Yep, for a lot of people it’s the time of the year again wherein they watch the blow by blow account of what’s going on in the UAAP. Unfortunately for me, I never had the same experience since the school that I went to was not part of the UAAP. So I never really experienced the kind of school spirit and never really rooted for any team. Yes, I was very apathetic.
Summer according to Wikipedia is the warmest of the four temperate seasons, between spring and autumn. Here in the Philippines, we don’t really feel the 4 different seasons. It’s just summer and everything else. But after the Christmas holidays, when everyone is back to work or back to school and everything returns to normal, the next thing that everyone prepares for is Summer.
I looked for when summer starts in the Philippines (officially) but it does not say. From what I know, usually, the school year ends in March and that usually marks the beginning of Summer. But for purpose of reference, Spring Equinox is on March 20, 2011 and Summer Solstice is on June 21, 2011.
But, really what is summer for you? For me, when I was young, summer was a time when I was soo free and I had soo much time to do whatever I wanted. When I grew up and graduated from school, summer had a different meaning. Yes, I was more restricted. Yes, I did not have time to do whatever I wanted because I still had a schedule to keep. BUT, it was a time when I could schedule vacations or trips to places that I wanted to see.
This time around, Havaianas defined it differently. Check out their video below and find out what summer is to them…
Well, well, well, quite timely isn’t it. I was really planning to buy new slippers for my Heart-shaped Pininho. I am actually looking for white ones to go with the red heart.

Yup, this is the second installment of the Pininho Promo Winners. And we have here the picture from Abigail. She was given a pin with the inscription “True Love” and definitely, she has found her True Love in the form of a pink heart pinned to her silver slim slippers. Very cute indeed! Check out the picture below. 😉
Hey, hey guys! I’d like to share with you some photos from the winners of the Pininho promo that we held last month! All of them already got their Pininhos and some have already shared with us the pictures of their Pininho on their slippers. So, for the first installment, I’m going to share with you Ava’s pictures.
Ava gave the following answer to the Pininho Promo:
“i would design it with glittery dragonflies since i super love dragonflies!”
Her answer was one of the chosen once and she was given this really cute apple pin which she placed on her Brazil slippers. Cool, huh? It actually evened out the one sided design of this style of slippers.
Thanks again for joining the promo Ava! I hope that you continue reading Manila Shopaholic and loving your newly Expressorized Havaianas! 🙂
