A picture of one of the many rubbish bins in my office. Most people from this part of the world would know what that white thing in the bin is. But for the benefit of my visitors from the other parts of the world, that white thing is a polystyrene (I believe known as the Styrofoam in America) container which is commonly used to pack food, otherwise locally referred to as tapau.
I wonder if anyone has conducted any research on how many tons of these polystyrene containers would end up at the garbage dumping ground everyday. Although I myself have not done any research, I bet it's possible to see at least a 30% to 40% increase in the use of polystyrene containers like the above between now and the second week of September.
Sorry, folks, no special prizes for those who can guess why I deduced such an increase.
