I got a message from Armel around 7 in the morning saying that he was on his way to Nike Park The Fort to line up and try to be one of the lucky 259 people who'll be given a stub to purchase a pair of LIGHTS OUT Manny Pacquiao Air Trainer 1.

I arrived at the venue a little before noon and saw this. It may not look much but the head count was over 300. People were asked to line up in a zigzag pattern so as not to bother other establishments in the area. Over a hundred camped out and braved the wet weather overnight. Special releases here are worse since people pay their housemaids, drivers, gardeners and even less fortunate friends to line up for them.

Inside the store. I still need the purple Footscapes

A little entertainment

The guy in the hat shouted "Tutunawin kita!" I have no idea what it meant.

Miko with LIGHTS OUT lolas. The other 3 stubs went to good friends. Now that's what you call a hook up.

We went back to Nike Park and the line was gone so we got some stubs even though we didn't need them. I got this. SPARTA!!!
