Random Thoughts / The Collective

Went to The Collective with team FFT: Mike, Karl and Thysz. It was supposed to be a ToyCon then 20/20 exhibit opening night for me but lady luck, unfortunately, was not on my side. When I left, it started raining cats and dogs and polar bears. Then on our way to The Collective, the taximan decided to take the gang out for a spin around Makati (read=lost). But all is well that ends well. I got to see The Collective finally. And of course, it was nice seeing the FFT peeps again hehe.

After a few hi's and hello's (and photo ops), we checked out some of the stores and stuff around the Collective. FYI this place used to be a warehouse.

First was Black Book:

It was a fun night. Will def go back and visit the Collective again. But next time i'll bring a map—it is your friend especially in venturing out in to the unknown haha. Also, I will visit during the day nalang cause I don't want to spend 200 bucks again for nothing...haha...
