You Are Here Ornament – Kuwait

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Kuwait is a mini mug for the country at the tip of the Persian Gulf. Thanks to this location, the country benefits from huge oil reserves that are the sixth-largest in the world. That helps to backs up the high-income economy of the country with Kuwaiti dinar being the highest valued currency in the world.

Here’s the link, to a full-size sibling of this ornament where I’ve mentioned that the front of the mug features dromedary (camel) and Al-Khazneh – “The Treasury” (Arabic) – amazing ancient temple. … Read more

Been There Ornament – Vietnam

Starbucks Been There Ornament – Vietnam, along with the regular size mug, opens Asia for BT series. Similar to other mugs from this collection, the smaller ones have fewer items depicted or those elements are different. For this particular ornament, I would like to mention a Cycle Rickshaw, which is still a popular touristic attraction in many Vietnamese cities. This three-wheel bicycle taxi is called xích lô (pronounced “sick-low”, from the French cyclo) in Vietnam. The design includes a double seat supported by the two front wheels, with the driver sitting behind.… Read more
