I received these mugs a couple of weeks ago but it’s just now that I had a chance to blog about it. These are the limited edition Starbucks Relief Mug that is the newest addition to the Collector Series City Mug. It features Manila and Cebu in a specially sculptured mug.
You might be wondering why it’s called Relief Mug. Well, the term “relief” comes from the Latin verb ‘relevo’ which means to raise. Relief is a sculptural technique wherein the shapes carved on a surface stands out from the background.
