Have you ever encountered a situation when the only thing that you wanted was to change one color or design on the clothes, shoes or flip-flops that you were eyeing? And because you could not, you ended up leaving and not buying. It sucks, right? That was me when I was in high school in every Havaianas branch; because I am very particular with colors it made me want to get the only color combination I loved to have but unfortunately at that time, I could not just change the color of the strap or sole. But luckily, Havaianas created the Make Your Own Havaianas where you get to customize your own pair from its sole (regular or slim) to color to pins! Sounds fun? It is verily fun! Thus, I never let myself to miss this once a year event and make a pair just the way I like it! So last May 7, I headed over to Glorietta Activity Center to make my own Havaianas.
The process was fast and convenient. If you have not experienced MYOH yet, here are the steps that you should do the moment you get to the venue. First, register at the registration area and then wait for a staffer to assist you. He or she will lead you to the activity area where there are color wheels to help you decide which sole, strap and pins to use.
When you finally have the color combination you want in mind, simply fill up the form and then put a checkmark on your choices. When you are done, you can go straight to one of the MYOH staffers then give the form to him or her and wait until he or she finishes your pair. You can also ask for his or her opinion if you are still undecided, every staff in MYOH is nice and chummy, so never hesitate to ask!
Last year, I opted for a combination of pink and green, and now, what I chose was a pair with purple and pink combination.
It was only a few minutes before my pair was made. Thanks to my pretty assembler, Angel!
After that, you should head over to the cashier for your payment. Prices range from P895 for a basic combo-pair to P1,045 for a Slim commemorative pair while pins vary between P100 and P150.
Voilà! Here’s my new MYOH pair! It has Pineapple, Aloha and Crystal pins! This year’s pins were really cute! I am looking forward to the new pins next year! What do you think is MYOH’s theme by then?
