Make Your Own Havaianas 2017

Every year Make Your Own Havaianas (MYOH for short) lets Havaianaticos step into a different place with fun themes that inspire the total flip-flop customization experience.

It has taken everyone to colorful Brazil, sunny Hawaii, and kawaii Japan. This year, Havaianas sets foot (pun fully intended!) into a different time and, hands down, it's one of the best decades ever! 

The '90s was an awesome decade! From the music to the fashion, the movies to the TV shows, the toys and games, to the slang … the list of reasons goes on and on. It was a simpler (*cough* and happier *cough*) time! 

This year's commemorative pair is a total must-have! It comes in a classic black sole with pixels, inspired by the 8-bit video games that defined the decade. Cue in the nostalgia! 

The pins are also '90s-themed and they are totally rad! The choices include throwback icons of a TV, cassette tape, boom box, and a video game icon. There's a pin that simply says “I ❤ 90s” for those who lived through this rad time. 

Back in the day, bedrooms were a whole lot cooler if they were glow-in-the-dark. So, Havaianas has come up with glow-in-the-dark pins that come in five super fun designs: a lightning bolt, smiley, star, lips, and the letters M-Y-O-H. 

Head to MYOH at the Activity Center of Centrio an Ayala Mall for something very cool, or as ‘90s kids would say, totally phat! For the first time ever, Havaianas makes use of *3D printing technology that can print pins before your eyes. These pins are customizable with different initials! *Available on June 29 only* 

Make Your Own Havaianas is on June 29- July 2, 2017 at the Activity Center of Centrio Ayala Mall, Cagayan de Oro City. Follow Spruce on Facebook and @SprucePH on Twitter and Instagram for updates on #MYOH2017 in Cagayan de Oro.

Deped Schools in Mindanao will open on June 5 despite Martial Law situation

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, May 30, 2017 - DepEd Secretary Leonor M. Briones says during the Meeting of DepEd Regional Directors of Mindanao today that Education of our learners will proceed whatever the situation is. Education should not be compromised and we have to reach out to our learners wherever they are because that is our mandate and that is part of the culture of the Filipino.

The secretary's statement would mean that the opening of the school year will still be on June 5, 2017 despite Martial Law situation in Mindanao. However, for Marawi and 8 other barangays in Lanao del Sur and Iligan City will have to be postponed by two weeks. 

DepEd Region X have already conducted an inventory of learners who have transferred to Cagayan de Oro as well as the number of teachers they will be needing for the opening of the school year. DepED and ARMM will work hand in hand in mobilizing teachers who can speak the Maranao language well. ARMM will provide the teachers and the Central office shall provide the funding. 

With regards to the question of whether DepEd is ready for the opening on June 5, Secretary Briones said, “We have to be ready as we can be”. As of the moment, they have already provided temporary learning spaces in response to the problem of school facilities and coordinated with the curriculum group to provide additional books and educational materials for the learners. 

Other things that were considered are the implementation of the ‘Flexi Time’ in every class, providing financial assistance and psychosocial interventions to teachers and learners who were affected during the Marawi Siege and mobilizing the private sectors with all the assistance they can provide.

For students who wish to transfer their schooling to any parts of the country, the Secretary emphasized that children should be welcomed wherever they are and enrollment requirements will be waived.

Here are some of their delicious pizzas.

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza - Spinto

The famous Mad Cow Pizza is one of their best selling pizza. They say it "mad cow" because you will surely get mad how it is made deliciously beefy and spicy.
We all enjoyed every bite of pizzas we had.
