The Singapore Yakult Factory

Expats Jim and Venitha went on a tour of the Yakult factory here in Singapore. Yes, that's right. There's a Yakult factory here! From Singapore Adventure:
Singapore is the only country where Yakult is available in flavors (orange, grape, and apple) other than the original. And here I thought the original flavor was pretty much orange.

The coolest machine in the factory was not the one that fills the bottles and not the one that puts the foil lids on and not the one that plastic wraps them into neat little rows of five. Nope, it was the one that makes the bottles. Sixteen at a time, every couple of seconds, by plastic injection molding. I could have watched that machine for hours.
