Useless Observations

As I have mentioned this morning, we were hanging out in the coffeeshop last night when Eugene suddenly decided to probe my MSN nickname.

Eugene: So, have you found out why Yakult contain 100ml?

A discussion ensued within the group of us, reaching a subsequent concensus that it is regarding the limited dosage of bacteria our vulnerable stomach can handle.

Eugene: So Coke why 330 ml?
Me: Eh, some smart aleck commented on my blog, saying 330ml is half pint.
Eugene: Is it!? I thought pint is in some sort of weird numbers, not that round.

(Psst, I did some research. Apparently, 1 US pint = 0.473176475 ml. 1 UK pint = 0.568261485 liters. Either way, smart aleck, you're wrong!!!!!)

Minghua: Eh you mean all canned drinks 330ml meh?
Me: Not meh?

At this point of time, all of us looked at the cans on our table, comprising primarily of Lemon Tea, Liang Cha and a Coke. Apparently, the non-fizzy drinks contained only 300ml of liquid. The fizzy ones like Coke have 330 ml! Isn't that amazing?! 30ml more of gas?!

What useless observations do sharp people like us bring you.

Next time go on date nothing to say, remember this okay.

do u know that the yakult here in japan comes in smaller bottles (which is the original size)?

apparently, they had to sell yakult in bigger bottles in singapore, bcos the customers (being singaporeans, heheh) had complained that the drink was too small...
