Invasion of the vending machines

A sight that is more commonly found in Japan than in Singapore.

Spotted just outside International Plaza (facing the MRT exit) –  a row of vending machines that dispense neither food/snacks nor drinks.

Reminded me of the vending machine cafe that was launched recently and located in some remote corner in Sengkang (Blk 320C along Anchorvale Drive).  It supposedly dishes out hot food such as Nasi Goreng Istimewa or Vegetarian Rice Noodle with tables and chairs where can tuck into meals in comfort. Sounds a bit sad but I can understand – need hot food at weird hours, find a vending machine cafe.

But a vending machine that can dispense non-essential items such as jewelry, phone cases, knick knack? Why would it even be something I need to get at weird hours or because I am walking by?

Intriguing. We shall see how long they can last.
