I have been quite a Starbucks fan since I first discovered it in high school. I never was a huge coffee fan when I was younger but I started liking Starbucks frappucinos since my sister introduced to me them. Being the sweet tooth that I am, I liked it quite a lot. Later on though, I have acquired a taste for coffee as well, and I don’t think I have to say that I liked getting my coffee from Starbucks when I can too.
When I got to college, I have always wanted a Starbucks tumbler, but I was never fond of the designs that I see on the display shelves. I’m always a believer of getting the best things for a good price and I didn’t want to spend more than my half-week’s allowance on something I didn’t really like.
It’s been a while since I’ve given up on finding an awesome tumbler. I’ve been thinking of getting one just so I can have one for the office but I’ve always been procrastinating about it. Then, I saw an acquaintance who is now based in Japan, post a photo of a Sakura Starbucks tumbler on Facebook. I instantly loved it and after a few searches in Google, I think I’m quite attached to the fact that I will get a tumbler from Japan. Now I have graduated, have gotten a job and have been sucked into that black hole called Yahoo Japan Auction, I’ve been thinking of a way to get my hands on one… although I feel that buying from a proxy would make it three times more expensive than it is when it was bought from Starbucks. Which is why I tried posting in places where there might be a few kind souls who could help me get it directly from Starbucks. So far though, I haven’t had any luck.
I’m still trying to look for someone who can help me with this, but I guess if I don’t find anyone by next week I shall have to settle for YJA and proxies.
Well, so much for my figure pre-ordering halt. I feel like I’m going to spend as much on this/these as I would if I bought a scaled figure or two to three nendos. ~_~;
