    There are two AICAs in Metro Manila. One being in Pasig/Cebu, Academy for International Culinary Arts; the other one stands for Asian Institute of Culinary Arts. The two schools aren’t affiliated. You got the addresses right for the AICA Pasig yet the uniforms worn above are from the other school. Please get your facts straight.
