Vending machines surtainly lure me! The insides look so colouful and tasty. ^^ But I'm usually out of coins or change when I see one. They are not so popular in my city.

One thing nice in Japan is that certain machine here is you can pay using your pre-charged charge. Prepaid card? And that same card, you can use it to pay your train fare, certain convenient stores, and even some shops! It's fantastic how they so effectively merge the services!

I am so bad with change, coins! Arh! So I charge my money into cards. Meantime, I could collect points to redeem some freebies too. :)

Thanks for dropping by. :)
