(SPOT.ph) Unless you’ve been living under a rock—or stuck inside an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre—you’ve probably heard that the highly anticipated Friends reunion is finally premiering on May 27. And yes, you can legally stream it right here in the Philippines. The HBO special marks the first time since the ’90s classic’s final episode that the entire cast—namely Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer—are coming together as a group and revisiting the show that turned them into superstars. Despite the fact that the show first premiered in 1994 and ended a decade later in 2004, the hype hasn’t died down in the least.

While the millennials who consumed the show weekly in the '90s and aughts have all grown up by now, the show has remained a powerful presence in pop culture with its many references still circulating on social media and constantly bringing in new fans. If your love for Friends has been resurrected upon learning about the reunion’s upcoming release, we know just how to satisfy your renewed obsession. Below, we list 10 cool Friends-themed finds you can shop in Manila right now.

We’ll never get sick of seeing the famous Friends logo (or more accurately, F.R.I.E.N.D.S logo) printed, stitched, and painted onto anything and everything, so this H&M sweater is a welcome shopping find. Underneath the logo, you’ll see the word "noun" printed on the piece, mimicking a dictionary entry. Instead of listing those bland Merriam-Webster definitions, the printed design describes that word as "six friends living in the heart of New York City, helping each other navigate life’s ups and downs and learning what it really means to be a friend." And let’s face it Friends fans, that’s probably what really comes to mind when you hear that F-word.

Available online; see a list of H&M stores.
