In what can be considered a tennis sneakerhead dream come true, Nike brought together two iconic shoe designs represented by two of the greatest athletes in their respective fields.

Roger Federer and Michael Jordan, legends of the tennis and basketball courts respectively, introduced the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 just in time for the start of the 2014 US Open.

I just have to rave about the Crab Rice and the Laing Supreme here at The Red Crab.

The Crab Rice (P295) is a lot for two but more than the generous serving, I loved how it wasn't greasy in any way and the taste isn't too overpowering. It's such a good combination with the Laing Supreme and the Lechon Kawali we ordered.

The Laing Supreme (P295), which as you can see in the photo is full to the brim, is as authentic-tasting as it gets. I like my laing mildly-spicy and thick and this one is both.

Surprisingly, the most generic is the Lechon Kawali (P350). Continue reading

Deuter, a brand that has been pioneering premium outdoor equipment since its founding in 1898, has come a long way from providing the Bavarian Royal Mail with mailbags and post sacks to being used in mountaineering expeditions.

In 1938, German mountain climber Anderl Heckmair brought along a Deuter backpack when he led the first successful ascent of the North Face of the Eiger. Fifteen years later, Deuter was with Austrian mountaineer Hermann Buhl and his crew when they conquered Nanga Parbat in Pakistan, the ninth highest mountain in the world.

I first came across Deuter when I saw it at Chris Sports in Glorietta a couple of years ago. It caught my eyes because of the close similarity to my name. At the time, it was easy to recognize that the bags are made for the outdoors but what impressed me was its lightness.

Deuter bags use light yet very durable materials. I won't get into the specifics but if you're looking to get yourself one, better read up here so you'll know exactly what you need:

During Deuter's grand opening of its concept store at the SM Maill of Asia, I got to see a wide variety of bags, small and large, even wash bags and security wallets.

And then there are some other items available in-store for your complete outdoor needs.

One thing, however, that was of particular interest to me was the Kid Comfort II model that I got to try out.

It uses Ripstop 210/Ballistec material and weights just 2950g. I'll write more about this bag in a separate post, including its AirComfort System that reduces perspiration by 25 percent and straps that distribute the weight evenly.

There are others during the launch who were just as impressed as I was with Deuter bags.

So go check out the Deuter concept store at the 2nd level of SM Mall of Asia to see just how unique and impressive their bags are.

It took a visit to Smokey Mountain in Tondo for Andrea Bosca to come to the realization that wealth did not necessarily equate to happiness.
“They are not linked!” Bosca said as if still in disbelief even after directing the short film “A Tutto Tondo,” about the friendship of an Italian lawyer and a Filipino family in Rome.

Bosca, who has declared his love for the Philippines, went to Smokey Mountain a couple of years ago to shoot a documentary. But what he received there was more than just the renowned hospitality of the Filipinos. He left the place filled with the desire to show to the rest of the world how Filipinos thrived daily amid poverty and suffering, with the smile on their faces intact.
“I was there for one afternoon and it affected me greatly,” Bosca said. “I wanted to show through the film that anyone can do anything when they have the support and love of their family or their community.”
