The Make Your Own Havaianas 2015 CDO leg was one of the fashion events I looked forward to attending this year. I just love attending MYOH events since I like customizing my very own Havaianas by choosing my preferred straps, soles and special pins. Held last May 6, 2015 at All Flip Flops SM City Cagayan de Oro, the MYOH CDO 2015 event gathered fellow Havaianaticos (read: avid fans of Havaianas) for the special 10th year of Make Your Own Havaianas! Check out this absolutely cool invitation I got from my friends over at Spruce (the exclusive distributor of Havaianas in northern and western Mindanao): That was awesome, no? :) I also shared the same photo on my Instagram account Mindanaoan Anyway, here are some photos taken during MYOH CDO 2015: ...

I previously mentioned here on Mindanaoan that I was involved in a recent 3-day series of events for the Rustan's Fresh CDO opening. Aside from the grand opening, Rustan's Fresh Supermarket Cagayan de Oro City also sponsored a walkathon (in partnership with Xavier EcoVille, wherein all proceeds collected from the registration fees went to the said resettlement project for Typhoon Sendong survivors) and a Rustan's Fresh Cagayan de Oro preview night attended by VIPs, trade partners, concessionaires, traditional media practitioners, bloggers, guests and other local key personalities. Hundreds of people came to get a sneak peek of the 4,186 square meter store and 17th branch in the Philippines.

Mindanaoan was invited to meet the What A Girl Wants (WAGW) CDO Young Ambassadors of Style 2012 last November 24, 2012 during the official launch of the WAGW Centrio Mall branch.
