I started seriously collecting Starbucks City mugs this year. From my one and only Cebu mug at the beginning of the year, I now have 17+1 in my collection. At first I wanted city mugs from cities I have been to, but a fellow collector convinced me to collect from the rest of the cities. I particularly like the current style so might as well collect and collect. Got into thinking that when I visit the other cities someday, the current collection may no longer be available.
You may wish to read my previous posts on my collection here.
Special thanks to my husband, siblings and best friend for collecting for me and lugging my mugs in their checked in baggage and carry ons.
After my trip to Manila, I have 9 more new cities. It's either I bought them personally, or were given to me as gifts.
Tokyo - the odd man out
Below is an updated list of the city mugs I now own (as of 26 December 2011) --
6. Chiang Mai
14/15. Singapore (2 versions)
I am open to trading. I can source city mugs here in Thailand. You may send me an e-mail message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's to more travels and friends/family who travel willing to buy me mugs in 2012!
