Caribbean Urban Safari Summer Collection

Got this e-invite below from Az of  Azrael's Merryland last week.  I was hesitant to attend  for two reason. First, I thought Az invite was a mistake and was intended for another Joy Blogger. When Az confirmed this invite was meant for me, I still had reservations whether to go or not because I am a loyal client and supporter of an imported flip flop brand. 



I do not know much about Caribbean Footwear so two days prior to the event I checked their FB page. I still didn't get much information except for photos of their slippers.

On the day of the event, I made sure to be an hour earlier at the venue, Red Mango in Greenbelt 3, to get the best seat as I was curious to learn more about this flip flop that is foreign to me.  


I was super early at the venue so I got to interview Denise, Caribbean's Marketing Manager. I was shocked to know that Caribbean is a local brand, yes it's proudly Pinoy made! I was even more shocked at how affordable this 'tsinelas' is! Imagine spending around less than two hundred pesos for a nice pair as compared to imported brands that ranges around a thousand pesos or more! It's a plus wow that Caribbean Slippers has cute and cool designs that matches any outfit.


Other facts I've learned about Caribbean Footwear:

1. Cutting edge design supports balance and comfort
2. Finest strap as it fused elegance, creativity and durability
3. The mid-foot curve enhances posture and foot alignment
4. The sole provides ultimate protection and stability 

The adage "early bird catches the worm" is so true, 
because I won this great red pair of Caribbean
 for being the earliest bird, err, Blogger to arrive at the venue.


Although the Marketing peeps of Caribbean told us about their flip flops durability, comfort,  etcetera, etcetera, I didn't just take their words. So, for three consecutive days, I test drive the 2 Caribbean slippers - the red pair I won as early bird and the green pair as take home goodie for Bloggers.  

Day 1:
I was out of the house the whole day to cover two events, Earth Day Jam 2013 and the opening of a new store Nurture Nook. Plus, I had a date with my sister, err, daughter.


With Earth Jam performers
At Nurture Nook, checking baby products

Spa date with Julia
Day 2:
From Mandaluyong to San Juan, to Quezon City. 

With Ms. Jasmin and Ms. Divine
11am, my kids' card distribution

1pm, lunch at Vikings

2pm, with Cookie Monster at SM Toon Fest Media Launch, SM The Block

8pm, indoor swimming at Ace Water Spa.
11pm, uwian na from Ace Water Spa.
 Day 3:
 Events, events!
11am, Xenical' s Rock The Fat Away at Holiday Inn, Makati
4pm, Mommy Mundo's Momtuition at Rockwell Tent

My verdict: I was able to pull it off wearing tsinelas to events, which I don't normally do. For that I  give credit to Caribbeans stylish and fashionable design. Secondly, Despite the long hours of driving and walking through all those events I went to, di nanakit ang mga paa at (maiikli) kong binti. And lastly, masasabi ko di naman pala kailangang mahal ang sapin sa paa para maging komportable ang paglalakbay.  


But hey, don't take my word for it, go get yourself Caribbean's Urban Safari Summer Collection and experience the comfort I felt for the past three days.

  1. To say that your life is busy is an understatement Joy. Perhaps one day you could write how you started to get blogger invitations and events so we could all learn from it.

    Blessings !

  21. The photos were all so revealing. You were able to cover so many venues in one day. That's a good testimonial to your energy and the durability of your Caribbean sandals. BTW, they were so stylish that it did not seem to bother you going to all those places with just a pair of sandals. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
