Shoelace Flip Flop

DIY Tutorial: Shoelace Flip Flop | @onelmon

Anybody here wears slippers at home? Well, I do or sort of… do. Truth is I don’t wear the slip-on slippers. Instead, I wear flip flops around the house and it has been going on like that for years. I was so confident that I can just drop in any footwear store in Tokyo and get a pair of them that I refused to bring a pair from home even though my mom has suggested me to. Lesson learnt, just listen to your mom. She is always right. I’ve been here for 3 weeks and I can’t find a single store that sells flip flops! You can find slip-on slippers almost anywhere but definitely no flip flops. I don’t know, maybe I just haven’t looked far and hard enough. I tried wearing these slip-on slippers for a week and I almost fell from the stairs a couple of times. That’s when I think I need to do something about this. Slippers to flip flops make over!

Tunjuk tangan bila anda termasuk orang yang selalu memakai sandal di rumah! *Tunjuk tangan* Yeap. Saya termasuk salah satu orang itu. Biasanya sandal jenis apa yang dipakai? Kalau saya selalu memakai sandal jepit ke mana-mana. Kenapa tiba-tiba ngomong soal sandal rumah? Ceritanya 3 minggu lalu saya tiba di Tokyo untuk meneruskan studi dan walaupun sudah disarankan untuk membawa sandal rumah dari Indonesia, saya ngotot bilang ngga usah karena nanti bisa dibeli di sini. Eh, tahu-tahunya sampai sekarang saya belum menemukan toko yang menjual sandal jepit! Saya mencoba untuk mengikuti adat di sini memakai sandal biasa dan hampir jatuh dari tangga beberapa kali karenanya *ceroboh* Akhirnya setelah dipikir-pikir, kenapa ngga dibuat sendiri saja sandal jepitnya?
