At work with adidas NEO Label sneakers + BNY jacket


Here's my day in field work, Its my first time to do be in this porma, I call it the Justin Bieber x Daniel Padilla look hahahaha.  Thanks to Gus* Modern Furniture in Greenbelt Residences for this venue

my first appearance wearing that BNY Racing jacket in SM Store-SM MOA.
With a little style with the pair of adidas NEO Label, I think I'll be like this for a month. lol

adidas NEO Label sneakers kickstart new lifestyle and fashion

adidas neo
Check out my new adidas NEO Label shoes, I got it from adidas via mail few weeks ago and thanks to their PR for giving out some shoes to test drive and try if this will change my taste for fashion and style. The adidas NEO Label is here to stay and its been present years ago as the label to cater adidas' shoes and outfit for the youth who loves stylish fashion and trend makers.

I know that almost all kinds of shoe brands jump into the side of providing fashionable design for their shoe line. adidas is known for sports shoes like tennis, soccer, basketball, boxing, wrestling and running. But as time goes by, people knows how to mix and match, and use a pair of shoes to make their fashion statement go into the edge. adidas NEO Label speaks for it and late of 2012, they announced to get the most famous celeb as their global style icon.

adidas neo
1st it was Justin Bieber, as one of their 1st global style icon. adidas made an exclusive custom gold adidas NEO label for Justin Bieber, and then they launched a global contest to find that gold shoes online.

adidas neo
After Justin, they got his former partner, Selena Gomez as their 2nd global style icon and also shoe designer for the adidas NEO Label series. They also launched a global styling contest and prize is to meet Selena in person (details here)

adidas is going full blast as they got now the former couple Justin and Selena as the power to fire up adidas to the youth. I'm sure that adidas NEO Label will fit to any kind of style, I haven't tried wearing white shoes in my style, but I'm interested to see change in myself. Yeah, I need a make over!
adidas neo
adidas NEO Label are not ordinary shoes, but they are sneakers! I love sneakers! they are soft and comfy to carry my heavy feet anywhere.

adidas neo
I see that they have lots of designs already, I like the colored shoes and its matching colored adidas stripes.
After trying the white adidas NEO Label white sneakers. I went to their adidas concept store in SM Mall of Asia, I started to look for the NEO Label but the concept store doesn't carry the line yet, the store attendant told me that I should try the Sports Central store for the NEO Label. I went there afterwards, but I didn't saw the NEO Label line, maybe that the new line will be available here on Feb 2013, since this is just a new line for the Philippines and it was just introduced last December 2012 if my timeline is correct.

adidas neo
Here's a close up look on the design of adidas NEO Label

adidas neo
The thing that I like about the adidas NEO label are the soft cushion inside the sneakers, I have tried other sneaker brands and some of them have flat insoles and doesn't have a soft cushion. I was hesitant to try the sneakers because my feet might not get the right feel of it when its new.

adidas neo
But the design and look is very sleak. Its a weather proof like design that can cover your feet in different kind of weather condition. I'm glad that its all closed and not a fabric that covers the shoes. No more worries if ever it rains.

adidas neo
Most impressive is the soles, check out this bee hive design, I'm not sure what it can do,  hope there's a anti slippery tech.

here's my view wearing my new adidas NEO Label sneakers

after shopping

adidas neo
I'm tired...

adidas neo
few minutes..I'm home

I like the sneakers and I thought at first that my feet will cry in pain after stretching the body of the sneakers during its 1st sue, but I'm glad that the sneakers expanded quickly and it absorbs the size of my feet after some hours. I tested the soles in different floor condition and it still great, even under the rain, I didn't felt any rain water entering the sneakers. Cool design! and that's what I'm looking for.

SRP: I'll post the price soon!

adidas neo
adidas NEO Label is available in selected SM Department Stores, other malls, Toby’s, Planet Sports and other sports stores nationwide. 

Goodbye to pet cat and fish


1st....B1 died 3 years ago and then few weeks ago B2 died...because the water tank's table is broken and B2 was placed in the pond along with the kois. B2 didn't survived, I told them to place B2 back in the tank when I saw the fish gasping for air, I went out of town when I see B2 for the last time. B2 stayed with us for 8 years.

and next...I discovered that our pet Mocha is already gone, she died of her cancer thing in the head, the vet told us that its hard to treat that bump that grows on her nose. It became bigger and then it stop growing. I was informed that Mocha died last week. Shucks.. I thought that she's still okay, I even bought new cat food for her.

Our pets is now in the pet heavens, I wish that they are happy there.

Jan 22 – IMAX Corporation and Marvel Entertainment, a division of The Walt Disney Company today announced that “Marvel's Iron Man 3,” the latest installment of the film franchise that has grossed more than $1.2 billion at the global box office, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® 3D format and released to IMAX® theatres internationally, including the Philippines starting April 25 and in the U.S. on May 3.

“Marvel's Iron Man 3” marks the fourth Marvel Entertainment film to be presented in IMAX theatres, following the releases of “Iron Man 2” in 2010, “Thor” in 2011 and “Marvel's The Avengers” in 2012 – which all delivered record breaking performances in IMAX theatres.

"Marvel and IMAX are a perfect one-two punch and the Iron Man franchise has become a global phenomenon that resonates with fans around the world," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We look forward to moviegoers experiencing this highly-anticipated next installment of Tony Stark's latest adventures in IMAX 3D."

"With `Iron Man 3' building on the events of `Marvel's The Avengers,' audiences are in for yet another incredible moviegoing experience from Marvel Studios," said Dave Hollis, Executive Vice President of Motion Picture Distribution for The Walt Disney Studios. "We're thrilled to be able to offer that to fans in the larger-than-life action of IMAX 3D."

The IMAX 3D release of “Marvel's Iron Man 3” will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie. You can learn more about “Marvel's Iron Man 3” by visiting Marvel's official site at

“Marvel's Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Marvel's Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel's iconic super hero Iron Man, who first appeared in the pages of "TALES OF SUSPENSE #39" in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with "THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1" in May of 1968.
