kid, I’ve always dreamed of having a walking doll. For young girls, it was the coolest item back then. I don’t know if you could call it a status symbol early on, but it seemed like every girl in our village has one, except me.  You see, my mom wasn’t like most mothers. For one, she was a single parent. My mom wasn’t fond of giving me toys as presents. If I wanted something, I had to work hard for it. Mom eventually gave her nod to buy me the walking doll I had been jonesing for years only after I topped my class in first grade.
I was delighted when we finally bought my walking doll named Lea Michelle.  She had blue eyes and long curly blond hair. She also had a bedimpled smile painted on her face. I could vividly recall that she would only come to life with three AA Eveready Batteries behind her back.  The minute I put the dry cell inside her was indeed a magical moment. I held my doll’s hands as she walked with me. By pressing her tummy, she would belt into a song. I would always loved to play with her and I even had her beside me when I sleep. She had been my best friend, confidante and playmate. Pretty soon, I had outgrown my doll. But the happiness and all the other memories she had given me will always be inside my heart. She made my childhood life happy despite being an only child. And it was all possible because of her Eveready batteries.

In college, I had discovered my interest in reading books. I became a bookworm after reading books by Paulo Coelho, J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Mitch Albom, Sophie Kinsella, and Maya Angelou.  I became a voracious reader that putting down a good book is the least I would do. Using a handy flashlight packed with Eveready batteries, I’d read my books even at night. I used to have the “Hogwarts headache,”—which was described as a mild condition, a tension headache possibly accompanied by neck or wrist pains caused by unhealthily long reading sessions of huge hardbound Harry Potter books. I remember mom would often scold me regarding my night reading habit, but I simply couldn’t resist reading, I couldn’t put a good book down.

I have gone to places and met many people, and I now have a very significant role in giving out stories and articles that influence the lives of my readers. A lot of things have greatly changed, but I guess there were some things that remain the same. I’d say that Eveready batteries had brought me up by supplying me with the necessary tools to navigate this life—through all the peaks and valleys that I must traverse. Now, as a blogger, Eveready Gold Long Alkaline battery’s what I still use when I shoot photos for my articles.  I still read books at night using my flashlight for the same reasons. I am still an Eveready user and fan, and for me, some things are really for keeps…
