As part of Coca-Cola‘s Live Positively initiative – Coca-Cola’s commitment to making a positive difference in the world, I am one of two bloggers from Singapore (the other is Walter Lim) to fly to Shanghai for the World Expo 2010 to witness the launch of the Coca-Cola pavilion, explore their new Global Innovation and Technology Centre, as well as attend various event such as Coca-Cola’s Founder’s Day ceremony and an Expo Celebration Concert.
How cool is that?
I also get to fly Business Class and stay at the luxurious, Hyatt on the Bund. This is a world of difference for a usually budget traveler like me.
Walter and I met up with the Coca-Cola representative last Friday and she gave us a short briefing on the trip, a press kit, some marketing collateral and even a personalised leather luggage tag.
I am really looking forward to the trip. The Shanghai Expo was initially one of my short-listed honeymoon destination. Rachel and I opted for Sydney in the end, but now, I still get to visit the Expo after all.
I am serving the last day of my current ICT this Wednesday, following which I will fly to Shanghai the next day. What an awesome way to reward myself after a torturous three weeks standing in the hot sun to feed mosquitoes.
