‘Para sa Kadakilaan’

Lucky to be invited to the walkthrough of @kingjames’ Soldier XII; even luckier to be able to take the latest edition of “Agimat” for a spin. Fortunate, too, to have shared the court with two-time Asia’s best PG Jayson Castro and media friends.

Nike’s second sneaker to get the full #Agimat treatment dropped today at select Nike and Titan stores. It retails for P6,745. The Soldier XII also comes in five other colorways.
Thank you, #NikePH @nikephilippinesofficial!

@paulzamar is a basketball player, but he doesn’t look the part. Neither does he look like someone who torched a team in Thailand by 52 points. In Bangkok, he’s a star—proven by this photograph taken Dec. 8, 2017, where young Thai cagers lined up to take a snapshot with him. For Mono Vampire, he’s an import, carrying the burden of not only performing but also leading his team to victories. He’s that and more. But if you ask him, he’d rather go back and play at home.
I wrote about the soft-spoken, God-fearing Paul with “driving" as a launchpad for my story. For weeks, I could barely put together a piece that holds up and stays faithful to the theme. For weeks, it felt bland. Until I decided to talk more to his father Boycie. Just before New Year’s Eve, the older Zamar went on to add one more line to unknowingly complete my motif. Talk about a fitting ending to the story and to the year.

Lucky to have met and become friends with such down-to-earth people. Even luckier to be able to tell their story (link on my bio). For those who believe that "home-cooked" writing is still the shit, for those who have made countless fluff pieces and made amends by penning heartfelt ones, for those who told me that they enjoy reading my attempts at features, for those who are struggling like me, for those still looking for their corner in the sky… this one’s for you. You are not alone.

To writing better stories. And to writing stories better.

May you all have a great 2018.

To say 2017 was shitty is a terrible understatement. Lost some. Won some. I couldn’t have made a turnaround without these guys. Missed home on Christmas Day. On Jan. 1, 2018, home came for me.
I love you. Always, all ways.
