Starbucks Planner 2012 -- Philippine edition!

Got a sneak preview of the 2012 Starbucks Planners last night thanks to the good folks over at Starbucks Philippines.

2012 Starbucks Planner PhilippinesInstead of the usual three designs we see every year, there's now five. Well it's actually just one design but it comes in five different wood finishes: Poplar, Bamboo, Cherry, Spruce, and Oak. Not only that, it's also packed with a free sleeve which doubles as something you can put other stuff in.
