Back To The 70's

Recommended Posts

On the 23rd of September 1972, Martial Law was declared although Marcos antedated it to September 21 (7+7+7=21). Nawala lahat ng palabas sa Zenith 21" TV namin na Black & White. Pulos mukha ni Marcos and Tatad ang palabas.


Biglang nabago ang takbo ng Pilipinas pati na Fashion and Lifestyle.


Before Martial Law

Plaza Miranda and Mendiola, not EDSA were the place for rallies and freedom.


Fashion style: Hippie - Long hair for boys and girls, distressed denims (flared), what you see nowadays. Miniskirt and hot pants for girls with matching "wet look" leather boots.


1971 - Plaza Miranda bombing


1972 - MARCOS. Martial Law. Curfew. Harrasment. No more long hair.




Bagong terms noon na nauso



Huwag kang maingay, baka madinig ka ni Marcos

Political Detainees


Pero being a child noon, wala akong pakialam.


I thought, wow, luminis, tumahimik and gumanda ang Pinas.


Enjoy ako sa mga TV series na My Favorite Martian sa morning before I go to school.


Tapos uso ang stay-in parties o tipar :D




First time kong makatikim ng Adidas (Vienna, kasi mas gusto kong Red)

Glenmore and Wilson kung leather shoes (buhay pa kaya sila?)

Wilson Shoes is supposed to be in Detroit St., Cubao.



Levi's and Wrangler lang. Or magpatahi ka na lang. American bell pang tawag nun.

Tapos lumabas ang Bangbang, Faded Glory



Hang Ten, Munsingwear, Collezione, Lacoste, Fred Perry, FILA, Lotto, Sergio Tacchini


In Places

Farmers sa Cubao

Quad sa Ayala



Well, kung naaalala nyo pa, post lang kayo.

Interesting topic. I remember that I was in Prep when Martial Law was declared. Nothing but Marcos on TV and static on the other channels. The streets were eeriely quite. According to my Dad, a lot of people actually favored the imposition of ML because the peace and order situation was getting worse around that time, what with street demonstrations and an overall rise in criminality. Of course, I didn't care less. I was just pissed because I could not watch Popeye the Sailorman on Channel 7.


There is an interesting theory that used to do the rounds that put forth the theory that the downfall of Marcos was due in part to his order to ban the showing of the Super Robot cartoons (e.g. Voltes V, Mazinger Z, and Daimos) on TV. A lot of the kids who were fans of these toons were the same young adults who demonstarted against Marcos during the times leading up to the EDSA Revolution.


Before I go way off topic does anyone remember Faded Glory Jeans , Nik-Nik shirts, Bang-Bang and Yeh Yeh Vonnel?

1$ - 7P.


Vonnel was from the 60's.


Faded Glory (Bang bang) denim pants with Nik nik shirt. They cost a fortune then. I remember, my mom bought them at Zurbaran near Quiapo Central market. Those were the days of printed polyester.


What I like then was seeing girls in tight fitting Gloria Vanderbilt, Sasson, Jordache and siempre Fiorucci denim pants and don't forget the Brooke Shields CK pants.


The Wherelse Disco era.

Danskin leotards with balloon skirt and no bras. Sexy, sexy, sexy. SWING :P

yes...the 1970s. Those were the glory days of boxing. Muhammad Ali was making headlines with the Oscar Bonavena fight, after the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed charges on Ali's evasion on his military draft.


October 1, 1975 - Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier in the sensational bout "THRILLA IN MANILA" at the Araneta Coliseum. Refereed by Carlos Padilla (Zsa Zsa Padilla's dad). Ali Mall in Cubao was erected and named after the legendary boxer.


August 1974 - Heavyweight championship bout "Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire, Africa - Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman. The "Rope-A-Dope" technique was applied/revealed courtesy of "the Greatest".


1978 - Leon Spinks was defeated by Muhammad Ali , earning Ali the only boxer to have won the heavyweight championship title three times.


Television hit mini-series in the 1970s


1. Roots - based on the novel by Alex Hailey.

2. Richman, Poorman Books 1 and 2

3. Centennial - starring Robert Conrad as French trapper Paskinel.

Shoes nung 70's na di na uso ngayon:



Sling-back shoes with a thick heel and sole, made of wood with leather or suede front straps and a metal buckle.


Earth Shoes

Ergonomically correct shoes in which the heels were lower than the front.


Platform Shoes

Shoes with a sole of at least 4 to 7 inches high. Made you look taller than you really were.

May bagong silang, may bago nang buhay

Bagong ___, bagong dangal, sa bagong Lipunan.

nagbabago ang lahat, tungo sa pag-unlad

At ating itanghal bagong lipunan.


Ang gabi'y nagmaliw nang ganap, at lumipas na ang magdamag

Madaling araw ay nagdiriwang sa umagang namasdan

Lumingon ang pag-asa, sa umagang anong ganda


May bagong silang, may bago nang buhay

Bagong ___, bagong dangal, sa bagong Lipunan.

I remember Jollibee as a cheaper alternative to Tropical Hut Burger. Magkalasa burger nila pero mas mura ng P1 ang jollibee. Jollibee was like a soda fountain cum diner. The first Jollibee was located near Quezon Theater, Cubao. Jolllibee served then Magnolia ice cream preparations like Banana split, shakes and ice cream sodas.


Dr. J was with Philadelphia together with Moses Malone.
