Adidas Ultra Boost

Boost Boost Boost! Adidas hit'd me up with the Boost and I ate it up. Adidas is starting to make a dent in my sneaker closet. Will the trend continue? or will the Jumpman prevail?

By the way, these were the most comfiest sneakers I have ever worn. In my opinion, better than the Nike Roshes and Asics Gel Lyte 3/5

Adidas Consortium x Pharrell x BBC Stan Smith "Pony Hair"

Back in the day when BBC released sneakers, it was highly sought after. I thought they were incredible during the peak of the all-over-print phenomenon. The tin box that the sneakers came in was genius. It was unique and limited. The key to my addiction and styling taste. The purchasing price for the sneakers was not outrageous, but it was for reselling. I didn't have plug back then. I didn't have a proxy back then. I didn't know I could've shipped it to Blaine and have it pick it up personally. Surprisingly, when Pharrell joined Adidas, he dropped the classic. This Adidas Consortium x Pharrell x BBC Stan Smith "Pony Hair" was an instant purchase. I had to get both colourways. :)

Bob's Submarine Sandwiches

I was craving a burger on this particular day; A gourmet burger to be exact. Maria suggested the typical options such as A&W, Dairy Queen, McDonald's, etc., but I wanted to try something new. After looking online for a bit, I found a place close by; Bob's Submarine Sandwiches. This place was a hidden gem tucked away for the plain view of the mall. When we entered the dive, I was surprised at the pricing, it was so cheap. I don't think they raised the prices in decades. We ordered the Special Burger, Poutine, and Super Sub. The Special Burger was a bacon cheeseburger, and it was alright, nothing special. The Poutine was the same, nothing spectacular. However, the Super Sub stood out to me. It had double portions of steak, mushrooms, salami and capicoollo. The Super Sub was quite a sub; there was so much awesomeness. It was filled with meat upon meat upon meat. Each mouthful was not a letdown. I would recommend trying the Super Sub. It was enough to suppress my burgers craving and left satisfied for the night. I came here for the burger, but the sub won me over.

Verdict: Cheaps eats!!! Coming back for $3 breakfast and another Super Sub =)

Nike Air Trainer Cruz "Haystack"

The Nike Air Trainer Cruz appears to look like a hybrid mix of the Nike Air Trainer, Yeezys and Bo Jackson. Unfortunately, they have been donned as "The Poor Man's Yeezy". I liked this fresh look regardless of it having any inspirations from the Yeezys (which it did). Victor Cruz made a classic shoe look more high end. I think I'll have to complete this set; too bad the all red colourway was scraped from the release.

You might find this lame, but I never have liked any of the Kanye's released footwear. The only one I would get, if I ever find the money, would be the collaboration he did with LV.

Hy's Steakhouse and Cocktail Bar

Nom Nom time!!! I wanted to try Hy's Steakhouse and Cocktail Bar for some time. It was the next steakhouse I wanted to try on my list. I never knew where Hy's Steakhouse and Cocktail Bar was located until I looked it up. I was ashamed of myself when I found out. It was literally across the street from where I worked. *sigh* I went there for lunch, and like any other steakhouses, this was fancy. I felt underdressed for the occasion. The decor reminded me of an old-fashioned mansion with a twist of being modern, definitely classy. The restaurant consisted of a lot of wooden texture which felt like a study room (or cigar room). It also felt like a movie scene that had two chairs in front of a fireplace, wine glasses on a side table between the two chairs, a sculpture of some sort on top of the fireplace and books / wooden accents wrapping around the room. It was very comfy. The service was quick and friendly. I ordered the Cheese Toast and 8oz Petit Filet Mignon with mash potatoes. The Cheese Toast was fancy; this wasn't any everyday cheese toast. The cheese was very rich and gooey. It was very addicting. I had to stop myself so that I wouldn't spoil my appetite. The steak itself was pretty decent. It was soft, not too chewy and perfectly cooked. What I liked about it the most was that it didn't have that charred or flamed taste to it. It was straight to the point, beef, salt, and pepper. In my opinion, this was better than Gotham's Steakhouse and Black and Blue. If I had extra cash in my pocket, I would choose this over The Keg.

Verdict: I'm coming back for Happy Hour and the newly renovated bar =) Also, with whatever leftover monies I have, I’ll order a steak.

Eating until I get cankles...

Jordan 8 "Aqua"

I missed the original release and the re-release, but I'm glad that I was able to get the Jordan 8 "Aqua" the third time around. I was surprised that this pair didn't sell out instantly. There was many talks about it and in the end, no one wanted it. Was it because of the other Jordan 8s previously released this year or up and coming? Was it because of the holiday being around the corner? Was it because it was a general release? Was it because there were something else being released that were better. Or maybe it was because no one cares unless it's limited, hyped or co-signed. Whatever the case was, I'm happy that I was able to obtain my pair of the Jordan 8 "Aqua".

Adidas x Bape x Undefeated Superstar 80v Part 2

Another one! Or should I say two. After a scramble trying to get the first two pairs several months ago, Undefeated did the right thing and offered first dibs to people who had their orders cancelled. I was one of them. I ordered one of each colourway and then received an email informing me that my order got cancelled a week later. This time around, a pre-release link was sent for purchase. Again, I grabbed one of each colourway. I think the first release were better in my opinion. I found the first release more subtle, where the second release were loud and bold. None the less, I'm a sucker for these kinds of things. At least, my set is complete.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back!!!

I must say that 2015 has been a crazy year thus far, getting married and purchasing my first property in the same year ain't an easy feat. I don't believe the remainder of 2015 will slow down anytime soon. I'm starting to regain some free time, and I'm hoping by early 2016 I can regularly post on this blog again. I thought long and hard about continuing with this or not, and a part of me doesn't want to give it up. It did at times feel like a chore; I didn't want the blog to become stale. On the other hand, the blog gave me the freedom to post whatever I wanted and whenever I wanted. This blog doesn't generate any revenue, so I'm not tied to strict timelines. The biggest problem with this blog was figuring who my audience was and who was I catering it to; I still don't know. The blog started out as a hobby to document everything and or most things I did, almost like a diary. There were two reasons why I created this blog. First, I wanted to improve my writing skills. Second, I wanted to out do myself for the next year. I would revisit all the post I made that year and try to make improvements the following year. The improvement can be anything, like, take more trips (local or abroad), try different cuisines, etc. What turned out happening, I did a lot of weekend wrap up, which I discontinued because I thought it felt too personal to share on the web. Then it turned into a restaurant review, trip summary and my picks ups (clothes, toys, shoes (mostly)). Where is it heading now? I really don't know. There's only one way to find out… keep on posting =)
