Collectibles: Coca Cola

Different people collect different kind of things as hobbies. And I've chosen Coca-cola as my collectibles. I was actually introduced by a friend of mine who studied in Australia. When he came back he showed me these cute little coke cans which you can never find them in Malaysia back in those days. Since then I developed and interest to collect Cokes.

Whenever my family and relatives goes trave, they'll get me Coke from which ever countries they travelled to. In Malaysia, some how Cokes are not really that interesting compared to other countries. I have no idea why but that is the way. I do have bits and pieces of the Cokes collectibles compare to some of those hardcore fans. Recently I came across a website for Coke collectibles in Hong Kong and there are so many Coke cans and bottles design which I wish to own and obviously the price is not cheap.


A brief history lesson:
Coca-cola is a carbonated soft drink sold in stores, restaurants and vending machines in more than 200 countries. It is produced by The Coca-cola Company and is often referred to simply as medicine when it was invented in the late 19th century by John Stith Pemberton, Coca-Cola was bought out by business man Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft drink market throughout the 20th centry.
