Gotta love it when some sneaker releases on my "Top 10 all time" fly under the radar of hypebeasts and culture vultures. The Nike x Olivia Kim Air Mowabb was my easiest and only score from Nike Philippines' webstore this past week. Most releases on its "SNKRS Launch Calendar" are impossible to get. I should know. Minus these beauties, I am ZERO out of SIX so far the last several days striking out on a few Air Jordan 1 restock and the CLOT Air Force 1.

Anywho, I am more than delighted at how these came out. Definitely one of the better releases this year. You can still pick up a pair HERE. Just don't forget to go 1.5 sizes up since these come in womens sizing.

Enjoy the photos!

12 years. This dude really went from stalking an Asian dude wearing Huarache Lights in San Francisco in 2007 (his version of the story, not mine), to working on his first business plan (Tumbo), to being one of the few cool peeps at Nike HQ (most of them are jerks), to becoming a Grandmaster Wizard of Coffee (@DeadstockCoffee), to kicking it with the same Asian dude in 2019, LOL. Super proud of my dude @eeeweezie and what he's accomplished since the first time we met. The best thing about him? He remained the same great person throughout. Welcome to SB Revival at OG ARCHIVED PHILIPPINES!

I was sent a surprise package from NikeTalk's Methodical Management a few months ago with this very limited hat inside. It traveled from CA, to MD, to WA, back to CA and finally the Philippines. I can't wait to wear it on December 10, 2019 to celebrate NT's 20th anniversary!

Another year older, none the wiser. Just thankful that I got to spend my birthday solo dolo away from all the bullshit in the city. I am seriously considering of just moving here and live out the rest of my life in solitude. Cool weather surrounded by trees and great views with really good local food spots to boot. Been sold!

Grabbed dinner with my youngest son at Frankie's New York Buffalo Wings UP Town Center before watching Spider-Man. I asked him what he wanted for dinner and he said wings. Perfect because I can never say no to chicken wings.

So I made my way to Titan BGC all the way from Quezon City to join the e-raffle for the Nike Adapt BB Mag "BTTF." I figured since I can't afford the real deal I might as well just try my luck and go for the cheaper version of the original.

Been slowing down on my Lazada purchases lately but when I saw THIS pet carrier for less than a thousand pesos shipped, I knew I just had to have it for my super anti-social cat. It's been years since we moved and he hasn't really made it outside the house other than his own personal space in the garden. Now I get to take him with me and Ash whenever we go out for a walk!

Is it only me or Father's Day is not as celebrated in the Philippines as Mother's Day? Is it because of all the miserable single mothers out there? Maybe.

Always a pleasure showing people around places I enjoy the most. I hope you both had fun @c_cristi_m! Would have been hilarious if we caught a round of midget boxing but dang they wanted a lot of $$$ for us to referee a match. I would have done it too if only they offered half off. 😂 Safe flight back to The Bay and forever stay hyphy! ⁣

Off-topic but how do you wear guayabera shirts? I received one as a gift from my uncle and had no idea what to wear with it.

No, this was not photoshopped. My visiting uncle from The Bay actually got most of the Munsayacs remaining in Manila together for a dinner hosted by him. If you ignored my invitation then arranged your own dinner (with your siblings and their kids) with tito, then LOL you can go fuck yourself. I'm sick and tired of your bullshit anyway.

It's been a while since I did something for my dad for his birthday and since I got a strong feeling that I won't be around that much longer, I took my family to the best buffet under 1,000 pesos, minutes from away from the house.

For a non-ramen spot, Caution Hot 警告辣 Spicy Noodle House can still hold its own in a city peppered with good ramen joints. Through the last several years, this has been the only noodle soup place I think of going to whenever it rains non-stop. The best part about it? The QC branch is open until 3 am! (May 15-July 15)

Sometimes it takes a lifetime to understand someone close to us and most of the time it's a struggle going through the entire process. I'm just thankful that I get to go through every good thing (along with the bad) with people who I love the most, regardless of the hardships we face.

I got a call and was surprised to be invited by Nikko Ramos of Titan to attend the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 party at Titan 2 Parkade. Since I haven't been to a Nike/Jordan event in over a year, I figured I might as well go just for the hell of it. It's always good times anyway to see old faces and meet new ones.

An old friend from high school sent this over to our table after I told her Mark we Legendary and I were at one of her and her partner's restaurants. I am never the one to go after free stuff but I usually don't turn it down either. This was a perfect treat to end a delectable meal. Cyma never disappoints!

Thank you Mark for dinner! Thank you Chinky for the dessert!

I'm about to start a petition for hospitals to have round-the-clock food options for people watching over patients confined. It's so damn hard to find anything decent to eat once food stalls in the building close for the night! Do they really want us to get sick from 7-11 "meals?"
