Are you freaking fucking kidding me?

This is the reason why I hate to share my collection with fellow Malaysians!

I received a few sms(es) and a lot of calls from the peeps at Streething telling me that a certain dude openly questioned whether I have the complete Air Jordan Thunder and Lighting Pack. Apparently, they told me that this dude said he only saw me post the Lighting Pack and I was just trying to dupe the peeps of Streething into believing that I have both pairs!

What the fuck? Is he fucking kiddin' me? It's been 5 months since the pack was released and he's still questioning whether I have the complete set. Fucking idiot!

Before I go on, here’s a little info on this pack: The Thunder and Lighting pack was a Limited Edition pack and was inspired by Michael Jordan’s motorcycle race team. It comprised of two pairs of the Air Jordan IV's.

The Thunder Pack included the LE black AJ4 and Rare Air Jacket and was priced at USD500, while The Lighting Pack was made up of the LE Yellow AJ4 and Rare Air Tee and was priced at $250. They were an on-line release only in the US and you had to be a member of Team Jordan to even have the chance to cop them as they were limited to 250 and 500 pairs respectively.



Anyways, back to the topic of this entry. As I was saying, I was bombarded with sms(es) and calls asking me to show this loser that I indeed have the complete set. But the first thing that came into my mind was, "should I even bother?"

I agree with his contention that I only posted the Lighting pack in the forum. But is he correct in saying that I only have half of the total pack? HELL NO! For the record I DO have both pairs.

Can I prove it? Of course I can!

Should I prove it then? Is it worth it?

Hmmm...

You see, this is why I remain civil but not close to majority of the peeps at ST, specially the 'older dudes'. I will always be portrayed negatively irrespective of what I do. If I post and show them everything I get every month, I am lansi; and if I don't, they'll say that I actually have nothing and I'm just pretending to have whatever it is that I say I have!

Are they fucking kidding me?

I didn't get into the sneaker game to show off; I am in the game because I truly have the passion for shoes, especially Air Jordan's. In fact, I can say I have been in the game longer than most of these peeps but the point of being a sneaker collector is to enjoy your passion. Of course, I do share my collection with a lot of shoe-crazy peeps like me, only they are based overseas and not here.

My fellow Filipinos are one group that I love to share with. They're as crazy as I am but the beauty about them - that Malaysians really lack - is that there are no jealousies amongst us. There are always those who have more pairs than the others but you would never find even the slightest hint of envy.

Sadly, the same could not be said about the Malaysian sneaker community. Don't get me wrong, the mods and majority are really nice and genuine but there are lots of haters as well; mostly the older collectors as well as those resellers who take advantage of the popularity of this culture.

And somehow or rather, these mother fuckers always zero in on me! Is it because I have a different skin color from most of you guys? Is it because I'm not the type who "friend-friend" and "kow-tow" easily? Or is it because you can only dream to have what I have in my collection?

Get a life, you fucking idiots!

P.S.

I may grant the requests of those who contacted me and will post both pairs. Again, I may… Or may not!

P.P.S.

And if I do, I need to find my Small Baby’s camera first though

Hey Ivan, Thanks for the bid and linkup:)

I gotta admit what you sayin here is all true. I feel you bro. Thats why I like your friendship cos' ur one real ass mofo.

Yeah sum of these peeps are like that. I guess its a m'sian thing. Envy and jealously cos' of kiasuness and losing of face. Not only in the sneaker game but also the hip hop game. thats why theres so much hate out there in any sub cultures in this country. Same way i keep it civil but not too close with the peeps in my game your attitude in doing the same in the local sneaker game will pay off.

Fuck the haters. Now, before them mofuckers think that i'm dick ridin' you, I'm just keepin' it real . Take care bro and hope to catch up soon. Probably see ur Evisu wrapped ass at Laundry i bet:)Holla.

I agree with you that this crab mentality extends to the local hip-hop game. It's really sad but that's how it is played here. Too much hatred!

I admire you for what you're doing man and while I may not be able to contribute in a bigger way just as yet, I'm confident somewhere down the line, I'll work with you :) In the meantime, I'll try to plug your album as much as I can...

And speaking of evisu's and laundry, I may pop by one of these days :)

Keep it real bro and I take my hats off to you..

Peace!
