Did you know that you can get RM1 off your drink at Starbucks just by bringing your own tumbler?
I discovered this by accident this afternoon. Every week over the past few months, I’ve been ordering one or two cups of their signature hot chocolates to go (they’re *hEaVenLy*), each time gingerly carrying a piping hot paper cup 3 floors down KLCC, across the street and back to my office. So to cut back on wasting paper, I went and bought myself a [Bodum travel mug](http://www.bodumusa.com/shop/line.asp?MD=1&GID=6&LID=565&HID=1405%2D01FM%2DC&CHK=&SLT=&mscssid=76T7EHSUH9CL9KHA1NA9KJVRGWDN6QLC) from Isetan, specifically for buying hot drinks.
Today I brought my tumbler to Starbucks for the first time, and to my surprise the barista told me I would get a ringgit off because of it. Happiness! And no more burned fingers!
So now you know. Go green, and save some money off your coffee fixes.
