I was on my way to The Distillery Fort when I got a text from Mark we Legendary saying that he was at Titan Burgos. I dropped by to say hello one last time. Thank you Titan Burgos for all the great sneaker memories. Now on to BIGGER things!

Here's another colorway of the KD VI that released this past weekend. If you haven't picked up a pair of the KD VI yet I suggest you add these to your list of next must cop Nike Basketball shoes. What's the forecast you ask? Make it rain, yo.

And OH MY GOD at those RESTOCKS.

I wonder if they accept international orders. I know a lot of US folks who would jump at this.

You noticed the new button on the sidebar? Yes folks, I am now on Instagram. I finally gave in after constant ribbing from people around me. Does this make me "cool" now? Yes? Yay! I still don't see the point, though. Maybe to stalk other people but for me it serves little purpose since I already have THIS awesome photo blog that you and I love. :)

Don't ask if I bought a new iPhone or Android device because I still have my old Blackberry. I'm not into the latest gadgets. A working phone (that can text, call, tweet and fb) is all I need. I just have my PA Instagram for me then I post comments using Statigram. Kinda poor/ghetto but I don't care. It gets the job done and that's all that matters. Plus I hate it when I share the same table with people who are constantly on their smartphones doing whatever (IG, twitter, fb) and utter less than 3 words. Talk about social media making people less social in real life. 

If you're one of the "cool" folks on Instagram and want to see what "cool" stuff I post here's a preview of what to expect.

What did I do after all the Lebron madness? I had dinner with him at Aracama then went clubbing with him at Prive. Sike! He did go to those two places. Me? I went home, transferred over 10GB worth of photos and videos to my laptop, showered then headed to my usual spot Tuesday nights. It's Soul Kitchen at Imperial Ice Bar, boyyyyyyyy!

When news broke that Lebron James is visiting the Philippines, the first thing that I thought of was to give away free tickets on my site just like what I did when Nike flew in Kobe in 2011. Unfortunately, it was tougher to get tickets this time around. BUT since I love you all I will give away one (1) of my PATRON ROW B (second row) tickets to a dedicated Lebron fan.

Who's been losing sleep over Lebron's visit on Tuesday? * RAISES HAND * If you're a true Lebron fan and haven't checked out the exhibit of customized Lebron Xs at Nike Park BHS yet then this entry is for you. Let me know which one is your fav!

Margaux knocked some sense into me today. My weekend would have gone to waste if it wasn't for her. Thanks, dear!

I asked birthday girl Anikka what she wanted to have for dinner. She said "something fried" so I brought her to this joint. It's a new tonkatsu place that recently opened in Serendra. Visit the official Saboten site HERE or view the menu HERE.

After a 7-week vacation in the Philippines, Sarah's baby sister Amanda will be flying back to the beautiful city of San Francisco.  What better way to send her off than a BBQ! It was also an advance birthday party for her as she turns 20 on the 21st. Happy birthday, Amanda! I hope you had a blast here. Have a safe flight and say hi to my city for me!

Grilled liempo and burgers. Mmmmm....

I saw my buddy Shikko a few weeks ago when he and his girlfriend join the SunDAZED fun. We were chopping it up when he asked why I don't post as much about food anymore. Well, here you go homeslice! You can thank me later. :)

Sandiwcheese is located right next to the original Banapple on Katipunan Avenue. (southbound)

After 3 years of pure awesome sauce (and changing the game), Titan Burgos Circle will close its doors for good. 

Why? Because Titan Two Parkade is there now so there's no need for two Titan stores only blocks apart.
(Plus admit it, going to Burgos Circle is a hassle.)

Grab some great deals for the next two weeks from Titan Burgos Circle.

It's been a depressing season for my San Francisco Giants, losing 19 out of its last 26 games before today's game, but you know what? There's still a lot of baseball to be played. Waking up midway to Tim Lincecum's first no-hitter is a sign that we ain't done yet. To baseball experts out there, never count us out. Last time I checked, we are still the world champions!

I have never seen a no-hitter with such a high pitch count before. Timmy really worked hard for this no-no. (click to play)

I had nothing planned the whole weekend so when I saw people tweeting about the launch of the new Toyota Vios at the NBC Tent, I hit up someone part of the event and asked her to include my name on the guest list (Thank you. You know who you are!). I have never been to a car launch before so I thought it would be cool to check it out. Plus I was hoping to see my son's godfather and say what up. (He owns a few Toyota dealerships in  the country.)

Shout outs to all the lovely people I saw. Now it's time for some photos + a video. It's Toyota, not Toy Yoda! #startthefun

Ines just  picked up a new game for all of you to enjoy. Get ready for some Twister action! Plus a new Jenga set that explodes. LOL! Complimentary valet parking available.

If you saw me Friday or Saturday then you saw this HUF hat from we Legendary on my head. I rarely wear loud hats but wL had so many nice HUF ones to choose from that I didn't know which one to pick so I ended up with this. I know, right?

I can't believe Slam Magazine is 20 years old! (first issue came out in May '94 with Larry Johnson on the cover)

This was my basketball bible in high school. Never missed an issue along with other mags like The Source and Rap Pages.

20 years, 170 issues and thousands of endless basketball pages covered.

It's just fitting that 3 of the best basketball players worldwide in the past 3 decades make the cover(s)!
