Starbucks Global Icon City Mug Baguio

This is the mug that started it all, Baguio City was my very first Starbucks Global Icon City Mug.

I first saw this at Camp John Hay’s Starbucks branch some years back but hesitated in buying it. I was torn; it looked so nice but I have too many coffee mugs already and at Php425.00, its hefty price tag was not helping at all too.

I definitely know that once I bought this, the collector completist in me would surely emerge and I would have no choice but to buy each Starbucks Global Icon mugs in the country.

I let it rest for a while, thinking I’d decide after having coffee. Well, it turned out that there’s no need to, L decided it for me by secretly purchasing it and giving it to me as a gift. And so starts my quest to complete the Global City Mugs in the Philippines, thanks L!

The mug depicts what Baguio is most known for besides its cool weather, its flowers. Baguio celebrates this every February via their month-long Panagbenga Festival (which I have yet to attend, by the way). A fully bloomed sunflower graces the mug’s frontside, while pine trees stands tall at the back part. Of the eleven Starbucks mugs in the Philippines, this is the only one (as of this writing) to sport a dark green hue.
