We Have The Technology
by venitha

Sentosa Island's vending machines are impressive indeed. Not only can I use my ez-link card, the same card I use for the MRT and the busses, to buy a Coke, but I can also SMS the machine from my handphone and charge a can of Jasmine tea to my Singtel account.
While I've been busy lamenting the fact that every beverage vending machine I've encountered in southeast Asia does not accept paper money - remember, I just gave all my coins to my busker - Singapore leapfrogs my desires and lands smack dab in the 21st century. To infinity, and beyond!
