Only in Asia


Yup. That is what it looks like.

A mashed potato machine.

For only S$1.20, you to can have a cup of mashed potatoes with gravy dispensed directly from a machine at 7-11.

We we're walking through the mall after visiting Ikea and Jack said he was thirsty. We all wanted a drink, so Jack and I waited outside while Melissa went in and got 2 waters and a pineapple slurpee.

I looked through the glass door to see where Melissa was in the line and saw this machine. I shouldn't have been, but I really was pretty impressed. Now I know that when I'm walking past 7-11 and I just happen to get a craving for mashed potatoes and gravy, I'm all set.

And if you're wondering if I tried any...I did not. I'd just eaten 4 slices of pizza and I was full. I'll go back another time and report on the quality of 7-11 mashed potatoes.

Are they planning on exporting those machines to the the U.S.?

Is that why they need naval engineers over there, to inspect the gravy boats?

If I had one of those on the ships and rigs I've worked on, I'd have never left the mess deck.
