Open happiness

Jemilla's Grade Three ICS class recently went on a tour of the Swire Coca Cola facilities in Hong Kong, the world's tallest bottling plant. Out of the goodness of his heart, Craig volunteered to be a parent helper for the excursion. (Translation: Craig is a HUGE fan of "black gold" and was hoping for some free samples.) They learned about the recycling process of various beverage package materials, and visited the plant′s wastewater treatment facilities. The students observed the manufacturing processes at the factory, which reportedly generates 2000 cans of Coca-Cola per minute. Jemilla and Craig especially enjoyed the Coca Cola museum which featured vintage items and fascinating history of the product. As far as free samples went, Jemilla got a folder and Qoo juice which is just fine with me as I am one of those mean Mums who won't allow our children to drink Coke. Craig also ended up buying a little money box made out of an empty can of Coke.


  1. That looks like such a fun outing! I wish I could have been there.

  2. 1894? Wow!
    And how about 'To your health'! Very ironic :)
