Throw in the chill pills for this season's footwear obsession du jour as adidas Originals Tubular X's latest design featuring the signature Primeknit upper collection is now available.
The newest Tubular X designs are rendered in the signature Primeknit upper and offered in three neutral colorways: Core Black, Midnight Navy, and Sesame.
The build features luxurious Primeknit fabrications in tonal fashion, creating a trio of colorways inspired by the style capitals of Milan, Paris and London.
All three are finished with leather and nubuck overlays in neutral black, sand and navy hues, conferring a sophisticated touch to the eye-catching midtop.
The mid-top runner is characterized for its patterned Primeknit upper that provides a sock-like fit, and features a two-toned, dual-density ridged EVA sole, and matching tonal laces.
Subtle adidas Trefoil branding is embroidered onto the heel counters.
The adidas Originals Tubular X Primeknit collection is now available for purchase through select adidas Originals retailers and online at shop.adidas.com.ph.
If there's a good day to be on Twitter, it is when UAAP CDC happens.
The University Athletic Association of the Philippines Cheerdance Competition (UAAP CDC) is an annual one-day event (since 1994) between eight different schools including Adamson University (AdU), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), De La Salle University (DLSU), Far Eastern University (FEU), ational University (NU), University of the East (UE), University of the Philippines (UP), and University of Santo Tomas (UST).
And today at Mall of Asia Arena, another set of winners were announced.
But losing doesn't have to be all bitter and sad. For as long as there's Twitter, we can always turn it around—at least for a few minutes of good laugh before we drag ourselves back to sorrows and pain.
Here are some of the most funniest and spot-ons tweets:
UST and UP be like: "NU, what's good?!" #UAAPCDC2015— Jian Genovana (@jiangenovana) October 3, 2015
Minsan, UP Pep Squad tayo kapag nasa isang relasyon. Napakataas lagi ng expectations kaya 'pag nabigo, mahirap tanggapin at mag-move on.— Professional Heckler (@HecklerForever) October 3, 2015

Baka dapat UE Pep Squad na lang tayo sa pag-ibig. Hindi mo man masuklian ang pagtingin n'ya, pwede mong sabihing, "Hindi kita pinaasa."— Professional Heckler (@HecklerForever) October 3, 2015
Siyempre, makakatulong kung UST Salinggawi ka when it comes to love. Masaktan ka man nang todo, pray ka lang, mawawala rin ang sakit.— Professional Heckler (@HecklerForever) October 3, 2015

Minsan DLSU AnimoSquad ka sa love. Ipagpalit man sa iba, taas-noo pa rin dahil alam mong mas maganda at mas mayaman ka kesa ipinalit sa 'yo.— Professional Heckler (@HecklerForever) October 3, 2015

You know what they say, you wouldn't know what you missed until you find yourself in a "should-woulda-coulda, drowning-myself-in-sorrow, I-should-have-bought-tickets-and-showed-up" situation.
After a few Instagram video uploads, my phone almost crashed with a lot of messenger pop-ups and SMS' from my friends who didn't made it. Well, I didn't wanna say 'I told you so' but as I predicted, it turned out really well—effin' amazing, actually. I did not have enough energy (and phone battery) to reply to all of it so let me dedicate this post to all of you, my dear friends. But please know that I wrote this with love. LOL
So here's the five things you missed that went down at Neverland Manila presents Zedd True Colors Tour:
1) Talented with a big heart!
Last Saturday, August 8, Manila was given the fourth chance to catch the world-famed Zedd at the Mall of Asia Arena.
During the press conference, the Grammy award-winning phenom mentioned "I hope everybody here knows how much I love the Philippines. I’ve been coming back for a reason. I’ve always been seeing a lot of passion, a lot of support, a lot of love, and a lot of attention to details."
"I will always be coming back as long as people comes to the shows and this is one of the biggest show I've ever played. I’m always excited to be here. When people ask me in interviews where I love to play I will always mention the Philippines because it has a really special place in my heart for sure," he added.Moments before the show started, Zedd announced online offering 500 additional tickets which could be obtained for free in exchange for contributions to his "Happiness In A Bag Project"—despite the show being sold out.
LISTEN UP, MANILA! I’m giving away 500 tix for tonight in exchange for an EDUCATIONAL PACK or RELIEF PACK. See below: pic.twitter.com/LSh9Y2dWgT— Zedd (@Zedd) August 8, 2015
This has been an ongoing altruistic efforts since 2013 by a man who sets a compassionate precedent for all EDM performers.
2) Music scene's next big thing: Callum David and Haywyre
Keeping the crowd's excitement burning, Australian-born DJ Callum David—one of Manila's hottest DJs did well pumping up groovy beats and floor-filling music opening the show.
Followed by Haywyre—who is tagged as electronic music's newest Boy Wonder. He tweaks tunes on his piano, a creative improvisation, honed the beats ad mixed with progressive-unique compositions. Definitely a breath of fresh air.
"It's easiest to play music on the computer but when I write or do music on the piano or an instrument, it becomes more organic and very natural," Haywyre answered when asked about his music during the press briefing.
3) Everyone went crazy-sky-rocket with Zedd
The Grammy award-winner may have gone back in Manila for the fourth time but that didn't stop him from delivering pumping beats with his famous hits, old and new.
Even if Zedd's music has been repeatedly played countless times at clubs and in every events, it never goes out of style... every beat, drop after drop while the crowd cheered and sung their lungs out inside the arena.
Oh, did I mention everyone knows the lyrics of Zedd's hits by heart? Here, WATCH!
(Please excuse my shaky hands, I was having fun too you know. LOL)
Yup, it never gets old!
5) Best. Crowd. Ever.
The international DJ and producer has really captured so many hearts in the Philippines, both young and young at heart. And I think Manila, Philippines has captured Zedd's heart too!
As my friend and fellow EDM enthusiast, Jason Tomas would put it, "...after four years of coming back in Manila, Zedd still has it and is really getting ahead of the race and real fast." I couldn't agree more!
To be completely honest, I wasn't one of Zedd's biggest fan...
until #NeverlandManila2015ZeddTCT happened.
Yes, my main man Zedd. You've got one heart here melted, you becoming a piece of me I wish I didn't need, chasing relentlessly... still fight and I don't know why? LOL
Well, you know the lyrics.
But seriously, I hope you come see us again.
With lots of love, The Manila Urbanite and everyone in the Philippines!
Congratulations, Neverland Manila! You guys really know how to throw the best events.

Offered in monochromatic black and white colorways, the artsy kicks allow for countless opportunities to mix n’ match.
