I swear I am not an alcoholic !!

Besides the fridge magnets, we also collect miniature liquors. These are the two things we always look for everywhere we go.

I still remembered when we first started to buy the miniatures on the Aussie trip at the airport duty free shop. That time we bought it because we wanted to try those liquors, they weren't meant as collectibles.

A few years later, we bought the Mozart liquors in Austria. Bought them for the same reason too, but after we finished the content, we found the bottles too pretty to throw away.

Then we got more and more bottles from Macau, Taipei, and the recent Europe trips. They were so cheap in Spain, especially those bought from the groceries shop run by a Chinese. He gave me a huge discount because I am Chinese too. Then in Gibraltar, so many liquor shops in the town area that made us skipped lunch. In Prague, also bought them from a Chinese-owned minimart. These miniatures were cheaper in Europe than in Asian countries. Anyway, I don't think we could find them in Asia.

In the end, we brought 25 bottles back to Singapore. :P
