ELECTRIC PUNANNY Asia Tour: #4 Manila

Fourth stop on the tour was Manila, Philippines! Another first time for both me and MeLo-X, we had no idea what to expect. Turns out, Manila TURNS UP. We only had 24 hours in the city, and we certainly made the most of it. Not to mention, it was Halloween night… Read on!

Never gets old…





First order of business, vintage shopping! Angelo and Eric (Black Market) took us to what is considered the “Williamsburg” of Manila. A cozy two block area filled with local shops all run by young creatives. Look out for the guys new vinyl store opening soon!

Next it was time to get ready for the party! Luckily our hosts Anna and Eric had extra masks for us, since we didn’t pack anything close to a Halloween costume.

Anna’s costume was hands down the best. We watched the process of her make up getting done, it was a movie set!

Besides Bali, the party at Black Market was the craziest. At one point we both jumped on top of the DJ booth, sweated off our Halloween masks and had choreography poppin’ like we were opening for Bey!

Island in the Sun: Marley Headphones in the Philippines

The House of Marley hit the Philippines with a bang as the brand has officially landed its comfortable earbuds, noise reducing headphones, and portable audio systems in the Pearl of the Orient Seas. Launching the brand with a celebration at Prive Luxury Club in Global City, Taguig, the event invited media, fashion designers and celebrities to see just what’s in store for Marley headphones in the Philippines.


The landing of Marley headphones in the Philippines marks another momentous moment for the brand’s noise reducing headphones and portable audio systems, as it is the company’s second venture into the Asian market. After a successful start in Hong Kong, The House of Marley signed a deal with JERM Marketing, Inc. that will see comfortable earbuds like Smile Jamaica and on-ear headphones like Positive Vibrations distributed to retailers such as S&R, Anson’s Appliance, Powerbooks, National Book Store and Duty Free.


“I was inspired by the principles of the brand which follows the principles of Bob Marley,” JERM President Michael Dy Pico said of his decision to distribute The House of Marley. By having Marley headphones in the Philippines, it offers Filipinos the chance to buy products that are sustainable, made from earth-friendly materials, and observe to Bob Marley’s ideologies.


Whether it’s the FSC certified beech wood that forms the body of our most comfortable earbuds, People Get Ready or the orange-spiraled cord of the Positive Vibration on-ear headphones, The House of Marley is happy to bring a durable and stylish product to this country of islands. We’re extremely excited to have Marley headphones in the Philippines and hope that our products bring sunshine, a sense of prosperity and One Love to all Filipinos.
