You Are Here Ornament – Switzerland

Here is the second mini mug from the recent weekend release. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Switzerland is a colorful representative of this adorable series and has everything this country is famous for: cheese, chocolate, watch, lakes, and mountains. And for the latter, designers specifically depicted the Matterhorn, a pyramidal peak between Italy and Switzerland. The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points and are split by the Hörnli, Furggen, Leone/Lion, and Zmutt ridges. As for the bear (on the back of the mug), this is probably related to Bern, “city of Bears”.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Austria

It has been a while since the last YAH ornament has been added here. I sincerely believed that Starbucks will be releasing one ornament every Friday. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen, and as an excuse, our beloved company has delivered two minis in one shot last weekend. You Are Here Ornament Austria is one of those. It comes with the blue string and has the same color inside, similar to the bigger mug, Austria YAH. As a reminder, there was also a limited edition ornament for this country.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Phuket

Similar to two Thailand YAHs coming out together, there are also two minis in the batch. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Phuket is accompanying Pattaya and I believe will be available in stores together with the latter (somewhere in April). The ornament has the navy string, and as you can see, it is of the regular shape. Not sure what I am talking about? Just compare it to the string used for Thailand YAH Ornament, which was the only mini with this type of string (flat ribbon, instead of rope).… Read more

You Are Here – Phuket

Here’s the second mug for Thailand to be released soon – Starbucks You Are Here – Phuket. And since Phuket is an island known for amazing beaches and resorts, we again see some ocean scenery to be used for the design of the mug. As an addition to that, there are some houses representing Sino-Portuguese architecture. It is a mix of European and Chinese styles and is coming from the era of Western imperialism when Portuguese settlers hired Chinese workers to build houses and other facilities for them.… Read more

You Are Here – Pattaya

With the reveal of Starbucks You Are Here – Pattaya mug it has become evident that the company decided to fill some gaps within YAH series in Asia. It is worth mentioning that we did have Thailand country mugs, regular and Christmas edition, both released in 2017, at the beginning and at the end of the year, respectively.
As for Pattaya mug, it is not an official release yet, but a sneak peek by an avid collector. We only have blurry images at the moment and so far I can see the ocean, the beach, palm trees and hotels along the bay – a perfect kit for an amazing vacation.… Read more

You Are Here – Japan 3 Spring Edition

What an amazing surprise by Starbucks! I was super excited today, to hear the news about the release coming to the Land of the Rising Sun. You Are Here – Japan v3 “Spring Edition” is a perfect mug to say goodbye to the winter.
It looks very similar to the other two versions, but with the Spring touch, obviously. We still see beautiful Fuji covered in snow, with the setting sun, behind it. This well-known view can be observed from the shore of the Yamanaka lake, which is located to the East of the mountain.… Read more
