The bags have been unpacked and the memories are spilling out in the form of stories and day dreams. We’ve gotten a ton of questions about the highs and the lows, the best of the best and the worst of the best. As we reflect on our four months in Asia, we came up with a list highlighting […]Read more "Superlatives"

We found ourselves on a very rainy Tuesday, drunk in the depths of fluorescent lit and vice fueled Shinjuku district of Tokyo. We were coming off the high of a spectacular show at Robot Restaurant, recommended by none other than Sir Tony himself. The 200 microbars of Golden Gai were as enigmatic as they were […]Read more "Ghetto Suntory"
Welcome to the Shinsaibashi-Namba district of Osaka. Some could call it the Williamsburg of Japan. On these streets, the line between progressive style and fashion suicide has been erased. It’s home to the best people watching in all of Asia. Some are Swaggy and some are giving meaning to the term “Trashionista”. We took some snapshots of the style (and non-style) that […]Read more "Swaggy P. Watanabe"

We challenged ourselves to shoot only black and white photos in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the capital of Vietnam. […]Read more "HCMC B/W"

I used the Heineken dunk as one of the original designs that really inspired me to get into the “sneaker head” thing. The Heiny’s were my “holy grail” […]Read more "The Heinekens"
So let’s go back to the scene in the van, the place where we met some forever friends through total serendipity. Which then led to meeting more friends, marking El Nido, Philippines as one of the most memorable destinations of our trip so far. Community observation: Bonds are strengthened and communities are developed when people are in […]Read more "Communities: Travelers (Part II)"
You’re smashed in an industrial van, four rows deep, with two more people in the vehicle than there are seats. The driver is nearing 120 kilometers/hour and prefers to drive on the wrong side of the road at every sharp turn that occurs every 200 meters or so. It’s a method of maintaining his high […]Read more "Communities: Travelers (Part I)"
