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!
