Collapsible Cups
« on: Oct 18, 11, 03:16 PM »
Anybody knows where I can buy collapsible cups in Singapore?

Prefer metal ones.

Thanks!

This is an example: http://www.amazon.com/Colonel-Conk-Sunstar-507-Collapsible/dp/B001XURHM0

But I was hoping for something bigger.

This is just a little bigger I think...

but I find it not as useful as I thought it would be. Mabbe its the construction of this particular cheap model, but as you use it or move it, it may "loosen" and accidentally collapse...so in the end, never really bring it on my trip

Thanks for the feedback, easily retracted would be a problem.

I was thinking of using it for tea drinking while on long train journeys. But now I am considering to bring a thermos, can use the bottle cover as a cup. But quite small also.

In that case, I definitely recommend the thermos! Esp train journeys during winter... :)
I use something like this :

Yesh, the one I have is something similar.  Been in the kitchen cabinets for 7 years!  I tested it over the weekend, still holds in the heat pretty well.
