My Starbucks Global Icon Series Mugs Part II.

I've previously posted my first batch of Starbucks Global Icon Series Mugs, from which the following mugs are already sitting pretty on my display shelf: Korea, Seoul, China and Macau.


But as of May, more mini-mugs (and one big mug) have been added to my collection! Here's my latest additions:



So happy with my new mugs especially with my MANILA addition! Thank you also to my GF Clarice for bringing home Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur, to Juneee for my Thailand and Bangkok, Rick and Robin for my New York Mug, and to my honey for bringing me my Cebu and Philippines mini-mugs! :)

I haven't been to both Malaysia and New York, but I requested for these anyway. Here's to hoping that I get to visit both destinations soon, especially NYC! :)

Franc Ramon said...

I think you get to know who travels a lot with the things they collect. It starts with key chains, then ref magnet, then shot glasses, then figurines and now starbucks mugs.

Chef Jasper said...

nice mug collection. :) how many do they release every time?

Marri Bermudez said...

I'm not into collection of any item but these mugs will definitely remind you of the places you've visited and you have to handle them with care because they are so fragile.

Angie Vianzon said...

Wow what a nice collection. Are you also displaying it in your house or somewhere?

Eunice said...

Wow, that's a lot of city mugs! I only have one trusted SB tumbler. :)

Jason Cruz said...

Wow! I used to do something like this when I was younger - but with Snoopys. Unfortunately, I lost them already but thankfully there were only five of them!

Jyppe A. Quidores said...

Your mugs are nice. Collecting such items are indeed fun and exciting. While you love to collect those series of mugs, I love collection metal keychains from different countries. ^_^

ana karen said...

Ohhh! awesome collection... :) i love strabucks mugs too. :) :) :)

Cai said...

That's so cool! I have a friend who collects too. Let me know if you want me to hook you guys up so you can trade or something! ;)

Jem Alvarado said...

Wow! I like your collections. Ang gaganda ng designs and unique.. My brother used to collect tumblers naman.

lily said...

wow...that's so nice! Do you use them or for display only? :)

Rizza Javier said...

Congrats to your efforts! I have friends who do the same. They even have the mugs shipped from a collector in Europe; and then they'll ship a local mug in return. A community is being built...

Mai_Flores said...

True Franc! I actually loved the idea of buying these specific mugs, that's why I buy a pair whenever I get the chance to. :)

Mai_Flores said...

Hi! What do you mean by "how many do they release every time?" :)

Mai_Flores said...

Oh, these are really fragile that's why I always put these in my hand-carry :)

Mai_Flores said...

HEhehe.. thanks Sis! :)

Mai_Flores said...

It's never too late to collect these! Ang dami nyan sa market.. :)

Mai_Flores said...

Ako naman di na ako nagTumblers kasi lagi ko nahuhulog tapos nababasag na.. di na magamit afterwards :(

Mai_Flores said...

Wow! Astig.. what subject was this back in college?

Mai_Flores said...

Hahahaha.. Love the NYC mug.. sana makapunta rin ako jan.. kung ma-approve na sana! Heheh

Mai_Flores said...

Shocks! When was the earthquake?

Mai_Flores said...

Just displaying these mugs inside my room.. mahirap ng magalaw ng ibang tao, baka mabasag pa. :)

Mai_Flores said...

Sure is! :)

Mai_Flores said...

Cute -- Snoopy stuff!!! :) Brings back my childhood days.. hehe! And why did you lose those?

Mai_Flores said...

Wow! I actually started out with keychains too. But I decided to stick to one distinct souvenir -- thus the Starbucks mugs. :)

Mai_Flores said...

Thanks! :)

Mai_Flores said...

Waaah! That's so nice.. but I would never think about trading these.. they're so precious and memorable for me.. hehe

Mai_Flores said...

Starbucks tumblers as well? :) Nice!!

Mai_Flores said...

For display purposes only.. hehe!

Mai_Flores said...

That is a cool community. :)

Chef Jasper said...

are the mugs like only available in certain countries or are they like one part of one set? if they are released as a set, were there only a few countries on a particular set or..? gulo ba? haha.

Mai_Flores said...

Haha.. I get where you're going at. :) Actually, these mugs are sold as a pair. So let's say you're in Manila, they will only sell Manila-printed mugs. But if you drop-by Cebu, you'll get to buy a Cebu-printed mug. But Starbucks doesn't have it in all of the provinces here in the Philippines.


Anyway, these mugs are also sold in different parts of the world... Let's say that you visit China, you'll find these mugs being sold in Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen, etc. :)

maritel said...

wow, a growing collection! this gives me an idea for a post on my bell collection :)

Mai_Flores said...

Oh!!! Exciting! Do share your collection of bells on your blog, ha Ms. Maritel! :)
