Make Your Own Havainas 2016 Shibori Sole

MYOH Davao 2016

It’s that time of the year again. Time for MYOH Davao 2016! MYOH stands for Make Your Own Havaianas.

Once a year, Havaianaticos get the chance to design their own Havaianas. And yup, thanks to Havaianas Philippines and Martish Marketing, I get the chance to be one of the first to create my own Havaianas in Davao this year.

Check out the kawaii invite I got.

Yup, yup. This year’s MYOH is Japanese-themed. It is inspired from the Japanese Zori thong sandals. This year’s commemorative soles and pins are all inspired from all things Japan. The commemorative soles have a Shibori pattern, available in top and slim. And there are super kawaii pins that reflect everything there is to love about the land of the rising sun.

Check out my dream MYOH 2016 Flip-Flops:

It is a slim Shibori sole with metallic pink straps and too cute for words commemorative Japan pins. On the right side are delicious Japanese stuff: sushi, ramen, and Japanese beer. One the left side are a pretty Japanese girl, a Japanese fan, and the beautiful but elusive sakura cherry blossom.

Beautiful, right? Crossing my fingers I get this exact pair tomorrow.

MYOH Davao 2016 is happening from April 22, 2016 to May 1, 2016 at the 2nd Floor of SM Lanang Premier near Starbucks.

Convenient, coz Havaianas has partnered with Starbucks SM Lanang Premier for an awesome summer for all Havaianiticos. When you purchase of any of the Starbucks Summer 2016 drinks, the Starbucks Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino Blended Beverage or the Starbucks Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino Blended Beverage, you get a voucher for a FREE Limited Edition pin that you can use to customize your MYOH flip-flops.

Pluuuuus, when you purchase a Havaianas Commemorative Shibori sole at MYOH, you will be given a “Make Your Own Frappuccino” voucher. You can use this to get 2 free add-ons for your choice of Starbucks drinks. I suggest getting an extra shot of espresso and an extra drizzle of hazelnut, mint, or orange syrup.

I will be at MYOH Davao 2016 tomorrow and I will be posting updates on social media. Follow me on Facebook at, on Instagram @riajosedavao, on Twitter @riajose, and on Snapchat @riajosedavao.
