Make Your Own Havaianas turns 10

MYOH 2015 - Ilocos

Hau`oli la ho’omana’o, MYOH!

The MYOH 10 years commemorative pair is the best ever! Why is it so easy to love the Vintage Hawaii pair? Because it’s blue and blue is the most universal color I know:) It’s my most favorite color and any color becomes livelier next to blue. Also, because we say “Aloha” here more than anywhere else in the country. It’s safe to say Ilocos is partly the land of Hawaiianos and Hawaianas. And, of course, they are Havaianas, now a (essential) part of our daily lives.

So this is what happened on the first day of the MYOH 2015. I saw many of my dear friends. I had fun being in a photo with everyone. Aloha can mean a lot of different things. I like it more as a hello than a goodbye. Actually.

Color is the new black: MYOH 2014

The local scene is turning glocal. Straight from the future — at a UNESCO, City Government of Laoag and Northwestern University collaboration of an anticipatory thinking and strategic foresight forum-workshop — I went to Brazil for the Make Your Own Havaianas event of the year at the Robinsons Ilocos Norte.  If these are signs of a brighter future, then the Bonfim print wishes for each and every holder of the Havaianas commemmorative pair should come true.

My fellow workshoppers from the Cagayan Valley Region dropped by the MYOH 2014 area.

Michael and I made Brazilian icon Carmen Miranda flip-flops for Raine who is semi-globetrotting these days. In my head, I wish her sunshine.
