Mom literally just got back from a trip in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (how exotic, I know) and what did she bring as pasalubong? Havaianas, of course!
Havs are originally from Brazil and according to mom, there were a lot of shops selling them along the roads. Quite cheap as compared here in Manila. And also, they’re softer (maybe they use a different kind of rubber?)
I remember how crazy Pinoys were over these slippers but since I couldn’t wear them for work, I never bought a ton. This time, we have an overload! Haha! Plus, in a tropical country such as ours, slippers are the way to go.
Mine is the zebra print and neon green! I wanted something loud for a change perfect for the beach. I originally wanted the yellow with the brazil flag but it was too small for me.
Time to head to the beach! Or to the nearby market. Hehe.
