CHASE THE CAT

December 28, 2011, Fiamma Bar in Jupiter St. Makati – Highlighted not just mere celebrities and a star studded cast, but moreover, it was an event that gathered the most wanted influencers in Philippine society.

...and they are OUR PUMA Ambassadors!

By turning the Fiamma bar into a PUMA SOCIAL CLUB and incorporating the grand scheme of things for the night, the brand allowed a sneak preview of what it is to come in an exciting year 2012. Alongside, PUMA gave thanks to all its Brand Ambassadors for the journey through 2011 by sending of what is, a PUMA SOCIAL year-end party.

It was a fun intimate after hours gathering for these social athletes as they sat and enjoyed the company of the night. There was no superstar, no crazy fanatics, and no rules for the night but just plain fun like the norm in any social settings of long fun talks on what has been and what will be, booze like water, and laughter of whatever topic that can source out simple joys.

Like how the PUMA SOCIAL anthem goes, “We are mighty mighty athletes!”, and PUMA with its Ambassadors bid goodbye to 2011 and says hello to 2012.

From websites crashing to thousands of people camping out all over the world, I can't help but appreciate the good people behind Titan more for all the great things they did today. They pulled out all the stops in transforming Ronac Art Center's The Playground to Air Jordan heaven. Air Jordan XI Concord release, NBA 2K12 Tournament and Air Jordan exhibit all in one place? Now THAT'S something SPECIAL.

When this project was presented to me I knew right away that I wanted in. I was tasked to be the curator of the exhibit. Sounds simple? Not really. See, getting a group of "sneakerheads" to display their collections is easy but getting the RIGHT people to participate is difficult. Most of the collectors I know are low key and never pretentious, something that's rare in today's scene. So when I got the nod from people I personally handpicked, I couldn't help but get stoked for everybody involved. How many times can you actually say that you were part of an exhibit that was sanctioned by Nike and Titan?

To Mackie, Ryan, Mon, Toots, Hans, Jason, Carlo, Ali (who I have yet to meet) and most especially Garry... THANK YOU. It was an honor to be trusted to feature your prized collections.

Now let's go to the photos!

These framed Jordan posters are spiff! (Some will be up for auction soon)

On the eve of the biggest sneaker release of the year somebody got a surprise text message from me. His name? Jess Sabater, winner of the #NTXII x Titan Air Jordan XI Concord giveaway. I asked where he was and he replied with the quickness then left work early to pick his pair up.

I had some time to burn so I joined Mackie and Bradley for dinner. Here's Mackie inspecting the goods.

Don't you just love how Titan eliminated the "hakot" system for the Air Jordan XI Concord release by implementing the chip system? I know some pairs will still be resold but at least we won't see one person walk out with a dozen pairs. Goes to show that the great people behind the store are not all about making money (that's the easy part when you have this shoe releasing before Christmas). Are you ready? #noneofthatfugazzishit

It almost didn't happen but we still pulled it off. Thank you all for coming! Last night was too ill.

Shout outs to DJ Skratchmark, Angelo Mendez, DJ Jena, Ant-1 and DJ Teaze. It can't get any better than that! #realrecognizereal


Also to the lovely hosts Mia Bayuga and Krystle Dizon. #hoymiayouandyourpunchlines

JC Taruc coming through with the colored photos. (below my selenium set)

Thank you Kyss Restaurant and Bar Lounge, SKYY Vodka, Nike, Adidas, Converse, Puma, Athletic Propulsion Labs, Titan, Urban Athletics, WIPCAPS, UNSCHLD, Illegitimate Kings, Pepper Lunch, Sole Movement and we Legendary!!! Now go out and show them some love back by keeping them in mind when doing your holiday shopping. No sense in supporting brands that don't appreciate the money that you give them. I'd also like to thank Bcal, Wendell, KC and Jon. I don't even need to explain why. They already know it.

About the prizes, check the validity date and please use them before they expire. You have no idea how difficult it was to get all these competing brands to support the same event. For the Nike vouchers, please do not expect to get the most expensive sneakers in the market. Most likely it will be Nike SB (edit - yup, Nike SB). Email me your names and sizes by Friday. For WIP, I was told by Ian that you should go to their website and enter the code found on the back of the sticker to claim your hat. If that doesn't work hit them up on facebook HERE.

Cool? Cool!

DEFINE MAGNIFICENT

Magnificent is when you get to see old heads and new ones come together and be reminded by a favorite DJ from your childhood why you fell in love with hip-hop. The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff blessed 7th HIGH with his good taste in music and untouchable turntable skills. Words cannot express how I felt. It was just surreal to me.

Midway through Jazzy Jeff's set I grabbed a white napkin and waved it in the air. Never in my life have I raised the white flag over something so great. It felt like it went on forever. By the time it was over I had forgiven Apl de Ap for performing on the same night Jazzy Jeff was on. It was THAT great.

Welcome to 7th HIGH

Visited Titan's HQ for the first time the other day to pick up some of the prizes for #NT's 12th Anniversary on Saturday. Got to chop it up with Raoul and Dennis for a bit before this caught my attention. I love how it was just laying down there like it was nothing.

THE RISING SUN

Before my first gangster letter (Gmail), my first viral (youtube), my first poke (facebook) and my first mention (twitter), there was this online forum called niketalk.com. 2 billion hits and 12 years later, it's still "The Ultimate Online Sneaker Community." The best part about it? The site continues donate to charitable institutions worldwide raising $20,000 for the Japan quake victims and $5,000 for famine-stricken East Africa. (A complete list of past donations can be found here)

Last year's anniversary celebration was fun but this year will be more special. So whether you're a member, lurker or an NBA player (season doesn't start til Christmas), let's all come together and celebrate this momentous occasion. It's not everyday that you get to see all these great brands support one event. Your event.

Merry Christmas! :)
