|Drinks from Vending Machines, Part 1 of 2 : Japan|
|當我在日本嘅時候, 每日有件事係我好期待嘅, 就係去搵售賣機買嘢飲.. 補充水份係當然㗎啦, 其實真正原因係因為售賣機在日本實在係太過普遍喇.. 雖然係普遍, 但係周圍都係, 對我呢個鄉下仔嚟講就係奇觀.. 雖然係普遍, 但係所售賣嘅飲品種類繁多, 可有花多眼亂嘅感覺.. 好嘅, 以人類可以明白嘅語言再講多㳄, 就係普遍但不普通, 哈哈!! 所以每日都有呢個小小嘅「行程」去發掘未試過嘅嘢飲, 我樂在其中㗎, 同一樣嘢飲, 可能同一條街所有售賣機都唔會再有㗎.. 上面張相嗰啲只係小部份, 睇下啲包裝幾精彩~~|
返到嚟馬來西亞, 就悶好多喇.. 售賣機唔普遍, 選擇又少, 賣嚟賣去都係嗰幾個品牌.. 我好少有興趣, 除非真係渴到一定要飲嘢, 而且要就腳囉..
|when i was in Japan, one thing that i looked forward to everyday was buying drinks from vending machines.. of course replenishing fluid was one thing, but the real reason was because vending machines are ubiquitous in Japan.. though ubiquitous, the ubiquity was in fact impressive to a kampung boy like me, and though ubiquitous, the splendid varieties of drinks sold in the machines did not make a single brand seems omnipresent.. okay, in human understandable words, ubiquitous but not ordinary, haha!! hence, i enjoy buying new types of drinks everyday and this was one exciting little "itinerary" to explore new ones to try, one that may not be available again in the other machines down the same street.. those in the photo above are just a handful, look at the beautiful packaging..|
back in Malaysia, i guess it is so much more boring.. not only vending machines are scarce, choices are so little and even the products sold are almost identical.. i rarely got the interest but of course at times when i really need something to drink, i still get one from the machines if it is convenient..

你正在睇緊呢篇二合一貼文嘅第二部份..就喺呢一日, 我非常之口渴, 所以決定幫襯輕快鐵站口呢部滊水售賣機.. 我(有啲遲疑地)放入兩張RM1紙後, 就拜(點解要拜?? 因為馬來西亞好多售賣機係入咗錢之後即壞嘅)我支如圖所見嘅500毫升膠樽出現.. 大家估下最後乜嘢落咗入個提取箱度?? 請點擊繼續..係個325毫升鋁罐裝!! 係個要RM2嘅325毫升f**king鋁罐裝!! 係個要RM2而同所見嘅不同嘅325毫升f**king鋁罐裝!! 呢一種售賣機以往都係RM2俾你支500毫升膠樽裝㗎, 幾時開始已經唔係所見即所得嘅估仔呀??!! 另一款售賣機同樣嘅325毫升鋁罐裝都係RM1咋噃, 我真係嚇到呆咗喺度囉.. @.@"
you are now reading the second part of this 2-in-1 post..and that was this day, i was so thirsty and decided to get something from this machine at the LRT station.. i (hesitantly) inserted two pieces of RM1 and was praying (why pray?? because many machines in Malaysia go out of order after you insert your money) for my 500ml bottle as seen on the machine.. guess what dropped down into the collection box?? please click to read on..a 325ml can!! a f**king 325ml can for RM2!! a f**king 325ml can for RM2 that is not what is seen!! this type of machine used to give a 500ml bottle for RM2, since when this is no longer the WYSIWYG story??!! another type of machine is vending the same 325ml can at just RM1, i was totally dumbfounded.. @.@"
