Vending machine — it is everywhere!



Seriously, you can see these things everywhere — even in the rural area like Sado Island.

And not only for drinks; but also for snacks, meals, ice cream, cigarettes, … and even rice (in 5kg packs).



Interesting, no?

  6. Vending machines are everywhere here too. We have 3 at the office, selling chips mostly but has other desserts, gums, instant noodles, soda, tea. Sometimes there are vending machines that sells really bad coffee – actually more like water with coffee smell.

    • Hahahaha… water with coffee smell. Yeah, I can imagine that :D…
      Back in Indonesia, we don’t have a lot of vending machines. But we have small kiosk that sells everything, everywhere :-)…
