The name of this second-hand bookstore is a play on words: it comes from "ukay-ukay" (which loosely means "rummage sale" in Filipino). It's quite an apt moniker -- the titles are loosely organized, but you'll really need to dig around for the perfect find. In the end, it's totally worth it: you just might find a pulp classic, cult title, or discarded best-seller -- sometimes for even PHP50 (approximately US$1) or less. The store also hosts poetry readings and even the odd intimate gig.
