Link Mugs

August 21, 2007


We’ve all done it at one time or another – tried to carry one mug too many rather than use a tray. The result is predictable – burnt fingers and stains on the carpet.

So, inspired by the quintessential builder’s mug, Jon has developed an ingenious solution to this problem – mugs that link together. An elegantly formed cross on the side of each mug fits neatly into the next, forming a self supporting row of up to 6 mugs. So there’s no tray, no mess and absolutely no fuss.

Snap Cups

It looks crude… but I find it kind of solve a problem on the tight space in Singapore and adding a bit of art to the house. Mix and match anyway you want it, it works like buttons on your clothes… with different handles and parts.

Keep your beer ice cold with the Endurance Double Wall Beer Mug. The air pocket created by the double stainless steel walls keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, so this is also a great mug for coffee drinks or hot chocolate. The brushed stainless exterior resists condensation, and the large handle gives you a comfortable grip.

When I was in Hong Kong, the restaurant served me a cup of tea in mugs that look very like this one. I fell in love with it. Anyone knows where I can get this one in Singapore?

Tip n’ Sip

January 6, 2007

This device keeps the coffee/tea/whatever piping hot below and cool on top for safer drinking. The “tip” comes into play because you have to tip the mug to fill the top chamber with liquid for quick cooling. Reminded me of the ancient Singapore Coffee Shop way of pouring coffee on to your saucer and drinking from that.
