It is always is very overwhelming to be present in an event that didn’t just make history in one continent but in the entire world also. Havaianas, 50 years of comfort and style, celebrated their Golden Anniversary a few weeks ago during the annual Make Your Own Havaianas Cebu special preview. (photobombing ahead)

My apologies if it took awhile for me to blog about this but if you haven’t read my article published at The Freeman a while back, just redirect yourselves here.

An excerpt:

 As we devoured cones of Wasabi ice cream at the launch night, host Mia Arcenas took us back in time to Havaianas’ history complete with Joseph The Artist of Talentadong Pinoy’s sand art show. Leanne Florendo and Aimil Sarmiento, from AL Amizade, sole distributor of Havaianas in Visayas, toasted to 50 Years of Havaianas style before a shower of confetti and a series of cheers echoed Leanne and Aimil’s thank yous to everyone who was in SM Northwing that night.
