* 2012 Filoil Flying V Hanes Cup - DLSU vs SSC-R

Last game for the day between the DLSU Green Archers against the San Sebastian Stags. It was a close and physical game from the start and things get nasty when SSC-R ace player Calvin Abueva gaved Joshua Webb an elbow in the mouth and Webb retaliates giving them both a Technical Foul. First half ends 42-43 with a Calvin Abueva buzzer beater jump shot.

Second half started and still a close game, Jeron Teng played well with LA Revilla and Almond Vosotros leading the archers and middle of the 4th quarter Calvin Abueva was thrown out for his second technical foul giving Jeron Teng an elbow in the face. Without Calvin Abueva SSC-R had a hard time with the Archers until the end of the game. Archers won 84-70 and moving to the semi finals against the unbeated San Beda Red Lions

* 2012 Filoil Flying V Hanes Cup - FEU vs ADMU

After a long break for sports photography I need to warm up and prepare for the incoming UAAP 75th season this July. I wanted to take photos of the FilOil Flying V games way back but I don't have access before and now I got my access and I can take photos of the games.

I was with my girlfriend and I wasn't able to take a lot of photos of the second game between NU Bulldogs and UST Tigers where NU won. Third game is betweek defending champion the Ateneo Blue Eagles against the FEU Tammaraws. FEU has new players now and they have two tall African- American players and same line up with ADMU without Kirk Long but Ryan Buenafe is back with Kiefer Ravena, Greg Slaughter, Nico Salva and more.

It was a close game but Bringas was thrown out of the game because of thrash talking and ADMU was shooting well outside. ADMU defeated FEU and advanced to the final four against Bobby Ray Parks and the NU Bulldogs.

* Nike: Kobe VI - Imperial Purple

It's almost 3 years since I bought a Basketball kicks (Nike Hyperize AP) and now I've finally decided to get a new one, I wanted to buy the latest Kobe Bryant shoes (Kobe VII) but the colorway that I wanted is already out of stock and prize is a little bit expensive and I'm still saving money for a new DSLR. Me and my girlfriend went to Nike Paseo de Sta. Rosa and I've decided to buy a Kobe VI shoes. Limited size for the Blue Camo colorway so I just picked the Imperial Purple colorway. Got it from 6,9999 to 4,500. 

My review with this kicks? I can say it's very comfortable even though it's my first time to use wear low basketball kicks which I thought dangerous for my ankle. It's very light just like my Nike Hyperize AP .
