Shotglass Collection

1st, thanx to all my friends who help me add to this small collection of mine. Not forgetting Dear, who walk miles with me just to find a shotglass when we go travelling.

This collection(about 23 pieces now and still counting) was started when we went to Sweden, under some influence I must say, I took onto this hobby, Since many of them collect HRC bears and stuff.. indeed, 1 new addition of the shotglass makes my day.. Yesterday too! Wanting Exchg 1 Toronto shotglass with 1 of my Seoul glass.. which incidentally, was bought by her whn she went Korea. I went Korea 1st, but thou I walk miles to HRC, I did not buy as I was just a student then, No money to spend on such things. So when she went in recent years, I tompang her to buy =)

Among some, are my fav. The Icelandic one(the 1st one in front). Long story.. When we finaly reach a ULU place like Iceland. Search high and low for the HRC.. only to our dismay they sold out their shotglass... Icelandic people are damn nice.. the lady offer to reserve for me when stock comes in 2 weeks and ship to me FOC... Gosh.. I bet my friends who din managed to get it are all envious. Thou I regreted big time now that I gave 1 pc of the 1 pair to my cousin..cos I feel he din cherish it properly...chuck it in his car booth for months.. (maybe its already broken now) should have given it to Wanting instead..damn....

Anyway, some of them as I mention my gfs got for mi when they went overseas, like those from Lisbon, Madrid, Toronto, Leeds, Tokyo, Dubai etc.. Caca herself got 1 pair of Beijing ones.. she kindly gave me 1 piece later on when I move house hahaa

These are another range of shotglass.. from Disneyland, Dubai special edition, from London, Australia (dear bought it for me =) ) etc..

These are smaller in size but with tapered end. The middle one is from ice Hotel in Sweden.. anotehr precious one since not many people go to Ice hotel in Singapore... the other is from Morrum in Sweden wehre we go and see people fish for salmon. the 3rd one is of cos from Pisa =)

These pair are both from England. 1 was from Stonehenge (I rem that place was freakign chilly) and the other from Bath Town where all the roman baths are... Squarish deisgn.. very sleek =)

this is bought by Dear in Germany I think.. its sold in Singapore also.. there is a coutner at Taka B1 that sells and also a shop at Citylink if im not wrong.. very cute.. thou quite light..

The funny thing is.. till now I still do not have KL and BangkOK one! arghh... I gonna get hold of 1 soon...
