Up close inside the journey of Coca-Cola bottles


 Coca-Cola has been part of the Philippines’ culture for more than a hundred years and the brand, aside from producing beverages, has touched a lot of lives, especially those who have been given opportunities to represent Coca-Cola in the market and sari-sari stores.

Rosa and Coca-Cola FEMSA Canlubang Plant to see up close how the bottles and beverages are produced, from a walk through of the plant’s bottling line to the comprehensive overview of production process, starting from raw materials, ingredients (the beverages are composed mainly of water, sweeteners, […]

KUJAKU BOTTLE 500ML (PHP 1099.75) / 600ML (PHP 1299.75)

Kujaku Bottle, a handy vacuum tumbler from Japan


 Kujaku in Japanese means ‘peacock’ and as far as English dictionary is concern, what I remembered about the peacock is its colorful feathers that brightly display to show-off the bird’s captivating beauty. Maybe that’s why this bottle, labeled in Japan, by The Peacock Vacuum Bottle Co., Ltd., was called Kujaku.

For me, I am taking this everywhere. I discovered this product through a friend and now […]
