Wiki Takes the City: MNL

I was doing a rundown on some neglected feeds on my Google reader, when I came across this one. I super hate that I can’t come because I have Saturday classes (which always suck like I had Sunday classes earlier today), and that I am graduating already, and that I can’t risk losing my candidacy for latin honors. So here, to those who wants to take Manila on a whole new level:
