Last Sunday, we went to the Ayala Museum for International Museum Day (May 20). The museum features modern works - after some general waffling we settled on a general theme of 'art'.

I think almost every country has a Little Tokyo. In the Philippines, one such place is in Makati. Kat suggested that we have dinner at a popular restaurant called Kikufuji, and everyone jumped at the chance to do a Wa themed meet!
